Trailer For Makoto Shinkai's The Garden Of Words

The first trailer has been released for Makoto Shinkai's next feature film, Kotonoha no Niwa, known as The Garden Of Words in English.

Here's the official synopsis:

Takao was skipping high school, sketching shoes in a Japanese garden, trying to become a shoemaker, when he encounters a mysterious woman, Yukino. Without arranging it they end up meeting again and again, only on rainy days, deepening their relationship and opening up to each other. But the end of the rainy season soon approaches...

Shinkai wrote the screenplay as well as directing, while Kenichi Tuchiya is serving as Animation Director and Character Designer.

Hiroshi Takiguchi, who worked on Kenji Kamiyama's 009 RE:CYBORG is the film's Art Director, while Daisuke Kashiwa is composing the music.

If you read Japanese, check out the film's official website and official Facebook.

For English-speaking fans, the movie's production company, CoMix Wave Films, has an English-language Facebook page.

The Garden Of Words opens in Japan on 31 May 2013 and hopefully will follow the rest of Shinkai's works in being picked up for a UK release.
