The creator of the anime “Garden of Words” and “Your Name” Makoto Shinkai spoke in his blog about the progress of work on the next tape. The director has been working on a new anime since last summer, but he still has a lot of work ahead of him.
I did a rough draft in April, wrote six stories and rewrote the script three times. In August, I finished the final cut and continued with the storyboarding.
The work will take over a year.
No specific details of the anime have yet been disclosed. Shinkai hopes production will start later this year.
Shinkai’s last film is considered “Nature Child”, which was released in 2019 and hit the top 10 highest-grossing films in Japan. The anime was warmly received by critics and audiences.
