Season's Greetings: Makoto Shinkai is making a new movie

Are you ready for some more breathtaking skies and scenery?

I am going to be perfectly honest with everyone on here, I'm not the biggest Shinkai fan around here. Though I will admit that his movies do get better with each new film that pops out of his mind. Before you smite me with your rage, I didn't say anything about hating his works, it's just that I don't see him as the next Miyazaki that most folks make him out to be. With that said, I still have plans to see Children who chase Lost Voices, since I still want to keep track of his growth in skills.

But enough about my feelings towards Shinkai, because the man is going to be working on a new movie known as Kotonoha no Niwa (Garden of Words or Garden of Thousands Pieces of Word). His next film is going to focus on the word that we refer to as love. However, he intends to use "love" in the way that follows the traditional Japanese take on the word. The movie is going to take place in modern times, and there's going to be a connection to the sadness of being alone, which I'm assuming that he is going to give us a new take on the meaning of being lonely -- forever alone. 

Kotonoha no Niwa will arrive in Japanese theater during the first half of 2013, and if we are lucky, his movie might get a con screening in the future for the people that live in the west. Until more updates surface, you can take a gander at the promotional art piece for the movie in the section after the jump.
