Though this isn't directly Shinkai's workáfrom what I can tell, it might be related. áFirst, check it out:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeJHYRRz6Og

You can also see it on Taisei's site: http://www.taisei.co.jp/about_us/library/cm/tvcm/index.html

Some notes - The director for this commercial seems to be Tazawa Shio, the chief animation director for The Place Promised in Our Early Days. á

What's more interesting is some speculation on the Japanese blogs: The woman in the video is Akari from Five Centimeters Per Second, and the man is her husband. áGranted, this is only conjecture, but the resemblance is definitely there. á

Via Iwa ni Hana.

Leave it to a mega-corporation to keep Shinkai fans happy. It'd be nice if they'd help fund his next project.

Just posted this comment on Iwa ni Hana:

Looking on ANN for Ushio Tazawa[1] shows that he also did animation work for several Studio 4C works (Beyond and Kids Story segments from The Animatrix, Table and Fishman, and Mind Game) and did animation work for Egao, the music video Shinkai directed.

I'm especially interested in the link in the Beyond short; it was my favorite in the Animatrix collection for its visuals, theme, and mood. I might have to watch it right before and after watching The Place Promised to see if Tazawa brought some techniques into The Place Promised and this commercial. And I'd be interested to see Tazawa do more work in animation...
