A fellow anime blogger put up an interesting post yesterday about how Shinkai's females have evolved from She and Her Cat to The Place Promised in Our Early Days with a few screenshots of the main heroines to compare.  He hasn't watched Five Centimeters Per Second yet, so please don't spoil it for him (even if there really isn't much to spoil).

In related news, I created a blog post of my own that was a play on his.  This time, it was the evolution of Chobi the cat's role in Shinkai's work...  I've included screenshots too. Smile

I can't get enough of Chobi.

Think Shinkai will keep on using Chobi in his next works?

I'm sure he will, especially in cameo roles where it wouldn't seem out of place for him to appear.  Basically, he's a character that only the fans that have watched all of his movies would pick up on, but even if the viewer doesn't know this, Chobi tended to be in scenes that are more "pillow shots".  

Though, his appearance in Five Centimeters Per Second may have had a mild fore-shadowing role: "It's Chobi! ...  Where's Mimi?"

Maybe someone should create a "Chobi the cat" shrine?   Laughing

I think Chobi is the "icon" of Shinkai's works. It could be really effective.

I was thinking the same thing Junpei, it's a fact Chobi is an icon. For a fan you will understand the reference, but for someone else, it would fit in just as well.
