Sorry for the late reply! I was kept busy by another clump of deadlines and now that graduation is nearing, it's time to find a job (or further my studies?)!

Anyway, I think there remains a lot to be said about Shinkai's stuff, for instance the ending sequence (the montage) that is in Voices and in 5cm. For 5cm, I get the impression that words are no longer enough to express what our protagonist feels, we have to reach out for another medium and that is music. If you look at from the context of Voices, there seems to be an evolution of style here. And if you take into consideration how powerful music acts as a cue in Shinkai's films, then I think it reinforces aforementioned point.

Cheers!
