Let's have a contest ....

1) .... Guess the Year, Month and Date when you think (hope) the next Shinkai film will be released. Closest to the day will get a point towards the contest going on at the time of release.

2) .... Give us a guess as to what the story will be about ... Do you think it will be a love triangle, war film, in english or japanese .... give as much detail as you like. The person with the best guess will get a point towards the contest going on at the time of the release.

I'll go first ....

1 - I think the next film will be officially released in march of 2010 (I know ... very sad t think it will be that long). I'll pick my BDay .. 3/19/2010.

2. I think the next film will be in English and will be about a Japanese student who comes to Europe/some western country and how that student learns to fit in with new people in a new country. Somewhat autobiographical story of Shinkai living in the UK now.

Ok .... those are my guesses ... your turn Smile

1. January 2010
2. YOU TOOK MINE! Except that I think it will be in Japanese and center around a girl finding her place in a new city (I'll say London) and the world in general. That's too similar to yours... I'll try and think of something else.

23 April 2010.

A difficult relationship due to different cultures and languages, enhanced further by unfamilar surroundings but somehow manages to learn and cope with it. Ends with a message that no matter who you are, what your languages or customs are, thoughts and emotions are the same.

I'm no good with things such as this.

Dammit, my idea sounds pretty much like Junpei's.. Looks like we all think alike  Very Happy  I'll just settle for guessing the date... 14th July 2011. Think we'll all still be around until that year? Man, I dunno...

Hmm.... Junpeis idea seems very possible... lets add some sci-fi in there. Now these two people are from different planets in the solar system, there's lots of lasers and explotions and stuff going pew pew. Due to all the pew pew lasers everywhere they both lose contact, the main character is sad.


I'm thinking winter 2012 since he's staying in englend for a year more I think production for this movie will take 3 years since it's going to be alot larger scale.

HA HA HA .. Menasha .. that funny ... needing to add that sci-fi aspect Smile ha ha ha ..

Hmmmm ... Based upon our answers ... since we all kinda of have the same ideas .... do you think Shinkai is too predictable ?

I'd love to see something that none of us could predict, from Shinkai Smile

I hope Shinkai will come up with something none of us expects. I'll change my guess for the release date up another year or two. Or three.

To be studying overseas for that long must mean a big production.

I, too, think he will take another direction with the next project. As for the date, I can only guess that, if he's already heading back to Japan, probably sometime in 2010 or 2011 at the earliest. Sorry, I'm not much of a gambler.

I'm gonna go for and hope for summer or winter 2010. I dont think we can hope for any earlier so that seems plausible.

Reason i'm saying summer or winter 2010 also is that i finish my course at school in summer 2010 so i'll have a nice relaxing summer ahead and new shinkai film then would be awesome. Winter may be when i'm settling into university and again, a new Shinkai piece would be lovely.

I'm gonna push my hopes even more by saying i want him to do a piece in the vain of steamboy. Not neccessarily action based but set in the past. I'd like to see how he'd interprit that. Then again i'd also love to see more of the same.
