Hello Everyone!

My name is André, I'm from Brazil, and I'm a great fan of Mr. Shinkai! Actually, he's one of my top favourite directors, together with Mr. Hayao Miyazaki.

The very first Shinkai work I've seen was Hoshi no Koe a few years ago... I guess that's why I consider it to be my favourite. I remember it called my attention because of the name... voices of a distant star... after watching, I couldn't explain how much I loved it! So I've watched all the main Shinkai's works since then and was also wondered by them =]

So, even though I don't have much free time, I've joined the forum, so that I can discuss a little about his amazing films.

Welcome to the forums Andre, I have no idea how to type accents XD

There will we more to discus in the coming years. For now we just doddle around haha. Ever so often someone joins with something related to Shinkai so there's a little discussion there.

Hi everyone.

The only anime I'd seen before Shinkai's work was Howle's Moving Castle and whatever junk they played on weekday mornings like pokemon or dragon ball z.

I happened across "Voices of a Distant Star" four days ago (Monday) - it played at around 1am on a local tv channel. The affect it had on me was unlike anything else I've ever watched or listened to. In the last four days I've hunted down copies of Voices, "She and Her Cat" (Tuesday), "The Place Promised in Our Early Days" (Wednesday) and, just tonight (Friday), - "5 Centimeters per Second". I also just watched Tooi Sekai.

After spending my whole life distancing myself from anime I'm amazed at how one man's work has so completely changed the way I look at things.

All this has also introduced me to the works of Tenmon, which I am blown away by. His simple piano melodies differ greatly from the other stuff I've been listening to lately, but I feel like it's all taking me in a new creative direction - and that's something I'm excited about.

It's great to find a community of fans such as this. I eagerly anticipate Shinkai's next work, whenever that will be...
