The love of Japanese high school students Mikako Nagamine and Noboru Tera is tested when Mikako is sent to fight aliens in a distant universe and voice mails to and from Earth become months to years in transmission.
A 15-year-old boy and 27-year-old woman find an unlikely friendship one rainy day in the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. These two broken pieces come together and heal one another as they learn what it is to walk.
Told in three interconnected segments, we follow a young man named Takaki through his life as cruel winters, cold technology, and finally, adult obligations and responsibility converge to test the delicate petals of love.
"Neko nu shukai" or "A Gathering of Cats" is a Japanese really short film from almost 10 years ago. In fact, it only runs for one minute and was written and directed by Makoto Shinkai, a fairly successful anime director from the Asian country. This one here shows us how the owner of a cat constantly step on the animal's tail and the cat is angry and plans to destroy the city with some other cats in something like an atomic explosion. However, then the cats gets food and attention and all is fine again, or is it really? I liked the animation here, but still it was a pretty strange film. Felt really all over the place to me. It went so fast and they certainly could have made this one 5 minutes long instead. Not really a great watch, Shinkai has much better works in his body of work. Not recommended.
