According to Makoto Shinkai
, the film's central theme is loneliness. This was inspired by the Man'yoshu, Japan's oldest collection of poems; in that volume, love was represented by the word "koi", or "lonely sadness"; more accurately, a longing for someone in solitude. Shinkai described the film as a love story towards people who feel lonely or incomplete in their social relations, but who don't feel that they need to fix this loneliness. See more
