If only this was a full film or a movie
31 May 2018 | by WeAreLiveSee all my reviews

Honestly Makoto could have made this 2 minute commercial into a full movie if he tried to. This movie could have been right up with Your Name and 5cm per second. But nooo!

There is not much for me to spoil or talk about here. If you want to watch it just look it up on Youtube but it is not dubbed.

If it does get dubbed I would want someone like Max Mittleman or Kyle McCarley to voice Shota and Alexis Tipton or Christine Marie to voice Miho.

Since this short is only 4 years old I hope Makoto actually decides to do a series or a movie of this
