As promised, here I am with my little review of Kimi no wa. background artbook!

About this great movie has been said everything and beyond, almost everyone on the globe has already seen it, if you haven't yet...what are you waiting for?!?!

Just like the previous movies artbooks, it's B5 and comes with a slipcase:

and now the unmistakable Shinkai's background art:

almost all of the book has full-page illustrations.

there aren't character designs or sketches, only background.

sorry if this blog is picture heavy, but I've found it really hard to choose which pic upload, every page is a mastepiece!

the background below is for the restaurant in which Taki Tachibana works...and the name is in Italian ;) it's "il Giardino delle Parole" Garden of words. love the italian choice and the reference to another great movie!

I've watched the movie recently but I have to admit that I couldn't remember all the backgrounds, so I'm very pleased to be able to admire art that would otherwise have slipped out of sight!

my artbook collection of Makoto Shinkai works so far:

as you can see, in this blog I've kept the words to a minimum, because just like in a Shinkai's movie, much can be said just with images. ^_^

Wow, the book looks amazing! And they really know the highlight of the art are the backgrounds huh? xD I'm not a huge fan of the movie (like someone said, plot holes, although it was enjoyable) but I'd definitely love to have this book.

Well, this is a weird movie. Quite enjoyable to watch (and rewatch) but plague with plot holes beyond compare. That said, I still stand firm behind the "quite enjoyable" label and the backgrounds played a significant part in the appreciation. I've got vivid memories of beautiful sweeping vistas. It's nice they recognized that fact and put together that book. Many pics you shown us would stand for themselves in an art gallery. Very neat stuff! Thanks for sharing your passion... and book!

Whoa, this looks amazing! I love the dull colors in the front. It makes it look dreamy and fantastical.

The backgrounds look great and sort of remind me of Studio Ghibli's work.

I want one now.

Thanks for sharing this! And don't worry about it being picture heavy. I love pictures *_*
