After the extraordinary success of Akira

a new appointment for all lovers of Japanese animation





Two days of marathon dedicated to the artist considered Hayao’s heir Miyazaki:

He is considered by many to be the only true heir of Hayao Miyazaki. And this year it celebrates its 50th birthday.

To pay homage Makoto Shinkai and his art, Digital Nexus and Dynit, fresh from the public success of the 35th anniversary of Akira, they organize two evening-marathons with the screening of two masterpieces by Maestro Shinkai: Your Name. e The Garden of Words. The appointment is set for 23 May (screenings in the original language with Italian subtitles) and for 24 May (screenings in the Italian dubbed version)when the Season of Anime at the Cinema will bring the two beloved Shinkai titles to theaters (cinema list coming soon on nexodigital.it).

As the most attentive fans know well, the link between the two titles is subtle but clear: in Your Name. a restaurant appears that calls itself The Garden of Words and the female protagonist attends the school where the protagonist de teaches The Garden of Words.

The two films, moreover, also question themselves on the same theme: that of human relationships and their complexity. The Garden of Words tells the story of Takao, a young student who dreams of becoming a shoe designer. One day Takao decides to skip school to go drawing in a delightful and secluded public garden. He doesn’t imagine that this decision will completely change his life thanks to the meeting with the mysterious Yukino. Older than him but certainly not wiser, Yukino seems adrift in a world in which she no longer recognizes herself. Despite the age difference, the relationship between the two develops slowly thanks to the continuous meetings in that same garden every rainy day. But the rainy season is coming to an end and so many things are left unfinished… Will Takao still have time to express his true feelings to the woman he loves? Your name. instead it accompanies us in the life of Mitsuha and Taki. Mitsuha is a student who lives in a small rural town and wants to move to Tokyo, in the big metropolis where every dream can come true. Taki is a high school student who lives in Tokyo, has a part-time job in an Italian restaurant, but would like to work in the field of art or architecture. One night, Mitsuha dreams of being a young man, finds himself in a room she doesn’t know, has new friends and the Tokyo skyline opens before her gaze. At the same time, Taki dreams of being a little girl living in a small mountain town that she has never visited. But what will be the secret behind these strange crossed dreams?
