First Look at Miyazaki’s New Manga
The 72-year-old legend, Hayao Miyazaki, has said to retire after his latest film, The Wind Rises, releases. Well, The Wind Rises was released in June of Japan and will release early next year in the United States, but it seems like Miyazaki is enjoying his “retirement,” by working on something new: a manga based off of samurai in the Warring States era of Japan. No word on this manga releasing soon, but it’s a promising bit of info for those wanting more from Miyazaki, post-directing!
For those who don’t know, in 5 Centimeters Per Second, Akari & Takaki’s childhood setting is based on the real world Shinjuku, Tokyo, which interesting enough, is also the setting of Director Makoto Shinkai’s latest work Garden of Words, the areas shown in 5CM/S is just about few miles away from Shinjuku Goyen, the main setting of Garden of Words.

it is unacceptable that the real-life photographs are somehow more beautiful than the anime
