Makoto Shinkai is celebrating 15 years in the anime industry. The exhibition has different panels from all his previous works, and storyboards from some of his movies. The scenes were carefully chosen to depict the best of his works.
For those who can’t be at AnimeJapan, we have permission to share pictures of the storyboards with you!
A storyboard can provide more insights on how a character thinks and moves. One of the most memorable scenes from Kimi no Na wa (Your Name) is where Mitsuha writes ‘Baka’ (Idiot!) on her face; in the storyboard she actually wrote ‘Aho!’ (also: Idiot!).
At he booth fans could get their memory pictures taken, buy many limited edition goods, and see an exhibition with other products of Comix Wave Films.

Makoto Shinkai also announced on Twitter that there will be an exhibition this year about his work. He calls the exhibition at AnimeJapan ‘a preview.’ The exhibition will be open to all, so his fans have something to look forward to.
