Today is Shinkai Day, a day to celebrate the famous anime director, Makoto Shinkai and his work. Fans of Mr. Shinkai are all gathering worldwide in the internet on the unofficial English-language fansite, Cherry Blossoms Falling.
The unofficial Chinese-language fansite will be showcasing fan-made short films inspired by Mr. Shinkai's works. The Unofficial Japanese-language fansite will be participating as well.
Over at Crunchy Roll, they will be streaming for free Mr. Shinkai's Voices of a Distant Star, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, and 5 Centimeters Per Second. Voices of a Distant Star and The Place Promised in Our Early Days will be subtitled and 5 Centimeters Per Second will be available with Subtitles and dubbed in the Bandai version of the English dub. I think that the ADV dubbing of 5 Centimeters is a little better.
So, are you a fan of Makoto Shinkai and his work or are you going to past on this worldwide event?
