Sentai Filmworks has announced that it has licensed the newest film by Makoto Shinkai, The Garden of Words (Kotonoha no Niwa). The film will be released later this year on bilingual Blu-ray Disc and DVD.


The Garden of Words is a story of the traditional Japanese word for love, Koi, meaning lonely sadness. The story follows Takao, an aspiring shoemaker who sketches shoes in a Japanese-style garden. There, he meets an mysterious older woman named Yukino, and their relationship deepens.


Shinkai Makoto (5 Centimeters Per Second, Children Who Chase Lost Voices) directs, and the characters were designed by Kenichi Tsuchiya. Takao is voiced by Miyu Irino, while Kana Hanazawa voices Yukino. The world premiere of the movie will be held at Australia’s Gold Coast Film Festival on April 28th.
