About The Garden of Words DVD
From director Makoto Shinkai comes Garden of Words, a touching coming of age story about meetings in the rain.
When Takao, a young high school student who dreams of becoming a shoe designer, decides to skip school one day in favor of sketching in a rainy garden, he has no idea how much his life will change when he encounters Yukino. Older but perhaps not as much wiser, she seems adrift in the world. Despite the difference in their ages, they strike up an unusual relationship that unexpectedly continues and evolves, with random meetings in the same garden on each rainy day.
But the rainy season is coming to a close, and there are so many things still left unsaid and undone between them. Will there be time left for Takao to put his feelings into actions and words? Between the raindrops, between the calms in the storm, what will blossom?

Ratings & Reviews
a little love story mixed with a coming of age story and a lot of ❤
The anime film is very good. It will leave you wondering what if after you see it. It is a great anime to watch. And you connect 38th the main characters a little not too. It's worth watching.
Makoto Shinkai artwork can't be compared
Makoto Shinkai never disappoints. I will forever look forward to his ever improving (though already excellent) artwork. Just when you think it can't get any better, it does.
The artwork itself will keep you captivated. His story lines are usually short, oddly intriguing and never take a turn you'd expect. This particular storyline holds no magical/out of this world elements, yet still tells a story you wouldn't expect.
I recommend this for Makoto Shinkai collectors and short film animation collectors. :)
In terms of packaging, it's extremely simple. Just the DVD and the case.
A gorgeous film to check out
by Daniel -
I acquired this movie cause it was on sale and I heard that it was really good. The whole film was gorgeous to look at and the music fit the mood really well. The dub sounded great, although a few scenes could've had a tad more feeling put in them. This also seems like a film that requires multiple watches to understand and appreciate everything. In all, it was pretty good, but I feel like it could of used a little bit more to make me more invested. It does make me want to check out Makoto Shinkai's other works though.
