Makoto Shinkai’s ‘Suzume’ Will Release This April

On the other side of the door, was time in its entirety— Suzume is a coming-of-age story for the 17-year-old protagonist, Suzume, set in various disaster-stricken locations across Japan, where she must close the doors causing devastation.
Suzume is the latest film by acclaimed Japanese director Makoto Shinkai (Your Name, Weathering with You). Shinkai’s previous groundbreaking films have been instrumental in introducing a new audience to the creative power of anime. Suzume appears to have more of an action adventure feel than Shinkai’s romantic works. Anime fans old and new can look forward to Suzume when it releases in US theaters April 14th.
