Hoshi o ou kodomo (Children Who Chase Lost Voices From Deep Below) - Makoto Shinkai / The latest movie of Shinkai, a movie about death, purpose and saying goodbye. Some will criticize him for moving away from his more original approach in his earlier movies to a more Ghibli like style, but the result is a more accessible beautifully animated tale.
Kotonoha no Niwa - The Garden of Words by Makoto Shinkai
Kimi no Na wa (your name). Per Makoto Shinkai the movie supposed to come out first (Due to some troubles) the book was released. This book was captivating and let's your imagination go crazy. I cried laughed and everything in between. The movie made it even better.
