What is 'Suzume No Tojiamari' About?

“Suzume, a 17-year-old girl who lives in a quiet town in Kyushu, meets a young man on a journey “looking for doors.”

Suzume follows him from a ruin to a dilapidated building in the mountains and finds a free-standing, undisturbed door t as if “it” alone were saved from devastation.

Garden Of Words: The Enormous Love b/w Takao Akizuki&Yukino
The Garden of words, a great masterpiece, is centred around the main concept of finding someone in the midst of solitude. The whole purpose of rain is to reinforce this idea of finding love at a time of loneliness, because rain can be a symbol of sadness or even loneliness.

Suzume feels drawn by an invisible power and reaches out to the door… Soon, doors all over Japan start opening one after another.

The doors that opened must be closed to shut out the calamity that lies on the other side.

Stars, sunset, and the morning sky. The places she wanders into have a sky where all hours of the day seem to blend together.

Beckoned by the mysterious doors, Suzume’s “journey of closing doors” begins.”

Shinkai will serve as the director, the story and the screenplay writer while Masayoshi Tanaka will work on character design, Kenichi Tsuchiya will serve as the animation director and Takumi Tanji will be the art director.

Stay tuned for the official trailer and release date of Suzume no Tojimari.
