This week we’re chasing a chair, who’s chasing a cat, who’s chasing a worm, all while discussing the brand new Shinkai anime hit ‘Suzume’.
Suzume (Japanese: すずめの戸締まり, Hepburn: Suzume no Tojimari, lit. "Suzume's Locking Up") is a 2022 Japanese animated fantasy adventure film written and directed by Makoto Shinkai, produced by CoMix Wave Films, and distributed by Toho. The film features the voices of Nanoka Hara and Hokuto Matsumura, with the character designs by Masayoshi Tanaka, animation direction by Kenichi Tsuchiya, art direction by Takumi Tanji, and music by Radwimps and Kazuma Jinnouchi. Suzume is Shinkai's third collaboration with Radwimps and Tanaka, after Your Name (2016) and Weathering with You (2019), and was inspired by the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. The film follows 17-year-old high school student Suzume Iwato and Souta Munakata, who team up to prevent a series of disasters across Japan.
