She and Her Cat

She and Her Cat

As the seasons pass, a lone stray cat reminisces of life with his master. He talks of the small passions of their time together, and how their shared affection gives them each a reason to be alive. Speaking both of love gained and love lost, he chronicles the eternal nature of their bond, as despite their own respective heartaches they still have each other. The two converse in a touching tale of the true strength of friendship in the face of hardship.

All of Makoto Shinkai's works (5 Centimeters per Second, Beyond the Clouds, The Promised Place, Voices of a Distant Star, She and Her Cat) present a visually stunning contemplation of loneliness and the pursuit of an unattainable goal. His characters find themselves psychologically isolated, often while living in an environment full of people. While this is not an uncommon character trait in anime, Makoto Shinkai's creates this mentality in a very realistic way.

Bessie Bessie says...

Though 'Beyond the Clouds' and 'She and Her cat' are not that similar at all, they're both created by the same director and that's why they have very similar, melancholic mood.

Interlude

Interlude

In Japan, there is a disturbing rumor being spread that people's shadows are ripping from their bodies, never to be seen again. For one young man, the frightening nature of this rumor is just beginning to manifest in the form of a nightmarish world that he can't seem to escape from. In this place full of dark minions and demons, he and his friends fight futilely against unknown enemies, only to be brought back to the "real world" as quickly as they left it. Is this real, or a dream? Only one person holds the key to destroying and saving the world as he knows it...

Interlude is like Beyond The Clouds, The Promised Place(aka The Promised Place of Our Younger Days) because they both deal with how people percieve reality. There is also a girl character in each of these stories that is in almost the exact situation as the other, I can't really say more without ruining the story.

Kanon 2006 carries a style similar to Beyond the Clouds, as though it's at times upbeat, it has its fair share of solemn moments as well. Though the general story concepts are different and provide for different atmospheres, if its romantic aspects appealed to you then Kanon 2006 would be a good place to turn. Not a guaranteed hit, but I found my appreciation of the two to fall under many of the same categories. Also, if it helps, Kanon 2006 has stunning animation to boot along with a beautiful soundtrack, so the environments provide for similar sensual pleasure.

Yukikaze

Yukikaze

In the distant future, Earth is being invaded by a mysterious alien race known as the JAM. Though suffering heavy casualties, mankind unites and repels their advance, pushing them back to their homeworld of Fairy. As to not take any chances of another attack, an expeditionary force is formed to pursue and eradicate any who managed to flee. The campaign is successful, with all but a few small pockets of JAM completely destroyed, and preparations are made for the fleet to return to home. Enter Leiutenant Rei Fukai, the pilot of a reconnaissance fighter jet known as the Yukikaze. With victory close at hand, he is assigned to do one final sweep of Fairy to put an end of the threat for good. However, during the flight, he is attacked by an unknown jet that appears to one of mankind's own, and barely manages to escape. Though the JAM are all but gone, it seems a new, more deadly threat has emerged, fiercely determined to stop the fleet from returning home alive...

This is somewhat of an odd recommendation, as it's purely by standard of animation. If you enjoyed Beyond the Clouds' visual feast and have an interest in some more gorgeous aesthetics, check Yukikaze out. Not nearly as good in terms of story or characters, but it's got amazing CGI and a number of nice musical tracks. Eye candy is the name of the game.

Airships, the edge of the war, and an unreachable goal are themes "Porco Rosso" and "The Place Promised in Our Early Days" have in common. "Porco Rosso" seems more funny and realistic, despite the fact that the main character IS a mixture of pig and human. The destinations of the main characters of the two anime are alike: in both, the characters must reach something indescribable, something that is very far away (of course, they will reach it with an airship). And after they have finished their journey, all unnatural things will end and the world will go on, as it should. If you don't mind the lack of humour in "The Place promised in Our Early Days", you'll like both of these movies — the main themes are very similar.
