Ever since world famous director Hayao Miyazaki retired from the animation industry in 2013, fans have speculated who the Oscar-winner's heir will be.

The film has earned enough to even be on par with Miyazaki's features, in fact.

"No and I don't think they'd even ask me," he said. Shinkai elaborated that his style and Studio Ghibli's are really nothing alike. He answered humbly that Ghibli's films are about "craftsmanship" that bring characters to life while his are "a series of stop-motions."
