* GRatedSex: The scene where Takao holds Yukari's feet to measure it and sketch its outline is filmed very erotically. From a thematic perspective, this scene is a turning point in the two's relationship, and how intimate the two are in this scene show this very clearly.

Released in May 2013, ''The Garden of Words'' is the fifth film Creator/MakotoShinkai has directed. The film follows Takao Akizuki (voiced by Creator/MiyuIrino), a fifteen-year-old student aspiring to be a shoemaker. On rainy days, Takao skips his morning classes and spends his time in Shinjuku Gyoen, a Japanese-style garden. During one of his excursions, he encounters Yukari Yukino (voiced by Creator/KanaHanazawa), a twenty-seven year old woman. As the two encounter each other more frequently, they gradually open up to one another and confide in one another their problems, finding comfort in the other's presence in spite of their age differences.

* AdultsAreUseless: The adults present in the film do very little to assist Takao; his mother is an often absent ditz chasing romances and contributing little to household finances, and his brother is well meaning but somewhat condescending, and moves out halfway through the film. As for Yukari, despite her age she does not fit in with the adult world, finding herself unable to solve her own problems, and her coworkers did nothing about the rumors that forced her out of the school.
