How to watch ‘Suzume’? – Makoto Shinkai gained worldwide recognition after his 2016 anime movie ‘Your Name’ became a mega-hit. Prior to this, anime movies were mostly associated with the gentle beauty of Studio Ghibli. But ‘Your Name’ not only showcased Shinkai’s breathtaking visuals and incredibly detailed storytelling but also made everyone aware that his future projects were a must-see.
After the success of ‘Your Name,’ Makoto Shinkai’s 2019 project ‘Weathering With You’ didn’t quite live up to the hype but still showcased his remarkable storytelling skills. Now, with his latest film Suzume no Tojimari, Shinkai promises yet another exciting and emotionally engaging adventure.
In Shinkai’s latest film, Suzume, a 17-year-old girl encounters a mysterious young man who speaks of a door in her quiet town of Kyushu. She soon discovers a weathered door standing tall among ruins, and as she reaches for the knob, doors begin to open all across Japan, causing destruction and chaos. She discovers that she possesses a unique ability to close these portals and prevent further devastation. The film features stunning visuals of the stars, sunsets, and morning sky that guide Suzume on her perilous journey to close the doors and save Japan.
The movie has been well-received by both critics and audiences alike. It’s a captivating story of adventure and self-discovery, with reviewers praising its dazzling visuals and emotional depth.
Suzume Voice Cast
Suzume, like Shinkai’s previous works, features a star-studded voice cast. Nanoka Hara takes the lead as Suzume Iwato, while Hokuto Matsumura, Eri Fukatsu, and Hakuo Matsumoto play supporting roles. Other notable cast members include Shôta Sometani, Sairi Itô, Kotone Hanase, and Kana Hanazawa.

How to watch ‘Suzume’ Online?
At the moment, there’s no news of the new hit movie being available for streaming anywhere. The distributors have chosen to have an exclusive theatrical release, given Shinkai’s popularity.
However, there’s a slight chance that the movie may be released on Crunchyroll in a few months. Although there’s no confirmation yet, considering that Crunchyroll previously released Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero in theaters and on their website, we may expect the same and expect it to release by the end of the year.
