The Garden of Words

 (2013)

The Garden of Words Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

When Takao, a young high school student who dreams of becoming a shoe designer, decides to skip school one day in favor of sketching in a rainy garden, he has no idea how much his life will change when he encounters Yukino. Older, but perhaps not as much wiser, she seems adrift in the world. Despite the difference in their ages, they strike up an unusual relationship that unexpectedly continues and evolves, without planning, with random meetings that always occur in the same garden on each rainy day. But the rainy season is coming to a close, and there are so many things still left unsaid and undone between them.

For more about The Garden of Words and the The Garden of Words Blu-ray release, see the The Garden of Words Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Miyu Irino, Kana Hanazawa

The Garden of Words Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Garden of Words is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Sentai Filmworks with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This is quite simply a stunningly animated piece which makes the transition to high definition with flawless precision. The piece is a really winning combination of CGI and more traditional hand drawn techniques, but it offers an almost immersive visual approach that is exceedingly dimensional, an aspect which pops incredibly well on this Blu-ray. The really lovely renditions of the rainy environs of the park come through very clearly as well, with absolutely no artifacts despite a glut of parallel lines streaming down at times. Line detail is very sharp, colors are beautifully modulated and nicely saturated, and this is certainly one of the most visually sumptuous pieces we've seen from Sentai Filmworks in a long, long while.


The Garden of Words Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Garden of Words offers lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mixes in both Japanese and English. There's no appreciable difference between these two tracks other than the obvious languages. Both of these tracks are extremely subtle at times, washing nicely rendered ambient environmental sounds (bird calls, the ripple of water, torrential downpours) through the soundfield and creating a very realistic sounding sonic world. Dialogue is clearly presented, though anchored in the front channels, as is Takao's narration. There are a few bursts of energyŚan early cut to a barreling high speed train and the likeŚbut overall, dynamic range is somewhat limited here, which really doesn't detract from this very nuanced set of mixes.
