5. Mirai (2018)
A young boy named Kun feels forgotten by his family when his little sister Mirai arrives. Running away from home, Kun stumbles upon a magical garden that serves as a time-traveling gateway where he encounters his mother as a little girl and has a series of adventures with his baby sister, who is all grown up, opening a new perspective on his world.

When a lonely teenager skips his morning lessons to sit in a lovely garden, he meets a mysterious older woman who shares his feelings of alienation.
I think The Garden of Words is groundbreaking as far as Shinkai’s work goes because it addresses distance in a socially controversial/unacceptable relationship between a student and a teacher.
