Z会 「クロスロード」 120秒Ver.


Anime director Makoto Shinkai (The Garden of Words, Children Who Chase Lost Voices) created the “Cross Road” television commercial for the major correspondence education company Z-Kai.

The story of “Cross Road” centers on high school students Miho (Ayane Sakura) and Shōta (Kensho Ono) as they prepare for tests. Miho comes from an island without even one cram school, while Shōta lives in Tokyo and works a part-time job. Both are striving to pass tests so they can enter college. The pair enroll in Z-Kai’s correspondence education courses, and their lives cross before they realize.
