I just watched Ame Agaru (aka After the Rain) and I don't really understand the end of the film. The Lord of the fief was supposed to catch Misawa, to accept him as Master-of-Arms. But he didn't! The film ended just before that. How should I understand that? Do you have any explanations?

@all For now I tagged this after-the-rain, see this relevant meta question for a possibility to discuss this matter. – Napoleon Wilson Jun 28 '13 at 8:55
@ChristianRau, thanks! I have 2 questions: 1) will you create tag for each film? Isn't this overwhelming? 2) the linked question argues for original title of the film, which is "Ame Agaru" in this case. – Tomas Jun 28 '13 at 9:01
Yes, the general policy is a tag for each movie. Of course this will produce many tags, but it helps to easily identify the topic of a question and to search for certain movie questions (and well, tags don't really cost anybody anything, no?). And the linked question doesn't have much of an opnion on the matter (it only argues about English original titles vs. English alternative titles). The existing answer addresses the tagging problem with non-English original titles but only says that it's not completely clear what to do, while a comment argues for the English title... – Napoleon Wilson Jun 28 '13 at 9:05
@ChristianRau thanks, and yes now it seems reasonable to create tag for each film. Maybe another tag "ame-agaru" should be created and declared as a synonyme? – Tomas Jun 28 '13 at 9:37
@Tomas & ChristianRau related meta discussion… – Ankit Sharma Jun 28 '13 at 10:59
