|Say Koniciwa to Taki and Mitsuha!|
Your Name Review – My first ever Japanese anime movie experience.
|Brought together by fate or a bizarre happening?|
Mitsuha and Taki are two high school students living without knowing the existence of each other in different part of the country. Mitsuha is bored on her country life and wishes to live in Tokyo while Taki is a tired of his life in the city who is interested in countryside landscaping. One day, both of them wake up in the body of the other confused at first but slowly they begin to accept the unusual body switch. They help each other live their switched lives albeit some funny situations while trying to figure the reason for their condition. Pretty soon, Taki figures out that the comet appearance has something to do with the whole situation but he needs to act fast before fate change their lives for once and all.
From the music, animation, work of art, storyline, everything was a labour of love into making this into a classic film to be enjoyed for years to come. Despite being an animation, one could ‘feel’ the emotions felt by the lead characters, the joy of exploring the city, the shyness of going on a first date, the responsibility required to save others, the longing to meet your loved ones, the frustration of not being able to control fate. It is a roller coaster ala anime style served in a best way possible. I got no complain whatsoever about this movie except wish I knew how to speak Japanese to appreciate this film even more.
|Will you remember my name?|
I’m not really a fan of anime but rave reviews on this movie stole my interest to check it out. I ended up being amazed by effort put into producing this film. I’ve not been to Japan but after watching this movie, I wish I could board the next plane to the Land of The Rising Sun. Who knows, perhaps I might get a taste of an out of body experience ey?
