Your Name (Kimi no Na wa)

I usually don't review movies in this world, but, this was a special request, so here goes! If you'd like to see more anime movie reviews, feel free to comment!


Plot: Tired of her small-town life as a shrine maiden, Mitsuha wishes she could be a boy in the big city. That's when she starts to have strange dreams about a city boy named Takki -- only, she soon finds that these are not just dreams, but that she is switching places with him! (Some strangeness comes in later, but still, points for a unique idea. A-)

Characters: A-

Artwork & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: sexually suggestive material, profanity

Other: Saw this when the dub premiered in theatres. For the most part, the body-switching is fun and unique. The film goes a totally different direction at about half-point, where it gets a bit more strange. Overall, though, enjoyed this a lot.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 3.5/5
