Review of Kimi no Na wa.
by Christopher Westberg
Posted on May 1st, 2018
Neutral -
Overall Rating
your name directed by makoto shinkai (2016) mitsuha is the daughter of the mayor of a small mountain town. she's a straightforward high school girl who lives with her sister and her grandmother and has no qualms about letting it be known that she's uninterested in shinto rituals or helping her father's electoral campaign. instead she dreams of leaving the boring town and trying her luck in tokyo. taki is a high school boy in tokyo who works part-time in an italian restaurant and aspires to become an architect or an artist. every night he has a strange dream where he becomes...a high school girl in a small mountain town. your name has amazing characters, scenery, city life and town life, story. everything is just wow. so fine! the suspension, the empathy, the scenes. the thoughts. it's playful and pleasant, but serious and funny at the same time. it makes you want to feel it and live it, while you just keep cheering for everything. every minute is a time well-spent. that i was afraid when it's going to end. i literally just realized that this would be the end of an anime. than this would be the end of an hour long movie. i was so afraid when it's going to end. it borough such a beautiful and marvelous utopia before my eyes, with all it's mistakes, conflicts. that i actually wanted to live there. however it is very close to reality. every time something out of order happens, you remember. this is a certain reality. people can die, be ashamed, punished. everything can end in a tragedy. but when something wrong happens, nobody really cares.. and i was like: "why? why aren't you moving? are you not afraid for your lives?" than i remembered.. this is a certain utopia. even for the people who live in it. nothing bad happen to them, nothing really could. they are peaceful, good people, in a modern world. nothing bad happened in the last 3 generations, why would anything happen now? this movie gave me a new set of feelings, viewpoints, happiness, thoughts and desires, i might have lacked or just not realized before. i'm really glad i watched it. it was a piece from my dreams. but my highest praise is that is movie has hand-drawn cell tradional animations and that is very rare nowadays! i have barely any flaws with it. rating: 10/10 so far my favorite of 2016! and the best animated movie of 2016, i loved kubo but this was slightly better! highly recomend it even to people wo dont like animation/anime! and for anyone who wonder i watch the original not the dub versions of animes.
