Your Name.

Your Name. ★★★★

This is no doubt the biggest triumph of Makoto Shinkai and probably his best film (although 5 Centimeters Per Second is a good contender). He finally manages to mix his over-the-top romanticism with his excellent Sci-Fi and fantasy tendencies in a very spectacular piece of animation that mostly touches the right chords and doesn’t really enter in cringe or lame territory, even when it borders it quite often. It’s clearly an icon of a kind of crowd-pleasing anime.
