Your Name. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½


WOW! (This is what I kept saying throughout).

Absolutely stunningly beautiful 😍 in regards to both the animation and the story. Some of the best animation I've ever seen. Brilliant music too.

It is really refreshing to watch something so original. I thought it was going to be just another body swap film (nothing wrong with those though) but it was so much more. The narrative is so layered and complex. Make sure you are paying attention and you will get swept right up into the emotional journey of the two protagonists.

It only doesn't get full marks because it took me a little while to become invested in the story but once it had hooked me it truly had me.
Also a bit too much boob groppage going on that made that joke wear thin for me.

Still a truly magical film though ❀
