Your Name. ★★★★½

Film #21 of Scavenger Hunt 63
Task 19: Watch a body swap movie

Your Name is as beautiful and wonderful as the first time I watched it two years ago. I'm still in awe of the detail and crispness of the animation. The scene of Tokyo in the snow is incredible visually. I love the balance of humor and romance and drama in the film, and how they handle the body swapping in the people around the two characters. Yes, it does tread the typical anime subject of teen romance, rather than digging into anything weightier in its intriguing premise, but I don't really mind as its so gorgeously crafted. If you like anime at all, and you haven't seen this, move it further up your watchlist.
