Check out a new trailer just released about the new anime called Your Name or Kimi no Na Wa in Japanese. There is not a lot of English info on this film yet but based on this trailer the animation looks gorgeous! Shinkai is a very talented anime director and we can’t wait to see this.
Trailer 2 (latest)
This is a really awesome new film by the very talented Makoto Shinkai. You know, the guy who created the absolutely amazing short film “Voices of a Distant Star” on his computer all by himself! Shinkai’s films are known for their really gorgeous animation. Shinkai’s films are probably the most beautiful animes out there. Films like: The Garden of Words, Children Who Chase Lost Voices and 5 Centimeters Per Second. A lot of his films could use a little work on the story but they’re so beautiful you won’t mind. Anyway, supposedly he was quoted as saying that this was going to top all of his previous work and he spent all of 2015 working on it. Well I guess it’s coming out well because this animation looks incredibly awesome! Shinkai loves romance and you can tell he’s a true romantic with most if not all of his films featuring some kind of romance between a boy and a girl and sometimes a cat! I don’t want to spoil the film but supposedly it’s about to two high school students separated by culture, one in the city and one in the countryside and there’s something about a meteor comet coming back to Tokyo or something. I will keep you updated on this – can’t wait to see it. Japanese version is scheduled to open August 26th 2016.
The “story of miracles and love” revolves around two high school students, Mitsuha and Taki.
Boy: On that day… That day when stars fell from the sky… It was almost like…
Girl: It was almost like a dream.
Both: It was beautiful.

Taki: After school? Sorry, I have my part-time job after this.
Text: A girl who dreams of Tokyo – Mitsuha
Mitsuha: I am so sick of the boonies. I am so sick of this kind of life. Please make me a hot boy from Tokyo in my next life!
Taki: Where am I?
Mitsuha: Come to think of it, it kind of feels like I was having a weird dream this whole time. A dream of someone else’s life…?
Text on Arm: Don’t get a big head!
Text: The meeting of two people who will never meet
Mitsuha: This is… Is this…!?
Taki: Are we switching places

Mitsuha: There is one certain thing: We’ll know as soon as we see each other.

Text on hand: I found…
Taki: I had been thinking to tell you that wherever you are in the world, I’m going to go and see you no matter what!
Mitsuha: Who… are you?
Taki: Just who… are you?
Both: What’s your name?
