Kimi No Na Wa (Your Name) is a 2016 Japanese Science Fiction Anime based on the lives of two youths. It is based on the novel Your Name written by Japanese author and director Makoto Shinkai.
This movie takes place during a time when a comet passes Japan for the first time in a thousand years.
Mitsuha is a young girl who lives in the country-side and is tired of her lifestyle. She dreams of going to Tokyo and living there.
Taki is a high school student living in Tokyo, who has a part-time job as a waiter in an Italian Restaurant.
One morning, Taki wakes up to find that he has a girl’s body.
And Mitsuha wakes up to find herself in a boy’s body.
Both think that they are just dreaming, but when this body shifting starts to occur regularly and the people around them in their own lives start to notice that something is amiss, they realise that they are switching bodies.
REVIEW: Awesome Movie. You don’t expect what’s coming next. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a fantasy-bone in their body.
