Mitsuha Miyamizu, a high school girl, yearns to live the life of a boy in the bustling city of Tokyo—a dream that stands in stark contrast to her present life in the countryside. Meanwhile in the city, Taki Tachibana lives a busy life as a high school student while juggling his part-time job and hopes for a future in architecture.

One day, Mitsuha awakens in a room that is not her own and suddenly finds herself living the dream life in Tokyo—but in Taki's body! Elsewhere, Taki finds himself living Mitsuha's life in the humble countryside. In pursuit of an answer to this strange phenomenon, they begin to search for one another.

Kimi no Na wa. revolves around Mitsuha and Taki's actions, which begin to have a dramatic impact on each other's lives, weaving them into a fabric held together by fate and circumstance.

This review is for Kimi no Na wa, or Your Name.

Your Name is a fantastical story of friendship and romance with a profound plot twist. The film has absolutely stunning art and a beautiful soundtrack. Overall, the characters are compelling and interesting, and the adventure they experience makes the story even more interesting than the romance.

For the hype this had built up by the time I watched it, it really disappointed me to see the same-old plotline we've seen in every other one of his films. The ending was done well I must admit and combined ...

Your Name is a romantic drama anime about two strangers who magically switch bodies and must navigate their unfamiliar life for a few days without being able to share what is going on.

Despite having a unique and intriguing premise, I would not recommend Your Name. to those looking ...
