Set one month after a comet has fallen for the first time in a thousand years in Japan. Mitsuha, a high school girl living in the countryside, wants to live in the city because she is tired of life in the country. Then, there's Taki. He's a high school student living in Tokyo with his friends while working as a part-timer at an Italian restaurant. He also has a strong interest in fine arts involving architecture. One day, Mitsuha dreams of herself as a young man. On the other hand, Taki also has a dream where he is a female student attending high school in the countryside. What's the secret behind their dreams?
Directed by Makoto Shinkai, Your Name quickly became the highest-grossing film of 2016 in its native Japan, and has brought in over $172 million worldwide since its debut. Not only has the film been a financial success, but it's also finally proved that an outsider has what it takes to take on anime powerhouse Hayao Miyazaki, managing to outgross the last two films from Miyazaki (Ponyo and The Wind Rises).
With the nickname "The New Miyazaki," Makoto Shinkai has been impressing critics since his debut short film She and Her Cat in 1997. Since then he has directed critically acclaimed feature length films 5 Centimeters per Second, The Place Promised in Our Early Days and The Garden of Words.
The english version of Your Name is being distributed across the UK by Anime Limited in either english dubbed or subtitled version, and will be shown in America from December 2 -8 at Los Angeles’ Laemmle Music Hall. There will also be an extended theatrical release in the US in early 2017. The english versions stars Michael Sinterniklaas as Taki Tachibana (Pokémon, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Stephanie Sheh as Mitsuha Miyamizu (Sailor Moon, Peter Rabbit). Kyle Hebert, Cassandra Morris, Ben Pronsky, Catie Harvey and Scott Williams will also voice various characters.
