Inside ‘Your Name’: Makoto Shinkai’s Stunning Anime becomes Highest Grossing Japanese Film of All Times


Director Makoto Shinkai’s body-swap time-travel disaster movie, Your Name (Kimi no Na wa), is stunningly gorgeous, with reviewers calling the 2D anime feature “dazzling” and “endearingly loopy.”

A story of two young souls journeying to find each other through time and fate, Your Name marks the first commercial success for the largely self-taught Japanese filmmaker, who began his career a graphic artist and illustrator. More: AWN, Indiewire, NYtimes, Japantimes
