Your Name

de Makoto Shinkai


One day, Taki and Mitsuha discover that while sleeping, their bodies are interchanged. Then they start to communicate through notes. As they manage to clumsily overcome one challenge after another, a bond is created between the two of them that, little by little, will become something more than romantic. Another marvel from one of the essential names in Japanese animated film.


Makoto Shinkai
