    Something about the way Shinkai writes about love from afar keeps me coming back to his films, getting a lump in my throat each time, also the case with his other film 5 Centimetres Per Second. Top this with tremendously beautiful artwork and scenes and you have an easy favourite. This anime isn’t what people usually expect from anime, a Dragon Ball-esque sci-fi with fight scenes and a child like appeal, I do like those, for example DN Angel, but this is more of a film that anyone can enjoy, regardless if you’re a fan of anime or not.

    Non-Anime fans: Welcome to Mikoto Shinkai's masterpiece, 'Kimi no na wa'. A fun, brilliantly constructed tale of two young people seemingly swapping bodies every few days or so. What makes this stand out? The cinematography, the soundtrack, the skill of the vocal acting (Japanese cast especially); the humour, the heart break, the sheer scale and originality of it. A fast pace, wonderfully crafted film, this is a joy. Anime Fans: Rule one in the 'don't listen to them' reviewers- do they mention Miyazaki? Shinkai isn't attempting to be Miyazaki- he makes films about 10 year olds going on adventures. This is a much more subtle and powerful film because of it. Things to watch out for- the STUNNING animation of light and shadow; the way he can explain all you need to know about a character with a single shot of their room; the sophisticated and brilliant backstory (the sheer number of anime fans who go 'plot hole' when the most basic knowledge of Shinto beliefs would cover it staggers me- like are they even aware anime is Japanese?). There is a reason why this is the most successful anime of all time- and it wasn't because of hype. The hype started after the Japanese audiences saw this and went 'wow'. Best anime film ever made.

    One of the best Anime movies I have watched. Its eye candy right throughout. Clever twist on the whole body swap plot. Highly recommended.

    Sold as the successor to Ghibli now that Miyazaki has (sort of) retired, this swaps inspiration from nature and classic novels, with smartphones and compute game visual novel sensibilities. Overly sentimental, like a viral Christmas advertisement video. Frothy, like Starbucks.

    From the second half onwards especially it grabs your attention. The scenery is stunning and the art would be beautiful even if it hadn't had as good of a plot as it did. So, so good.

    An incredibly moving story with stunning visuals and a very memorable sound track. When I saw this at the cinema it took Just under a year for it to get to DVD which felt like an age. I highly recommend this film, it’s one of the best I’ve seen in years.
