It has beautiful animation and beautiful characters. It is a funny, sweet and emotional roller coaster of a crowd-pleaser that manages to win your heart.
**They’re no strangers, yet they’ve never met.**
Probably the most anticipated anime since the final film of Mr. Miyazaki. Because people know what these guys are capable of. This is one per cent sci-fi and 99 per cent fantasy. The concept is not new for us. From ‘Freaky Friday’ to ‘The Lake House’, even the recent American television film ‘The Swap’, you will remember a handful of names once you read this film’s synopsis. Yet the film was so good, because of how well the theme was utilised.
We all know the technical brilliance of ‘5 Centimeters Per Second’ and the beautiful romance from ‘The Garden of Words’. This is an excellent mix of those two. If love either of them, or both, then you will love it as well. But if you ask me, my favourite is still ‘The Garden of Words’ from this director. I liked this film, enjoyed thoroughly, so liking it less than that means not a bad flick. Surely a film to recommend for anime fans, as well as for animation’s (western audience).
The story of two teenagers, one from the rural Japan mountain region and the other one from Tokyo. The plot revolves around a comet that is to pass by very close to the earth. But before that event, the girl is bored with her life, so she dreams of living in a big city and that too as a boy. One day her wish comes true when she wakes up as she swapped bodies, including most of the memories with a boy from Tokyo.
For her, it is to live as she wanted and make use of the opportunity. But for him, it is like a curse, hence becomes rebellious. This thing keeps happening frequently for days and weeks. After some times, realising the phenomena is between two, they make a deal and strict order of Dos and Don’ts while away. All this until the day of comet and everything changes forever. Searching for the truth and the result of it leads to the end of the tale.

Unlike Miyazaki, Makot Shinkai’s storytelling is quite for the matured audience. It targets adults more than the children. Particularly for not shying away to include naturally occurring events in such situation as the story develops, despite/even though the film revolves around the teens/kids. As for this flick, the concern is not big, but it depends on the nation and its culture you belong to. It is very much acceptable and as the story progress, the best things keep replacing another till the finale. So hooked to it is assured.
The film length was good and so the pace of the narration. Well written screenplay, which was based on the book of the same name. But the director admits the inspiration from the previous flicks with similar themes. They have used the real places of the anime version with fictional names, but most of the Tokyo remains same and they all were awesome.
In many scenes, the camera panning was a treat. Especially the framerate was high, so no jerks, hence very pleasurable visual experience. Like I mentioned earlier, this is a unique film, despite not a original idea. The film proved the Japan is not overshadowed by Hollywood, particularly after the decline of animes in the recent years. It’s up to the quality of the product, if so, then those glory days can be brought back for animes. Anyway, now this film holds the record for highest grossed anime.
Apart from technical dominance, the story is also enchanting. If you like romance theme, this will serve you well. A good film for date night. But usually people would skip animation for such occasion and one should not mix up that with anime. Because why I always put apart the anime and animation is, the animes are good at beautiful romance, while its counterpart from the west focus more on comedy and adventure. But the common thing from them is the well explored fantasy theme.
Usually the ends are guessable for a film like this and the same case for this in here. Only as a result of the story, you would know what’s coming, but not the frame by frame scenes of it. Yeah, I liked this conclusion, the final lines said might bring you tears in your eyes, romantically, if you are an emotional person. One of the best endings, even though it was clichéd. And the credits start to roll up, while you begin to recall everything you just saw in the last 100 minutes. A must see film, so highly recommended by my side. Now I’ve to wait for another couple of years for such film.
One of the greatest human stories ever…
From an anime nonetheless.
Much has been said about this great animation and most of it is true. It is beautiful, tender, modern (watch the film and you will understand) and makes human love interesting again.
With that said, it is too bad that Hollywood has picked this up. Not that I will be watching that remake, but I cringe already at the thought of Hollywood hack and remake specialist giving this an American swirl. All the cliches of bad remaking and safe corporate changes will be applied. Aaaarrrggghh
Kimi no Nawa is up there with the quality of work Studio Ghibli makes. It’s a journey in a world breathing with atmosphere, mystery, and visual wonder. A journey about growth and resilience in the face of overwhelming odds. A journey about human emotion that transcends space and time, as we watch our two protagonists struggle relentlessly against fate. A journey that might just be one of the most captivating anime movie experiences I’ve had in years.
Director Makoto Shinkai’s artistry is something people tend to love or hate, but this film is solid proof to all of his disdainful critics that his movies were never “just eye candy”. They explore the nature of life and relationships in quiet ways rarely seen or discussed, which is why most of them are not fast-paced or action packed…and why they are so beautiful. But even if you’re not a fan of this kind of style with its major use of metaphorical imagery and mixture of subtle and explosive emotions, definitely give Kimi no Nawa a chance. This is by far his most ambitious, original movie in many ways. For instance, there’s an actual mystical element to the story apart from his previous films that are set purely on realism. The pacing is a lot faster and intense. There’s a surprising amount of humor in the script, making the chemistry between the characters more light-hearted and comically entertaining than expected. All of this is done through a narrative vision so emotional, so brilliantly realized, that I’m pretty sure everyone at the Anime Expo world premiere screening was tearing up, including me.
Without spoiling, what mainly drives this film’s story is the dynamics of our main characters’ relationship. The way these two interact is just so unique and lovable. The premise itself allows them to bond on a more personal level, far more intriguing than the usual teenage love story where boy meets girl, boy likes girl, boy gets girl. Eventually, you become so invested in their strange relationship, that when all the action goes down, it’s no longer just suspenseful – it’s almost heartbreaking.
Editing and sound design play a HUGE role in this immersion. There’s rarely a single dull moment because of how gripping and emotionally driven the timing of every cut is. The sound design combined with a beautiful music score is outstanding – subtle and moving when creating atmosphere, powerful at times of dramatic conflict. In fact, the same can be said for pretty much all of the visual aesthetics – which if I haven’t already mentioned, are amazing. This is a prime example of astonishingly jaw-dropping animation combined with powerful storytelling.
Kimi no Nawa is not just any anime movie. It has the potential to be viewed and studied as art cinema. It’s so beautifully crafted and meticulously detailed, I feel like I didn’t even cover 80% of its greatness in this review. To do that, I would have to make a spoiler analysis review, and to do that, I would probably have to see the movie again, maybe a couple more times before I can fully appreciate this nearly flawless masterpiece.
I know I sound like I’m fanboying, but as a film student and anime fan for many years, I’m being fully honest here – if Director Makoto Shinkai keeps this kind of quality up, he is going to be an even bigger name in the anime industry for years to come. Remember Your Name long enough until it’s available in your country, if you’re not seeing it in Japan theaters. Because trust me, you’re not going to forget it. 10/10
