IN OUR SIGHTS: YOUR NAME


WHAT IS IT: A new Japanese animation touted as this years Spirited Away. The less you know about it the better, but the story involves a small-town high-school girl called Mitsuha (Mone Kamishiraishi), and a Tokyo boy of the same age named Taki (Ry√Ľnosuke Kamiki), who start possessing each other’s bodies. From there, a strange relationship develops between them.

WHY? It's getting rave reviews all around the world. Empire magazine said, "If you only see one Japanese animated feature this year, see this one, and see it more than once." While Total Film commented, "A brain-scrambler to make hearts swell, Shinkai’s giddy romance brims with emotion and invention."


WHEN: Directed by Makoto Shinkai, Your Name opens this Friday in the U.K. Check out the weird and wonderful trailer below.
