I don't have a lot of experience with Anime in general, or the genre of romance, but I did like this movie. I know some people here found it to be underwhelming or inferior in comparision to similiar genre films, so what would those be? And why?

Regarding 'Your Name', it became somewhat unique later on before ending very stereotypical. It felt like the season finale of 'Friends'. But still, the plot was interesting. The characters forgettable. But it made me emotional anyways. I'm easily moved by that shit, so it worked nonetheless.

It's enjoyable. The story isn't fantastic but the soundtrack and visuals are amazing.
faggots on /a/ don't like it because it's successful

what other romantic Anime movies are better or as good as this one?

They were either all shit or mediocre.
Shinkai was the only one that did it remotely well with his previous movie. Just look at all the other high budget movie flop like patema inverted or kiddy romance in ghibli movies and you would realize how bad the medium is with romance.

Live action is garbage with romance, though. For every actually good one, there's five hundred generic romcoms, which I actually find worse than generic anime romcoms.
>>
>>152225072
Yeah, Shinkai himself stated that he didn't satisfied with it, but there were time and budget constraints. That means it could be better in Shinkai's standard. But his lighting and coloring signature are still in it.
>>152225247
Almost no QUALITY frames at all. This movie has pretty high standard sakuga if you don't mind not having flashy action keyframes at all.

Not yet, with inflation rate, Spirited away's grossing would be around $360-400m.

I remember at least two scenes where the animation dropped to 10 fps which was surprising for this movie.

I can only guess that Japan is much more forgiving than the west when it comes to skimping on animation frames.
>>
>>152227224
Maybe because it's 2D animation?

How is this even a guess? Of course they are, 8/12fps is the standard for most anime. I believe the only full-1s anime ever is still Akira.

Kimi no Na Wa is a fucking monster. If it has the same screening period as Spirited Away, it will beat all the record eventually. Good to see that het love can still win the public when TV is conquered by homos.

The movie is nice. What pisses me off is how miyazaki shitters (normies) are hyping it even if it's no better than any other Matoko Shinkai's movie or even regular anime. I fucking hate these bandwagoning hipster faggots who felt "delighted and enchanted" after watching the movie in theatre but won't even consider watching standard anime afterward.

I really don't think Shinkai will be able to create a better movie than this, it's probably going to stand as his magnum opus. It was more a stroke of luck than anything else that it turned out so well.

I'd enjoy being wrong though, but I really don't think he's a new Miyazaki or Walt Disney.
>>
>>152214664

Yes number. I am eager to see kimi no wa keked evangelion, miyakazi, and others anime sales number.

>>152234665

After fifteen years of loyally torrenting and downloading from IRC, this is going to be the first anime and manga related merchandize I'm going to buy.

Then again buying this movie is more equivalent of buying a Disney or Pixar movie than buying anime to be quite honest.
>>
>>152234566
I agreed with you in term of story telling, but you can imagine it having Kotoha no Niwa quality. What Shinkai could improve in his next work is schedule management.
>>
>>152235053

Then again Lion King also had schedule management problems.
>>
>>152235079
Doesn't mean that Your Name has to be Shinkai's magnum opus. But I also think this is the highest grossing he could get.
>>
>>152234873
Don't think any Disney or Pixar film is this emotional to begin with, they're much more shallow (although Your Name certainly isn't deep either)
>>
it's a film for normie.
I hate normie.
I used to like Shinkai films because of his autistic virgin mindset, but now he fell into normieside.
Die Shinkai.

>>152214664
As someone who spends little to no time in /a/ because.... well it's /a/, I liked it. It was fun to indulge in that childhood fantasy of having a soulmate or someone special for you, having a connection that goes beyond the normal world. You know, magical, and having magical stuff happen to you.

I didn't see the twist coming that she was dead for three years because of the comic. I did notice that it was weird he didn't know about the comic and no one was talking about it in his world, but it was pretty well written to make me not question it. It is usually pretty obvious to see Chekhov's Gun and realize what they are trying to hide but they hid it pretty well.

Beyond that the art was outstanding and the music was amazing.

The whole amnesia thing with them forgetting their names kinda frustrated me but it made sense from a dream standpoint. I also thought the ending was perfect with leaving their relationship up to our imagination. I'm glad they realized that was the end of the story and to end it there instead of indulging the viewers.

The only critique I have is their meeting on the edge of the crater where she has a little bit of a moment of tsundere trope and he stands there not doing anything, as if the amnesia was already setting in. I thought they really squandered that meeting between themselves and I thought the story wasted what could have been a heartfelt moment during all the chaos.

So 8/10
>>
>>152234564
Nice. I will rewatch it again maybe we could meet at Nguyen Du.
>>
>>152234873
I'm gonna buy shit too. Probably just the blue ray but still something. I finally have a job so I'd like to support the industry when it doesn't something right for a change.

It'd be really sick if they sold the drawings Taki created, I'd love a copy of the town and the lake.

>>152236776
Yep, I love disney but usually its forced in like the beginning of Up. Then again its hard to reach this level of emotion. I mean to have a connection with someone and then realize they are gone. Fuuuuuuck that. I teared up so badly.
>>
>>152236962
What I don't get why they didn't try to call each other or meet each other before. Seems like a human thing to do, curiosity et al
>>
>>152238135
Maybe more impactful revelation? (from emotion standpoint).
In the novel, which finished before the anime. Taki mentioned that they tried to contact each other before.
>>
>>152238135
I'm fine with that, it would kind of ruin the magic. I mean swapping bodies and lives and leaving notes for each other written on your bodies and in your journals? It makes sense that they wouldn't want to spoil the magic. Ironically right when Taki did call everything stopped. Might have been coincidence but you never know
>>
>>152225222
I watched this on the plane too, when the titty scenes came up the stranger next to me was just looking at the screen with intrigue and possibly disgust.
>>
>>152238560
It could have been much worse. I thought they handled it pretty well.

Also the scene where he finally swaps with her the last time and is crying while holding her breasts because he didn't lose her completely yet was hilariously heart warming
>>
>>152238493
>right when Taki did call, everything stopped
It would have made sense for it to stop after the cometh. But the girl called him before already as well when she tried to find him in Tokyo. So it is obvious the frequency never worked out.
>>
>>152238560
did you grope your own breasts
>>
>>152238493
>wouldnt spoilt the magic
if you mean the creator, yeah, but any human would fucking call them and whatnot because it is their own body someone is using.
>>
>he's 22 and hasn't got a job
>she's 25

it's kinda sad that she's probably a single christmas cake, and the only way she can go on living is by marrying a jobless NEET who's only interested in her breasts

>>152250678
Not him but let me answer.
Just pay more attention anon.
Sure, they are at the same age. But Mitsuha was 17 in 2013, while Taki was 17 in 2016.
>>
>>152250790
Wow, my biggest mistake is that I thought when Taki was trying to find info about Itomori by taking the train with his 2 friends to the urban, then found the name list of the deceased in library, he was over 17 since he had the look of an undergraduate student in some Architect University (as he draws a lot of background scene from his vague memory, and the school looks different from the one Mitsuha went to when she switched with him at the beginning)
