Please, no more.

Not as good as 5cm or the Garden but probably better than the rest. No one is saying it's the best as far as I can see, it's just the most popular. I think Shinkai deserves recognition after how much work he's put in over the years.

It's not groundbreaking but better than decent. It's honestly a great movie. They fuck up one or two things but not enough to fuck up the film

>>152353121
Personally the art and music were amazing and they just had really impactful, meaningful scenes. You walk away from the movie feeling really fucking good.

The biggest reason this movie is fucking amazing is that it is suggesting the beginning of an anime renaissance. Where the industry will finally have to stop pandering to the mentally ill autistic retards that purchase all the merchandise and fund them.

>>152355585
Hey if they can finally make money without embracing autism then the industry will change.

Just imagine all the animes that have been made and how much greater they were if they weren't dripping tropes.

Soul Eater is the best example. First episode is going great and then suddenly the whole fucking episode is derailed into this bullshit subplot about the pair not being able to defeat a witch, repeatedly, because Evans keeps having a stroke due to the size of her breasts. Because they know they have to push the fetish/r34 bullshit to make it captivating to the autistic loner perverts who will write more fan art and spread it online and buy their merchandise.

If anime can just lose the bullshit tropes (most noticable sexuallizing underage girls) it will be a fucking renaissance.
>>
>>152354476

I got so fucking pissed at the twist cause I thought they were going to pull a "Bridge to Terabithia" bullshit tragic ending. so fucking glad they didn't. actually worked out really well cause the audience is actively hoping for a happy ending which they get

The problem is that this board still thinks the best anime should be the most popular and they freak out when it doesn't happen. As if the movie doesn't deserve its popularity because it isn't the best. Then they descend into finding every flaw possible and become contrarians acting as if it's even a bad or shit movie because they are trying to convince everyone else that it doesn't deserve to be as popular as it is.

It's a decent movie and it's annoying how fucking pessimistic the autists on this board have to be because they can't handle something being popular and mainstream.
>>
>>152355787
If mediocre commercial films are all that makes money I'd hardly consider it a renaissance. There's nothing that says this isn't a one-off instance either.
>>
>>152356277

>>
>>152356316
Oh it's totally possible that this is just a one shot and the industry doesn't change. It's just that the movie increases the chance that it will.

And it might just be me, but I'd consider the industry to have a renaissance when I can tell people I watch anime and they don't immediately, and justifiably, think I have a mental or social disorder.

Hollywood is making a ton of money and 95% of the movies they make are absolute garbage. It's all sequels, prequels, remakes, reboots and adaptations of books, comics and short stories. Now some would argue that anime is no longer a niche medium, but I'd prefer it to stay the way it is.

If Miyazaki's success didn't change anime in the way you're thinking, then you can be certain Shinkai won't. Your Name is a heck of a lot more trashy than most other successful anime films too, so I don't even know where this is coming from. Teen body-swapping romcom is right in line with people's perception of anime.

basically this.

Not sure why so many people on /a/ shill for the Oscars. Sure, it would be nice to get a nomination, but voters are horribly biased towards Holywood movies, so you'll probably see the same Disney trash being pushed again this year.

>>152356416
The pic is from a thread 2 days ago, where an anon had relatives who vote on the movie, therefore having access to a 480i streamer. They are normal DVD's, but have a large hardcoded identification numbers (like Nazo's chinksub as well) and it's very likely that anon doesn't want to be identified.

Though it would be nice since these would be in actual decent 480p rather than the interlaced, low rez shit we have right now.

First of all, get the encode in pic related. It's only slightly better, but the large improvement is that it only has english subs.

Make sure you put the volume at 60% or something lower than normal, since there is slight white noise in the background that totally ruins the experience.

And finally, try to watch it on a large device like a TV, as your brain will be less likely to go full retard because of the quality.

Blurays will come out in 3-4 months, but could be pushed back even further, you never know, and only these lead to proper encodes.

Anyone else think the Keit-ai is shitty fucking pasta? You know what? I'm gonna go through this copy pasta line for fucking line to point out how much bullshit it is. I'm totally fine with copy pasta but when you have to change almost every part of it to make sense, it's bullshit.

>A boy falls in love with a girl.
Both of them equally fall in love with each other and it's not until 3/4th of the way in that the word "love" is even said. Both of them fight for each other almost an equal amount, with Taki having the upper hand initially after the "twist" because of the nature of the disaster. It naturally switches to her afterwards and she fights to remember him and change fate.

>Unable to confess, he is gifted with by a deus ex machina with the girl’s phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.
Again the story is never this one sided until after the twist, in which first we see Taki's perspective and then Mitsuha. This fits with the theme of losing the other, we are unable to see both perspectives just as they aren't anymore. Also there is no "unable to confess". The feelings are mutual and at no point are either or them held back from expressing their feeling for the other due to insecurities. They just live the experience until they lose each other, and then the conflict becomes about changing fate, not expressing their love for each other (what a shitty, petty conflict that would be). Also if anything the phone DOESN'T FUCKING WORK. They are unable to reach out to each other, in fact they never speak to each other until the twilight scene. And that scene was about them finally meeting, but also about re-swapping so Mitsuha can take her turn in preventing the disaster (convincing her Dad, something Taki was unable to do). There is way more than "just a crush" going on aka saving the lives of hundreds of people.

>But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day’s confessions to the girl, she only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the girl he called is not the same girl he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn’t exist in this universe at all. She is the girl’s alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC’s own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of her crush.

The only thing close to this event is when Mitsuha goes to see Taki (so again not the guy acting) and Taki isn't in love with anyone. He hasn't met her because of the timeline.

>Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves.

Again why this copy pasta is shit. Nowhere after this meeting do the two meet up to "discuss their inner secrets". They never communicate with each other except through notes, they never actually talk until the twilight scene. And it's not to "equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves." There is nothing about conquering their hearts. There is the basic small plot of trying to live the other's lives and not fuck each other's up (eventually trying to improve the other's live). The main conflict in the movie is the fucking disaster. They never admit secrets to each other. The biggest secrets (Mitsuha's family and the backstory of their tradition with their shrine God) is taught by the grandmother.
>>
>>152352302
Does that take into account inflation and the growth of population and the film industry? The cultural impact it has is likely still insignificant in comparison but I don't know enough about this topic to say for sure.

In any case calm down and wait for the dust to settle before trying to analyze this.
>>
>>152363836
>While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

Oh look something else that doesn't have anything to do with the story. There are no body doubles, there is no conflict of trying to get the other to fall in love with them. The conflict is about saving Mitsuha's life and the lives of her friends and family. And before that it was about Taki searching for her and the power that brought them together (which eventually leads to the final swap in which Taki realizes they can change fate) and before then it was the very minor conflict of living with the swap and enjoying the power.

This has to be the laziest attempt to force a copy pasta because you lazy bastards are too autistic to actually come up with a new one in the story.

How about criticizing how Taki's father never gets involved with the story and the we hear next to nothing (is it literally nothing?) about his mother. Or how about that bullshit scene during the Twilight when they waste their precious minute together acting like faggots? How she went on a rant about him touching her breasts when she felt up his junk?

Criticize the movie for shit it did, don't try to force some lazy, shitty copy pasta from 2011 on this movie just because you are anally anguished that it's more popular than you think it deserves to be.

>>152363568
the worst part about the meme besides most of it being wrong is that phone being a dues ex machina. the phones, which they both have, never works. the deus ex machina isn't a phone, it's the ceremonial sake she prepared from her own body that he drank in the shrine of their god before he knocked himself out cold and saw the story hidden about the comet before. comparing that to a phone is bullshit

pretty sure they don't say how they get their numbers so I thought they just remembered the other's phone number because, you know, they looked at their fucking phone and had to use their phones over the course of months to live their lives and call the other's family/friends/jobs?

If anything it was a reverse deus ex machina (whatever the fuck that's called) when the message just started deleting themselves off the phone.

Again you retards act like you haven't even seen the fucking movie but are just spouting off bullshit you've heard from people bitching about the movie or with the fucking trash meme

you'd be surprised how many people in America hate music that's not in english. They think the song is stupid if they can't hear the words. Hence why Shakira (random artist to make an example) has one fucking popular song "Hips don't lie" because it's one of the few she sang in english.

I don't think you'll have the luxury of picking and choosing a time like that, just try to find an obscure theater.

I've been to a handful of anime movies over the last year and it's been pretty decent overall,so you'll probably be fine.

>>152364207
Just for the sake of argument let's assume you are right. There was no possible way they would know each other's phone numbers after using their phones in their daily lives after dozens of swaps over the course of multiple months. It would still not be a dues ex machina. Let's look at the definition:

>a person or thing (as in fiction or drama) that appears or is introduced suddenly and unexpectedly and provides a contrived solution to an apparently insoluble difficulty

In what way does the phone number help AT ALL? Does it help them meet up? Does it start the swap? Does it get the town to evacuate? Does it stop the meteor? Does it help them AT ALL?

It provides literally no assistance. They both call the numbers and the numbers are dead.

It's as if you know nothing about the movie or what "dues ex machina" even means yet are taking part of the discussion anywhere and wasting everyone's times.

>>152364721
Mine theater just laughed at every little fucking thing early on, though I'm thankful no one made a sound during the first atomic breath/city destruction scene. I heard some people say people cheered during that part, and if some faggots ruined that moment for me I would have flipped the fuck out.

Why are people acting like this is an inherent achievement of the film and not considering the social and environmental circumstances that it appeared in?

More people are interested in anime nowadays.

Anime has better marketing and exposure.

More people have the disposable income to watch these kinds of things then a decade ago.

There are more of the kinds of people who are into this kind of thing then there were a decade or longer ago.

The film has adopted meme-like tendency too - in the same manner something small become popular (like a stupid video on youtube) so too has this spread like wildfire in memetic fashion around Asia.

None of this actually says anything about the objective quality of the film though.

As a girl she had responsibilities with her family's tradition. As a boy she would be free from those.

This pretty much ensures Shinkai is going to fail from this point on. While good, this is far from being his best, so this selling so well would mean whenever his next films fail to measure up to this success, he will doubt himself whether he's getting better or not. Nevermind the fact all the pressure from news media that would be hounding after him if he fails to deliver in the future, the hype generated from this movie. Calling it now, he will crash and burn within 5 years.
>>
>>152374906
His next piece is in 2019. And I bet he'll expected it to flop like you expected him.

But I'm glad that Miyazaki legend is finally beaten. For a long time, it's like everyone in the industry has been in his shadow. I hope now the other directors would try to go further and beat Shinkai eventually. This way would make anime industry grow.

>>152352969
Depends if youre someone who doesnt put any thought into movies he watches and is easily impressed by forced drama and stunning visuals then this might be one of the best films you have and will ever see. If you dont match that description then it might be somewhere between 5-8/10. I am still mad about the wasted potential. Even I would have given that film a 9.5/10 for its first 60 minutes.
>>
>>152374906
>>152375144
it depends on the US performance. If they can match or exceed the gross of Japan then holy shit, you'll see this movie up with the likes of Dreamworks and Disney. And a lot of investors are going to release the possibilities of that.

I mean fuck, 2019? He has the time, he could create something amazing.
>>
>>152373944
There's no accounting for taste, I suppose.
>>
>>152375144
But the problem is that this work really doesn't deserve this level of accolades. He knows it too, so now he will be haunted on how talented he really is if this was the movie that beatened Miyazaki. It would leave a sour taste in any talented person's mouth to get an achievement for a work that clearly didn't deserve it.

Or he will accept his popularity and use it to drive him forward to succeed? God you guys are so pessimistic

/tv/ here, just watched it.

It was honestly a good and cute film, but nothing groundbreaking. Don't understand the whole hype around it. But then again, most films nowadays are shit so finding something decent amongst them is exciting.

Shinkai's other movie about the dude and girl writing letters or something was better imho.

I honestly don't understand why ANYONE would use KissAnime when the quality is Komodo dragon shit and it forces you to turn off your AdBlock so that your computer is susceptible to being spamfucked with viruses and adds.
You'd think these dipshits would at least stick to Crunchyroll if they seriously want to support the anime industry, but in reality they're just stupid lazy faggots.
Fuck KissAnime, and fuck its shit-eating userbase.

To be fair, crunchyroll is REALLY bad, way worse than KA. I've used it before and the ads are literally always the same thing, their own promo trailers are awful, and their servers are fucked half of the time. They're both inferior, but CC is wayyy worse than KA.

You are objectively full of shit.
You don't get commercials if you're willing to subscribe to CR, and honestly I can handle the commercials over getting fucking spyware from KissAnime.
CR without the subscription is 480p resolution with commercials, which sucks shit.
But that isn't as bad compared to KissAnime's fuzzy compressed hogshit streaming client that prevents you from watching it with your AdBlock turned on. So you turn off your AdBlock to watch it, then suddenly you're bombarded with pop-up ads, viruses, and spyware.
KissAnime is absolute fucking garbage.

The language is very unbecoming of a reviewer with the guardian. And hell, it's a few years out of date. Emo? Fallout Boy? It's 2017. Dude should just properly transition to adulthood and do reviews on serious films.

>>152386187
Nigger, meme magic for most of those. They evacuated people out of the blast area, the time travel thing was because of the local Shinto gods being bros, since Mitsuha was a priestess and all, same timeline, different times, body swapping is again because of the Shinto gods and Taki I guess was chosen randomly. The text in love thing was kind off yeah, they fell in love way too fucking easy. Though I did enjoy the Rob Schneider parts and the first hour. Rest was meh, imo. Visuals there stood out, sound department was OK. But the amount of details in almost every scene is what makes it all the better. Like go watch it, and just pause in some of those apartment scenes, and just see how much shit they put in there.

Are AB and OT actually good?
>>
>>152393756
OT is decent if you are looking for JAV, it's pretty much irrelevant in terms of other h-material compared to exhentai though.

AB is really good, especially if you are looking for older stuff. Most of /a/ hates seeding and using their brain though, so you'll see shilling against it all the time.

Here's a crazy fact, In This Corner of The World outperformed Your Name and was 2nd in the box office today.

I guess I'll have to wait until they open applications again, no harm in signing up I guess.

>>152393947
AB won't open applications again.

Your best bet is to get PU on another tracker and get recruited at this point, though I guess you are pretty much fucked if you aren't on either PTH/PTP/BTN/AHD etc. at this point since no relevant trackers have registrations.

They used to, but not anymore. Last time was end of January 2016.

okay I just finished the movie.

it's okay but didn't wow me. Guess I'm too old, ugly, and neet to self insert (in other words, hard to relate to the characters).

Did NOT like the time travel bullshit. The body swap mechanism is also not well defined. Why 3 years? I get the whole threaded time-space metaphor but would have preferred if it was just distance.

Also, the typical shinkai two people walk past each other without noticing dragged on for too long. Oh, and I didn't like the music very much. I like how the songs were incorporated into the presentation but the singer's voice was grating to me.

5/10 good for normies I guess.

Probably around 2-3.

But what is far more interesting is if Taki sluted around in Mitsuha's body, and her peers being to scared to mention it to her.

A lot of people are overlooking the natural disaster influence for Japanese viewers. The idea that they could avoid all the death and change fate is very appealing to them.

Don't be too sad about the music. It might not be in japanese in the US release but the Radwimps vocalist lived in America and can sing in perfectly ok english. Their earlier works, even when they were produced in Japan, were actually sang in english even.

Watched a camrip a while back and it's nothing special. They obviously marketed it well and anime is a lot more popular outside of Japan these days, that's all this figure means

>>152409241
It depends on what you mean by "as good as the past." I think they still make decent enough flicks, but I don't think that anything they've put out recently is Oscar worthy in the same way the UP would be.

The body swapping phenomenon is a warning system against the meteor that comes every 1200 years. You would need to swap with someone in the future to prepare against it, hence the 3 year gap. That's why Taki said "All the dreams the Miyamizus had must be leading to this day".
>>
>>152409570
And before anyone asks how come nobody knows about the purpose of the body swapping into the future, everything was documented by the temple, but all records were destroyed by Mayugoro's fire. Hence why Grandma said "Even though the meaning is gone, our customs must be preserved".

yes but why 3 specifically. why not 1 year. or 1 month. Does the body swap only happen during the miko's youth? What if some disaster happens when the swap isn't occurring? Does the swap only occur if a disaster is approaching? Shouldn't there be a better method of detecting disasters other than body swapping, like future visions? Is the underworld spit (which causes a time paradox btw) an intended step of the disaster prevention procedure or just a backup plan in case the miko and the swapped guy fucks up? What determines who the swapped guy is? Can it be a girl? Can it be a fatass? What if the swapped guy is a criminal and kills everyone in the village? Why did the cellphone messages corrupt after the guy found out the village was destroyed (wtf????)?

One of the things I can forgive is the brats not noticing the difference in year on their cellphones. The ancient architects of this miko body swap system should have added 0.5 years to the swap so that the difference in season (snow/summer) instantly alerts the swappers of the time difference.

fuckin dreams how do they work

It doesn't have to be 3. It's just a coincidence that in Mitsuha's case, it turned out to be 3 year difference. In the side novel, Yotsuha was swapped with a person from 1000 years ago. The body swap happen when the mikos are connect with musubi god via kuchikamisake. This musubi god has govern over time and fate so after the pact with people and god wes made, the god will carry on his duty. The swap occurred in every generation of miko, but with its dream-like quality, they will eventually forget it. And because of musubi thing is about time, relationship and fate, the way to express it's power is via swapping not the future visions. Nope, the underworld is the boundary of god so every souls inside are protected, it is not the back up plan. The thing that determine who the swapped guy is is the miko herself. Mitsuha specify her specs to god. And Taki is lucky to be that one, or you would say they're bounded by string of fate from the start. Cell phone entries happens in dream, right? And in another aspect, it acts as human memory storage, so it is still in the god power coverage.
