Can it be stopped, /a/?

>As of this month, Makoto Shinkai's your name. (Kimi no Na wa.) film surpassed Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away as the highest grossing anime film worldwide. Miyazaki is known for his harsh criticism of certain types of animation, but he had remained silent about Shinkai's hit film since it opened in Japan on August 26. However, Studio Ghibli co-founder and former producer Toshio Suzuki recently shared some of the director's thoughts on Shinkai's latest film.

>The February 2 issue of Bungeishunjū's Weekly Bunshun magazine featured an interview with Suzuki on Thursday. Regarding the trope of "a girl losing her way in a different world" seen in films like Spirited Away, Suzuki said, "I had a prediction that someone would make that sometime." Miyazaki apparently agreed with Suzuki's sentiment. The director said, "Yeah, that's right. I won't do it, but [the film] goes just like I thought."

>Suzuki also commented, "The term 'another world' is used successfully time and again, and I had a hunch that Makoto Shinkai is a fan of Hayao Miyazaki." The former producer praised Shinkai's film, adding that "It's made so that all the characters in the drama, lines, and music make the background stand out." "The high fall sky that seems like it could be breathed in was especially impressive," he said.

>The Case of Hana & Alice director Shunji Iwai compared the film to Rene Magritte's 1959 painting The Castle of the Pyrenees for its "enduring persuasive power with audacity." Although Iwai noted Magritte's painting is a much "higher" work, he was impressed by Shikai's accomplishment. Anime theme song lyricist and AKB48 founder Yasushi Akimoto said his "heart quivered" when he watched your name.
>Shinkai's film returned to the top spot in the Japanese box office for the January 21-22 weekend. The blockbuster film has set theatrical screening records across Asia. According to Box Office Mojo, the film had earned US$306,795,190 worldwide as of January 17. Funimation will begin screening your name. in North America on April 7.
Miyazaki seems unimpressed.

The power of gender-bending breast-fondling.

Well, jokes on you, I'm going to Moonland next month. Going to watch it with my glorious nip friends.
I didn't understand why they fell in love before even meeting each other, nor did I like how many plot holes the latter half of the movie had, one after another.
What plot holes?
Grandfather paradox
Bootstrap paradox
How did the father "know" that Taki wasn't his daughter?
Why were their memories fucked?
Am I incorrect in my understanding that there are zero Miyazaki quotes in this article?
yes, they didn't interview miyazaki
If you get to Japan by February 10th you can see it in theaters with English subs.
>Grandfather paradox
>Bootstrap paradox
The film never used either paradoxes. Since both paradoxes are merely theoretical scientific ideas of what could possibly happen with time travel, the non-use of them is not a plothole. If anything, it's using the time is always in flux trope.
>How did the father "know" that Taki wasn't his daughter?
Clearly you weren't paying attention. He knew the same way the grandma knew, i.e. Mitsuha's mom and grandma also body swapped when they were younger. He's probably heard about it from his dead-wife or the grandma.
>Why were their memories fucked?
Do you remember the fine details of your dream? To them it felt like they were dreaming. This is mentioned many times. It's like you didn't watch the film or something.
I'll be a week late
O-oh i guess that explains it.
I'd be fine with magic to suspend my disbelie as long as the magic was consistent, but everything that happened was too random.
only legit plot hole is that they didn't realize they are 3 years apart
even Taki realized that Mitsuha is using an old model phone that were on sale several years ago

That's neat. I'll have to try and snag a view.
Miyazaki invented isekai now?
