Happy birthday Mitsuha! (21)
Don't you remember her birthday?
I went to see it in theaters for the third time, this time dubbed. I only managed to shed tears once during the hand reveal scene. However, the experience is starting to lose some effect since I know it all goes down very accurately, but the dub was decent enough to carry the film.
I would recommend people to watch it at least twice in theaters if they still can. For now I'm just going to wait until the BD comes out to refresh my mind for another go.
Yeah, I'm a little nervous to see it a third time because I think it won't quite be the same. But, I'm tempted to see the very last showing in my area just so I can have the shortest wait possible until the BD.
You'll mostly only get more thrills from close-examining the little details once you know everything. For example, only in my third viewing did I realize that the flashback sequence features the same scene where Mitsuha tells Yotsuha she's going to Tokyo for a while. By the third viewing, you should have gotten most of the subtlety that the film throws at you, and any further will just dull your experience and fondness for the film. So yeah, do stay fresh in mind after the film so you can go for a much fonder experience during the wait for the BDs.
Thanks, anon. I'm hoping we get plenty of threads to share it in between now and the BD. That last one was kind of a shit show.
I noticed that Taki is also into models, as shown by a miniature Osaka castle in his room along with some model boxes. He probably can build architectures as well as he can draw them (which is also shown by how he built the wooden cafe with Tessie).
Yotsu's dub voice was actually pretty good, almost one-to-one with the Japanese voice.
Theaters here added showings until May 4th, that's a sign to go see it again.
You mean you don't cry at stupidly adorable love shit? I'm sure everyone saw
Taki writing "I love you" instead of his name on Mitsuha's handcoming but it still got me to tear up like a tremendous faggot. That and many other scenes.
>Mitsuha still has to wait 4 more years with an endless feeling of longing for something she can't explain.
Poor Mitsuha, she's too sweet
I watched it 7 times, and I found that the second time seeing it was the most powerful, really hit me the hardest, then in the subsequent viewing would try to find little details and tidbits and it kinda of took the enjoyment out of it, but then the 7th time i just watched the film, and it was really enjoyable again. easily my favorite movie and I could watch it again right now if it was in theaters.
PASTEBIN IS FUCKING DONE MATES
Well for now at least, think I got everything I wanted to add.
Thanks, anon! You're the best.
Is it just me, or are these threads getting noticeably slower? Seeing everyone posting about meeting up and how much the movie meant to them was legitimately something I feel glad to have experienced here.
>tfw kimi no na wa threads are slowly dying out
It was fun while it lasted lads
Thanks for this, nice collection from the threads we've had over these 3 weeks.
At least in the states in mostly gone from theaters, i hear a few independent theaters are still running it into may but very few.
But yeah, these threads really have been magical, I got to experience one of those meet up with another anon, people spilling their guts over this movie in these threads, sharing how they feel and how the movie made them learn about themselves and their lives, (I hope all the anons who were seriously depressed are feeling better, I am), anons coming up with theories and ideas about the film and its messages, anons find tiny details that show up for half a second. Can't wait till the BD's come out so we can experience part of these threads again.
I have a small problem with this film.
The film did have an emotional impact on me on the first two watches. On the third I decided to take note of everything and I got bothered by two things.
1. Why was adult Mitsuha in the prologue saying the the comet was nothing less than a "beautiful view?" Didn't she see with her very eyes the disaster that took place on the village? And why did it show the timeline where she dies?
2. In several instances Taki (in Mitsuha's body) had thoughts, but we hear Mitsuha's voice instead of Taki's. An example is when they were about to go visit the Miyamizu god, and Taki thinks about Mitsuha's half.
I know I might be nitpicking, but this bothered me a lot during my third viewing and it kinda ruined it for me. Next time I watch it I'll probably not overthink it and just enjoy the ride.
As for the prologue, I'm not sure. Maybe another anon has an idea. We're shown that timeline because that's what happens if Taki does nothing - time paradoxes aside, we're watching Taki actively change the timeline. It's not really an alternate universe, just the one timeline that's changed forever.
As far as the voices, that's probably tricky to answer apart from the fact that it's less jarring for viewers to hear two voices coming from the same character, regardless of who is inhabiting the body. For an in-universe explanation, maybe it's possible that people think in the voices of their body, similar to how people "think" in different languages. Maybe there's some kind of connection to the brain thinking, knowing how the words would sound coming out of the body's mouth. It's not really possible to figure out in a universe where body swapping isn't real.

Yotsuha's dub was my favorite out of all the characters
Welcome to the party, anon. You're not alone.
That's awesome, anon. I'd love a poster, but I also know that it would probably just end up in a roll in my closet or something.
Side note, God bless Radwimps for their amazing music. Even if I couldn't understand the words, I still felt the meaning, which is one of the really special parts of this movie for me
But the hand reveal didn't even make sense. Taki's message conveyed no meaning in any story nor thematic sense. He needed to put his name, but didn't for some reason. No wonder Mitsuha forgot his name.
I like to think Taki considered it more important Mitsuha knew he loved her than her knowing his name. Definitely fucked up priorities, but still within the realm of reason to me
But even she didn't try to write her name. There's no horizontal line in Mitsuha. She was going to write what he wrote as well. They literally didn't want each other to remember the other. That's fucked.
They both planned on pulling the same sort of thing, expecting the other to write their name. Also, they were overconfident in thinking they could remember the names without writing it down.
The only BD/DVD date we have so far is some time in October, but I'm not sure if that includes an American release. Also, if you're not aware, Radwimps sang all of the songs in English for the dub: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8P4DSooYSoo
You guys are thinking of it in the wrong context. It wasn't that he didn't want her to remember his name, it's that he knew she wouldn't. Remember that the condition for crossing into the underworld/shrine was to give away what was most precious, which to him was the memories of her. So instead he gave her something more valuable; the "I love you" message gave her courage/happiness when she needed it most and allowed her to finish the job and convince her dad to evacuate the town.
So it's not /a/, but has anybody here seen Upstream Color? I was really reminded of it the first time I saw Kimi no Na wa. It's filmed beautifully, and is also a supernatural/sci-fi romance about a couple who is drawn together but not sure why, and the plot details are mostly left intentionally hazy. Would recommend to anybody who's interested in something thematically similar.
But she didn't even convince him to do it? He shut off the evacuation notice and then nobody ended up evacuating even from the girl on the announcer system. I have no idea when they ended up actually evacuating.
All the people started evacuating but were told to stay until further notice
Then when Mitsuha confronts her dad, he recognizes it's actually her and she's all determined and shit
So he presumably listened to her and evacuated everyone before the comet hit
It happened off screen, but she did end up convincing him. After she falls and sees her hand, she gets up, starts running again, and you see a shot of her making it to her dad's office before the meteor montage starts. As for why he beleived her remember that she told him earlier that the meteor was going to break apart, so now that her prediction had come true he had more reason to go with what she said.
I'm annoyed that they didn't show it.
And they definitely weren't evacuating. They were all pretty much shuffling around like they normally were. There were tons of backgrounds characters going in completely opposite directions while they were trying to get everyone to evacuate.
It's probably impossible to tell whether Taki knew or not. His lines after Mitsuha disappears make sense in both contexts.
The thing is, it doesn't even matter. The climax of the movie isn't Mitsuha convincing her father, it's her realizing she can beat fate and will live on no matter what. For most of the movie she's been passive, taking the bullying, her dad's embarrassment, etc in hand. Even running to convince her father was more motivated by fear and anxiety, than a genuine will to live on. That scene, where she sees the "I love you," is where it all changes.
Like in the novels. There actually is no confrontation with the father there. Only these lines before we jump to Taki post timeskip.
>“How am I supposed to know your name with this…”
>Then, once again, I broke out in a dash.
>I’m not scared anymore. Not frightened of anyone. Not lonely.
>I understand now.
>I am in love. We are in love.
>That’s why we’re going to meet again.
>That’s why I’m going to live.
>I will live.
>No matter what happens, even if a comet falls on me, I will live.
And that's really the central theme of the movie. This contrast between passive living, and fighting the upstream flow of fate.
If you really want to know what happens, the Manga has a scene from the father's POV, where he sees Mitsuha running in, walking to him, and it reminds him of Futaba. But that scene ends there and we instead Timeskip to Cake Mitsuha rejecting men trying to ask her out.
Yes, nobody was evacuating at the time. Once Mitsuha confronts her dad, he (offscreen) gets the town to evacuate. Although the next shots are of the meteor falling, that's just for dramatic effect. It was high in the sky while Mitsuha was running and they still had time to get everyone out of town.
Eh, I thought it was fine to not show it
I was more concerned with getting to whether Mitsuha or Taki would be reunited/remember each other after forgetting their names
Mitsuha was finally determined and that was enough for me, I didn't need to hear another announcement telling people to evacuate but for real this time
There was a good amount of people walking all in the same direction, so presumably they were evacuating
But like Tessy said, they couldn't evacuate everyone so there were still a few people just staying still
tfw the prologue is a plothole
How does Shinkai get away with it?
Somebody please provide me with some kind of explanation as to how a comet streaking away in the sky can seemingly turn around and strike the village. It just seems like a visual continuity error but I'd love some way to further suspend my disbelief if anyone has it.
It's just an extreme warped perspective. That's what anime does well. Reality doesn't usually have such a strong visual impact, so anime directors make stylistic choices with the use of close-ups, fish-eye views, and slo-mos to tell the visual story.
Well first off the comet would have to be dangerously close to look anywhere near as amazing as it does in the movie. Check out hale-bopp pictures to get an idea of what a real comet looks like. They were trying to show off artistically, not be realistic.
If a comet did disintegrate due to tidal forces, a piece like the one that hit Itomori wouldn't be visible to the naked eye until seconds before it hit you. A big orange chunk of comet heading straight for Earth would be some mass extinction level shit.
He saw how the messages she wrote in his phone vanished. So he must have figured out that concrete evidence, like signing his name, would vanish and only feelings and impressions persist
shit like this is why the bdrips arent out yet
Even though we're from two different dimensions and you probably won't read this message.
I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday Mitsuha!
Happy Birthday Mitsuha!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MITSUHA~!!!!
LOVE YOU :) ;)
>I could have gone to the Kimi no na wa cafe and had her rice
>I hadn't seen the movie so I didn't go
I don't deserve to celebrate her birthday if she's not a part of me.
Lost my first stub though. Pretty mad about that.
I still want to watch it again. It hurts not to.
Watching this movie stopped me from being a bitter and cynical asshole for an entire week. I even stopped having negative thoughts constantly, because all I could think about was "Mitsuha wouldn't like that." It mellowed me out. I couldn't even muster up the energy to play games or watch anything, but instead I went back into drawing (pictures of Mitsuha, of course) and playing the piano again (learning Mitsuha's theme, Katawaredoki, and Nandemonaiya).
But I think the feeling is starting to wear off and I'm starting to become a lazy piece of shit again. I don't want this. Help.
But I get so annoyed over so many things so quickly. And during my mellowed week I understood how petty it all was and I was somehow able to not mind anything at all, because all I could think about was Mitsuha, and the fact that the movie basically drained me emotionally so I was too exhausted to get worked up. But now she's not on my mind 24/7 anymore and it sucks because instead I get tense and agitated and stressed out and every little shit bothers me.
Not him, but do you do any sort of exercise? I find that I tend to relax better after doing exercise. Walking, biking, lifting, just something.
I think just spicing things up and giving your body some work in exercising will help out considerably.
Just got back from seeing it in Tucson again, in English this time. The dub wasn't bad, I'd say the worst part was the English soundtrack, while it's impressive that they did the songs in English too, the lyrics just don't quite fit. They matched the general meaning and the syllables, but it just doesn't sound very musical. I also laughed internally at the "for her sake" line even though it was voiced so there obviously wasn't an accidental accent on the e.
There was a qt asian grill behind me, as I was driving out I saw her walk out and considered asking her what was her name, but I didn't.
What that guy said. You sound like me a few weeks ago. Just leaving your house and exercising for a bit will help you calm the hell down. It could also be your sleep schedule or an outside force messing you up mentally, you need to fix those immediately if you know what it is.
I agree with this. Seeing Mitsuha run up a mountain and back down is really inspiring to push for jogs. So far it's been refreshing instead of tiresome, but if anything else it will help your mood to feel less stressed about life.
Watch Mitsuha's cooking show
I agree with the music, it sounded better in Japanese. Though, it was impressive that they went the extra mile to dub it. One thing I really liked in the dub was Tessie and Sayas conversation at the end. The "She says that while she's eating cake" line still makes me smile whenever I think about it.
She was extremely embarrassed that her friends saw her making it, the idea that her crush drank it (only a month or so after she made it, so the feels were still quite strong) was even more embarrassing. Baka hentai is just a fast, easy way to verbally express that feeling without wasting animation on something that doesn't matter.
very late but Noda studied in America for three years (something I think One Ok Rock's Taka did as well)
Noda's good pronunciation is evident even in their very early albums
First, thank you for all your hard work, we all really appreciate it.
However, if you don't mind, I found some extra stuff that can be added on:
Regarding hedgehogs, there's two more. There's a hedgehog plush that can be seen in the very first scene of Mitsuha's room. It's on top of one of the shelves in the middle. Can be seen clearly when Mitsuha(Taki) is looking in at himself in the mirror.
Second, during one of the last scenes when Cake Mitsuha is stepping outside of her apartment, there's another hedgehog plush on a shelf to her left.
The location and situation made it even more irritating for me.
>Just learn you literally died in a timeline and this dude shows up to save you from that fate
>Get upset when you find out that gross spit sake your grandma made you make was actually useful and was what made this possible
I know it's embarassing, but calling him a "stupid pervert" is kind of shitty.
Mitsuha is dang /fit/ to be running in half the movie
The power of not having a computer to shitpost all day long at a village.
She's 25 by the that point in time (17 during meteor event + 8 years later)
She doesn't have much to do at the village after school outside of hanging out with friends and mandatory miko sessions.
>tfw still showing dub & sub until at least Thursday in my area
I'm the same except I read Barakamon instead. Both that and Your Name are pretty great at conveying the message to live your life to the fullest, plus they feature a city person in an rural livelihood. It really pumps me up to do more drawings for Mitsuha.
Glad these threads are comfy again
>tfw I was planning going to see the movie here
Thank god it's got it subbed. I didn't even know until this thread made me look. Somebody told me to go see it dubbed and I wasn't having it.
I dont know what you are talking about
Mitsuha is pure
The other anon is right, blame all of this on Funimation. Maybe someone told them that April was good because all the other movies coming out then are shit. True, but they forgot that you still have to actually promote a film to get great box office numbers.
What really sucks is that they did everything wrong as far as marketing and distribution, but will still make lots of money by having a minor critical and cult hit. It's not an unambiguous financial flop, which might have forced them to fire the marketing team, and not successful enough to make the rest of the industry more interested in anime.
this started screening here in finland like a week ago too m8
Landepaukut on aina savolaisia t.kääntäjät
Checked it this wednesday. Gotta watch it once with engsub, feels weird to read any other language while watching anime.
>not liking finnish translated 2hu names
IMO, lewding the Mitsuha is only okay if it's also adorable
Updated the hedgehog section in the pastebin, and added an alternate theory I found for the moon imagery. Seems the traditional matchmaking god of Musubi has been associated with the moon, though as I point out there, the traditional Musubi kami and Musubi as described in the film seems to be a bit different.
This doujin is adorable where can I find translation
I don't get it. Why didn't
Obama Just Nuke the meteor fragments?
>tfw you and Mitsuha are the same age
is this true love
>I'm the same age as Taki
>he's a fucking architect
>I went to school for culinary arts because people told me to do what I enjoy
>make shit money
>become a server instead to be able to afford college payments
>tfw I went to college to become a fucking waiter
He does though. He's got a new suit, and has a small backpack. People who are job hunting in Japan tend to bring briefcases so they can bring their resume and portfolios. He's just got a tiny bag for whatever he might need where he works.
yea that scene is underrated
I went pretty much the whole 2 weeks it was in my local AMC.
The movie got more crowded the longer it was in theaters, really felt like it was gaining word of mouth traction, but the worst time I went was to the dub, could have just been unlucky but it was just awful.
>tfw watched sunset yesterday
>no mitsuha to show up next to me
;_; happy birthday Mitsuha!
>just checked to see if it got extended for another week near me
I want to go one more time.
only till july
You hear you lose
aaaa kono mama bokutachi no koe ga
I'm happy Kimi no Na wa didn't have such a sad ending like Garden of Words.
>tfw still don't know if Dog survived
Director's Edition - 12000 yen
4k ultra HD blu-ray
Something about the director, text is too small
Special Edition - 7800 yen
Standard Edition - 4800 yen for BD, 3800 for DVD
Text is so tiny it's hard to read.
But apparently pre-orders get a filmstrip bookmark.
>4k ultra HD blu-ray
now we hope that fansubbers don't fuck it up with shit encoding
About the ribbon, it's important to also remember the novel and how Mitsuha is referred to.
>She is standing on the stairs, eyes open wide, the city of Tokyo behind her back. I notice that her hair is tied with a string the color of sunset.
So it's definitely intentional.
This is the only time I'd call them gender fluid or whatever that shit means
Want to see it a second time in theaters before it stops showing, should I see it dubbed? I remember one anon saying that the dub is worth watching at least once, but is it really worth it?
I saw both and I felt like I got more of the original intent behind some of the lines with two different takes on it. A friend of mine complained that the way they translated some of the lines in the sub weren't very accurate so it's nice to see a different way of doing things.
Being able to be free to look around without having to put any concentration into reading the subs is nice, I know people are obviously used to it but it does takes some amount of time away from the visuals and this is a beautiful movie.
And as far as dubs go it's pretty good, I think the Japanese VAs are better but the dub was still quite good. I really hope they incorporate some of the different translations that were in the dub into the Blu-Ray sub. I feel we could get a much better set of subs if both were combined.
Did you pick up a poster? I asked the workers at consolidated but they said they ran out. I bet they're lying.
so realistically what are the chances of extra animated content? or does this stuff usually just bundled with some interviews with cast and crew.
>tfw you help your crush blow up a power station and she starts talking about some other guy when you're evacuating the village
Just finished watching it the second time.
I admit being a pirate this time, but I did go watch it in the theaters so it's not that bad! I wanted to watch it again alone while the memory was fresh.
Really, second time through I just felt the movie a lot more. Like, it tries to be a beautiful movie more than a great one, to be honest. And I think it achieves that really well.
Another anon mentioned this, but Tessie was the classic Shinkai protagonist all along.
I'm so happy the movie is around till at least the end of this week for me. I'm going to watch it for the second time, this time dubbed. I can never understate how much this movie made me feel
Until someone has watched it over 400 times, I doubt it.
>Tessie's bike seat got to touch Mitsuha's thighs and panties
>It explicitly survives the meteor impact because it was abandoned at the top of the mountain
>Sayaka always wondered why Tessie kept his old bike seat hanging on the wall of their room
