When two teenagers – a girl in the country and a boy in Tokyo – realize that they can inexplicably switch bodies, a deep romantic bond is forged between them. Unfortunately, the memories that they form while in each other’s bodies fade quickly once the effect has ended. To top it off, a comet is heading to Earth that spells possible disaster for one of the pair. This sci-fi romance from renowned Japanese animator Makoto Shinkai (Weathering With You) is an intricate, mindbending, and magical masterpiece.
“Your Name is a stirring tale of rescue with a boisterous edge of YA mischief. It’s also a love story with a swoony romantic affinity for the age-old tussle between chance and fate.” – Ella Taylor, NPR
