Finally we get an English Dub and Sub version! As of writing this review Amazon does not have the details for what is included in the Limited Edition. Here it is: Your Name Limited Edition contains two-piece double-sided collectible chipboard box with rainbow holographic finish; 2-disc original soundtrack by RADWIMPS, with English and Japanese versions; 60-page hardcover art book, and Art digipack.
I was able to see this in theaters during its limited run in North America. I was blown away by the artistry displayed in this animated film. I heard the hype before seeing it and it met those expectations, which not many films can do. Makoto Shinkai, the director, has been a favorite of mine for a little while now and many are calling him the next Miyazaki. While I am not a fan of those comparisons, I can say that Skinkai's style is very entertaining to watch and absorb. His use of light and hyper detailed backgrounds really suck you into his films. He tends to lean in to young characters who are in some sort of long distance relationship and Your Name is no different. The two main characters are a joy to watch because they come from opposite sides of Japanese society, but both are tied together by the events of a strange meteor that passes Earth every few hundred years...There is much more to be said about the story, but talking more about it would give away key details that I believe would be better off not being spoiled. And before I wrap this up, I would like to say that the music for this film is superb. I find myself often listening to a few key tracks whenever I get a chance.
If you have a friend or family member that has little to no anime experience, I would show him/her this film. Anime is so broad and diverse that it can be hard to give good suggestions to new watchers, but I believe Your Name is a perfect introduction.
Thank you for reading my review and have a good day.
