We love when there’re anime at the movies! During 2017, thanks to Nexo Digital and Dynit, we can watch in Italian theatres some Japanese animated films, included a couple we want to suggest you. The first is Your Name, the latest movie by Makoto Shinkai and one of the biggest successes ever in Japan. In the theatres only the 23rd, 24th and 25th of January, it’s one of those movies any animation lover should watch. Here’s our 5 reasons to book your seat at the nearest movie theatre (if it’s out in your country) or grab a copy of the DVD!
It’s a classic love-story… with something more
The protagonists of Your Name are two high school students: Mitsuha, a girl living in a small country town, and Taky, a boy from Tokyo. One day, while a comet passes above their heads, they wake up one in the body of the other, with all the series of misunderstanding you can imagine, and they start a weird long distance relationship that almost feels like a dream. Mitsuha and Taki are the typical “shoujo manga” couple, but their peculiar story is captivating right from the beginning.
The story is complex and unpredictable
Do you think the plot if Your Name is trivial after all? Well, you’re wrong! The twist comes right at the end of the first half of the movie, when we started to countdown for the meeting between Mitsuha and Taki (they must meet, right?). The revelation is so big, it changes completely our perspective and the typical teenage love-story, with a bit of paranormal, becomes something much more dramatic and exciting.
