Kimi no Na Wa premieres on August 26!

This is the anime movie I am most excited for in 2016, and I think it premieres August 26 (so soon!) though it was shown before at an anime convention, methinks. It’s already gotten such good reviews from those who have seen the movie, and it’s garnered a 8.5 rating on MyAnimeList.

The basic plot revolves around a female high school student who lives in the countryside, and a male high school student who lives in the city. The two mysteriously end up switching bodies with each other (I’m kinda reminded of the Kdrama Secret Garden) and it turns out they’ve been secretly striving for the lives the other lives. The title is aptly named Kimi no Na Wa, or translated as Your Name. I imagine questions of identity and self become increasingly important as the movie progresses.

Here are some trailers:
