i saw Your Name. on the airplane during a flight from Tokyo to SF. I absolutely loved it, even though i was watching it on a little 7" screen. some scenes got me all teary eyed and choked up, which was probably awkward for the people sitting around me. Already preordered tix to see it at my local theater, i just have to see it on a big screen.

I watched it on a plane, too (Tokyo to Warsaw, then to Milan. LOT Polish Airlines is actually pretty good, especially for the price, but I digress).

It was really good. Probably better than anything else that's ever been that popular. Complex enough to keep me interested. Emotionally manipulative at times, but in a way that's actually pretty entertaining. Like, moments when the character needs to do that thing, and it's obvious enough, but they hesitate just the right way and the right amount of time to get you to sit there screaming internally, "Do the thing! Do the thiiiing! Dooo iiiitt.... yes.... YES!!"

It was reeeeaaalllyyyy cuuuuute.

Such a wonderful movie. I just watched at the movie theater.

What bothers me is that there were almost no people in the room. I mean, it was the premiere. We have to support these movies when they get an international release.
Other than that, I loved the movie from start to finish.

I saw it at the theater this afternoon and I really recommend it. I really recommend seeing it at the theater since there are several parts where the sound from what is happening on the screen makes a large impact. Makoto Shinkai's landscape backgrounds are always a sight to behold and the story line was very engrossing.

On the way to Japan I saw Your Name on the ANA flight (great movie, lovely story) and I thought, since I'm going to Tokyo anyways then why not- I should try visiting some of the places shown in the movie!

I just saw it again, on a proper big screen this time. I was able to see a lot more detail than just watching on a tiny plane seat screen.

I took these pics last November.

Stairs near Suga Shrine


The stairs of the ending scene. Wow, looks like this place is already world-famous, because now there are a whole bunch of couples traveling there just to film at this now-romantic spot! I thought that was funny... There were so many people there that it was hard getting a clean shot. But it was cool.

Yotsuya Station



This JR station was not that far from Suga Shrine. We got off there and took some shots. The above shot was a close imitation of the scene shot when the main guy was meeting someone for a date, and that date was waiting for him.

Yoyogi Station


This is where the first confrontation between the two main characters in a station happened. The station was crowded when I was taking a pic....

Saw this in the theater 4 hours ago. They are showing it dubbed and subbed, I saw the sub. I don't regret it. It was amazing. It was 106 minutes of art watching. There were times I forgot I was watching something animated. I'm glad I saw it on the big screen. It's definitely going into my home collection.

Beautiful movie with a powerful story. It deserves every award it receives.

What bothered me was the audience. Granted I watched the very last showing really late at night, and the crowd was very thin probably because of this, but I was the ONLY girl in the whole theater. Like, really? This is the perfect movie for date night.
Girls: Go see this movie! Don't miss out. You will enjoy it. (and bring tissues)

Well theater was packed here. Though I guess due to limited number of locations showing it.

Very few folks were in the theater when I saw it, but I chose a late afternoon showing when many people are still at work (I was able to got at that time since I was on vacation), and I chose subtitle even though there were also showings, at other times, of both the dub and the sub. The lobby was packed when I left the theater (though no doubt most were there for other shows in the 20-theater multiplex). Also there was one other nearby theater showing it, in Boston proper.

Hopefully A Silent Voice gets a U.S. theatrical screening in the future as well
