I might be watching this movie sometimes later this month. Nearest theaters near me is around 15 miles away.

Went to see a 2:45pm sub show yesterday (Friday, opening day) There were may be only a dozen of people in the theatre. It was like a private viewing just for us. Enjoyed the show immensely. You have got to watch it on the big screen, and feast your eyes in the details and the realism of the surrounding.

My wife and I saw it last night. Theatre was about half full and we were the oldest there.
We saw the dubbed version, since my wife can't follow subtitles.

I got a little confused at the point where Taki visits the first crater, but it came together for me later.

Artwork was beautiful. I sometimes tend to get lost in the details/background. But that's one of the reasons I enjoy a movie like this. It sure isn't Disney.

9/10: worth the wait.

Word of warning to whoever watches the sub version. Funi put the subs so low that some letters (like lowercase p's) were even 1/2 cut off. If you are watching it on a biglargehuge XD (maybe it could have been the theater I went too) screen you are often having to look really far down. You get used to it but sometimes you are looking down to read and missing what's going on above you.

This was one of those movies that I pirated then felt guilty about pirating then bought 10 tickets just for myself because I felt so bad about pirating it

Just got home from seeing it and I have to say that was one of the most beautiful films I've seen in recent memory. Theater was sold out too which was awesome. And I totally wasn't crying.. it was just something in my eye >_>

Okay, took me about an hour after watching it (subbed) to finally let the movie set in. I did come close to crying when I realized that


I'd also like to know from anyone who watched the dub: how did they translate the "Watashi?" scene?

I loved everything about it. I haven't throughly enjoyed a movie so much since Princess Mononoke when I was a kid.

I want to see it again and throw my money at the blu rays later. I didn't cry only because the woman next to me was doing it for me but I FELT A LOT.

Can't say enough good things about it, though that ending only convinces me more that I am a masochist and have to piece together the whole epilogue myself for myself.

It was something along the line of "A girl..", "A gal...", "A guy,,,(get to have fun once in a while), you know, as a guy". The sentence in parenthesis is the one I'm not sure about.

Watched it a while ago but I saw IGN's review yesterday and came out a bit miffed. In their conclusion they say that Your Name "doesn't quite match the feel of a classic Miyazaki film", which really annoys me. Shinkai isn't Miyazaki and I've never felt that he was trying to be. His films certainly very purposefully don't have the same feel.

Honestly, the whole review is terrible but this "Miyazaki-centric" viewpoint of some western anime criticism feels shallow and misguided and will never cease to annoy me...

The film was fantastic though.

Saw it twice this weekend. The film was great, I usually prefer subbed to dubbed but in this case i'm glad I saw the dubbed version because the soundtrack syncs to the plot so incredibly that hearing and knowing the words in the lyrics made the experience that much better.

Saw it today. (Okay honestly I saw it a couple months ago online cause I couldn't wait >.< but I had intended to watch it in theaters from the start so I don't feel that bad about lol. And I brought my mom along to make up for my illegal viewing haha.) This is the most beautifully animated movie I've ever seen. It's just so pretty to look at. And I adored the story, it made me cry (again). 10/10. This movie is definitely one of my all-time favorites.

I went to the theaters today, and it has been about ten years since I last went to watch an anime film. This show is simply amazing, and certainly it's every bit as good as the critics are saying. MAL has this as the GOAT, and it's very easy to see why with that twist about what really is going on. Quite a great show that everybody must see going to show that Shinkai has more than just fill the void Miyazaki has left. I ended up going to Bellevue to watch this as that's the easiest one to get to that has the dubbed version playing.
