Really looking forward to the release of these two movies, especially when/if they hit local theatre. Anyone else looking forward to either of what is sure to be masterpieces of 2017? koe-no-katachi (silent voice) or kimi-no-na-wa (your Name)

I should persuade my sisters to watch A Silent Voice. I really need a redemption movie these days.

If I'm not mistaken "your name" blew away every anime movie ever made, in terms of earnings. So it's safe to assume that it will be successful in the west too.

I read koe no katachi and loved it; although the ending wasn't that great.
I don't know anything about "your name", since I didn't want to spoil myself.

I'm probably looking forward more to the latter, since I don't know it's story and based on the reviews it should live up to it's hype.

I for one really enjoyed "Your name" if nothing else the artwork of the author is always pleasing to the eye.

Agreed, it resonates far more on an emotional level. Both are great films, well written and produced, but I don't think I could watch Koe no Katachi in a movie theater with so many other people around.

I love both of them. I think Koe no Katachi was a little better, but not much honestly they were both fantastic.

I've watched both movies and was actually disappointed in Your Name. Everything was pretty decent until halfway through the movie.. then it kind of added some stuff out of left field that didn't make any sense and wasn't explained. Animation is pretty, though.

A Silent Voice was stunning. It was a very long movie, but I never once felt that feeling of... "Is this ever going to end?". I was entranced by the animation (which I find better than Your Name in some aspects), the realistic plot, and the fact that it had something in there for people to learn from.

So, Koe no Katachi hands down.
