Japanese opening on August 26th
Ahead of its August 26th Japanese opening, new commercials preview Your Name., the new feature by Makoto Shinkai (Voices of a Distant Star, 5 Centimeters per Second, The Garden of Words) with character designs by Masayoshi Tanaka (Anohana: The Flower we Saw that Day) and animation by CoMix Wave Films. RADWIMPS provides the themes and soundtrack.
FUNimation, who has licensed the feature, describes it:
Mitsuha and Taki are two total strangers living completely different lives. But when Mitsuha makes a wish to leave her mountain town and for the bustling city of Tokyo, they become connected in a bizarre way. She dreams she is a boy living in Tokyo while Taki dreams he is a girl from a rural town he’s never been to.
What does their newfound connection mean? And how will it bring them together?
@catsuka She is drinking Yogurina (yoghurt-taste water). I like it though (the commercial & the water...).— ThomasRomain ロマン・トマ (@Thomasintokyo) August 11, 2016
