I went to see this movie back in December 2016 when it released at selected UK cinemas, it was a one day release at my local cinema so I was lucky enough to pre-book tickets to go see it along with a friend.
The only problem though was that it was the dubbed only version at my local cinema and not subbed like I would have liked it to be, though the English dub wasn’t half bad; it was actually pretty good, I’ve heard worse dubbing than this, but it was a cinema release so I wasn’t expecting it to be bad English dubbing or they wouldn’t have released the dub at all.
I’ve seen another of Makoto Shinkai’s anime movie works, Kotonoha no Niwa (The Garden of Words), its more of a short anime movie as suppose to Kimi no Na Wa (Your Name), but it was another masterpiece that I had previously watched by him, and I thought I would check out his new anime movie as I had the opportunity to watch in cinema, and also the trailer looked so good!
Anyway, a part from it being the dubbed version, it was very enjoyable, funny and emotional to watch in some parts. The art style is so beautiful and even the scenery is just mouth dropping stunningly detailed, like seriously!
Throughout the film it messes with your emotions and your mind, it makes you think constantly.
I honestly can’t praise this film enough, everyone has got to watch this movie at some point in their lives.
