Your Name.

Your Name. ★★★★½

"In the wake of Hayao Miyazaki’s supposed retirement after The Wind Rises, Studio Ghibli has managed to retain their strength as proven by Hiromasa Yonebayashi’s When Marnie Was There and Isao Takahata’s The Tale of the Princess Kaguya. Outside of the studio however, is another wonder in Makoto Shinkai. Dubbed as a “new Miyazaki” in some circles, he has managed to convince me he has that sort of talent inside of him, having seen 5 Centimeters Per Second and now, Your Name. I was already moved by the humanistic approach he took with that earlier film, and here he brings it back once again."
