Your Name (Kimi no na wa), the astoundingly successful anime film of 2016, will finally reach our US shores next year, thanks to the great foks at Funimation! If you've been living under an anime rock, Your Name is the latest anime film by renowned anime director Makoto Shinkai, so far has made over 16 billion Yen (158 Million USD), making it the 5th highest grossing Japanese animated film and the 11th highest grossing Japanese film. This is a first for a non-Studio Ghibli or Hayao Miyazaki anime film to ever reach this much success.

Your Name is written and directed by Makoto Shinkai, whose first works include Voices of a distant star and 5 centimetres per second which featured beautifully made and emotionally-stirring art and stories, made Shinkai a name to watch in the anime industry. The film Your Name (Kimi no na wa) is about two highschoolers who have never met mysteriously find themselves switching bodies. They slowly build a connection by try to communicate over time and try to meet each other but there are things keeping them from meeting.

I've been hearing so much positive buzz about this movie and being a big fan of Shinkai's works, I really want to see this one. Are you excited? Why isn't it 2017 yet?
