...this vividly realized and emotionally satisfying feature ought to make Shinkai a household name
Makoto Shinkai could be the next big name in anime… a blend of gorgeous, realistic detail and emotionally grounded fantasy.
Japan’s #1 hit phenomenon of 2016 from innovative director Makoto Shinkai.
The day the stars fell, two lives changed forever. High-schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers, living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki’s body and he, hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet somehow, it works.
They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages, and more importantly, an imprint. When a dazzling comet lights up the night’s sky, it dawns on them. They want something more from this connection — a chance to meet, an opportunity to truly know each other.
Tugging at the string of fate, they try to find a way to each other. But distance isn’t the only thing keeping them apart. Is their bond strong enough to face the cruel irony of time? Or is their meeting nothing more than a wish upon the stars?
