Your Name Review — A

Fuck that was good.

My only complaint is that the ending was too happy. But it was heartbreaking and lonely and hopeful and had fucking gorgeous clouds just like all his other movies. I want to go back and rewatch all of them now.

  1. Saw it last night myself. So, SO good. It was as beautiful as all his work has been, and he finally nailed the story. Most of his other stories were either evocative but never resolved, or resolved but had pacing issues. This was nearly perfect. 10/10, would watch again and will definitely buy on BluRay.

  2. lol …the ending was too happy
    after 5 cm/s I don’t want to see another “bad ending” from Makoto Shinkai
    I know it was the best and fitting ending…and that it have to be done…
    anyways…I hate and love that ending…
