DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that the animated romantic movie Your Name (Kimi no Na wa in Hepburn) became Japan's biggest movie in years? This film was a major commercial success with a total gross of $358 million. It even has broken records for Japanese films across Asia, which made it as one of the top Japanese movies. Since it was released, the anime film has spawned limited-run cafes, dating events, and merchandise. Travel companies have organized walking tours of Your Name's metropolitan locations and bus tours to the rural areas. Moreover, many television shows have referenced the film. The songs from Your Name have become the staple at karaoke and junior high schools. Traditional Japanese kumihimo has also become a trendy accessory after it played a central role in the film's story. 

All these suggest that Your Name resonated with its viewers deeply. It is known that Your Name is a coming-of-age story, which is common in Japanese cinema. But what makes it different from the familiar genre are issues weighing on the nation in the 2010s. The film also touches the vanishing rural communities, trauma after the 2011 Great East earthquake and tsunami and the aftermath of natural disasters. Indeed, Your Name is far from a generic Japanese film. Are you now interested to watch this Japanese film? Well, you can watch this on safe anime streaming websites or might as well find websites offering to download anime

    "Anime is one of my favorite things to watch, but it's sometimes hard to find the episodes you want. A lot of hosting sites take down their older animes, or make you go through an endless barrage of advertisements that would put Jotaro's Star Platinum to shame. Soul Anime, on the other hand, has been easy to use, clean, and best of all, has an extensive library of tons and tons of anime. We're talking about like at least an entire year's worth of material here, if you ran your computer 24/7. It's like heaven for an anime otaku like me."
