Consensus: As beautifully animated as it is emotionally satisfying, Your Name adds another outstanding chapter to writer-director Makoto Shinkai's filmography.

San Diego Reader

Throughout, there is the nagging sense that the whole thing will unravel if any one thread gets tugged too hard, but when both the heart and the sky are on fire, why lean in and go squinting at flaws?

This concept could be used for stock shenanigans worthy of a John Green novel, but Shinkai unleashes a twist early on so clever and cerebral that J.J. Abrams and Christopher Nolan will kick themselves for not thinking of it first.

The Mail on Sunday (UK)

The vital second half feels ponderous and over-blown, and the eventual explanation too complex for its own good.

San Francisco Chronicle

You may have to fortify your illogicality tolerance when viewing the anime adventure "Your Name." But this body-swap romance by the exciting and talented filmmaker Makoto Shinkai is nonetheless exquisite, beautiful and entertaining.

Alternate Ending

The absolute very best kind of crowdpleaser, the kind that genuinely does seem to have a little something for everyone.
