Kimi no Na wa. Synopsis
What happens if there was a comet that only passes by every thousands years? Well, it definitely is not going to cause a meeting of two people who will never meet leading to question “What is your name?”
The story is set one month after a shooting star has fallen for the first time in a thousand years in Japan. Mitsuha, a high school girl residing in the country side, wishes to live in Tokyo City because she’s fed up with the repetitive life she’s living and needs a lot more spice. And then there’s Taki, a high school boy living the city lifestyle with his friends and is a part-time worker at an Italian restaurant, with a strong interest in fine arts relating architecture, who also requires a break of his familiar life. One night, Mitsuha, Taki, together with all of Japanese witnessed the well-known comet with of several accounts known for. And that almost very night, Mitsuha dream of herself as a young boy in Tokyo and Taki dream of himself as a young girl enrolled in high school in the country side. Can there be some sort of secret behind their dreams? And does that comet that passes by only once every thousand years have something to do with it?
It’s a love story between two teenagers as they frantically look for each other whom they have never met and as they are dwindled by the terrible reality of circumstances and fate. But the real question here is, “Was there truly even a love story?”
