Your Name. Your Mark on History.

kimi-no-na-wa

I feel a tremendous sense of satisfaction knowing that the most successful anime film in history is not a soulless, corporate franchise picture owned by a giant conglomerate or publisher but rather a film created by an individual artist with a history of creating deeply personal, emotional films, and an anime produced by a small studio specializing in experimental, auteur productions. The wild success of Your Name seems to re-validate the principle that anime remains as much a humanistic artistic endeavor as it is a mass-market commercial product.
