Taki, Miki, and their friend Tsukasa travel to Gifu by train on a trip to Hida in search of Mitsuha. However, Taki does not know the name of Itomori, relying on his sketches of the surrounding landscape from memory. A restaurant owner in Takayama is from Itomori and recognizes the town in the sketch. He takes Taki and his friends to the ruins of Itomori, which has been destroyed and where 500 residents were killed when Tiamat unexpectedly fragmented as it passed by Earth three years earlier. Taki observes Mitsuha's messages disappear from his phone, and his memories of her begin to gradually fade, realizing the two were also separated by time, as he is in 2016. Taki finds Mitsuha's name in the record of fatalities. While Miki and Tsukasa return to Tokyo, Taki journeys to the shrine, hoping to reconnect with Mitsuha and warn her about Tiamat. There, Taki drinks Mitsuha's kuchikamizake and then lapses into a vision, where he glimpses Mitsuha's past. He also recalls that he encountered Mitsuha on a train when she came to Tokyo the day before the event to find him, though Taki did not recognize her as the body-switching was yet to occur in his timeframe. Before leaving the train in embarrassment, Mitsuha had handed him her hair ribbon, which he has since worn on his wrist as a good-luck charm.
Taki wakes up in Mitsuha's body at her house on the morning of the festival. Hitoha deduces what has happened and tells him the body-switching ability has been passed down in her family as caretakers of the shrine. Taki convinces Tessie and Sayaka, two of Mitsuha's friends, to get the townspeople to evacuate Itomori, by disabling the electrical substation and broadcasting a false emergency alert. Taki heads to the shrine, realizing that Mitsuha must be in his body there, while Mitsuha wakes up in Taki's body. At sunset, the two sense each other's presence on the mountaintop but are separated due to contrasting timeframes and cannot see each other. When twilight falls,[note 1] they return to their own bodies and see each other in person. After Taki returns Mitsuha's ribbon, they attempt to write their names on each other's palms so that they will remember each other. However, before Mitsuha can write hers, twilight passes, and they revert to their respective timeframes. When the evacuation plan fails, Mitsuha has to convince her father, Toshiki, the mayor of Itomori, to evacuate everyone. Before doing so, Mitsuha notices her memories of Taki are fading away and discovers he wrote "I love you" on her hand instead of his own name. After Tiamat crashes, Taki returns to his own timeframe and remembers nothing.
Five years later, Taki, having graduated from university, is searching for a job. He senses he has lost something vital that he cannot identify, and feels inexplicable interest in the events surrounding Tiamat, now eight years in the past: Itomori was destroyed, but all of its people survived as they had evacuated just in time. Mitsuha has since moved to Tokyo. Sometime later, Taki and Mitsuha glimpse each other when their respective trains pass each other and are instantly drawn to seek one another, disembarking and racing to find the other, finally meeting at the stairs of Suga Shrine [ja]. Taki calls out to Mitsuha, saying that he feels he knows her, and she responds likewise. Having finally found what each had long searched for, they shed tears of happiness and simultaneously ask each other for their name.

But you know very well that it won't. First you'll forget the details. What shirt you were wearing, the exact words you said or wanted to say. Her hand on your palm that felt so tangible just a few seconds ago, reduced to a cold sensation that served as nothing but a reminder of the warmth that was once there.
Collective trauma threaded by dreams and remnants, recognizable only when it loses all weight and dissipates into the unconscious. A one-of-a-kind stasis confronted by the realities of truth and the freedoms of love, constructed via questions of "who?" and "where?", all leading back to "you". Sneaks up on your tear-ducts and completely lifts the heart - a physical force of emotional responses.
Bad news for all the new baby Sophias born in 2017: The name, while still wildly popular, is past its prime, according to newly released baby name data from the Social Security Administration. After a three-year run as the top choice for baby girls, from 2011 to 2013, Sophia fell to third place in 2014 and 2015 and fourth in 2016 and fifth in 2017 behind Emma, Olivia and Ava.
What the film is ultimately about, then, is love. Not just romantic love, but a larger cosmic love, love for your faith, love for your family, love for your world and the place you inhabit in it. Musubi, Mitsuha's grandmother calls it at the beginning: the ribbon that ties us all together. Another definition: the spiritual, creative energy that binds us to the gods. The ribbon can twist, tangle, and sometimes even unravel, but it will eventually join again. Because this is the world we are born into, it is our duty, and our desire, that keeps it alive.

Eventually, she realizes that occasionally she takes the place of a high school boy from Tokyo named Taki, and vice versa. As the two of them start to fathom what is happening to them, they try to find a code of communication in order to keep their lives from being ruined. After some time, they start getting along, but soon tragedy comes knocking.
"'Your Name' is the epitome of excellence in animation and I have no doubt Makoto Shinkai's name will be widely recognized across North America within the next few years,'" said Mike DuBoise, EVP and COO of Funimation. "Congratulations to everyone at Toho and CoMix Wave Films for such a prestigious honor!"
Your Name is probably not a good film to take your grandmother to. At least, not unless she has the wisdom and insight of Hitoha, grandmother to Mitsuha, the young girl whose strange body-swapping experiences are central to it.
Just finished watching and decided to leave a comment here. The emotion is so tense, rich, and overwhelming. I can feel the heartbreak once the protagonists forgot each other name. The flow was great, the building even was spectacular while the ending was lackluster. Still, bikin baper. :))
I watched this movie this morning. I thought I was just not paying attention to the movie but turns out it was very hard to follow. After I rewinded and watch part of the movie again I realized Taki was 3 years ahead of Mitzuha. This article helped me confirm that. Thanks for your help!
To this end, rather than choose one ministry to support this year, we invite each person or family to prayerfully consider to which work of mercy you would like to direct your Lenten almsgiving. Below you will find a list of the 14 works of mercy, accompanied by a community organization that is living out that particular work of mercy. Once you discern the work of mercy for yourself or your family, you can either collect alms to support the accompanying organization, or you can chose a different one that better fits with your heart.
A resident of the town formerly known as Barrow, Alaska, rides her motorcycle along an Arctic Ocean beach in 2005. The town is now officially called Utqiagvik, its Inupiaq name. Al Grillo/AP hide caption
In October, the people of the Alaskan town formerly known as Barrow, on the edge of the Arctic Ocean, voted to restore its indigenous name, Utqiagvik. Zachariah Hughes of Alaska Public Media reported that the traditional Inupiaq name Utqiagvik refers to a place to gather wild roots.
"The authors [of the ordinance] also acknowledged that Inupiaq is the 'original, ancestral language of this area and our people' and that returning [the town name] to Utqiagvik would 'promote pride in identity'and would 'perpetuate healing and growth from the assimilation and oppression from the colonists.' "
Opponents of the name change were concerned it would cost the city money, reported The Arctic Sounder, "both in terms of changing all official references to the name on things like stationery and signage, and the loss of emotional capital or recognition that come along with the name 'Barrow' for tourism and business."
Although the name became official on Thursday, some of those changes are still coming. The state government website listed neither name, Barrow or Utqiagvik, on Thursday. The website for the North Slope Borough School District, of which the high school in Utqiagvik is part, still lists an address in "Barrow, AK."
Nicholas Brink signed an exhibit agreeing to change their name to Anderson Lee Aldrich, as did both of their birth parents, Aaron Brink and Laura L. Voepel, according to other exhibits attached to the petition.
The Denver Post first reported the stated motive behind the Club Q suspect changing their name. The Washington Post first reported that Aldrich had changed their name from Nicholas Brink when they were a teenager. 781b155fdc
