‘Your Name’ Analysis

The beauty of a story is based on its stylistic features that allow the audience to relate it to
their own lives and “find” themselves in the characters presented in the storyline. The ability of
the audience to relate to the happenings of a story allows them to relate and use the movie’s plot
to compare and fantasize about their own lives. Traditionally, stories were used to engage and
educate people on those values that were expected of a person. It was a communication channel
through which behavior codes and societal values were passed on amidst creative and
entertaining narration. This element has not been removed in modern-day story-telling modules.
In fact, it has presented a more realistic and engaging way of reaching its audience. The anime
film “Your Name,” is one such narrative. Told on a Japanese background, the plot captures those
instinctive attributes that allow its audience to relate the events to their own life. It is a fantastic
love story that aims to challenge the physical characteristic of time through love. The audience is
captivated by those tremendous shifts of time that allows the two protagonists to evade death and
find each other. The popularity and success of the anime film are bound by those human
elements that drive interest in narratives while at the same time by the manner in which it
captures humans’ most crucial virtue; love.
Overview Perspective
Love is the most definitive virtue that drives relationships and allows people to find value
in themselves and those around them. It is through love that societies are built, and human beings
find the understanding to relate to each other without destroying one another. “Your name” uses
this paramount virtue to capture a story that is emotionally engaging. The popularity of the film
is found in its foundation storyline that allows for the audience to use the story to relate to their



own life. The director is keen to use love as the foundation that drives the two protagonists to
shift through time space and save each other from destruction. Just like “Titanic,” “Your Name”
utilizes the emotional aspect of love to appeal to its audience interests (Geiger & Rutsky, 2005).
Through the life of Taki and Mitsuha, the audience finds an importance that appeals to their
fantasy. They can “see” themselves in these two protagonists and fantasize on their life being as
dramatic as Mitsuha’s and Taki. Each chapter of Taki and Mitsuha life is suspenseful and yet
engaging to the point that the audience almost hopes it was their life. Love is universal, and this
shows why “your name” has gained international attention and success despite telling a Japanese
Japanese Perspective
The world has been overfed with west rhetoric, a rhetoric that has lost its initial meaning.
Today, many films try to tell their story from a western perspective and in the process, they lose
their initial purpose. The western rhetoric is unique in its way, and it is the reason that has made
it so successful in influencing lifestyles and modern culture. In contrast, “your name” utilizes a
Japanese perspective in telling a story of love. The audience is treated to an intriguing love story
that is narrated in Japanese culture, devoid of any intercultural mix (Geiger & Rutsky, 2013).
The story gained worldwide interest because people saw it from a Japanese perspective and were
treated to Japanese culture through its storytelling and the way the protagonists choose to react to
their immediate situation. It is this element that allowed the film to gain popularity in China, a
different culture altogether and become a top box office film. Reviews in England and the United
States described the movie as an original rendition of a Japanese movie capturing the very
essence of the Japanese culture. The cultural attribute of Japanese culture made it a film of



reckoning especially in influencing perspectives and allowing its audience to experience a
narrative founded on those values that hold together a Japanese storyline.
It is undeniable that the film “Your Name” is aesthetically attractive and even
captivating, despite being an anime film. Its instrumentality and the way the director chose to
recreate the films scenery is amazing. Far from the storyline, the audience is treated to an
amazing Japanese animation that allows the audience to relate to the story effectively. The
director was keen to produce a picture that was real in the way the characters interacted with
each other and with the environment. The director also utilized cinematography essence to
capture the protagonists in the element and allow the storyline to find importance in narration
and in fulfilling an important role of informing the audience (Geiger & Rutsky, 2005). The
director not only concentrates on the storyline but also on those aesthetic aspects that feed the
narrative in such a manner that the audience relates to the content and can enjoy the narrative.
