Makoto Shinkai, director of Voices of a Distant Star and 5 Centimeters Per Second among others, has announced his latest work. It will be called Kimi No Na Wa., which means “your name”.
Kimi No Na Wa. will be the 42-year old director’s first new work since his critically-acclaimed Garden of Words, and promises to be a “tale of love and miracles” which will bring together Mitsuha Miyamizu, a girl living in a rural mountain area with her father, sister, and grandmother, and Taki Tachibana, a boy living in the bustling city streets of Tokyo. The two have never met, but have become connected by a dream of one another.
