Before this class, my knowledge of anime was restricted to the childhood shows I used to watch like Pokemon, Dragon Ball Z and Beyblade. I wasn’t aware of the consistent and ongoing genre of anime as much.
Thus, I had never heard of Your Name before. I wasn’t aware that it was the huge hit that it was. So, before watching the movie I saw the summary online and I wasn’t very impressed it seemed to be like any other gender reversal story like ‘it’s a boy girl thing’ where two classmates change identities one morning after a series of incidents the night before.
