Mitsuha is the daughter of the mayor of a small mountain town. She's a straightforward high school girl who lives with her sister and her grandmother and has no qualms about letting it be known that she's uninterested in Shinto rituals or helping her father's electoral campaign. Instead she dreams of leaving the boring town and trying her luck in Tokyo. Taki is a high school boy in Tokyo who works part-time in an Italian restaurant and aspires to become an architect or an artist. Every night he has a strange dream where he becomes...a high school girl in a small mountain town.Written by
Mitsuha's name means "three leaves" and follows a family trait. Her grandmother, Hitoha, is "one leaf," her mother, Futaba, is "two leaves," and her little sister, Yotsuha, is "four leaves." See more »
After Taki and Mitsuha meet on the edge of crater and Taki is left alone after end of dawn, a panoramic view shows the city's lake in its original form (before comet hits the city). It shouldn't be the case, as Taki is back to present day, where collision has occurred. See more »

Although the film was not released in India in an official Hindi dubbed version, a YouTube AnimeTM Dubbers has provided one, with the credits showing the name of Hindi voice cast prior to the original. See more »
Much has been said about this great animation and most of it is true.
It is beautiful, tender, modern (watch the film and you will understand) and makes human love interesting again.
With that said, it is too bad that Hollywood has picked this up. Not that I will be watching that remake, but I cringe already at the thought of Hollywood hack and remake specialist giving this an American swirl. All the cliches of bad remaking and safe corporate changes will be applied. Aaaarrrggghh
