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 Happy_Evil_Dude

When a shock wave reaches a bridge, translucent, waving horizontal lines are visible. They are smoke rocket trails, used in filmed scientific and military explosion tests to visualize the edge of the shock wave in air. As far as the plot goes, there is no reason for their deployment, and suggests that the animators might have used films of explosion tests as reference footage. See more »

I'll get someone to drive you to a hospital in the city. I'll listen to you after a doctor examines you.

1- This is a fun animation and has many pretty elements. I think more people should watch it.

2- Hollywood hacks are remaking it US style to make money. No one should watch that copy.
