Kimi no Na wa “Will Air on TV!”


Absurdly popular anime movie Kimi no Na wa will be making its way to Japanese TV by next year, allowing those too lazy or poor to see it in theaters the opportunity to witness the “truly legendary” film; an inevitable turn of events considering how ridiculously profitable the movie had become.

Originally debuting in theaters in August of 2016, the movie will be broadcasted on TV Asahi on January 3rd; director Makoto Shinkai shared his thoughts on this milestone:

“I would have never imagined that I would see a movie I made air on prime-time television. I’m also starting to feel a bit nervous about how everyone will see this work.

Hundreds of thousands and even millions of people watch the new year’s broadcast at the same time, with various emotions all also occurring at the same moment. I think that enjoying the work with so many people together will be a first experience for those who repeatedly watch movies; I believe I also want to enjoy this experience.”

The unequaled notoriety built up by Kimi no Na wa acquired it not only an AV parody but an upcoming live action Hollywood adaptation.

    No one said, that it was most emotional. Its just sakaku dudes are mad at the movie. Must be some sort of trauma :D

    ...No. It was a great movie because it did what it had to do and did it well. Stretching out something to abide by ratings, social norms etc on the long run is just fucking trash tier for the movie to go to.

    Hollywood eyeing Japanese novels, twisting it to conform to the vocal social minority, sullying the name of an otherwise better show by ruining first impressions... the list goes on.

    Does it matter..? The only shit that works globally is stuff like All You Need Is Kill, that really boils down to an action movie where people are fighting aliens so of course Edge of Tomorrow did well.

    When you get into shit like Sword Art, or generic love stories, you know nobody outside of the "dankest weebs" will care, much like when they played the Sailor Moon movie in the states to crowds of 1-3 people...for a week.

    I wonder, will that "legendary Hollywood"'s adaptation be also "absurdly popular"...
