Round Rock, Texas - For all of you late bloomers and "afterwhilers" within the anime fandom; we were treated to something special this past weekend at Anime CTX.

From director Makoto Shinkai, the innovative mind behind Voices of a Distant Star and 5 Centimeters Per Second, comes a beautiful masterpiece about time, the thread of fate, and the hearts of two young souls.
Easily one of the most, picture-esque animated films I've seen to date. Not a surprise to see that Shinkai was the director on this one; but I was still blown away by the level of complexity and detail. It's like the famed-director took things to a whole new level and delivered a timeless, instant-classic with 'Your Name'. The Funimation English track for the film was also done very well, and although you could tell there were a few workarounds, the overall product was polished. Check out the trailer for the film below:
