Somewhere along the way, I had also begun to wish for something, not knowing exactly what that something was.

Well that was a fascinating and emotional roller coaster! I watched the film yesterday and when I saw there was a novel too I knew I had to read it.

Japanese people shall never seize to impress me with their abilities to create such epic masterpieces! First of all the film was excellent· the art, the plot, the music and generally the whole atmosphere was quite magical.

"Il motivo è che ho sentito che da qualche parte ci fossero dei ragazzi e delle ragazze come Taki e Mitsuha. Questa è ovviamente una storia di fantasia, eppure credo che da qualche parte esistano delle persone che hanno vissuto esperienze simili e provano sentimenti simili ai loro. Che hanno perso figure o luoghi importanti, e che hanno deciso mentalmente di lottare lo stesso. Persone che continuano a tendere la mano verso qualcosa che non possono ancora incontrare, assolutamente sicure che un g ...more

Bello bello bello.
La trama la sapevo a tratti, non ho voluto apposta informarmi, perchè volevo evitare i soliti spoiler.
E ho fatto bene! si perchè mi aspettavo un'altra cosa, più o meno e quindi mi ha piacevolmente stupita.
Trama: Mitsuha Miyamizu, una studentessa delle superiori che vive nella piccola cittadina di montagna di Itomori, nei pressi di Tokyo, è stufa della sua vita monotona: vorrebbe essere infatti un affascinante ragazzo della metropoli. Sua madre è morta per malattia, mentre suo p

2 out of 5 stars! ⭐ THIS BOOK WAS OUR MARCH 2018 BOOK CLUB READ: I have to say that I was just not impressed by that book. It was hyped up so so badly that I just had really high expectations... Also, the layout of the book was so weird and I had difficulty in finding out when the narrator changed. I guess the manga as such would have been better, but this month’s book from our book club was another bitter disappointment.

เปนนิยายพลอตดีทีมาตกมาตายตรงสำนวนเลา
ตอนเปิดอานหนาแรกๆ ผิดหวังอยางรุนแรงมาก

เหมือนบทภาพยนตรมากกวาทีจะเปนนิยาย
ผิดหวังกับคำโปรโมท "ยอดขายถลมทลาย" มาก

แตเมืออานมาถึงชวงหลังๆ เหมือนผูเขียนจะเริมลืนไหลลืมตัว

This is my first time ever reading a Manga and oh my what an amazing experience i haven't been hooked in a book like this for a very long time ,, The story is very sweet and adorable i couldn't help but watch the anime too and it lefts me with a very beautiful feeling why can't this kind of colorful magical events be in our gray dismal reality!! I absolutely recommend the manga and the movie (read/watch) it I promise u will all love it.

Eu acho que essa história funcionou melhor no filme (que amei!), ou talvez em mangá (que não li).
O enredo é exatamente igual ao do filme, mas o que se acrescenta é o ponto de vista mais intimo dos personagens já que é em primeira pessoa. Só que com isso acrescentou-se também uma ideias machistinhas do personagem principal que não tem no filme.
Acho que os diálogos também, que soam naturais em um anime ou mangá, em forma de prosa parecem muito exagerados. Eu estou acostumada a ler mangá e ver um p

I liked the idea of Your Name. It is like a time travel/paranormal/magical fantasy blended into one and it's up to you which one you want to choose. I chose the time travel one so I've looked (me being an intellecteual jk) for some "technical" or even not-so technical explanation about the time travel (and body-exchange) phenomena in this book. Sadly, I think I haven't read one? Thus, I've just reflected my dismay on the rating i.e. 3 stars. Lol.

Anyway, I think I just didn't connect with the mai

Ein schöner Roman mit interessanter Erzählweise und einem sehr schönen Setting.
Der Roman hatte es anfangs ein wenig schwer, mich mitzureißen und die Charaktere kamen zunächst nicht wirklich an mich heran. Als ich mich jedoch in die Geschichte und die Erzählweise eingefunden habe, habe ich es sehr genossen, den Roman zu lesen. Irgendwann will man einfach wissen, wie es ausgeht. Die Geschichte war schön erzählt, ich mag generell Körpertauschgeschichten sehr gerne... jedoch bin ich nicht der größte

Hitoha Miyamizu: Musubi is the old way of calling the local guardian god. This word has profound meaning. Typing thread is Musubi. Connecting people is Musubi. The flow of time is Musubi. These are all the god's power. So the braided cords that we make are the god's art and represent the flow of time itself. They converge and take shape. They twist, tangle, sometimes unravel, break, a

This had interesting ideas but the writing was dull, perhaps due to the translator.
And the repeated groping of the boobs got old fast.
This worked better as a movie. It was very appealing, visually, so it wasn't as noticeable where there were weaknesses elsewhere.

Conto i Giorni che mi separano dall’uscita del DVD di Your Name.
Per non sentirne troppo la mancanza mi sono decisa a leggere il romanzo da cui è stato tratto il meraviglioso film d’animazione.
Confesso che avevo una certa fifa a leggere questo libro.
Temevo di rimanerne delusa in qualche modo. Beh… SONO STATA UNA POLLA!
Shinkai non ha solo il dono dell’animazione, ha anche quello della scrittura! In pratica è un genio!
In 180 pagine riesce, con una scrittura pratica e che va dritta al sodo, a tra

Me enamoré tanto de la película que necesitaba más, y aunque no me ha saciado, esta novela ha sido algo que me hacía mucha falta, además, no es solamente el guion novelado como ha pasado en otras ocasiones, no, aquí encontramos sentimientos, pensamientos... detalles que en la película se pierden... es precioso, para qué enredarme más. Pero la peli es mejor.

Kimi no na wa racconta la storia di due ragazzi giapponesi di diciassette anni, Taki e Mitsuha.
Taki vive a Tokyo con il padre, è affascinante ma assolutamente imbranato con le ragazze. Ha due migliori amici, Tsukasa e Takagi, che condividono con lui la passione per l’architettura.
Taki lavora part time in un ristorante italiano, Il giardino delle parole (riferimento a un’altra opera di Shinkai), e ha una cotta per una senpai (una ragazza più grande di lui), Okudera. La sua vita è piena e felice.

I feel like you need to watch/read this knowing nothing about the plot because trust me, this is amazing. Honestly, even if you don't like anime you would like this.

I fili si congiungono e prendono forma, si torcono e si intrecciano; a volte si sciolgono, si spezzano e si uniscono di nuovo.

Sulle note dei Radwimps cerco di mettere insieme due parole per descrivere ciò che ho provato leggendo Your name, ma è un'impresa abbastanza difficile.
Onirico. Surreale. Mistico. Nostalgico. Spirituale.
Non esistono termini migliori per definire questa storia.

I still can't.

If you can't find the manga anywhere, do yourself a favour and watch the anime.

Just do it. It is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. And if you've read my other reviews, you'll know I'm one of the most heartless, a-romantic reader you'll ever find.
