Funimation put up Your Name. I remember all the hype behind this film and how it it became the highest grossing anime at the box office. After watching it, it was kinda a letdown. I mean it wasn't bad, but Spirited Away is immensely superior to this movie. Its worth watching, but I wouldn't grade it above a solid straight to Netflix feature.
I should smack you for this blasphemy but I'll let it slide. Your Name is a fucking masterpiece and by far Shinkai's best work (I still favor The Promised Place in our Early Days and Voices of a Distant Star (which has not aged well but it's still amazing)) in years. To each their own though, as much as I love Spirited Away it fails to beat out Your Name (and My Neighbor Totoro (my all time favorite Ghibli movie followed by Nausicaa and Mononoke-hime). Shinkai's works are kind of hit or miss for most people (I guess I'm just a die hard fan) and while I find it to be a masterpiece it is kinda over-hyped.
