Japanese Manga Artist Imagines Hollywood’s ‘Your Name’ Remake

The community has been having a fun time riffing on the confirmation of the Hollywood remake of Your Name (Kimi no Na wa). Many have been voicing their doubts, but Japanese mangaka @yokoyama_bancho has shared their vision of the remake through Twitter. Spoiler, it’s filled with modern Hollywood stereotypes!

@yokoyama_bancho envisions Taki Tachibana as a foul-mouth white guy from New York City and Mitsuha as a sensitive black girl from New Orleans. Hilarity ensues as this wacky surprise leads to budding love.

The short manga was translated into English by @nise-shi.

Your Name Your Name Your Name Your Name Your Name
