Every beautifully drawn anime begins as a series of sketches, and Your Name is no different!
Fans are familiar with Makoto Shinkai‘s style, which makes use of a wide color palette, precise details, and a shiny sheen. So, some fans might be interested in seeing Shinkai’s rough sketches and storyboards for Your Name‘s opening sequence.
In addition to directing, Shinkai drew the storyboards for Your Name. It’s not surprising that almost all of the cuts in this rough cut made it into the final film!
The video was uploaded on CoMix Wave Films’ official Youtube channel to celebrated the movie’s Japanese home video release. However, the video will only be online for a limited time and will be taken down on an unannounced date.
