Last week, I talked and gave a review on the successful and wonderful movie Kimi No Na Wa (Your Name). I simply felt like talking a bit more about it, because the characters are so enjoyable! I will not be able to talk THAT much about them though, since that will be too long of a blogpost. I won´t give my opinion either like I usually do because I have already done it in the review (you can check out the review here !).
Today, Character of The Week is the main characters in the story; Taki and Mitsuha. I suppose I will start with Taki and then Mitsuha.
Who is your favourite out of the two of them~?
Taki Tachibana is the male protagonist in the movie.
Appearance-wise, Taki is a young man with an average build and height who is noted for being handsome. He has spiky, nape-length brown hair with bangs covering his forehead and dark blue eyes. At times, he is seen wearing band-aids because of his impulsive personality.
Personality-wise, Taki is generally a kind, hardworking and caring individual. He is also helpful, responsible, and level-headed. Although he is organized and mostly handles everything quite nicely, his busy lifestyle and creative side; being interested in architecture and art and having artistic abilities, can come off as unorganized but hardworking. He can also sometimes be persistent, and may even be called sensitive towards others as he is quick to anger. This causes him to come off as impatient and stubborn, as he is shown with a bandage on his face the first time Mitsuha wakes up in his body, which suggests that he was injured in a fight.
Mitsuha Miyamizu is the female protagonist in the movie.
Appearance-wise, Mitsuha is a very beautiful teenage girl who has the spitting image of her late mother. Mitsuha has straight, upper-back length black hair which she wears in a unique hair-do; two braids on each side tied into a small ponytail with a red, blue and yellow-orange-colored braided cord and brown eyes. She has an average build and height.
Personality-wise, Mitsuha is a kind, caring, organized and supportive girl who is also determined and sometimes persistent, frank, as well as adventurous. She is tired of her close-knit lifestyle in the small and rural town of Itomori, and as so she is also flaky and uninterested in her family's traditions and wishes to explore outside of her hometown. This is why when she starts switching bodies with Taki, she appreciates every small thing in his life and makes the best out of it. She also becomes enamored with Tokyo city.
