WATCH: ‘Kimi no Na wa’ inspires Filipino couple’s viral prenup video
Japanese anime movie “Kimi no Na wa” (Your Name.) struck through the hearts of moviegoers worldwide in 2016. It also instantly placed director Makoto Shinkai’s name almost on the same level as the legendary Hayao Miyazaki.
The movie has become so popular that a Pinoy couple was inspired to have a pre-wedding video created in its style.
Produced by a company called Pixelfish Concept PH, the pre-wedding video featured the couple Alloy and Shiela. Pixelfish localized some of the shots seen in the original “Kimi no Na wa” trailer. Some of these include Taal Lake, MRT stations and the city skyline.
The dialogue also uses Tagalog for a more Filipino feel.
The clip’s caption reads:
“Isang milenyong bulalakaw ang paparating sa Pilipinas.
Dalawang buhay ang nag-krus.
Ngunit ang mga landas nila ay hindi nagtatagpo.
Isang himala ang magaganap.”
“A millennial comet approaches the Philippines.
Two lives intersect.
But their roads do not meet.
A miracle is about to happen.”
Netizens were surprised at the quality of the video clip. One commenter even found the work better than the special effects used in local television series “La Luna Sangre”.
Since the pre-wedding clip was uploaded on Dec. 28, 2017, it has gone viral, with 1.3 million views and over 38,000 shares.
