Critically-acclaimed anime movie Your Name is on a U.S. theatrical run that may qualify it for an Academy Award. It’s the story of a small-town girl and a Tokyo boy switching bodies—and changing each other’s lives—that is the fifth highest-grossing anime film of all time. In 2003, Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away won the Best Animated Film Academy Award. Your Name, the WSJ reports, signals a “changing of the anime guard.”
