To say Your Name. was a phenomenon is a hell of an understatement. It grossed more than $350 million worldwide—an unparalleled achievement for an anime film. And now, the studio responsible for the film has a new movie coming to Netflix—Flavors of Youth.
Please treat yourself to the trailer below:
Those colors just take your breath away, don’t they? I can’t stop watching that scene where the chef pours the broth. I’ve said it before, and I’ll continue saying it: I don’t care what the movie is about. If the animation looks that incredible, I’m watching on principle.
Speaking of what the movie is about, here’s the official synopsis for Flavors of Youth:
From CoMix Wave Films, the creative visionaries behind the international phenomenon Your Name, comes Netflix’s new anime feature film Flavors of Youth. Told in three chapters in three cities, Flavors of Youth explores the simple joys of life through sensual memories and how the beating heart of love cannot be defeated by the flow of time.
Between the trailer and synopsis, this certainly seems like the MO for a CoMix film. Like Miyazaki and nature, CoMix loves the concept of love through time. And really, have they let us down yet?
