Makoto Shinkai's "Your Name" has passed Spirited Away as the highest grossing anime film of all time.
It will be playing in NYC soon enough. We usually see the premiere at the film festival, but it got sold out fast. It will have a wider release later on, though. Rym saw it, somehow with English subtitles, because his flight to PAX South was a Japanese flight.
Still crazy to think that Makoto Shinkai started completely independently. He just made entire animations on his own. Most of the other top anime people got their starts working on the low end of the totem pole on larger productions. Even Miyazaki was doing inbetweens at Toei.
