Where to Watch Kimi No Na Wa (Your Name) Online

  1. Youtube

A video streaming website that everyone is familiar with, Youtube is one of the easiest places to watch Your Name.

While Youtube is normally a free video streaming platform, they also have full-length films available to buy or rent. This is incredibly convenient, as you can watch the film from pretty much any device where you can access Youtube. To find the film, simply type in Your Name or Kimi No Na Wa into the search bar and look for the film which is hosted under the account “YouTube Movies”. Please note that film availability depends on your location and it may not be available on Youtube in all countries.

Price: 500 yen ($5 USD) to rent, 2500 yen ($25 USD) to buy

  1. Amazon

While Youtube is one of the most convenient places to watch the film, Amazon is likely the cheapest.

Prices will vary per country, as will availability of the film However, on Amazon.com Your Name is only $3.99 to rent and $4.99 to buy. It is important to note that you do NOT need a Prime Video membership to rent or buy this film. However, Amazon has very strict restrictions in terms of using the correct website. Living in Japan, I was not able to rent the film on Amazon.com because my credit card had a Canadian address.

Price: $3.99 USD to rent, $4.99 USD to buy

Language options: English (audio), English (subtitles)

  1. PlayStation

One place I was very surprised and very pleased to find the film was on the PlayStation store. Again, the availability of the film depends on your location.

However, if it is available, you can watch Kimi No Na Wa straight through your PlayStation 4 or (if you have the app) you can download the film to your Android or iOS devices after purchase. Both the original Japanese version and English versions are available on the PlayStation store.

Don’t have an Android phone? No problem. You can rent or buy the film, as well as many more anime titles, on iTunes. Just like every other place where you can watch Kimi No Na Wa online, availability may depend on your region.

Price: $4.99 USD to rent, $14.99 USD to buy

Bonus: Buy the Your Name Collector’s Edition Box Set

This Japan exclusive box set was about $55 USD when I bought it used, but it was definitely worth every penny. It comes with both dvd and blu-ray discs, as well as additional “making of” content. Also, there was a book included that had the full script of the film in Japanese as well as exclusive stickers.

For die-hard Your Name fans, this box set is a must-have.
