Hi, sorry I am very late in replying. I did not get a notification on it. But the profile picture is from Koisome Momiji.

It wasn't stated in the movie, but the movie was ultimately made for a Japanese audience so some things like the Shinto symbolism were never meant to be explained super in depth.

What other anime have you watched?

In addition to meaning bonds and knots and coming together, Musubi is one of the core concepts in Shinto that refers to the power of creation and the spirit of birth and becoming. From http://www2.kokugakuin.ac.jp/ijcc/wp/bts/bts_m.html

"Musubi

The spirit of birth and becoming. Birth, accomplishment, combination. The creating and harmonizing powers. The working of musubi has fundamental significance in Shinto, because creative development forms the basis of the Shinto world view."

When I watched the film, I never really saw it as him going back in time into Mitsuha's body. After it was revealed she had died, I interpreted as him communicating with a Mitsuha in a parallel but different worldline from his. Any sort of intervention that would have caused a paradox within Taki's worldline (e.g. the two meeting each other when Mitsuha is dead in one worldline) would have ended their communication, and that is what happened. In Taki's worldline, Mitsuha is dead, but after Taki consumes the kuchikame saki, a new worldline is created (tying the whole fate/destiny musubi thing together). I'll have to rewatch the film again to really expand on this further, but I have no interest in rewatching the shitty rip that's out right now.

Some time I'm going to do a detailed writeup rebutting a lot of the plot hole related criticisms, especially the phone/date thing. I'll wait until a proper release though.

I agree, and I think a lot of the people criticizing the film for being shallow probably overlooked a lot of its content because they had arrived at a predetermined opinion of the film being overhyped or such.

(Though the red string of fate should have appeared in enough anime by now to be immediately recognizable to any experienced viewer as a symbol for destined bonding between two people.)

I personally think a lot of the themes flew over the heads of the people who are extremely harsh on Your Name. At the same time, I can't fault them too much because some of the ideas and symbols in the film, such as musubi and the red string of fate, could be lost or missed by a foreign audience.
