It comes a few months after Netflix added movies from the famed Japanese animation studio Studio Ghibli, and years after "Kimi no Na Wa" was shown in local cinemas to much commercial success.

"Kimi no Na wa" became the highest grossing animated movie in the Philippines in 2016, with critics and fans attributing its popularity with Shinkai's ability to combine gorgeous, breathtaking animation with eternally relatable themes such as longing and separation.

It was shown on ABS-CBN last year, with a Tagalog dub.

The fan-favorite movie is among the new list of Japanese anime titles being added to Netflix this month, with some of the others being "Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress," and "Japan Sinks: 2020."
