It's safe to say that a lot of Filipinos loved "Kimi no Na wa (Your Name.)." It is, of course, the highest-grossing Japanese animated film in the country, achieving that feat last year. 

But this Pinoy couple took their devotion for the body-swap romance to a whole new level, painstakingly recreating the film's trailer for their pre-wedding video with the guys at Pixelfish Concept PH. 

The result was just about as accurate as you can want for a fan-made tribute video featuring movie-faithful costumes. 

The only difference was the setting, but how they incorporated the country's MRT line to stand in for Japan's JR Line has definitely won them more than just a few fans. Check it out below: 

 

Directed by Makoto Shinkai, Japanese director who has drawn comparisons to Studio Ghibli's acclaimed auteur Hayao Miyazaki, "Kimi no Na wa" is about two teenagers drawn to each other by gender-swapping dreams. 

It was shown in the Philippines in December 2016 to much commercial success.
