"Your Name" Mitsuha is 3 years older than Taki

"Your Name" is a really hard movie to understand the story,  isn't it ?

At the 1st time to watch the anime movie "Your Name",  I was just confused.

After 3rd time to watch,  I found why I was confused.

      ( Yes )    Mitsuha and Taki are the same age as 17, when they were swapping their spirits each other.

         ( ? )      When Mitsuha found Taki in the train, Taki was still a junior high school student, 14 years old.

         ( ? )      Right after Taki lost E-mail communication with Mitsuha, he visited Itomori. But the disaster happened 3 years ago.

         ( ? )      When finally they met on the staircase.  Mitsuha was 25 years old and Taki was 22.

After 7th time watch,  I reached the answer.   My conclusion is,

      ( Yes )     Mitsuha is 3 years older than Taki.  And they were swapping their spirits frequently, beyond DISTANCE and TIME.

                       (between 17years old Mitsuha and 17years old Taki) ,  That’s why they believed thy are the same age of 17.

      ( Yes )     When Mitsuha found Taki in the train, Taki was still junior high school student, 14 years old.

      ( Yes )     Right after Taki lost E-mail communication with Mitsuha, He visited Itomori. but the disaster happened 3 years ago.

      ( Yes )     When finally they met on the staircase.  Mitsuha was 25 years old and Taki was 22.  

I hope my conclusion can help you to enjoy the movie "Your Name".
