In a new trailer, it seems that these English versions of the songs are actually decent. Getting an English dub right for an anime is incredibly difficult at the best of times but localizing songs is a whole other nightmare. Especially when in this case the score for Your Name has gone on to be as revered as the movie itself. This is because the music in Your Name is really important throughout the movie and plays a huge role in the film's suitably epic climax.

With her trainer Jabez Wolffe following alongside in a boat, Ederle made her first attempt to cross the channel on Aug. 18, 1925. Seven miles from the English coast, fearing that Erdele was exhausted and drowning, Wolffe ordered a safety swimmer to pull her from the water. Ederle was furious, and fired Wolffe. She brought on trainer Bill Burgess, who had successfully swum the channel more than a decade prior. A year after the first attempt, on the morning of Aug. 6, 1926, she stood on the beach at Cape Gris-Nez, France, greased herself with petroleum jelly and lard to protect against cold water and jellyfish, donned her modified motorcycle goggles and struck out for the English coast.

Mahjong is a traditional Chinese card game that's similar to the Western's world rummy. It is usually played with four players and involves 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols.
