The new anime feature from director Makoto Shinkai, who gave us the 2016 body-swap fantasy Your Name, once again blends teen romance with the mystical.
16-year-old runaway Hodaka arrives in Tokyo where he lands a job as a freelance writer, interviewing those who have had uncanny experiences. Love blooms when he meets Hina, also known as the Sunshine Girl, who has the ability to influence the weather, banishing the rain through the power of prayer. The pair proceed to capitalise on her unique gift, but of course there’s some cautionary fine print regarding the price of such a power… Rendered in a soft pastel animation style, which accentuates the magical elements, Weathering with You is a captivating teen fable with an eco-friendly message, and a must-see for fans of the aforementioned Your Name and the films of Studio Ghibli.
