Weathering With You is the latest anime film by director Makoto Shinkai (Your Name) and the third anime film recently announced centering around water. Seriously, it’s either water or fire themed this year, but I digress.
Not much is known about the story of Weathering With You, but if it’s anything like Your Name audiences can expect a romantic story with a slight supernatural twist. The trailer does show a boy and a girl who seem to like each other and the girl apparently has the ability to make rain move in reverse.
I doubt that Shinkai’s new film will break box office records because lightning seldom strikes twice. Even so, the film should be judged by the quality of the story not on how much money it makes. So, if the art seen in the trailer is any indication, Weathering With You should be a beautifully engrossing anime film.
