Ready for another heartwarming and lots of crying?


Japanese Filmmaker Makoto Shinkai’s 2019 hit ‘Weathering With You’ will be available on Netflix this Friday, July 31.

After the successful premiere of the Japanese filmmaker’s highest-grossing anime film ‘Kimi no Nawa (Your Name),‘ the Shinkai’s newest creation ‘Tenki no Ko (Weathering with You)‘ will be released on the streaming platform this Friday.

Weathering With You’ is a sprawling love story involving Hodaka and Hina, who is a mystical weather maiden. The film is a little less beloved compared to ‘Your Name’ due to its convoluted plot, but it is nonetheless, a great showcase of emotional heft and lush animation, perhaps even surpassing that of ‘Your Name.’

Moreover, it was also selected as Japan’s entry for the Best International Feature Film but it didn’t make the shortlist. It still scooped several accolades including the Animation of the Year prize at the 43rd Japan Academy Film Prize.
