Weathering with You (Japanese: 天気の子, Hepburn: Tenki no Ko, lit. "Child of Weather") is a 2019 Japanese animated romantic fantasy film written and directed by Makoto Shinkai. The film is set in Japan during a period of exceptionally rainy weather and tells the story of a high-school boy who runs away to Tokyo and befriends an orphan girl who has the ability to manipulate the weather. The film was produced by CoMix Wave Films, Genki Kawamura, and Story Inc., and the music was composed by Radwimps.

Weathering with You was released in Japan on July 19, 2019; the previous day, a novel adaptation written by Shinkai—one of his original works—was published. A manga adaptation illustrated by Watari Kubota was first serialized in Kodansha's Afternoon on July 25 the same year; it was selected as the Japanese entry for Best International Feature Film at the 92nd Academy Awards.[9] It also received four Annie Award nominations including Best Independent Animated Feature, which makes it the third anime film tying with Spirited Away and Millennium Actress to have four nominations, which is the highest for an anime film at the Annies.[10]

Plot[edit]

High-school freshman Hodaka Morishima runs away from home and moves to Tokyo. On the trip, he almost gets thrown off a ferry when a freak rainstorm hits. He is saved by a man named Keisuke Suga, who gives Hodaka his business card in case he ever needs help. While trying to live in Tokyo, he finds a gun in a trashcan and meets Hina. After unsuccessfully trying to live on his own, Hodaka contacts Suga and is hired as an assistant to Suga's small publishing company. At work, Hodaka meets Natsumi, Suga's niece. They investigate urban legends relating to the unusual weather in Tokyo; from a psychic, they hear the legend of a weather maiden who can control the weather.

Hodaka encounters Hina again, who has been intimidated into working at a sketchy club, and rescues her by shooting the gun he found in the air to intimidate the club owners. The two teens escape and she demonstrates her ability to clear the sky by praying. Hina says she will turn 18 soon. Inspired by the legend of the weather maiden, Hodaka proposes that they start a business together; Hina would provide her mysterious ability to people who want clear weather for special events. Their business becomes a success and they attract a large number of clients.

The police, headed by Yasui, begin looking for Hodaka, who was caught on a security camera threatening the club owners. Police interrogate Hina and say that social services will take away Nagi, Hina's younger brother, because they have no legal guardians. Hodaka visits Suga, who had a visit from the police earlier. Suga fires him and gives him severance pay, telling him to return to his island. Suga explains that he is suspected of kidnapping Hodaka and apologizes for his inability to help him more, as he doesn't want any complications that could deter his filing for custody for his daughter.

Hodaka decides to run away with Hina and Nagi. Their plans are hampered by an unusual storm and they spend the night at a hotel where Hina reveals that her body is slowly being turned into water. She explains that her existence is the cause of the abnormal weather and her disappearance would return it to normal. Hodaka promises to protect her. The next day, Hina goes missing, and the rains have stopped. Hodaka and Nagi are taken custody by police. They reveal to Hodaka that Hina is actually 15 years old, which shocks him. Hodaka escapes but police chase him until he reaches the shrine where Hina got her powers. Inside, he encounters Suga, who attempts to stop him from running away any further. Hodaka finds the gun he threw away earlier and the police surround him. Driven by his concern for the desperate Hodaka, Suga helps him escape. Hodaka reaches the top of the building and jumps through the shrine. He is transported to the sky and rescues Hina. As they fall to earth, Hodaka begs Hina to start living for herself, and the rains resume with no foreseeable end. Suga and Natsumi are taken in by police while Hodaka and Hina return through the gate, passed out.

Three years pass; Hodaka, who has returned to his island and has been on probation, graduates from high school and immediately returns to live in a now half-submerged Tokyo. He meets Suga, who has expanded his business. Suga pushes him to see Hina. He looks for Hina, whom he has not spoken to in the last three years. While walking on a rainy day, he finds Hina praying on the other end of the street, and the two are finally reunited.

Critical response[edit]

Early reviews have given Weathering with You a generally positive response. On Rotten Tomatoes the film has an approval rating of 92% based on reviews from 76 critics, with an average rating of 7.4/10. The site's critics consensus reads, "Beautifully animated and narratively engaging, Weathering with You further establishes writer-director Makoto Shinkai as a singularly talented filmmaker."[81] On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 72 out of 100 based on reviews from 30 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[82]

Brian Ashcraft of Kotaku praised the film, saying; "parts of the movie are incredibly moving and for interweaving Shinto beliefs with contemporary Japanese lifelike praying and performing rituals to god for getting clear weather" but later wrote "the biggest problem that Weathering With You has is this: it’s the follow up to Your Name".[83] Daryl Harding writing for Crunchyroll News praised the world-building aspect of the film, stating that Shinkai has his finger on the pulse of modern Tokyo's atmosphere, but criticized the similarity between Weathering with You and Your Name.[84] Kim Morrissy of Anime News Network also gave the film a generally positive review, praising its visuals and use of weather to convey the story's metaphor but criticizing the execution in the second half of the film; she wrote that "Shinkai was evidently constrained by the need to fit his story into a particular template, one that didn't seem to fit the plot this time around".[85] Twwk, reviewing the film for Beneath the Tangles, was mostly positive as well, writing, "The movie isn’t as emotionally powerful as Your Name due to a screenplay that plays too loose (and lazy) to earn its huge moments, but it’s still heartfelt."[86]

Ollie Barder, writing for Forbes, described the animation of Weathering with You as "incredible" and recognized its ability to bring "Tokyo to life in a uniquely palpable way". Later, he praised Shinkai for his way of depicting "wildlife and naturalistic vistas".[87] James Marsh from South China Morning Post praised the film for its animation but criticized it for its lack of "clarity of vision seen in Your Name". He described the plot as more straightforward than that of Your Name but said it has some unanswered, "dangling plot threads".[88] A review by Alicia Haddick for Otaquest praised the film's attempts to differentiate itself from Makoto Shinkai's past work and praised its animation, story and music but said that its reliance on the structure of his last film hurt the movie overall, stating that "it's impossible to discuss this film without the specter of Your Name hanging over your shoulder".[89] Andrew Paredes, writing for ANC X, praised the film's characters, story, themes, and Makoto Shinkai's directing, saying; "The effusive emotion and Shinto mysticism rubbing up nicely against real-world concerns. And then there’s the animation: Shinkai has outdone himself with this follow-up, presenting Tokyo not just with detailed fidelity, but also with a glow that suggests a lush, lambert inner life."[90] Terence Toh, writing for The Star, praised the film's characters and story, saying; "Weathering With You boasts of wonderful visual and likeable characters. The story is also right as rain."[91]
