Weather With You – Key Visual
In the press conference Makoto Shinkai spoke on the upcoming project. He said that he was working to ensure that the new movie is ‘as emotionally engaging and as complex as ‘Your Name.’ So that certainly means that he has no intention to let his fans down.
Anime News Network describes the plot as follows: The movie follows the story of a high schooler named Hodaka (Daigo Kotaro) who runs away from home and moves to Tokyo. Lonely and desperate to support himself he agrees to work for a “shady occult magazine.” Hodaka slowly starts to come to terms with the big city life. Amidst this, he notices that it has been raining in the city, day after day. On one busy and a crowded day, he meets a young woman, Hina (Nana Mori). And eventually learns about her ability. She has the power to stop the rain and clear the sky.
