I'm curious to see who else has seen Weathering with You/Tenki no Ko. It was the first anime movie I saw in theaters that were not a Dragon ball movie lol. I thought it was very good and am curious to see what other people thought of it. If you haven't seen this I highly recommend it.

I actually got a chance to see it!
So, I got a chance to go to Tokyo while I was studying abroad. The movie takes place in Tokyo, and the movie did a really good job making me feel like I was back there again.

-And as an 'outsider', I feel that was very purposeful.

They spent the whole movie making you fall in love with the city.

It also felt like I was sitting in on a very Japanese conversation. There was a statement about how life is valued in that culture, and desires of the individual.

There was a lot about child labor laws, and children's rights. I thought that was very anti-anime too because usually, in other anime, children/teenagers seem to be able to go weeks without going to school having adventures n shit...?
This movie did NOT play that.

And then it was very anime in that we literally watch the main characters fall from heaven for about 5 minutes. If I dunno what anime is, it is that.
It was an experience~. A pleasant one. I feel like we need to have more cross cultural conversations like these. I was very glad to pay to see it if that means we can see more things like it.

I wasn't as impressed with the music actually. Sometimes it just came on at random times and, lol-
It might have made sense for the Japanese screenplay, but not so much for us. Especially that climatic gun scene.

The art was beautiful though~.

I loved Weathering With You!! I actually like it more than Your Name, shh (although I think Your Name was a more solid story, I really enjoyed watching the characters interact and jive in a way they couldn't in Your Name)

The art and animation were gorgeous as always, and I LOVEEDDD the music this time around. Just incredible songs written specifically for the movie. RADWIMPS never disappoints!

The themes of the movie were very well done imo, and I just loved the little brother character-- he was so cute hahaha. A big recommend from me too!

I really enjoyed it! Beautiful animation and soundtrack, cool story, interesting characters. I thought the ending could've been a bit better, but still, great movie.
