With stunning visuals and a compelling narrative, this anime is a cinematic masterpiece

An an anime fan, I must say that this is one of my favorite films I've seen so far. The film features complex character development throughout a story that is remarkably profound while being simple enough that younger viewers can follow along with the main ideas. There are a few brief suggestive scenes and occasional suggestive dialogue that is mainly used for comedic effect or to make a point about something, but nothing too graphic or mature for young tweens and above. Expect moderate violence where characters are punched, slapped, or shot at (without being hit), but it fits well within its context and is used to enrich the storyline or characters in some way. There is some occasional mild to moderate profanity, but it's nothing that middle schoolers haven't heard before. Drinking and smoking are shown infrequently, usually correlating with one particular character who is not portrayed as a role model during those scenes. The main plot involves the development and pursuit of a relationship, but not much more than hand holding is shown. Overall the film resonates with a thought-provoking positive message and is an excellent anime for adults as well as kids middle school age and older.

Another Masterpiece by Makoto Shinkai

(This review is spoiler FREE)
If you liked Your Name, the most popular movie by Makoto Shinkai, then you’ll definitely like this too, but don’t expect it to be exactly like Your Name, because this movie has no big twist like Your Name, if you feel that Your Name lacked in the romance aspect, then this film is for you, it would definitely satisfy your desire to watch the development of two people’s relationship. Tenki no Ko (Weathering with You) follows the journey of two young protagonists, Hina, who can stop rainy weather, and Hodaka, who ran away from his home, to Tokyo. The story centers around the relationship of these two characters, since it is a romance/fantasy movie. If you don’t like romance because it’s cheesy for you, then don’t worry, this film has nothing cheesy, to the average person at least. Weathering with You has stunning visuals, as you’d expect from a Shinkai film. The soundtrack also lives up to expectations and helps set up the mood and atmosphere necessary for certain scenes.

Violence: 2/5
The main character (Hodaka) finds a gun in a restaurant and points it at people at multiple scenes. A man also trips him. That’s all that is needed to be mentioned, otherwise there are just a few mildly violent scenes because of police chases.

Sex: 2/5
Hodaka looks at a woman’s figure/breasts in some scenes and the viewpoint makes it impossible not to focus on the woman’s figure. Reference to working in an inappropriate job to earn money. Hina takes off her robe to show something, which I will not mention since it may give away important plot points. Nothing graphic is shown.

Language: 1/5
Very few bad words

Drinking/drugs/smoking: 1/5
One character likes smoking. Other scenes may possibly involve drinking and drugs but I can’t remember...

Consumerism: is that even important?

Another Makoto Shinkai Masterpiece

Like Your Name, it is another film that mixes romance and sci-fi. As usual, the animation is wonderful and so is the concept.

It’s more lewd than Your Name, so I’m putting it at 11+ instead of 10+ but once again, it’s not too bad. The swearing is also mild and rare.

a objective review of some concerns you might have

this film is good but i want to explain

Due to cultural differences this film contains mild (very mild) "fan-service" and sexual content i.e kissing, hand-holding (oh my how lewd)
fan service in anime or manga is potentially erotic content, such as nudity and other forms of eye candy (for example, sexy maid costumes). often using an "accidental exposure" excuse to show a favourite female character, in a compromising situation

however this film is relatively mild compared to shows like kill-la-kill that contain frequent fanservace

A film to never forget!


Weathering With You is a very impactful anime film which consists of beautiful writing and amazing art.

The story consists of a teenager who runs away from home and fate leads him to a girl who can control the weather. The girl is nicknamed a "Sunshine Girl". They become friends and do various things with eachother but being a sunshine girl and running away from home have tons of consequences.

The message is beautifully constructed and if you're into anime, this is a must watch.

La mejor peli que he visto estos últimos años, no diría que es mejor que your name pero si que la iguala y el nivel de satisfacción, tiene una historia emotiva y muy buenos personajes

Es una pelicula hermosa 100% recomendable para los que vieron Your name y una pelicula que te enseña que hay cosas desconocidas en este mundo y que a veces siempre hay que empezar a madurar como persona pero sobre todas las cosas hacer todo lo posible para proteger y estar con aquella persona que más amas en el mundo

Absolutely Stunning in All Categories

Music, animation, plot, voice acting was amazing.

Their soundtrack made the scene look brighter and pop with more life. Animation was gorgeous and almost photo like. Plot made you on the tip of your seat wondering what was going to happen next.

Of course some parents may not like their young child watching teenagers using guns (twice) and running away from the cops.
