First Look At Weathering With You, The Follow Up To Your Name

Your Name was one of the best films of 2016. This summer, director Makoto Shinkai is back with a new anime feature. Here’s our first look.

Called Weathering With You (Tenki no Ko, or “Weather Child” in Japanese), the movie once again features the music of Radwimps, the band that provided the memorable songs for Your Name.

The movie isn’t a sequel to Your Name, but in many ways, looks like a spiritual successor. It tells the story of a young man who gets a job at an occult magazine and meets a young girl with the ability to change the dreary weather.

Weathering with You opens in Japan on July 19. No word yet on an international release.


  • In order to reverse water, wouldn’t you need to double the force at which it comes down? That seems pretty dangerous.

    • You would merely need to accelerate it upwards at a rate that is equal to(in order to have out hover) or exceeds (to make out move upwards) 9.8m/s squared. Further, even if you doubled the force, half of that would go to combating gravity, the other half would make the rain “fall” upwards at the same speed it came down. You wouldn’t say falling raindrops are dangerous, would you?

  • One day, Shinkai will make another film as good as She And Her Cat. Based on this trailer, though, I can safely say that this movie will not be that day.

    • You didn’t like 5cm/s? That’s still his highest point for me, but SaHC comes close.
