- Weathering with You review by HM
If you are into Japanese anime this won't let you down. Boy runs away from College to Tokyo. There he meets a girl who has ancient magical powers over the weather but there is a price to pay for this. Can he help avoid this? Charming, visually splendid it is another family or adult entertainment. Not a classic like Spirited Away but a worthwhile watch.
