I will not provide any story spoilers, but will say, the artwork in this film is incredible, the level of detail is exquisite, small tiny details are captured in the backgrounds, the characters are well developed and charming in their own way, but I found the story a little weak.
In conclusion, if you have watched Your Name and enjoyed it, you will enjoy Weathering With You, In fairness, I probably had higher expectations due to the previous "Your Name" movie, and Weathering With You is definitely worth watching, however, in my opinion, Your Name is the superior of the two movies.
I've been a fan of the director's work ever since I saw Your Name (I have never cried so much at a film before or since) and I really like the joyous theme of hope in this one. Your Name was sad, but it had a happy ending, whereas this one was just a joy from start to finish!
The plot centres on the love story of Hina, a girl who has the mysterious ability to manipulate the weather, and Hadoka, a runaway teen who has come to Tokyo in search of a better life. Hadoka starts working for an occult magazine investigating the mysterious, and eventually bumps into Hina and they become friends. When Hina shows him her ability to control the weather, taking him to an isolated rooftop so she can clear the rain, the two hatch a plan to make money out of her strange ability, by advertising that she can make the sun shine. People, naturally, are skeptical at first, but once her miraculous talent becomes apparent, Hina becomes dubbed 'The Sunshine Girl' and the offers come flooding in.
I won't go into more details, you should really watch it for yourself, as frankly, the animation is beautiful, as is the story and the characters. It has just the right touch of fantasy, but has a foot grounded firmly in the real world, which I really liked, and the depiction of Hina controlling the weather are jaw droopingly cool.
All in all 10 out of 10, go watch it!! :D
Overall worth watching, but if you just choose one of the two, then go for “Your Name”.
We first discovered the director and writer of this exquisite animé, Makoto Shinkai, when, having worked our way through Studio Ghibli’s entire catalogue, we felt sufficiently confident to dip into other Japanese animé studios. We came across his 2007 masterpiece, ‘5 Centimeters per Second’, and fell totally in love with Shinkai’s breath-taking artistry and delightful storytelling. His 2014 ‘Garden of Words’ was equally gorgeous to look at, but the story fell just a little short. But the double disc of ‘Voices of a Distant Star’(2002) and ’Place Promised in Our Early Days’(2004) is again magnificent, as is ‘Your Name’(2016).
All Shinkai’s films share what is, to our mind, some of the most beautiful, detailed, colourful backgrounds in any animation we have ever watched. His skies and clouds, his flowers and trees, and water in any form, is always a sheer delight. That is undoubtedly true in this film, and here, he also shows a feel for cityscapes, given that the majority of the action takes place in Tokyo. The detail and complexity of every shot is quite amazing. His characters too are always interesting and varied, and here he has a substantial cast of both heroes and some villains.
The story, by Shinkai, was influenced by the fact that climate change has apparently led to increases in summer rainfall in Japan. The direct translation of the Japanese title is ‘Child of Weather’, and the film focusses on a young girl who appears to be able to temporarily halt the constant downpours plaguing the capital one summer. And whilst Shinkai has used Sci-Fi motifs in previous films, here, he uses ideas that feel as though they may have been taken from traditional folk tales, or stories from cultural myths and legends, perhaps associated with religion. Certainly, a traditional red Shinto archway or shrine features during the film. It seems the story is not traditional, but that is the overwhelming feeling, and it is very effective.
The interlinking of the weather story and the human interest aspects of the film is very good, and quite sad. It also feels very modern and current. The interplay of the characters is nicely done, and very sympathetic. However, we both felt just a little disappointed. The story meanders a bit. It might have benefitted from slightly tighter direction and more rigorous editing. It just seems a fraction too long, and perhaps a little bit self-indulgent. It is as though someone needed to remind Shinkai and his team that sometimes, less can be more.
That perhaps seems ungenerous, given how gorgeous the film is to watch. We were desperate to really love it, having looked forward to it and originally seen publicity about it months before the film became available. However, our assessment is that this is an exquisite-looking 4 Star tale, not 5.
If you liked Your Name, then you'll love the familiar visuals and overall style, the RADWIMPS soundtrack etc. BUT this is its own movie, its own story, not a continuation nor a sequel... Something parallel, perhaps?
A sideways comparison: while you imagine that Castle In The Sky and Porco Rosso COULD be in the same world, at around the same sort of time as each other, there isn't much of a comparison between them.
Weathering With You is at least as good as Kimi No Na Wa, it's simply very different in so many ways.
