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.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

Shinkai’s one of those guys along with Edgar Wright where I don’t even need to see anything, just a blank poster with their name that says like “ya boy has a new movie out soon” and I’ll be there day one.
