I love this movie.

It is hard for anyone in the Japanese animation industry to escape the legend of Miyazaki. But Shinkai is paving his own path and he expands on the success of Your Name with Weathering with You.

Weathering With You also explores the myriad effects of climate change on our industrialized society, but I think its message is one of simultaneous resignedness and hope.

Another essential slice of thumping, bittersweet genius from one of Japan's great modern anime auteurs.

This is anime remixed with romance and rock opera ballads - much more of a confection than a social critique. Weathering With You is a typhoon-infused fantasy grounded in a tangible reality.

This film's simply too soggy to live up to Shinkai's other films, box-office success be damned.

Weathering With You does a poor job of balancing its supernatural weather story with its central romance.
January 24, 2020
Makoto Shinkai's sixth feature-length cartoon, Weathering with You, oozes visual lyricism and primal yearning.
January 23, 2020
In WEATHERING WITH YOU, despite falling back on familiar Shinkai tropes, it's still a unique enough tale of the magic that inhabits our beautiful world that we can easily fail to notice.
January 23, 2020
Weathering With You is a worthy follow-up to the phenomenon of Your Name., with a much more vital message.

A compendium of different ways one can do water effects in animation.

Despite the beauty the film finds in destruction, it never fully answers the question of what happens to love in a world that's sinking.

...a powerful, beautiful and original story.
January 21, 2020
This is the kind of film where viewers can let themselves flow with the film's emotion, or entirely ignore the action and just get lost in the beauty of the imagination. Either way, it's a luscious trip to take.

It may sometimes be a little uneven in its narrative flow, but its complex situations involve evocative imagery and moments of intense resonance.
January 21, 2020
A timekiller...not on a par with virtually anything the anime master Hiyao Miyazaki made, and it falls well short of the heart of "Your name."
January 21, 2020
[I]t's convoluted and rather tiring, but it thinks audaciously, and even those of us who have never warmed to animé's visual style should concede that Shinkai knows what he's doing: he has a knack for sunbeams and raindrops.

Vividly contemporary-not an archetypal fable, but rather a compelling yarn about young people trying to live and love in an often hostile world of grown-ups
January 20, 2020
Stunningly animated and trippily outré in its narrative choices, the film isn't quite as compelling as its predecessor, but its commitment to its own bleak story is admirably daring and more grown-up than its upbeat J-pop soundtrack initially suggests.
January 18, 2020
The characters' expressions and movements really pop - it's tough to imagine this story told in any other medium.
