After the monumental success of 2016’s acclaimed anime-feature ‘Your Name,’ Makoto Shinkai is back. All eyes have been peeling to witness his new work. Which is why the first look for Weathering With You (Tenki no ko) and the trailer have been the most anticipated. The film has already released in Japan with humongous success rate, reclaiming Shinkai’s confidence after a nervous spill of following Your Name. People have loved his newest work and the TIFF 2019 premiere will ensure that this one gets wider acclaim as well.
The new images and trailer for Weathering For You have been released by TIFF. Most of the team behind Your Name returns as Masayoshi Tanaka will be designing the characters. Atsushi Tamura and Hiroshi Takiguchi will serve as animation directors and art directors respectively.

The trailer for Weathering For You finds the two leads in an intense quagmire of blood and tears. As Shinkai’s films are indicative for their emotional third act’s, this looks like indicative roller coaster ride. GKIDS, the producers of the film have also confirmed that an English language version is looking for a release window in 2020 (though no one wants to watch the translated version).
The film stars Kotaro Daigo as Hodaka Morishima and Nana Mori as Hina Amano. Co-starring Tsubasa Honda, Shun Oguri, Sakura Kiryuu, Sei Hiraizumi, Yuki Kaji, and Chieko Baisho in currently unconfirmed roles. The film will be holding its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this September.
