After Makoto Shinkai's massive blockbuster hit "Your Name" in 2016, he comes up with a new film that is very characteristic of what I would say his surrealist take on storytelling.
Not that I didn't think "Your Name" was a good movie, it was, but something had always nagged at me, something that didn't seem to draw me into the movie as much, an indescribable feeling of reverse catharsis. And it seems that this new film, "Weathering With You", would follow in the same vein as his last one.
But as always, the animation is a visual spectacle and makes me reminisce about the first few anime films I've watched, which were from Ghibli. With the success of "Your Name", much is expected from the new film though with the trailer alone, it definitely has good prospects.
