Weathering with You (Japanese: 天気の子, Hepburn: Tenki no Ko,
lit. "Child of Weather") is a 2019 Japanese animated romantic fantasy
film written and directed by Makoto Shinkai. The film is set in Japan during a
period of exceptionally rainy weather and tells the story of a high-school boy
who runs away to Tokyo and befriends an orphan girl who has the ability to
manipulate the weather. The film was produced by CoMix Wave Films, Wakana
Okamura, Kinue Itō, and Story Inc., and the music was composed by Radwimps.
Weathering with You was released in Japan on July 19, 2019;
the previous day, a novel adaptation written by Shinkai—one of his original
works—was published. A manga adaptation illustrated by Watari Kubota was first
serialized in Kodansha's Afternoon on July 25 the same year. The film was
selected as the Japanese entry for Best International Feature Film at the 92nd
Academy Awards. It also received four Annie Award nominations including Best
Independent Animated Feature, which makes it the third anime film tying with
Spirited Away and Millennium Actress to have four nominations; the highest for
an anime film at the Annies.
