■ Details of "Weathering with You"

Teaser poster_B1_resubmission_outline

"I wanted to go into that light." Summer in his first year of high school. Hodaka runs away from home on a remote island and comes to Tokyo. However, he soon finds himself in financial difficulty, and after many lonely days, he finally finds a job as a writer for a suspicious occult magazine. As if to suggest what lies ahead for him, the rain continues to fall day after day. Meanwhile, in a corner of the thronging city, Hodaka meets a girl. Hina is a girl who lives cheerfully and resiliently with her younger brother, despite her own circumstances. She has a mysterious power. "Hey, it's going to clear up now." Little by little, the rain stops, and the streets begin to shine beautifully. It is the power to clear the sky just by praying.
