As if heaven itself knew I’d watch the film, the day I went to see the film, it was a downpour, and when the film ended, it had stopped raining. Quite the coincidence, eh?
Tenki no Ko (literally, “Weather Child”), known in English as “Weathering With You” (which, as you may note, “weathering” is a word rarely used in English these days) is a story about a “sunshine girl” and a boy who moves to Tokyo. The boy goes to work for a man and his niece who write a mystique sensationalist magazine that looks into astrology and anything weird that is said to be occurring around Tokyo – you know, the kinds of bogus-info-filled magazines you see in the checkout line at Walmart. The city experiences lots of rain, and most people around town would like it to stop. Contrary to what the previews suggest, it’s NOT a story about escaping a mafia.
