Bond16’s review published on Letterboxd:
You know how sometimes during horror movies people scream stuff at the screen like "Don't go in there!". That was me during this movie, only I was screaming "Turn around and go after her!". Shinkai knows how to get to my deepest feelings like no other director out there. Besides the stunning animation, great soundtrack and likable characters this is just a fantastic love story. I have no girlfriend at the moment, but I might just use this movie as a test to check if a girl is compatible with me because tbh. I can't imagine being together with a person who dislikes this movie. By now I guess you can understand how much this film touched me.
