Weathering with You

Weathering with You ★★★★★

Watched this again! Holds up even better second time. Honestly, despite also being a love story with fantastical elements, this is very different to Your Name. The main characters aren't ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, but law-defying confused youth just looking for companionship. The ending makes more sense with a rewatch - moreso about overcoming adversity than anything else.

For all the beautiful weather and food, the best moments were the most grounded. The bittersweet night at the hotel. The cycle of trying and failing to find a job. Seeing the city through questionable journalism.
