Weathering With You ranks in Japan again as some Japanese theaters reopened this past weekend. Weathering With You released in Japan last year in the month of July and became the 7th highest grossing movie in Japan. And now, it is all set to lit fire in the theaters once again.
The world-spread disease (corona virus) is taking its toll on each and every aspect of human life. Consequently, anime is just another causality. Well, we hope most of us make it out of the current pandemic safely without falling victim to it. Luckily, Japan’s film exhibition business, which shut down in April due to the current coronavirus outbreak, has begun to reopen slowly. Japan is the world’s third largest cinema box office market behind North America and China.
Japanese theaters started reopening from Monday and nearly 100 theaters reopened this past weekend. Many theaters remain closed in Tokyo, Osaka, Kanagawa, and other metropolitan cities due to coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) pandemic.
The Makoto Shinkai written and directed anime movie Weathering With You or Tenki No Ko which hit the Japanese theaters on July 19, 2019. It became the 7th highest grossing domestic movie in Japan and was on a continuous up-climbing journey. But, this global pandemic Coronavirus (COVID-19) caused the theater in Japan, as well as in other major countries, to shut down and avoid mass gathering.
But recently, 100 theaters reopened in some cities of Japan, and the movie “Weathering With You: Tenki No Ko” ranks in Japan again.
The film “Weathering With You” currently ranks at #2
Weathering With You is the 2019 Makoto Shinkai directed movie which created a huge amount of hype, specially in India, due to the impact that the 2016’s Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa) left on the audience. It was the foundation of the Shinkai fanbase that we see around the globe today. Weathering With You more or less lived up to the expectations of the viewers, and made everyone laugh and cry at the same time with the peculiar adventure of Hodaka and Hina as the weather goes crazy!
GKIDS, the company responsible for the western release of Weathering With You describes the movie as:
“The summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hodaka meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strong-willed girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky…”
