From Makoto Shinkai (Five Centimeters Per Second, Journey to Agartha) comes a love story with a twist.
When Takao, a young high school student who dreams of becoming a shoe designer, decides to skip school one day in favor of sketching in a rainy garden, he has no idea how much his life will change when he encounters Yukino. Older but perhaps not as much wiser, she seems adrift in the world. Despite the difference in their ages, they strike up an unusual relationship that unexpectedly continues and evolves, with random meetings in the same garden on each rainy day.
But the rainy season is coming to a close, and there are so many things still left unsaid and undone between them. Will there be time left for Takao to put his feelings into actions and words? Between the raindrops, between the calms in the storm, what will blossom?

The story here is kind of like a known classic film but in anime form. It is exceedingly well drawn and visually stunning.
I found it most likeable.
I'm shocked... This has to be Makoto Shinkai's most gorgeous film yet, especially with its visuals. It's fairly short, but worth every second, and one of the most simplest yet... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Mr. D. W. Brennan
A fantastic piece of animation and a quiet little story of friendship.Published 3 months ago by D. P. Flanagan
Beautiful animation, but a very boring story and bad dialog. I didn't connect with the characters at all and was bored pretty much through the whole film. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Strawberry Snail

If you've enjoyed any other works by Shinkai (mainly 5 Centimeters per Second) you should love this one too. It's beautifully animated and, whilst quite work, well directed.Published 6 months ago by Matthew Petch
