VehrkaS7’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was a film that unfortunately many compared to your name and didn’t like it as much which is a shame. Weathering with you is far better structured story wise but does suffer from a pacing issue just like Your Name. As per usual with Shinkai films, its the soundtrack and score that always stand out and are what the emotional scenes heavily rely on. Weathering with you is probably my favorite film by Makoto Shinkai and probably his best after his success with garden of words and Your Name.
8/10 Shinkai’s best work yet.
