Walking about the East Village neighborhood in NYC, I spotted an ad for Makoto Shinkai’s new movie Weathering With You!
I was surprised and delighted, as it is rare to see anime out in the wild of NYC without stopping by Kinokuniya or Bookoff. The ad is posted on Link NYC machines, essentially digital phone booths placed around the city.
If you don’t know Makoto Shinkai, he is a famous anime movie director known for creating hits such as Kimi No Na Wa, 5cm Per Second and more. If you haven’t seen any of his movies I recommend going to see Weathering With You as it has been getting rave reviews so far. You can stream his last movie Kimi No Na Wa online here.
Weathering With You will be officially released this week in the U.S. on January 17th so make sure to look out for it in theaters! You can see the trailer for the movie here. Are you planning to watch the movie? And hopefully I can let you know my thoughts after I see it as well 😉
