Awww, now this was really sweet to read. I plan on watching Weathering With You when it comes out. I did like Your Name, but I didn't feel it to be the masterpiece everyone was making it out to be, and personally, I felt some jokes it had either didn't land or overstayed their welcome (Like the incessant boob gags).

When the time came to start working on his next film in earnest, Shinkai's thoughts turned to climate change. "People say that humans are destroying nature for the sake of their own conveniences, and I agree with that," he said. "And yet I'm the kind of person who doesn't hesitate to turn on the air conditioning in my room when it's hot. Climate change is a large-scale phenomenon with an unimaginable scope, but there's not much a person can do about it on an individual level. Even so, my actions as a single person have a definite effect on the environment. It may feel like something that's out of your realm of responsibility, but it absolutely isn't. I made the film while thinking about how to deal with that problem through the framework of entertainment."

Nice quote for Makoto Shinkai on regarding to climate change but I wonder if Donald Trump & that current Brazilian president who are still struggling to put the fire out in the Amazon rainforest will gonna watch his latest film. Rolling Eyes
