Weathering With You Gets Two Collector’s Edition!

Weathering With You (Blu-ray) - -

Original review can be found here.

It’s practically raining cats and dogs here in the Pacific Northwest, and the best way to cure the winter blues is to see Makoto Shinkai’s Weathering with You. This anime is about climate change and how how two unlikely teens find romance. Their togetherness shows that life does not have to be tough. Whether that’s with escaping their past or trying to forge an appropriate future for themselves in a quickly changing world of Tokyo, this movie certainly made waves when it premiered back in 2019.

Shout! Factory also recognizes the niche this anime has carved. If you missed out in picking up the earlier editions or were holding out for a better, comprehensive collector’s edition–it’s now here! There are two versions, a limited blu-ray steel book edition and limited 4K collector’s edition–which a rain bucket full of extras like a CD and mini art book. The following featurettes online are a tease of what’s available in this new set, along with the details of what else to expect.
