Makoto Shinkai’s ‘Weathering With You’ To Premiere In The Philippines This August 28

Makoto Shinkai, the director behind the smash hit Kimi No Na Wa (Your Name), has just had his sixth anime feature released in Japan. His newest film, Weathering With You, actually surpassed Your Name‘s first-day box office records in Japan last July 19. This has only added to the excitement of fans waiting to see if this newest project lives up to the fame of its predecessor.
