The Blu-ray/DVD for Weathering with You releases in Japan on May 27
Just when you thought Kotaro Daigo’s and Nana Mori’s award-winning voices were great as Hodaka and Hina from Weathering with You, the official YouTube channel for Toho Animation released an insight into the production of the anime film with director Makoto Shinkai lending his voice to the animated storyboards. He made his voice just a little higher when voicing Hina.
The video shows the scene at Hina’s house where Hodaka and her buy a website for their services while cooking the potato chip fried rice (that Lawson’s released in Japan as the film was running in theatres). The storyboards were drawn by Shinkai during the production of the anime film.
Personally, I think Shinkai should lend his voice to more anime, maybe his next film?
If you want to see more insights into the production of Weathering with You, the 4K UHD Blu-ray collector's edition (pictured above) will come with multiple documentaries and follow the production of the film from storyboard to screen. The Blu-ray/DVD versions of Weathering with You release in Japan on May 27 and includes both English and Chinese subtitles.
