writing the film's novelization. It is set to be released from Kadokawa Bunko on July 18, 2019, one
day before the film's theatrical release in Japan.
In the tweet, he is asking his fans what kind of questions they want to ask for the novel's afterword.
"I finally finished writing 'Weathering With You The Novel'! I think it has become something worth reading.
I would be glad if you are excited about it. I want to write a short afterword, so is there anything you want
to read or ask? If any, it would really help me to know your opinion-!"
