TEHRAN – “Weathering With You” by Makoto Shinkai has been published in Persian by Peydayesh.

Parastu Purgilani is the translator of the novel first published in 2019.

Longing to escape his island home, a boy named Hodaka runs away during his first summer of high school to find a new life in Tokyo. 

As rain falls for days on end and Hodaka struggles to adjust, he meets a girl named Hina who holds a mysterious power: With a single prayer, she can part the clouds and bring back the sun. 

But her power comes at a price, and as the weather spirals further and further out of control, they must choose what future they truly want for themselves.

Written concurrently with the production of the 2019 film “Weathering With You”, this novel comes straight from director Makoto Shinkai.

The Japanese animated romantic fantasy film was produced by CoMix Wave Films and distributed by Toho.

Shinkai began his career as a video game animator with Nihon Falcom in 1996, and gained recognition as a filmmaker with the release of the original video animation (OVA) “She and Her Cat” in 1999. 

Beginning his longstanding association with CoMix Wave Films, Shinkai then released the science-fiction OVA “Voices of a Distant Star” in 2002, and followed this with his debut feature film “The Place Promised in Our Early Days” in 2004.
