They are by the same creator and they have the same air and style in amine and the story plot. A boy, a girl falling in love and meeting each other through supernatural phenomenons. They have adventures together and uncover their futures. I recommend them to people who love wholesome short beautiful animes that make you feel the feels.

Another beautiful Shinkai movie, with a supernatural romance to warm your heart. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Sailnir Sailnir says...

Both are romances with supernatural elements. Though I would say your name is even better.

Want some incredible animation? Well here it is. The best of 2d animation today comes from Shinkai.

These titles are both gorgeous movies directed by Makoto Shinkai and produced by CoMix Wave Films. Hell, even the main characters in Your Name. are featured in Weathering With You. These two films both tell a similar story of romance, tragedy, and of overcoming tragedy. Both films make use of a supernatural element that affects the two main characters in a way that changes their lives in a highly emotional and interesting way. Anyone of any age will find something to appreciate in both of these fantastic movies.

ShiroHatake ShiroHatake says...

Both movies have the same director so they have a similar feel. Both are romance movies about teenagers that exist in a world that has a fantastical element that brings the main characters together. The soundtrack for both movies is amazing, and both have the same style of animation that looks so realistic and beautiful. 

Sybille Sybille says...

For starters, they're both directed by Makoto Shinkai and that's a lot to say; having the same director means they are likely to have the same art style and theme, certainly they do. They're about two characters that fall in love but some sort of magical forces threat to keep them apart. Also they both explore Japanese culture and traditions through top tier animation.

Note: If u watched Your Name first, there may be some cameos that you'll like.

Knikkee Knikkee says...

The two main characters have similaries and both storiese have mythological themes that are coming true for what seems like only the main characters.

sameemster sameemster says...

they both have beautifully intricate storyboards and animations. the movies are just so cinimatically breathtaking, definitely worth the watch.

godzifan2019 godzifan2019 says...

Because this movie brings you a universe full of magic and love, it is without a doubt spectacular and beautiful😍😢

Neptune001 Neptune001 says...

They are by same writer and director. Same animation style and both occur in same universe with cameo

Kaiten456 Kaiten456 says...

Both have stunning visuals and immersive sound giving an encapsulating experience for the viewer. Both have supernatural tropes and what feels like borderline romance, almost to the bound of pseudo-romance. Both show protagonists in unfamiliar places and both are coming of age stories. I recommend them bidirectionally as they're written by the same person (Makoto Shinkai), animated by the same company (CoMix Wave Films) and the music is done by the same group (RADWIMPS) and both stories are just spectacular and again, very good visuals and sound.

NewToAnime NewToAnime says...

A similar anime made by the same director. Both are really good movies, if you like one of them you are likely going to like the other aswell.

keywiha keywiha says...

Both of these films are directed by Makoto Shinkai. They both have the same breathtaking visuals. Both emotional, romance anime with supernatural elements to it.

Pokeswap Pokeswap says...

First, they are both love stories with adversity the main couple has to overcome. Their endings may be different, but they both have many high points in the lovely story. 

Anither reason I recommend them is because they both play out using a similar plot device: framing. The framing sets up the story, even though it was done differently in both instances. It helps to bring everything to a close, whatever that may be. 

both movies also conveyed deep characters so weren't like run of the mill anime protagonists. They had problems and issues as well as character flaws, adding depth. 

KiyotakaA KiyotakaA says...

Both have a heart quenching story but "I want to eat your pancreas" has a really sad ending rather than the happy ending of "weathering with you".

If you liked "weathering with you" you'll like it but even if you didn't liked the first one "that much" you'll definitely like it.

It was the first anime i watched so it hasa special place in my heart.

Everyone have different tastes, i know. But if you don't like it i would say you are a cold hearted person.

alp2va alp2va says...

I can't talk about this recommendation without spoiling either movie, but just know that the plot and emotions you'll feel when watching are very similar between the two. Also, both are just beautifully animated.

ShiroHatake ShiroHatake says...

Both anime follow a budding romance of high school-aged kids.  Both stories have a similar style of animation that is very beautiful and realistic. Both female main characters have struggles that the male main characters want to protect them from and help them through, which causes tension in the plot. Both will make you cry. 



The story is set in Tokyo, after bubbles that broke the laws of gravity rained down upon the world. Cut off from the outside world, Tokyo has become a playground for a group of young people who have lost their families, acting as a battlefield for parkour team battles as they leap from building to building. Hibiki, a young ace known for his dangerous play style, makes a reckless move one day and plummets into the gravity-bending sea. His life is saved by Uta, a girl with mysterious powers. The pair then hear a unique sound audible only to them. Why did Uta appear before Hibiki? Their encounter leads to a revelation that will change the world.

If you are looking for a cute romance that dives into some deeper themes and has a little more substance to the plot then you cannot do much better than Fruits Basket. This story fleshes out all the characters and is a wonderfully sweet story that allows you to empathize much more with the characters.

Both anime movies seem to focus less on plot and more on characters and animation, incorporating fantasical elements into modern society without much explanation

Nocturnalgloria Nocturnalgloria says...

At first glance these two anime seem very different but they have quite a lot in common: Both focus on the promise and hardships that Tokyo presents to those who are born there as well as to those who want to see in the big city the chance of remaking themselves. The seedier underbelly of Tokyo forms the background of much of the action but so does the unique beauty of this sprawling metropolis. 

But more importantly, they have an approach to the supernatural- and its interaction with urban legends- that mingles flawlessly with the daily life. Be it weather manipulation in Weathering With You or headless riders in Durarara!!, these elements are incorporated into such mundane activities as part-time jobs and courier services.
