Contents ε=ε=┏( >_<)┛
Takao as the main character is a high school student who has a dream to be a shoemaker. Every day he thinks about a new design of shoes. This season is the rainy season in Japan. One rainy day, while he is making a design of new shoes at the garden without showing up to his first class, he meets this lady named, Yukino who is drinking beer. He asks her if they had met each other somewhere but she says no. She also gives him an old poem and left that place. The old poem is Narukami no Sukoshi Toyomite Sashi kumori Ame mo Furanu ka Kimi wo Todomenu which means The sound of thunder is slightly making a sound , wonder it gets cloudy and starts raining. If so, it would hold you back to go home.
This is how he starts to meet her at this garden only on the days it is raining. As they meet each other, their relationship gets closer and closer. He talks about his dream to be a shoemaker in his future to her, she has a taste disorder but she starts to feel the taste of his Bento(lunch) that he makes. They enjoy their own world at this garden with rain.
One day, Yukino gives Takao a book of how to make shoes and Takao decides to make shoes for her but unfortunately, the rainy season ends. This will not let them meet much anymore and the story goes……
Takao Akizuki(left) – Main character. He is a freshman in high school who wants to be a shoemaker in his future. He is the type of person who is mature with his age.
Yukari Yukino(right) – Main character. She is an enigmatic lady who Takao meets at the garden. She is 27 years old and seems like she is tired of her life. This is my opinion!

What we have to talk about first is definitely the picture right? (・ω・★） As you see a couple of pictures above, what do you think?? Without mentioning this, it is more than amazing! This anime takes advantage of the graphics and the story gets along with it! It describes the atmosphere great, especially the rain. It will make you feel the rain is beautiful, even though you don’t like rain! It is so detailed by the graphics so you might be able to feel the realistic scenes. You will keep your mouth open all the way until the end. Lol, It might happen or maybe not but what I am saying is you will be easily drawn into this movie because of the picture.
Not only the graphics but also the sound is good. They match each other and make a nice harmony of the world. The graphics and the sound express the quiet scenes which you feel like it is real if you close your eyes.
This anime movie is to feel the impression of the atmosphere and the fantastic situation that can happen in real life. They meet each other only when it is a rainy day but as they know each other, it will show you that they are living in the real world and bring them back to what they have to face in their life. As if they wake up from their dream and have to go back to their reality. I felt like I wanted to see them in the garden forever and say that please do not stop, rainy season for them! That is what I thought but if the story didn’t move at all, you know that would suck but I wished I could listen to the sound of circumstances more to get me to feel like I am under the rain too. I think they successfully could make the atmosphere with sound and graphic. That created the each scene to make me feel like I am in an illusion!
This movie is only 45 minutes but it is summarized well in this short time. It is quiet from first to the end but the feelings of those two characters are described excellently. It is quiet but beautiful and it is quiet but emotional! Those parts will not bore you until the end. I bet you will be into this movie before you notice. ﾟ*｡(･∀･)ﾟ*｡ I want you to keep on checking the distance of them at the garden. As they get to know each other, their distance gets closer and closer. Without talking much from their mouth, you can tell that their relationship gets closer! I thought it was a great way to visualize that way but it is a small thing so you might miss what I am talking about! But I liked how they visualized that way and the description of it. It is detailed but I like to watch that way on this movie!
Have you felt the feeling like you want to get to know somebody without caring about a status? This movie will remind you of that romantic feeling that is pure and fresh but the status bothers. Takao is a young teenager who is immature and Yukino is 27 years old who is mature. This ironical relativity was described perfectly in this movie. If you are an adult and watch this, you would say oh, kid get it what she means! If you are kids or teenagers and watch this, you would say why is she acting like that! Probably, it is fun to watch this anime with your kids or your parents and compare how you guys feel with each other. It would be an interesting conversation!
Anyway, It is a good movie that I can recommend to all people to watch! If you haven’t watched this movie yet, you should think of it as the next movie to watch! ヽ(・∀・)人(・∀・)ﾉ
Thank you for reading my post! I hope this website is the unrealistic place like the garden where they enjoy their time! But don’t come here only rainy season! Come here this website often please! (★≧▽^))★☆
