On the eve of a junior high school's cultural festival, Typhoon No. 8 slowly approaches the isolated Okinawan town of Naha. A mysterious girl wearing a strange necklace suddenly appears alongside the storm, catching Shuuichi Azuma off guard.

After getting into a fight with his best friend Kenta Saijou over his decision to quit the baseball team, Azuma notices the same girl standing atop an electrical tower when lightning strikes, cutting power to the school and causing her to tumble down below. Unwilling to stay in the same room as Saijou, Azuma runs off to rescue the strange girl as the storm intensifies.

There is a story but its so short there no point on me talking about it ,the synopsis itself tells u most of what's going on.

-Its visual appeal was really good ,i enjoyed the animation thoroughly.
-The sounds, ost's and what ...

Mixed Feelings
A sketched taifuu, that’s it.
My main feel after watching it ? Incomplete. It’s like seeing a sketch before the final painting.

• Story : 6/10 •

It feels really unfinished, there is really too much big action and issues with not enough content and explanations.
It's like "Hello here's all my ideas, then bye!".
There, an attempt to a beautiful friendship between two boys passionate seeing their first fight.
There, a mysterious (naked) beautiful girl
There, an attempt to big deep world-crushing quest

Oh look, it seems I’ve finally found the origin of these terribly explained, water/weather-themed, sci-fi, romance, amalgamation anime movies.

Now, let me lead with a question:
Name for me a movie where a teenage girl possessing some form of vaguely explained water/weather manipulation abilities meets a boy who somehow helps to resolve the issue all while growing a romantic attachment to her. The animation in said film is absolutely breathtaking, a clear attempt to distract from the fact the narrative is disjointed and illogical, while explanations are skipped over or just downright nonexistent. Maybe if the director is feeling ‘creative’, they’ll swap the genders around or change ...
