Ever since the death of his grandfather, Yasuji, Kousuke Kumagaya has grown distant from his close friend, Natsume Tonai. Having grown up together like siblings in the same apartment building, the two now find themselves at odds with one another due to Natsume's inability to let go of the past. This rift is further exacerbated by the news that their former complex will soon be demolished.

Hearing about a ghost that is supposedly haunting the old complex, Kousuke's friends drag him into the demolition site to look around. When Kousuke finds that Natsume is also there, they get into an argument over an old camera that once belonged to Yasuji. This results in Natsume running off with it, but just as she is about to fall off the rooftop, a torrential downpour envelops the entire building, flooding the ground around it.

The young children now find themselves drifting at sea with the apartment building acting as their ship. Unable to communicate with the rest of the world, Natsume and Kousuke must reconcile their differences if they want to stand a chance at finding their way home.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


The apartment complex where the film is set is modeled after the original designs of the Hibarigaoka Danchi, which was one of the largest housing complexes in Tokyo during its time.

I watched this not knowing the context of the film but after finding out I had to rewatch it, my eyes were opened to a form of character writing I was not aware of. The main 5 characters are well writen but the 6th charecter is the one that sold it for me he was well thought of.

This film is great to watch with someone or if your feeling a bit down great by yourself (not to discourage anyone in a good mood).

The animation on the film was incredible and I did not regret a single minute of it. A few scenes throughout ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime movie is an unknown Netflix movie and it's normal that it's not well known because when you look at other anime movies, you feel the fluidity, but when it comes to the movie called Ame wo Tsugeru Hyouryuu Danchi, we encounter an extremely boring movie, but I must say that sometimes it is also beautiful. The reason for this in general, I will explain in the review immediately.

The story of the movie is generally interesting and I can say that it handles it well. Whether it is the character development of the children and with a good duration, of course it can be ...

Beautiful visuals wasted on a dopey concept.

The trailer hooked me, with it's lush animation and a somewhat intriguing idea about an apartment complex floating in the sea. Seemed like it would be a good time, given that I'm a bit of a fan of single location settings.

Well, after watching it, I felt cheated. Let's briefly dismantle this thing, shall we? Honestly, there's nothing particularly special about this movie that warrants an unnecessarily bloated two-hour runtime. The supernatural elements are dense, and awkwardly written. The main characters yell at each other for a good portion, constantly being absolute savages to one another. Seriously, these KIDS want ...
