Weathering With You (Collector’s Edition) will be available November 17 from GKIDS and Shout! Factory.

The summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hodaka meets Hina on a busy street corner.
This bright and strong-willed girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky… Japan’s Official Submission for Best International Feature at the 92nd Academy Awards, and a Toronto International Film Festival Official Selection, this magical tale’s awe-inspiring beauty thrilled audiences when the film hit North American theaters in early 2020.

Digimon is one of those things that was way after my time. But, a generous portion of the readers seem to like it.

Does the Blu-ray add anything for a show that I’m not sure is animated at 2K?
