From the award-winning director and author Makoto Shinkai comes the comic adaptation of his most recent work. A modern day love store built on forbidden romance, Shinkai weaves another heartfelt tale that should appeal to his large existing fan-base while winning over more readers for years to come.
Two lonely souls meet under the shade of a garden gazebo during a downpour. They are both playing hooky, but in the case of Takao he is cutting school; while Yukari should be at work. While this encounter was random, it will not be their last, as their lives will become intertwined with the rain, beer, school and shoe cobbling. Words are not often necessary, but in this case just a few words can make a difference in the hearts of many.
