Publisher Description

In this anime masterpiece, Makoto Shinkai brings us the story of two lonely souls who meet under a gazebo in the rain. They are both playing truant from their otherwise average lives; Takao, an aspiring shoemaker and school student, is cutting school, while Yukari should be at work as a student teacher. They shelter together and find themselves bonding, but seemingly their love can never be. However, their brief encounter will not be their last, as gradually their lives begin to intertwine.
