I'm interested in this movie because of shinkai's previous works, and I think considering his last movie's success, many people also feels that way, so it's very hard to not comparing shinkai's next work with "your name". I'll start with the animation and visualization in this anime, it's better than "your name", and it captures the metropolitan culture of tokyo's Japanese people very well, though i miss the depiction of japan traditional culture and rural area in this movie. About the music, they have similar aura with "your name", moving moments in the movie are captured brilliantly with the music. Storywise though, "your name" was a better love story than this movie, and "your name" made more sense than this movie. It is still a very good movie though, but I think it won't top "your name" success.. I hope shinkai will make many more good movie after this, and with this much of quality, I think many people would still want to watch his future projects.. I know I would.
