A review by retrophrenologist
Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami

reflective slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


Deeply bland and passive main character. An unpleasant relationship with nothing to redeem it presented as a romantic idyll.
