This article will introduce some of best places to watch Weathering With You online, as well as where you can buy the dvd or blu-ray.

Where to Watch Weathering With You Online (Tenki No Ko)

1. Netflix

Many of you might not know that you can watch Tenki No Ko directly on Netflix.

Sometimes Weathering With You may not be available on Netflix in your country. To get around this, you simply can fake a country IP address using a VPN to access that country’s anime library. As of the writing of this article, we’ve verified that Australia has this anime in their Netflix library.

How to Watch Weathering With You on Netflix via VPN

This method works on both desktop PCs and mobile phones or tablets.

  1. Purchase (or start a free trial) of a VPN. I can confirm that NordVPN works for this purpose.
  2. In the settings, choose Australia as your location.
  3. Fire up the VPN and wait for it to do its magic
  4. Once you’re connected, navigate to Netflix (browser or app)
  5. Search “Weathering With You” in the Netflix search bar and you should see the anime pop up.

Enjoy! Please note that if your Netflix library doesn’t update to reflect the country you selected in your VPN, you may have to clear the Netflix cache first and try again.

To to do this on mobile, go to settings -> apps -> Netflix -> clear cache. To do this on PC, you have to clear the cache in your web browser.

I’ve had no trouble using this method and I still use NordVPN to watch anime from various Netflix country libraries daily.
