This will be the third climate battle in a 4-part series. Each battle features 1 fictional climate inspired by each of the 4 anime series I used for inspiration. Feel free to rate, and vote for the climate you would most enjoy/least hate living in! This climate battle consists of 4 climates with more frequent rainy days and higher rainfall totals for the climate type.

Spoiler
I used to make a ton of fictional climates when I was a teenager, but grew out of it during college. In 2014-2015 I watched 4 anime series my college friends recommended, and was inspired to make 4 sets of 4 fictional climates based on each anime. Thought I'd share them with this forum now.

Anime #1 is a sci-fi anime set in Tokyo during summer 2010, Anime #2 is a murder mystery anime set in 1980s rural Japan, Anime #3 is set in a post-apocalyptic fictional universe, and Anime #4 is based on a slice-of-life visual novel that I have no interest in playing and will not describe further. I'll let the Japanese pop culture enthusiasts guess what they are. NOTE: Climate #1 doesn't necessarily correspond to Anime #1, Climate #2 doesn't necessarily correspond to Anime #2, etc.



Rainy Climate #1: Night Market Luv Letter

Cloud and fog-prone coastal area on the east coast of a continent near a rugged mountain range. The climate experiences a slight rain shadow due to the coast being parallel to the prevailing onshore winds. Natural vegetation is temperate/subtropical cloud forest interspersed with grass meadows and wetlands.



Rainy Climate #2: Miteiru Dake De

Snowy, gloomy peninsula on the east coast of a temperate continent facing an icy marginal sea that freezes over for 2 months. Natural vegetation is warmth-loving taiga with hardy bamboo thickets and deciduous woodland in some areas.



Rainy Climate #3: Tuturu

Low-lying quasi-coastal subtropical plain prone to foehn winds from nearby mountains during late summer. Despite receiving heavier and more consistent rain than most Mediterranean climates, this region often goes months without any significant precipitation during the hot summers. Natural vegetation is laurel forest on the coastal strip, with shrub thickets on cliffs and more exposed areas.



Rainy Climate #4: Transhumanity

Uninhabited cliff top 200-300 m above sea level on a small subtropical volcanic island in the middle of a vast ocean. The station itself is on the windward side of the island, close to where the cliff drops off into the ocean. Natural vegetation consists of wet meadows and krummholz shrubs.

I'm going with Transhumanity due to the consistently of the rain and temperatures being half decent, even if there's a bit too much rainy days.

In a close second is Night Market Luv Letter. The only problem with this place is that the rain is too concentrated in the summer as oppose to the winter.

I'm a big disappointed people aren't fans of Tuturu. I thought a wet Mediterranean climate would be better received on here.

Tuturu is the best by far. Mediterranean paradise! Pretty close to my dream climate, just a tad too warm, but likely deserving of an ultra-rare A+ grade.

Tuturu is probably milder (warmer) and wetter than would be theoretically possible for a Mediterranean climate on Planet Earth, especially considering how sunny it is. Even most Med climates with cooler winters/shoulder seasons and more humid summers don’t get this much rain, unless they’re on the windward side of nearby mountain ranges.

I'm fan of Tuturu, but I don't get what this climate has to do with our beloved Orihime.
