This will be the final 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 relatively high sunshine levels for their respective climate type or precipitation regime. (They also have relatively uniform seasonal temperature lag for some reason.)

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.



Sunny Climate #1: Caged Bird Sings

Located in a subtropical valley flanked by low mountain ranges on a relatively maritime continent. The nearby coast experiences frequent warm-season coastal fog that advances inland through a water gap at night, resulting in very stable nighttime low temperatures. Natural vegetation is transitional between coniferous forest, oak savanna, and chaparral.



Sunny Climate #2: Another Heaven

Coastal highland 1000 to 1500 m above sea level on the equatorward edge of a large desert. The immediate coastal area is subject to a seasonal monsoon that generates coastal upwelling and fog during the "rainy" season. Natural vegetation is dry scrub interspersed with monsoon cloud forest.



Sunny Climate #3: Shiratama Anmitsu

Temperate east-coast plain that experiences a monsoon, located several hundred kilometers south of a mountain range that*shields the region from polar intrusions. The location is on a medium-sized, deep inland lake, so there is some seasonal lag despite not being on the coast. Natural vegetation is a conifer-evergreen broadleaf forest mosaic similar to the US Upper South.



Sunny Climate #4: Batsu Game

Subtropical coastal strip on an inland sea prone to thunderstorms during shoulder seasons due to a shifting jet stream and colliding continental and maritime air masses. Natural vegetation includes palm trees everywhere and drought-tolerant, heat-loving woodland-savanna off the beach

Definitely not #2. I would say #4 since it’s most prone to the kind of thunderstorms that can spawn tornados (it’s loosely based on East Texas), although you could also make an argument for #1 (NorCal inspired) or #3 (loosely based on East China + the US Upper South).
