Synopsis

The power to travel through time... It can be used for the good of humanity, or just selfishly abused. While many may fantasize about obtaining such a power, it has become nothing less than reality for otherwise-normal schoolgirl Konno Makoto.

After a fated event, her life takes a turn for the extraordinary. Though she initially uses her power to literally "leap" into the past and change little things in order to make her life easier, she soon has to face the fact that changing the past can have drastic consequences.

Whereas I had watched the movie because of its high recommendations, I was disappointed to find out that Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo is very lacking in many regards, in my opinion.

The story wasn't very new (character finds out can travel back or forth in time, uses it, abuses it, and learns - the end), but I did enjoy the approach taken by <i>this</i> particular anime. Featuring some interesting plot developments and approaches to how the time travel was "invoked," it did feel fairly fresh. However, other than that, most of the development in the film was mainly comic relief and I didn't feel like I read more

"Time waits for no one."

If you haven't ever wanted to go back in time and change something in your life, then congratulations, because you must have one of the most flawless and happiest lives ever. Konno Makoto is not one of those kinds of people. On a particularly bad day full of sleeping late, failing a test, and getting a guy thrown on top of her, Makoto wanders into a science lab after she thought she heard someone in there. After falling and having a "trippy" experience, Makoto goes about the rest of her unlucky day only to have a near death experience. But she read more

If you suddenly gained the ability to quite literally leap through time, what would you use it for? The sheer fun of it? Getting better grades? Or something else? What if you merely wanted the present to continue; to still live out those memorable days with your friends, playing around and having fun; rejecting the future and not wanting things to change? In Toki wo Kakeru Shojo, a girl is presented with this exact possibility. She suddenly finds out that she has been granted the ability to travel through time, and uses this ability for the purposes mentioned above. At first she tries to correct read more

Hands down the best movie (animated or otherwise) I've seen in at least five years.

Although the character art is simple, I love it <i>because</i> it is simple and clean. The backgrounds, environment, and special effects are a different thing entirely. They are rendered in such gloriously realistic detail. The landscapes, the classrooms, the streets -- I have never seen such detail in an animated film. It makes things like Beowulf and Final Fantasy: Advent Children look really silly.

The movie also has such beautiful sound. The effects are perfect and clear. This is topped off by one of the most read more

Anime: Steins;Gate
Both series deal with unique takes on time travel and the consequences of changing the past. They both have elements of comedy and romance and both surprised me as they wouldn't normally be shows/movies I'm drawn to.

Anime: Byousoku 5 Centimeter
A great love story is what brings Toki wo and 5 cm together. Each involves love between people who are not yet adult but are not children, platonic love, and pure feelings between pure souls. You'll enjoy the romantic atmosphere that permeates through both titles.

good drawing/animation, unique story, similar main girl character

Anime: Mimi wo Sumaseba
When I first saw Girl Who Leaped Through Time, I thought about Wisper of the Heart. The plot is compleetly different, but their romantic mood and slice-of-life topics are very close.

Anime: Hotarubi no Mori e
Both are heart warming stories with sci-fi/ supernatural about a lively girl and her relationship with a boy. Both have a beautiful end.

Anime: Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki
While watching Ame to Yuki i had the same lighthearted and yet bittersweet feeling that gave me Toki wo Kakeru Shojo.
Not only they share a very similar artstyle, which is very pleasant, but also both movies share a strong supernatural theme who quickly become the main focus of the story.
Both plot are told gently and can make you experience some nice time to spend watching.
Also, both series share a very important element that they show in their own way: love trascend time and any kind of race.

Absolutly recommended both titles! Because they both might have the power to let you  read more
