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.

The movie greatly justifies the notion ~ "Time waits for no one".
The girl who lept through time is a time traveling concept based movie which revloves around 3 friends makoto, koushki and chiyaki, and what happens in their life.. makoto is a careless girl who once stumbles up in the lab after being given to keep question papers and thus starts her time leap, she couldnt know first how she could predict what will happen today by travelling the "today" part by time leaping and when she faces the "today" part she was shocked as she could predict everything and turn it read more

(Some Spoilers!)
“The Girl Who Leapt Through Time” is a story about a young girl named Makoto Konno (beautifully voiced by Riisa Naka) who, entirely by accident, discovers she has the ability to literally leap back in time, allowing her to correct any mistakes she had made in the past. Initially, this power is used for simple things; getting up earlier for school, doing better on a test, abandoning a poor attempt at tempura, and avoiding an awkward confrontation with her friend, Chiaki. It isn’t long, however, before she realizes that abusing this power will inevitably lead to someone else having to take on her 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.

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.

Both are heart warming stories with sci-fi/ supernatural about a lively girl and her relationship with a boy. Both have a beautiful end.
