Makoto Konno is in her last year of high school, but is having a hard time deciding what to do with her future. In between enduring the pressure of her teachers and killing time with her best friends, Makoto's life suddenly changes when she accidentally discovers that she is capable of literally leaping through time.

Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo follows Makoto as she plays around with her newfound power. However, she soon learns the hard way that every choice has a consequence, and time is a lot more complicated than it may seem.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Toki wo Kakeru Shojo is a juvenile novel written by Tsutsui Yasutaka. It became TV drama, movie, and manga several times. However, this movie is its first anime adaptation. The main character, Konno Makoto, is brighter and more easygoing than any other characters in movie or TV drama made before. At once she knows she acquires the power of "time leap." She uses it without hesitation to satisfy her own desire.

In 2006, the film won the Best Animated Film in the Sitges Film Festival. In 2007, it won the Animation of the Year during the Japan Academy Prize. During the Tokyo Anime Awards, it won the Animation of the Year and the Best Original Story/Work. The staff that worked for the film won the Director Award, the Script-writing Award, the Achievement in Art Direction, and the Character Design Award. The movie also won the Animation Grand Award, given to the year's most entertaining animated film, at the prestigious sixty-first Annual Mainichi Film Awards. It received the Grand Prize in the animation division at the 2006 Japan Media Arts Festival. The film won the Special Distinction for Feature Film at France's thirty-first Annecy International Animated Film Festival on June 16, 2007. It also won the Feature Film Award in the 11th Animation Kobe Awards in 2006.

After first Coming Across this Movie some years ago it never really struck a chord with me until I rewatched it
''The Girl who Leapt Through Time'' is an anime I still enjoy because of its simple message.
Truly time waits for no one, and Life moves on you must never take for granted what you have because you will never truly appreciate it until its gone. On my rewatch I noticed little details that I had missed earlier. I also wandered how my perception to the movie would have changed. Three Years may not seem like a long time, but I have changed a lot ...

Mixed Feelings
Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo (or, "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" for the English-speakers) is one of Mamoru Hosoda's most recognized works, and not for nothing, either. Despite the issues the film has (and I'm going to be as blunt about it as I need to), the strengths it possesses are almost enough to disregard all of that. Almost.

The first issue that I can bring to attention is the animation. In a lot of shots characters and surfaces lack detail. This wouldn't be an issue if it was a matter of backgrounds (not everyone is Mappa, and thank God for it), but it's especially ...

No matter what, the background music makes it unbearable to watch. Even if it was the greatest anime of all time I couldn't watch it because of the background music. Besides the music, its characters' drawing is very basic and awful. They don't even have shadows on them. No art whatsoever. The story had a great potential but they ruined it.
It is filled with tons of uninteresting regular daily life of the characters and most of the time nothing happens.
There are lots of slow paced anime that are really interesting. But this one is not one of them, there is not much to like. ...
