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.
Whisper of the Heart, like Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo, has an easygoing, romantic feel to it. The animation style is also similar. However, their plots are vastly different.
Both great movies about young love and being able to let go.
Both films are heartwarming tales about teenage life, love and finiding one's self.
The main characters have a bit similarity and both the movies make you feel calm and happy. They both are realistic and have light, intense romance. If you liked this movie you will surely love Toki Wo Kakeru Shoujo too!
Both are heart-warming slice of life stories including romances. They're both very very good including school girls being weird and some drama and comedy.
I couldn't stop thinking about Whisper of the Heart throughout the entire movie of Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo. Toki wo~ is not done by Miyazaki, but its still some pretty great art. The story lines and characters are not extremely similar in the two movies, but Chizuku resembles Makoto quite a bit in looks and in temperament. I think if you liked Whisper of the Heart, you will LOVE Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo.
Both are slice of life, though The Girl Who Leapt Thru Time has much more fiction, they have similarities and I found I enjoyed them both. (Whisper of the Heart is so much more amazing in every way though).
If you enjoyed the atmosphere and feeling of one of these animes then you’ll for sure like the other. The story itself is not similar but the romance for sure. Both show the love between two teens in a very cute and innocent way, yet describe a lot of deep problems that the main characters are going through. Very heartwarming films, not too heavy, not too superficial - just about right.
Similar romance, similar main character who feels like a screwup and aspires to be more and is dreamy, overall very similar dreamy feel.
Both films focus on young women who are initially uncertain about how to approach their future, and begin to understand more about themselves through their interactions with other people and some supernatural elements.
