Quotes

Makoto Konno: Why did you use it? Shouldn't it have been saved for the right time?
Chiaki Mamiya: It was the right time. You don't remember, but Kousuke and that girl died once at that crossing. A certain someone was crying with guilt, so I had no choice. I had to go back, but before I noticed, it was summer. Being with you two... was too much fun. It was the first time I ever saw a running river on the surface. It was the first time I ever rode a bike. It was the first time I ever knew how vast the sky was. And above all....

Modern Remake of a Classic !
28 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The company that made this movie - Madhouse is aptly named, because this movie is insane.

What happens when an average high school girl discovers she has ability to travel in time ?

Makoto discovers she has ability to move back in time, and she "jumps" to correct for all the inconvenient things that happened to her in the past days which includes getting better grades in her exams, exchanging position with another person to avoid getting involved in a chem lab fire, avoiding collision with a guys who's getting thrown across the lawn, eating a pudding before her sister gets to it etc.. All these made possible because she's already experienced them once.

Based on a novel by Yasutaka Tsutsui, The girl who leapt through time, or Toki o kakeru shojo (a.k.a. Tokikake) is an animated version of a classic which has been made into a movie, and TV drama in the past with live actors. This is a modernized version reflecting cultural changes in the way youth perceives the world around them. What haven't changed much is the city scape of Japan in the urban area, and it's interesting to compare this movie to the one made back in the '80s.

The plot takes maximum advantage of what funny things a person can do when they have the ability to travel in time, and this is done in good humor which is insanely fun to watch.

Some connection to the movie with same title made in the '80s also by Kadokawa is hinted as Makoto's aunt is Kazuko Yoshiyama who was the Girl that leaped through time in the '80s version.

Voice over is superb (in the Japanese version), and the voice and character of Makoto matches so perfectly.

One of the best anime to come from Japan in recent years, this movie is highly recommended for anime fans, and Asian movie fans alike.
