YesAsia Editorial Description

Toki wo Kakeru Shojo, written by renowned sci-fi novelist Tsutsui Yasutaka (The World Sinks Except Japan), has previously been adapted into manga, anime series, and live-action film, but the 2006 animated feature film offers a different take on the story. Rather than being a straightforward adaptation, Hosoda Mamoru's Toki wo Kakeru Shojo, a.k.a. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, presents an updated version, or rather a continuation, of the story. Set some twenty years after the novel's timeline, the film follows the adventures of a young girl, different from the original protagonist, but with the same time-traveling abilities.

Bumbling high school student Konno Makoto rides her bike recklessly, is often late to school, and does poorly on her exams. On top of that, lately she's been having odd visions and hearing strange voices. One day on her way home from school, she is again riding her bike too fast - too fast to stop herself from hitting an oncoming train. In a flash, Makoto is mysteriously transported back in time just enough to avoid the accident. After discovering her "time leaping" abilities, Makoto uses it liberally to make life more pleasant - no more tardiness, no more blown exams, no more little sister eating her pudding. When relationship issues begin to arise between Makoto and her friends Chiaki and Kousuke, she again falls back on time leaping to avoid awkward situations, only to get herself into further messes. Makoto learns the hard way that playing with time has consequences...

Toki wo Kakeru Shojo is produced by Studio Madhouse, whose titles include all four Kon Satoshi films and a long list of anime favorites like Trigun, Ninja Scroll, Cardcaptor Sakura, Chobits, and the Death Note anime series. Though the film opened in a small number of theaters, it garnered great reviews, building an audience through word of mouth, and picked up quite a few awards. Toki wo Kakeru Shojo beat out blockbuster contenders Tales from Earthsea and Brave Story to take home the Best Animated Film award at the 30th Japan Academy Awards.

Another girl conquers time! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
For anyone who has watched the entertaining "Girl of Time" (aka The Girl Who Conquered Time), seeing "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" provides a weird sense of deja vu. The stories in each are quite similar, but definitely not identical. Indeed, "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" is a continuation of the story begun in the earlier movie, although the link between the two would be noticed only be a true otaku: the central character in the first film appears as the aunt of the central character of the second movie.

Makoto is a bright and cute high school student, but seems always to be behind schedule. She's often a bit frazzled, unprepared for pop quizzes, late for class, racing to be on time for events. One day, in her school's chemistry lab, she falls and bangs her elbow on what appears to be a walnut. From that moment, her life changes. Although she doesn't know it yet, she now has acquired the ability to leap backward and forward in time. Some might use this skill to amass a fortune or seek world peace. Makoto's objective is personal: She hopes to win back the heart of a boy whose advances she rejected.

The movie plays out in a manner akin to the American film "Groundhog Day", with Makoto repeatedly going back in time trying to correct the problems she causes and do things better. Unlike Bill Murray's character, Makoto is in control of her time travel. When Makoto finally seems to get things right, she learns that the object of her affection has been hiding a big secret.

"The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" is nicely scripted and animated. Like most (all?) time travel movies, its logic is problematic. However, Makoto is such a compelling character that the viewer is eager to suspend disbelief and see what happens next to this charming girl. Warmly recommended for the entire family.

Superb Animated Feature! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Take Groundhog Day and mix it with a bit of Japanese true love youth dramas and you have The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, a wonderful and touching animated film from Studio Madhouse and author Tsutsui Yasutaka. Klutzy Makoto, always late to class and more than a little scatterbrained, soon learns that she has the ability to travel back in time after a near fatal train accident. After mastering her ability, she wastes no time in using it for petty, personal matters related to school work, sisterly squabbles, and wanting to avoid awkward conversations with friends. When complications arise in her relationships with friends Kosuke and Chiaki, Makoto must set things right, but all her time jumping in the beginning came at a great cost.

With the time jumping element essentially acting as a plot device, the filmmakers can focus on the characters and the story. Once you accept the logic of the film, you can't help but get sucked into the characters and their plight. The end result is a heartfelt story of the importance of time not only to everyday matters, but to our ultimate happiness. Highest recommendation!

The quality of the DVD is pretty good. The picture looks great (especially on an HDTV), and the subtitles contain few errors. If I had to gripe about something, it's that the Japanese audio track on this Hong Kong release is only in Dolby Surround as opposed to Dolby Digital 5.1. Oh well, small price to pay to see this film at such an affordable price.
