Hello! I’m Mishi! How are you doing? Today, we should leap through the time! We are going to go to the year of 2006! ε=ε=┏( >_<)┛ What I want to recommend to you to watch is The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (時をかける少女/Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo). This is originally from 1967 as a novel. Have you known that?? It is an old novel but Japanese have kept on remaking this story as dramas, movies, manga, and anime. Now, in July of 2016, A new drama of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time has started! I think we should check what this story is like! Let’s leap through to the story of this movie! ((((((((((っ･ωΣ[Wall] Ouch!
Contents ε=ε=┏( >_<)┛
Makoto Konno who is a high school girl in Tokyo has two friends to hang out with after school. Kosuke Tsuda who wants to go to a medical college after they graduate from high school and Chiaki Mamiya who has just been transferred into their high school.
One day, Makoto enters in the science room and finds the shadow of a person. When she tries to chase that shadow, somehow, she falls and enters into a mysterious space. She tells her friends about her weird experience but they laugh at her and they don’t take her serious.
After that, when she is on the way of her home with her bike, her bike’s brake break on the downhill. In front of her, there is a railroad crossing blocking the path for a train! She is getting closer and closer! Her brakes on the bike don’t work! When she decides her death, at that moment, she stands in the middle of the downhill. Yes, her time was brought back.
She goes to her aunt named, Kazuko Yoshiyama and talked about what happened to her. Kazuko tells her that it is called “Time Leap”. It happens sometimes when it comes to a teenager. After this happened to her, she starts to be able to control how to leap through time. She uses this ability for her little things. For example, to get good grades for a test, go to karaoke and sing forever and so on! Kazuko also tells her that while Makoto is having a good time with it, on the other hand, somebody is having a bad time by her using that ability. But she doesn’t care what Kazuko says to her.
But what Kazuko says to her will be true later on. This will make her think about time leap. She thinks she uses it for good but on the other hand, somebody would feel bad to take what she changes. This will happen to herself but later on, she will find out the reason why this ability triggers her to have it and that will make this movie interesting! If you want to know more, you should check it out by yourself!

Mishi’s top picks for Otaku
This movie never gets me tired of watching over and over. Every time, I feel like I want to watch this movie it always the same time. It reminds me of summer time but it is not humid or super hot summer. It is such a refreshing summer that makes you feel comfortable. Somehow, this movie makes me feel the atmosphere like that. I like to feel the good atmosphere of each movie or anime I watch. Even though the movies or anime that doesn’t have a good story, if they have a good atmosphere, I would tend to like those movies or anime. This movie has a good storyline and music. It is sad at the end but I wonder how people take of what that guy said to Makoto. I can’t say much for people who haven’t watched this yet! You know what I am talking about right? If you have watched it already! (〃▽〃)
Put that conversation away for the people who have not watched this yet! I want to say that I like Makoto too much! The reason why I like her is because when she gets an ability to rewind time, she doesn’t use it for bigger things! If I would have that ability, probably, I would use it for making money! ε-(‐ω‐；) Yeah, sorry for being greedy! I should shame on myself! ，;’.･(ﾟεﾟ(O三(>_<`)o Makoto uses time leap for tests or Karaoke!! You have to love her! Who’s going to use this ability for those?? I think only Makoto in this world! What if you could leap through time, what would you do?? Are you going to eat pudding over and over as leaping time like her???? Actually, that sounds good to me! lol
Well, serious talk now! I think this movie describes the feelings of a teenager who is Makoto good. She doesn’t know or doesn’t want to think about the love yet at first but as she leaps time, the situation changes and she has to see the things she doesn’t want to see. Especially to her two friends. It describes the awakening feeling of love! This is so adolescent thing and naturally, it is written so this part makes people emotional. What do you say about the end?? It is sad but I think she took it positive for her future! That is why I feel refreshment!
This anime includes many emotions. but I didn’t feel negative feelings at all after finished watching this movie. I’m sure that Makoto will cheer you up and get you positive! If you want to remember the feeling of first love, adolescent time, want to fall in love with somebody or wished I had that teenager time, you should watch this movie! It is not that love story but you can get to feel the innocent and pure love. In case of tears, you might need a tissue! Here you go! ( ´∀｀)つ□ I hope you will enjoy watching this movie and get to love it!
