This is the year 2010. Akari Yoshiyama as the main character who is the daughter of Kazuko Yoshiyama and is about to be a college student. Her mother, Kazuko is a pharmacologist at the college where Akari will go to soon.
One day, Goro Asakura who is a childhood friend of Kazuko brings Kazuko a picture and lavender from the Fukamachi family’s house. The picture was taken when Kazuko was in junior high school. On the picture, she is with a guy, but Kazuko and Goro don’t know.
That same day, Kazuko is run over by a car and sent to a hospital. When she comes back from her unconsciousness, as if she remembers, she asks Akari to meet a guy named, Kazuo Fukamachi at the science room of her junior high school in April of 1972.
To fulfill what Kazuko says, Akari takes medicine to leap time which Kazuko made. But Akari is such a clumsy girl! She thought it is February of 1974 and she leaps to that time. Plus, when she leaps time, she falls on the head of Ryota Mizorogi who is a college student! Now, what will happen to her and why did Kazuko tell Akari to go to meet the guy! Her mysterious travel has just begun!
Akari Yoshiyama – Main character and the daughter of Kazuko. She is a high school girl who has just passed her exam to go to the college which her mother works at. In case you don’t know, this actress, Riisa Naka who did Makoto as her voice on the anime of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time!
Ryota Mizorogi – He is a guy who has bad luck because a teenager fell on his head! ━(;Ⅲ□Ⅲ;)━ He is a college student who likes Sci-fi and he makes a film with his friends. By the way, this actor, Akiyoshi Nakao and the actress, Riisa Naka married! ゜。(*´∀｀)。゜Happy゜。(´∀｀*)。゜
Kazuko Yoshiyama – Akari’s mother. She works at the college as a pharmacologist. She divorced her husband when Akari was a baby and she has been raised by Akari all by herself.
Goro Asakura – Kazuko’s childhood friend. He brings the old picture to Kazuko and the story of this movie starts!

Mishi’s top picks for Otaku
What I notice is this movie is a sequel of the movie “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (Toki Wo Kakeru Shojo)” in 1983! They have a Blue-Ray but it is in Japanese only! That sucks! Have you noticed that the story of this movie is different from the anime movie so I think you should watch this movie as a different story of someone who can leap time! You shouldn’t compare this movie and the anime movie because the anime one was too good but that doesn’t mean this movie was bad. Personally, I like this movie! You can watch this movie as Fantasy/Sci-fi movie or pure love story!
It is so interesting that a daughter leaps time and meets her young mother! What do you think? Do you want to leap your time and meet your young mother?? I think I pass on that opportunity because I will see something which I don’t want to see, you know what I mean! This girl is so lucky that her mother has a decent time. lol Oh well, let’s go back to the detail of this movie! (*^Д^)ノ
The story of this movie is different from the story of the anime but I think they have a common thing between them. The common thing is refreshment. I talked about this on the anime one too but after I finished watching both of the movies, I felt refreshment. It made me feel better and somehow I felt like my heart is washed clean! Those movies probably contain a purifying action! ヾ(´^ω^)ノ♪ They will get the dirt off of your heart! You can feel like your heart is reborn! Maybe, I exaggerated a little bit but you can feel that way. Both of them have a different story but the way they go is the same way. I mean the story. Young people who are from a different timeline become closer and closer but in the end….. This movie is described as a comical way but actually it has a sad young people’s love story. This will make you move so you might need to prepare a tissue~! ﾟ･｡(｡/□＼｡)｡･ﾟ
I think the series of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time can last forever! The way the story goes is a sure thing! Don’t you think so? (｀Д´≡｀Д´)?? That is why Japanese have kept on remaking under different stories of this over and over but still it looks fresh! This type of story is probably immortal and universal! It makes me feel that way. I can recommend this movie to all kind of people. See, I can recommend it universally! ヽ（´３`）ﾉ
By the way, I figured out why this title is named as Time Traveller before The Girl Who Leapt Through Time! Because she doesn’t leap time many times like the anime movie. I mean it doesn’t matter and there is nothing to make the story look bad but I was curious about the title before I watched this movie. Why is it Time Traveller? but now I got a clue. That is it! lol
Thank you for reading this post! If you are interested in the anime movie version, here is the link to my post!
