Toki Wo Kakeru Shoujo

Makoto Konno is a somewhat foolish and tomboyish high school student who spends most of her time hanging out with her two male friends. Things change one day when she suddenly gains to ability to leap through time! At first, she uses her newfound ability to do things such as preventing her sister from stealing her dessert, cheating on a test, and singing Karaoke for 10 hours. However, the small alterations she makes to the timeline turn out to have unforeseen consequences that snowball into dramatic and lethal situations for her and those around her. Source:


Now this is what I call a blockbuster movie! It’s one of those movies which makes you feel years younger with a beautiful story.

At the start, the anime brings about a nice and light intro helping characters develop. Then as the story moves on, things start to get interesting with some rather exciting turn of events. I like the slight hint of romance going on around Makoto, Kousuke and Chiaki.

Animation wise, clean lines and bright colors make up the characters. Accompanied with superior background drawing. Definitely not easy to find architectural or environment so nicely drawn in animes nowadays. The music was also very well suited. If you don’t get misty eye during the highlight of the movie, there could be something wrong with you.

I won’t talk about it any more. Mainly because everything is so good and there isn’t anything to complain about. And also I won’t be able to resist not giving out spoilers. An absolutely perfect 5-Star for what I feel could easily be the best anime movie I’ve seen this year. If you haven’t watched it yet, then please do yourself a favor and don’t miss the chance.

One thing though, after watching the anime, try to remember. She didn’t rewind time far enough to “rectify” her exam results or the cooking class incident now did she?! :p
