    After seen Wolf Children I've watched this one and got dissapointed. Not as good as expected unfortunately... 1 year ago

    The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is an anime about about a 13-year-old girl who discovers, as many do at that age apparently, that she can leap back in time and change her fate. It. Is. Hilarious. In fact, I've rarely seen an anime where the physical and visual humor was so well done and had me giggling out loud. But then, this is about a girl who puts her powers to the most capricious uses. Don't want to have that awkward conversation? Jump through time! Don't like what's for dinner? Go back to Wednesday when mom made your favorite! The various repetitions of moments are mostly played for laughs, except that one bit that's at the dramatic core of the movie, and all are choreographed perfectly so they'll stick in your mind the first time, making them easy to spot on future run-throughs. The ending is a bit sadder, but not, you know, ANIME SAD, but like the realizations the eponymous Girl makes through her amending of history, it's really more about the journey than the destination you're trying to avoid. 3 years 11 months ago

    One of the best surprises I have stumbled upon in a very long time. It is one of those movies that you know while watching it, just how amazing it is. And every time that you watch it in the future, you will spot new things that just make you love it even more. 7 years 3 months ago
