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 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…

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time 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. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time beat out blockbuster contenders Tales from Earthsea and Brave Story to take home the Best Animated Film award at the 30th Japan Academy Awards.
