Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time)

Today i just finish watching this awesome anime film - The Girl Who Leapt Through Time or 時をかける少女(Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo/TokiKake). This anime is very nice, in term of story, quality and as well as song/music, although some part is quite boring. But when the story go on, it just getting and getting interesting. The story is same as the title, a girl name Makoto who can travel times(go back to past). But of course when undo something, you need to sacrifice something too, when you undo something for yourself, you might be hurting someone else. (Makoto consider quite cute also ^^).

It DVD is sell on 20 April 2007, it sold over 110 thousand copy in 2 month, its alot for anime film, that why you can think how good of this anime film is. I wish to buy it Limited Edition DVD as well, but it sold out on Amazon Japan, need to find a way to bought it. I can't tell much on the story because i very weak in writting and summary, so i borrow the short story summary from wikipedia. If you haven't wacth it, you must go and find and watch it.

DVD Cover


The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (時をかける少女, Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo, also known as TokiKake) is a Japanese anime film produced by the animation studio Madhouse and distributed through Kadokawa Herald Pictures, first released in theatres in Japan on July 15, 2006. The film was later released on DVD on April 20, 2007 in Japan in regular and limited editions. At this time it is unknown as to whether or not the film will be released on DVD in other regions. A manga story, set as a prelude to the film, was serialized in Kadokawa Shoten's Shounen Ace manga magazine between April 26, 2006 and June 26, 2006; the chapters were later collected into a single bound volume which went on sale on July 26, 2006.

Tsutsui Yasutaka's novel, Toki o Kakeru Shoujo (unofficial translation: The Little Girl Who Conquered Time) is the basis of the film, but the film is not a movie version of the book. Instead, the film is set as a continuation of the book in the same setting some twenty years later. Tsutsui Yasutaka praised the film as being "a true second-generation" of his book at the Tokyo International Anime Fair on March 24, 2006.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time was released to a small number of theaters in Japan, taking in approximately 300 million yen. It took alot of award as well, like Best Animated Film in the ANIMA'T category at the thirty-ninth Sitges International Film Festival of Catalonia. It won the Animation Grand Award, given to the year's most entertaining animated film, at the prestigious sixty-first Annual Mainichi Film Awards. It was also awarded the first annual Animation of the Year prize at the thirtieth Japan Academy Prize. It was nominated for, but did not win, the twenty-seventh Japan SF Grand Prize. It received the grand prize in the animation division in the Japan Media Arts Plaza in 2006. At the sixth annual Tokyo International Anime Fair, which opened on March 22, 2007, TokiKake was recognized as "Animation of the Year."It won the Special Distinction for Feature Film at France's thirty-first Annecy International Animated Film Festival on June 16, 2007.
[From: Wikipedia]
Makoto Konno, a girl attending high school in Tokyo's shitamachi, one day she gains the power when in the science lab, and she first time to go back in time and re-do things (the time-leap) when she gets involved in an accident at a train crossing one day.

A little bewildered with her new powers at first, Makoto uses them extravagantly to avoid being tardy and to get perfect grades on tests. However, things began to turn bad as she discovers how her actions can adversely affect others. Along the way, Makoto's aunt, Kazuko Yoshiyama, offers some advice to her niece, with the hint that she herself had done something similar in the past. (Kazuko is the protaganist of the novel, The Little Girl Who Conquered Time.)


This is where she get the power.

First time to use the power when she on the accident, she can't stop her bike and fall onto the train lane and the train is coming. After that she activate and return before the accident. And she realise she is leap time, after that she tell her auntie Kazuko.

This is where the Chiaki tell Makoto he will wait her in the future, and Makoto also promise she will be there and run there(The boy, Chiaki is come from the future and the time leap also from him). And at last screenshot, Makoto look to the sky, maybe she waiting the future? who know?
