Editorial Reviews

Akari is the daughter of the time-traveling teen from the
anime classic The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. In order
to help her mother, she travels from the present to the
1970s, where she must contend with a world without instant
communication AND meet her father, who she never knew!

Customer Reviews

Good story line with a little twist.
Lawrence Floresca
They blurred the picture a bit so the image is too soft compared to the original.

What is primarily different in American and Japanese storytelling is that the story itself IS the most important element...PERIOD.

If you're looking for special effects, it's actually got a few that are sublime, such as the timecode for freezing the elements within a frame-but I digress.

What's also important within this genre is the emotive response of each of the main characters as the story unfolds; the plot twists are intended to keep you moving along, but not give away the ending.

I won't spoil it. But what I will tell you is that once again, there is a fantastically complicated emotional story that's sporting a bittersweet ending that's fitting the scheme of the writer's original intent.

The director made the film as if he really wanted to tell the story the way it was written...isn't that worth the price of admission?

While the video quality may not be stellar, it's the story that's important.

Perhaps what's also really great here is how the minglings of humor, sarcasm, and pure ingenuity leave you saying, "Wow, I didn't see that one coming..."

Akira's development from a girl celebrating her 18th birthday, to watching herself walk through the cherry blossoms is nothing short of a transformation of your perception of her.

I love the concept of the original story called "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" by Yasutaka Tsutsui (the book from which this movie jumps off). I've read the book and seen the manga version of "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" that was released in 2006.

Unlike the anime, the protagonist in the movie doesn't play around much. She is on a mission to find someone from her mother's past. There are, of course, complications, but what good story doesn't have any? The movie has a really good ending, but I wouldn't necessarily classify it as happy. That's one key way in which Japanese movies can differ from American ones.

As another reviewer said, the quality isn't perfect, but I think the story and the acting is good enough that watching this movie is totally justified. There are plot twists that I never saw coming, and it kept the movie very interesting. I highly recommend it!

I like this movie but the DVD is not great. The video quality looks like an XviD encode. They blurred the picture a bit so the image is too soft compared to the original. If you collect films and care about quality, save your money...this is not the best edition out there. If you just want to see this movie on your player, go for it. The English subtitles are decent, but the size of the DVD is only 4.77GB. They could have used this extra space to improve video quality. Extras include just 1 film trailer.

I absolutely love this film. The story is fantastical and compelling. The acting is excellent, particularly the lead. The plot is original. This movie should be on your must see list as it is just so original and well done in every way.

This film was excellent. It has lots of emotional ups and downs and an excellent story. I was very moved by it. I highly recommend this movie for anyone looking a good romantic adventure. Naka Riisa does a wonderful job in it.

Given the hype about this being a movie made from a popular book, you would think they would be willing to pay for good quality direction, cinematography, and video processing. Not so. The movie is very slow, and the acting is at best OK. The story itself is not a bad story at all. Had there been a better director, better acting, better camera work, better pacing of the movie, this could have been another good time travel movie.

I had seen a preview of the movie and had it on the wish list. I finally had some time and decided to watch the movie.

At first I thought I made a mistake as it started out with Japanese racing much faster than the sparse English subtitles. There was background sound that did not match the pictorial scenes. For the first ten minutes or so I was sure I made a mistake. Then the movie and the acting and the story started to show through. I completely forgot that I was reading subtitles. I started kibitzing. Many stories are very transparent and you can anticipant the next step. This one was fresh at every turn.

A woman (Narumi Yasuda) who invents a time travel liquid finds herself in a coma from an accident. She gains consciousness just long enough to send her teenage daughter Akari Yoshiyama (Riisa Naka) on a mission from 2010 to 1972 to hold a chemistry student Masamichi Hasegawa (Munetaka Aoki) to his promise. Though some mishaps and a series of coincidences we get a much more intricate story then just time traveling. The well done ending even though surprising could not be any other way.
