Review: Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo

Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo (The Girl who Jumps Through Time)

This movie is cute. It’s got appealing art, engaging characters, and a nice story. It’s not science fiction; it’s a high-school romance in which the main character happens to gain the ability to travel through time. It avoids stereotypes, both of high school and of time travel.

I can’t say that the plot is watertight, or that the humor is always perfectly on-target. What I can say is that considered as a whole, this movie hangs together very well. It’s worth watching! It’s better than most summer blockbusters that come out.

Genre: high-school romance
Emotion: I could use time-travel powers like that
BTFS: .88
