There is a future that we can't wait for. What would you do if you could 'leap' backward through time? When tomboyish 17 year old Makoto Konno gains this ability after an accident in her high school chemistry lab, she immediately sets about improving her grades and preventing personal mishaps. Before long, however, she realizes that even innocuous changes can have terrible consequences. Changing the past is not as simple as it seems, and eventually Makoto will have to rely on her new powers to shape the future for herself and her friends. Featuring brilliant character design by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and stunning art direction by long time Studio Ghibli. Nizo Yamamoto's The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is a feast for the eyes as well as the heart.

Breathtaking, Heartwarming, and Fun
Absolutely beautiful visuals. Exceptional writing. It captures the sweetness, naivete, and passion of youth, as well as the joy of long hot languid summer days. And it depicts time-travel as a magical thing; not so much "sci-fi", but a natural, human, much more believable process. Wonderful re-telling of the classic tale.
