The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
The Plot of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
All the while she tells her aunt, Kazuko Yoshiyama, about her ability to leap through time. Her aunt works as an art restorer at the Tokyo National Museum in The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Kazuko suggests that Makoto may be hurting other people while changing her own past. Makoto starts to take notice of this when a classmate is given her misfortune in cooking class. She also uses this to escape a love confession from Chiaki. But she does not only use it for herself, but to help out her friends. She is able to get Kōsuke a girlfriend, Kaho Fujitani, whom has been in love with him for a while.
By the end of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Chiaki asks Makoto if she has been using this ability. To escape from him asking this, she uses her ability for the final time. Doing this causes her friends Kōsuke and Kaho to get into the train accident meant for Makoto. As she is weeping she realizes things suddenly change and Chiaki saved the two from dying. He explains that he is from the future and cam to see a painting, ironically the one Makoto's aunt is restoring. He had lost his device in the school and found it used up by Makoto. She asks him why he can not go back and he explains he used his last time to save Kōsuke and Kaho. The ending is a bit intense so I will not even begin to ruin it for you.
The Characters of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
Makoto is the main character of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and like I said, she is very clumsy. She is your average high school Japanese student. She doesn't know what she wants to do with her life. Chiaki is more of the comedic relief of the group. He is also an average student. Kōsuke is the smart student in the group. He is a very respectable person and remains calm at every situation.
The Painting of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is definitely one of the better anime films I have seen. It tops most Miyazaki films. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is not at all what you expect, it far exceeds any expectation. This should definitely be on the shelf of any Otaku.
