The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

The Girl who Leapt Through TimeIf you’re looking for a fun, touching summer movie, you can’t go wrong with The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.

It’s an anime film released two years ago, centering around a Japanese high school girl with two male friends, and the surprising summer she has as she stumbles upon an ability to (duh) jump through time.

It’s a high-quality production throughout. The animation’s fluid, characters are drawn consistently and realistically, the music fits, and the voices work well.

Even better, it avoids anime cliches. This is a light-hearted film that just happens to be animated.

It’s a perfect summer flick; fun, light, airy, but with just enough melodrama to remind one of lazy teen summers and the fleeting hearts of youth.

(Okay, I blush at the cheesiness of that last phrase. But it fits, somehow.)
