People actually criticized the running scene? Wow...

Though I think the exposition in the very end was a bit too abrupt and didn't make a whole lot of sense by itself IMO. Of course, the movie the closest to it in idea, Groundhog Day, didn't expose the exact reason why it was happening, but the flow to the end felt much more natural and went for 30 minutes in the end.

The running scene was hilariously and great, I loved it. I too am surprised that a few people disliked the running scene.

Spoiler for spoiler/opinion:


I want to watch Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo (again) after I have graduated.

After watching the movie I felt glad and when I saw the dvd for sale (out of Region 1). I didn't think twice buying, I got it to the counter immediately with some of my money in hand .

True and sadly there isn't any word (I heard of) when the dvds will be released (for Region 1).

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time in LA, NYC, Seattle

Anime News Netwrok is reporting on the dates for the American limited release of the award winning Japanese film, The Girl who Leapt Though Time.
Bandai Entertainment and Kadokawa Pictures USA have announced that Mamoru Hosoda’s award-winning The Girl Who Leapt through Time film will play in Los Angeles and New York City from June 13 to June 19, and in Seattle, Washington from August 29 to September 4. For the June theatrical release, the film will play in the ImaginAsian film houses in both cities. The Los Angeles theater will have the English-subbed version, while New York will have the English-dubbed version. In Seattle, the English-subbed version will play in the Landmark Theatres’ Varsity Theatre. Bandai Entertainment had previously announced that more venues in other cities and DVD plans will be revealed later.

The film updates the premise of Tsutsui Yasutaka’s best-selling A Girl Who Runs Through Time (Toki o Kakeru Shōjo or TokiKake) novel by having a modern Japanese girl discover she can leap back in time. A subtitled trailer is available online. CMX Manga is releasing Gaku Tsugano’s earlier two-volume manga adaptation of the original novel in September and November.
I would highly recommend anyone in those areas make the trip to see the movie in theaters. It’s not only on my all time favorite anime list, but has transcended it’s medium and made it onto my all time favorite movie list as well.

It has a solid story, good characters, and does a very good job exploring the temptations and the dangers of Time Travel. Really, is there anything better than Time Travel?

I hate going down into LA, but for this movie I'll make an exception.

I just discovered by chance that Tokikake is being shown in London at the National Film Theatre on Sat 21st June at 13:20 (in NFT1). It's part of a weekend of anime from 20-22 June.
They don't actually say whether it's sub or dub, I would hope surely sub given the context. (They're also showing 5cm/s and Makoto Shinkai is actually going to be there for a Q&A session!)

To me, the magic of the movie was in YS's character designs. I've yet to find another designer who bowls me over.

I loved this movie. The best anime movie i've ever seen. And I have to agree that the best scene was the accident when she was screaming 'Tomare' over and over.

The setup for that climactic accident scene was brilliantly done, we get totally misdirected with the phone call, as does she herself, when I thought—and I think she thought—he was summoning up courage to ask her out but instead it's the shock question “are you time leaping?” After all that we’ve quite forgotten about the huge earlier panic, only to be hit by that big "DUMMMM" as the bike sails past....

I think the clever thing about the film is how we’re always in Makoto's shoes, we know what she knows, and feel what she feels, the mood of the film itself always following her mood very closely, so we identify with her and share her joys and agonies really intensely.

@incube: As for the waiting in the future thing, you need to read the rest of this thread, it has been a recurring topic of discussion with many views expressed. Personally I think it was just words, a rhetorical way of saying how much they mean to each other, a defiant stance against destiny if you like, but others think it may have some genuine possibility.

Finished the film. My thoughts are as followed - absolutely loved the first half, involving her experiments with the time travel, getting herself out of awkward situations, but then seeing the horrible results of her meddling as she watched her friend ride towards his death without being able to do anything except scream. Great direction, writing, art, etc.

I was slightly less fond of the second half because of the expansion of the time traveling beyond Makoto, and a more sci-fi bent added to the proceedings, with talk of different eras, a character returning to "his time", etc. Perhaps that was too much for me, since I'm so firmly rooted in "slice of life".

That being said, it is definitely worth watching.
