The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

So tonight at the anime club meeting, we ended up watching "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time"... which, despite the oddity of its title, was probably one of the best time-travel movies I've ever seen. :3 Perhaps it's because in the end, it wasn't about technology or paradoxes or saving the world, but about the characters.

That, and the fact that the protagonist used time travel to get pudding! Mmmmm...

It was also one of the few times a movie actually sprung a twist on me. (I won't go into what it was, though... nyahahah...) Still, all in all, an excellent movie.

It ended up putting me into a rather pensive and serious mood, though. I've been quite, quite lazy of late, but at least it shook me from my complacency. I wonder if I'll be able to do anything with that tomorrow, or if I'll just slip back into my old habits? Ahhhh...

I'd say more, but honestly, I don't want this to turn into a(n admittedly introspective) rant about my life. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow, if there's time....

Hey cool, Misch.

"The Girl Who Leapt Through Time", huh? I've never heard of it? What is the basic premise of the film? besides timetravel and pudding. :p
In trying to find out when it was released, I found a wikipedia article that does a pretty good job of describing it. ( ) As noted, it's basically about a high-school girl who somehow develops the power to leap backwards through time, allowing her to redo past actions. At first she uses it to back and eat pudding (at least, a pudding her sister ate before her), sing karaoke, ace tests, and so on. But as the movie goes along she starts seeing the adverse consequences to some of these actions.

Sounds like an interesting story. Do you have anything you figure you'd do with a spot of time travelling?
