The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

This review has one spoiler.

Makoto Konno is a Japanese high school girl who gets killed by a train because her bike brakes failed. Except instead of waking up in Japanese heaven full of businessmen cats she wakes up back at home in the past. Turns out she can leap through time by literally running and jumping in the air.

Now she’s altering the fabric of time whenever she wants another hour of karaoke. She uses time travel to play matchmaker for her friend Kōsuke and ends up getting him and his new girlfriend killed by that same train. Also she goes back in time to stop that from happening, too.

I wish I could go back in time and go on a date with beautiful ladies of the past. Sorry present day girlfriend. Does it count as cheating if you date someone from another time? I like that apparently all it takes in my fantasy is a time machine. Any woman in any historical period is just dying to go out with me and listen to me talk about nerdy shit.

Hey I’m from the future let’s go on a date! How did you like Star Wars, Jane Austen? Would you like to see my hacked iPhone, Marilyn Monroe? Let’s play Xbox, Cleopatra!

Maybe I’ll just use the time machine to go back in time to alter television shows about going back in time.


You’ve got to change the episode where Sam leaps into Elvis. IT SUCKS! More episodes where he fights the devil! You’re gonna get canceled and write a terrible series finale—it’s really confusing! Write a better one I’m from the future!!!

UPDATE: I had to get rid of the hacked iphone and buy an android phone. Sorry Marilyn Monroe I was going to [high pitched singing voice] excite your body with futuristic-Steve-Jobs-soul technology!
