Poor Makoto. She's officially having her worst day ever! It's not enough that she overslept and barely made it into school on time, she also flunked a math quiz, got flattened by two rambunctious boys at lunchtime, accidentally set the home economics room on fire, and then had this really weird accident while cleaning the science lab. Then to top it all off, she just had to crash her bike into this really crabby lady on her way home[[BreadEggsMilkSquick ...and that wasn't until ''after'' she'd already been hit and killed by the train!]]

An award-winning 2006 animated Japanese film produced by the animation studio Madhouse and distributed through Kadokawa Herald Pictures, ''TheGirlWhoLeaptThroughTime'' is an adaptation of/sequel to a very popular 1966 novel by Yasutaka Tsutsui (previously adapted into three live action films (1983, 1997, and 2010), a 5 episode TV series (1994), a 2002 TV film and a 2004 manga title (''A Girl Who Cut Through Time''), none of which received wide distribution in the west). Familiarity with the previous material is not necessary in order to understand or enjoy the film, although it is implied that Makoto's "Aunt Witch" is the protagonist of the original story, helping to explain some of the comments that she makes.

Not An Example. Any interest Kousuke has in Makoto is very low-key, and Kousuke is not in any way even on Makoto's radar as a romantic possibility; she spends a good bit of the film matchmaking him with Kaho.
* BettyAndVeronica: [[GenderFlip Gender Flipped]] with Kousuke (Betty) and Chiaki (Veronica) for Makoto.

* PantyShot: Surprisingly averted. Makoto goes tumbling a lot, but the viewer never gets a shot of her undergarments. The movie in general does not concern itself with {{fanservice}}.
