An award-winning 2006 animated Japanese film directed by Creator/MamoruHosoda, produced by the animation studio Madhouse and distributed through Kadokawa Herald Pictures, ''Anime/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).

* DerangedAnimation: Especially the first time-leap sequence. It's deranged in a very ''pretty'' way, at least.* * DisproportionateRetribution: The classmate Makoto causes to have a cookery accident in her place blames her for it and the consequent bullying he experiences (which admittedly was fairly extreme) to the point that he snaps, turns a fire extinguisher on her and when that fails, throws it bodily at her.

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!]]
