They look so alike that it has to be considered, and it actually makes quite a lot of sense. ''Anime/MyNeighborTotoro'' was set in 1958, when Satsuki was around nine or ten years old. Makoto, in her canon anime, is around 17, and let's say we're assuming that TheGirlWhoLeaptThroughTime is set in 2006, when the film was released. That means that Satsuki would have been around 41 when Makoto was born and a little bit older when Makoto's sister was born, which is still an age at which many women would be able to conceive children.

[[WMG: Makoto never leapt through time at all.]]
It's only after the train scene that thing ''really'' start to get weird- beforehand during the baseball game, it was confirmed she was just dreaming until her younger sister woke her up. Makoto got hit by the train and is comatose- Chiaki confesses to her while she's comatose, Kousuke, Yuri, Kano and the rest of her family visit her. When she promises Chiaki she will hurry up, he was actually asking her to ''wake up'' soon and find him. The red lines that reappear also look, from far away, like a heart monitor.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The future is post-apocalyptic, but also more mystical and nature-based]]
The future described seems to be one where the world is unlivable to a far extent, with the sky unseeable and the population far smaller. This implies a heavily polluted future, with the sky choked with smog. However, they don't just use their time travel to fix this, so there must be some other reason. Perhaps in the future, the dominant religion is extremely hippie-esque, with the idea that they shouldn't interfere, but also that they need to fix the world. Because of that, breeding is restricted (free, unlimited contraception, perhaps), leading to smaller, more manageable populations that don't require massive pollution. Additionally, time travel is seen as somewhat mystical, which is why the battery looks like a nut of sorts. It's designed to look natural.

The painting was probably important, but [[spoiler: Future Makoto]], [[TheSlowPath whatever]] [[GoneToTheFuture age]] she was, told Chiaki to lie so that through him, she could create a TrickedOutTime loop.

* On the other hand, if people stop being taught Required Kanji before their last years of high school once computers become the de facto method of teaching and doing homework, it's possible that Chiaki is from as near a future as the early 2020s, and the Japanese government has started full-immersion teaching of using a system of hiragana/katakana with an identifier code for homonyms. Since Japan mostly uses kanji based on the Chinese pronunciation of the symbol rather than the Chinese meaning of the symbol and Japanese pronunciation, it seems perfectly reasonable that the government (in the future of 2006, or of the year of whichever adaptation first introduced that detail) would decide that Japan would trail behind purely letter-based countries in computer efficiency and therefore ability. Said government then sets up a system wherein Japanese students learn the new system, which consists of all the regular hiragana and/or katakana, but instead of kanji mostly uses the words spelled out in kana with a code to identify which homonym is being used beyond simple context.

IIRC, they mention at some point that he cannot read Kanji at all. One explanation could be that in the future he came from, Kanji isn't used anymore. Languages change all the time, and we don't know how far his future is.

* {{Jossed}}, Aunt Witch has been outright stated to be Kazuko Yoshiyama, the protagonist of the original novel the film was 'based' on (though it was more of a spin-off sequel of sorts). She experienced a similar course of events to what happened to Makoto in the film though, which is why she knew about time-leaps.
