In an age where 3D animation is the rage, it is the motivating and simple story that will motivate and inspire. It reminds us of the Japanese's craft in animation and story-telling that have put Howl’s Moving Castle and Spirited Away on the world’s platform.

The winner of Best Animation Film in Japan 2006, this time travel piece reminded me of Run Lola Run, where people have the second chance to change their lives.

Makoto Konno, a teenager that many could identify with, could "leap" backwards through time to improve her falling grades and bad luck. As she started to use this power to shape the future and her relationships with two boys, her final fate may become too hard for her to bear.

It was Makoto's million expressions and simple heart that would draw you into the movie as though you were part of it. Although the ending was a little haphazard, the process of following in her decision making was very thought-provoking.

You might also think about what you would do if you were in her shoes and had that same ability as well. Though I may want to leap back far behind, we must embrace the world we are in. That is sadly, the reality of life.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time – Hopefully, it can make you treasure your time a lot more
