Japan The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is an animated Japanese film produced by the animation studio Madhouse and distributed through Kadokawa Herald Pictures, first released in theatres in Japan on July 15, 2006.
Tsutsui Yasutaka's novel, Toki o Kakeru Shōjo (unofficial translation: The Little Girl Who Conquered Time) is the inspiration of the film, but it certainly isn't an adaptation of the book. Instead, the film is set as a continuation of the book in the same setting some twenty years later.
Tsutsui Yasutaka praised the film as being "a true second-generation" of his book at the Tokyo International Anime Fair on March 24, 2006.
After the screening our cafe transformed into a Karaoke bar. Everyone sang and drank together at Kotatsu.
