The movie very much has a water-colory texture to it. It's definitely anime but has a unique look to it. The best part of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time would have to be its concept of time travel that is realized through leaping through time. An interesting idea. The movie also has a cheerful hilarious look of social situations. While occasionally serious when concerning the issue of time travel it's mostly breezy (light) in manner. This is an easy anime movie to follow that is enjoyable. Make time some day to see for sure!
