A high-school girl named Makoto acquires the power to travel back in time, and decides to use it for her own personal benefits. Little does she know that she is affecting the lives of others just as much as she is her own.
This movie was released to a small number of theaters in Japan, taking in approximately 300 million yen (US$3 million). The film wasn't advertised as frequently as other animation features from 2006 (such as "Tales from Earthsea"), but word of mouth and glowing reviews generated interest. At Theatre Shinjuku for days in a row, film-goers would fill the theater, some even standing to watch the film. Following this, distribution company Kadokawa Herald Pictures took unprecedented measures to increase the number of theaters showing the film across Japan, and sent the film to several international festivals.
It's our lucky day
Makoto Konno: No, It's my lucky day
Chiaki Mamiya: And that, Why?
Makoto Konno: People say that when you have a bad day, nothing will go fine. But that is not for me. Because I'm always lucky.
Fukushima sensei: Let's see: Anyone want to guess why I was late?
Yuri Hayakawa: An exam?
Fukushima sensei: Exactly, Miss Hayakawa
Makoto Konno: Anyway,...
Spoiler: During the time-stop sequence Chiaki laments that he will not be able to see the painting he has come to the past for because it is in restoration and he will not be around the next day when it is put on the wall. But Makoto knows that the picture is worked on by her aunt and so they could just go upstairs and take a look at it (they may find the door locked but the possibility is not even mentioned). Chiaki's last jump could not have erased that memory because Makoto's knowledge predates the event.
