It was pretty good, with such well written reviews, I expected a little more from watching this film. Wait, no. A lot more. 
 
The movie is about a simple, normal girl who doesn't really know what to do with her life. One day she get's into an accident that suddenly gives her time leaping powers. Once she realized her new acquired power, i thought she would go "Alright! Time to go find out the winning lottery numbers and go back in time so i could gain some serious moolah!". But no, she didn't do that. Instead she does things like what she thinks is right but will obviously backfire.
 
What i liked and what bugged me:
The film made me smile and was heart warming but i had a problem that bugged me while watching this film...The plot is so short. And I'm not talking about the length or 'i wish it was longer!' i mean, the story overall was short. I felt like it just dragged on for 70% of the time. In my head, this statement kept running through my brain and it said "i get it, i get it. You can leap through time and your having a blast and it's making your life super convenient, You don't have to stress it out anymore"  I just felt like the whole 'yay i can leap through time' thing could've been shortened to maybe, five minutes? But it was the only problem I.
  
I just though that some parts were so beautiful while watching this film and it was amazing because it didn't come off as emo.  I also liked the combination of drama+school life+sci fi+ a hint of romance and maybe comedy minus all the fan service and random gags we would usually see in the drama+school life+ sci fi category. I was really into the climax(es), i felt the frustration and the atmosphere, but when the ending just came, it felt like plop! Then the movie ended but my heart had this warm aftertaste that i could maybe relate to the main character. Like if i gained those powers, would i really do something big like win the lottery? Or just  modify my life and the people around me so that after the powers are gone, i would be left with a slightly better life.
 
Final thoughts:
Overall, i can't say that this was super breath taking and it changed my perspective on certain things or that the world should watch this. But what i could say is that  it if you want to watch a simple animation film that has good animation(well of course it should have good animation, its a film) and is witty and touching(as well as having sci fi undertones), i reccomend this to you! . Maybe you will understand me on how the film drags and the ending felt like plop! Or maybe not. BUT IN CONCLUSION! this film is enjoyable, i was really into it and i hope you will too.
