Blade Licking Thieves Podcast – The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006)

By Grant

A pod, time skip, and some jumps...

We review the 2006 anime film The Girl Who Leapt Through Time from director Mamoru Hosoda: a delightful coming of age comedy/drama loosely based on a story by Paprika writer Yasutaka TsuiTsui about a teen-aged girl named Makoto who discovers she has the ability to quite literally leap through time.

You can watch The Girl Who Leapt Through Time on Funimation, Amazon Prime Video, VUDU, YouTube, and iTunes.
