The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

Just finished watching The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (Toki o kakeru shôjo, 時をかける少女) a 2006 animated feature film. Since I have been writing on Facebook that I am watching this show, I’ve decided to give some remarks about it.
Overall, I did enjoy the show.
Main premise of the story is that the protagonist, Makoto Konno learns “time leap” or time travel resulting from certain incident, utilizing the ability for petty advantages in her daily life, while she learns that her action may have negative implication to people around her. Latter part of the story involves her trying to fix up consequences she has created by utilizing her ability to time travel.
Story
Relatively straightforward story.
The story is sequel to 1983 film of same name, however do not have any dependencies other than protagonist of the film being aunt of the one in this title.
The show illustrates relatively small area of social and spatial interaction; involving less than ten characters within small city, and does not have so much of depth.
Graphic and Art
“Flat” and bright. I think it pretty good though.
I liked character designs, although it is nothing special.
The way “trial and error” type of time leap (scenes without “traveling” sequence) reminded me of the movie Next.
Voice
Voice actors and actress of this show is mostly comprises ones from non-voice acting professions. Considering voice acting is new for most of these casts, I think they were appropriate, and sounded just fine. I have been feeling negative about many titles utilizing live action actors in a apparent greed of management; for added media coverage; while not considering their capacity of voice acting, which was often the case with Miyazaki’s work, for example. So I’m pleased this one worked way better than many titles with similar settings out there.
Sound/Music
Theme song was pretty good.
Good they mastered in 5.1ch audio.
