Makoto accidentally obtained the power to travel through time. while it could be used for both good deeds as well as selfishly abused, Makoto used the ability to leap into the past to change little things just to make her life easier. it seemed like every thing was for enjoyment, the accumulation of these insignificant events turned out to change the future with drastic consequences.
despite the simple drawings, the film was surprisingly good. it plot was straightforward if not simple. the repetitive events tend to make us lost track of its main course but before we realized, we were completely engaged. there reached a point where we couldn't figure out how the outcome would be, the possibility for the film to end badly was a 50-50 chance. but it turned out that we had nothing to worry about.
