With 2016 being the tenth anniversary of the original release he The Girl Who Leapt Through Time anime adaptation, Kadokawa brought out their edition of it which had a number of good features to it. Then back in 2018, as part of the push with other Mamoru Hosada works coming up, Kadokawa put together a new priced-down release to try and draw on some additional sales for it. It’s scheduled for a July 4th, 2018 debut where the DVD is priced at 1,833 yen while the Blu-ray is priced at 2,759 yen. It looks like the extras for this release is kept to the audio commentary that was produced for the 2007 release.
Now, Kadokawa is back once again with a new Special Price version for the release where the DVD is priced at 1,800 yen and the Blu-ray at 2,700 yen once again. It maintains the traditional artwork a well and is basically a new SKU to keep the property in print at a low price but shows the “legs” that this thing has still.
Check out our review of the feature film.
Plot concept: After waking up late, flunking her pop quiz, embarrassing herself on numerous occasions, and starting a fire in her home economics class, high school student Makoto Konno figures she’s just having one of those days. Just when she thinks she’s made it through, the brakes on her bike malfunction putting her on a collision course with a speeding train. The life-ending accident would have been the perfect end to the worst day ever, but the strangest thing happens—she leaps backward in time.
After unlocking her new ability, Makoto does what any teenager would do. She re-takes tests, corrects embarrassing situations, and sleeps in as late as she wants, never thinking that her carefree time traveling could have a negative effect on the people she cares about. By the time she realizes the damage she’s done, she’ll have to race against time to set things right.
