PDF - The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. One of Tsutsui's best-known and most popular works in his native Japan, The Girl Who Leapt through Time is the story. Editorial Reviews. Review. "The nice thing about Tsutsui is that history and modernity combine The Girl who Leapt Through Time by [Tsutsui, Yasutaka]. Girl Who Leapt Through Time Déjà vu: If the title seems at all familiar to you even though the book's U.S. pub date happened this fall, don't be.

The main character called Makoto is having what she calls a normal day where bad things are consistly happening to her. Through some unexpected events, she finds herself with the power to travel around as she would like through time. She typically uses this power to change small things about her day to make them turn out much better than they would have otherwise but after abusing her power nonstop she starts to find the travelling through time and messing with bangs can have some negative side effects.

A Little Bit Background Info: The manga for "The Girl Who Runs Through Time" and the manga based on the animated movie were actually written by two different people, so it should be too surprising if all the events don't match up exactly. There is also a live adaptation movie starring Riisa Naka the voice of Makoto in the animated movie and it is another take on what happens years after the original novel.

It's a different story from the one featuring Makoto and doesn't appear to connect to the animated movie in any way. But I loved every single second of it - the emotion, characters, plot that kept me guessing, turns and twist that had me literally muttering "ah that's how it is".

Specially in the anime the humour is very well put, visuals are simply beautiful, I became attached to the characters immediately. To her niece, isolated and mistreated by an aunt she believed to be at least half insane, Hogwarts sounded like a kind of paradise and she spent much of her teens fantasising about it. The only other object that Isolt took with her was a gold brooch in the shape of a Gordian Knot that had once belonged to her mother.

Isolt then fled the country. Determined to hide in such a way that her adoptive mother would never find her, Isolt cut off her hair. Isolt left the new colony partly because she remained afraid that Gormlaith would track her, even to a new continent, but also because her journey aboard the Mayflower had led her to deduce that a witch was unlikely to find many friends among the Puritans.

Isolt was now quite alone in a harsh, foreign country and, as far as she knew, the only witch for hundreds if not thousands of miles — her partial education by Gormlaith had not included information about Native American wizards. However, after several weeks alone in the mountains, she met two magical creatures of whose existence she had hitherto been ignorant.

The Hidebehind is a nocturnal, forest-dwelling spectre that preys on humanoid creatures. As the name suggests, it can contort itself to hide behind almost any object, concealing itself perfectly from hunters and victims alike. Its existence has been suspected by No-Majs, but they are no match for its powers.

Only a witch or wizard is likely to survive an attack by a Hidebehind. The Pukwudgie is also native to America: a short, grey-faced, large-eared creature distantly related to the European goblin. Fiercely independent, tricky and not over-fond of humankind whether magical or mundane , it possesses its own powerful magic.

Pukwudgies hunt with deadly, poisonous arrows and enjoy playing tricks on humans. The two creatures had met in the forest and the Hidebehind, which was of unusual size and strength, had not only succeeded in capturing the Pukwudgie, which was young and inexperienced, but had also been on the point of disembowelling him when Isolt cast the curse that made it flee.

Unaware that the Pukwudgie, too, was exceptionally dangerous to humans, Isolt picked him up, carried him to her makeshift shelter and nursed him back to health. The Pukwudgie now declared himself bound to serve her until he had an opportunity to repay his debt.

Over time, a friendship developed between them that was almost unique in the history of their respective species. The Horned Serpent William began to introduce Isolt to the magical creatures with which he was familiar.

They took trips together to observe the frog-headed Hodags hunting, they fought a dragonish Snallygaster and watched newborn Wampus kittens playing in the dawn.

Most fascinating of all to Isolt, was the great horned river serpent with a jewel set into its forehead, which lived in a nearby creek. Even her Pukwudgie guide was terrified of this beast, but to his astonishment, the Horned Serpent seemed to like Isolt.

Even more alarming to William was the fact that she claimed to understand what the Horned Serpent was saying to her. Isolt learned not to talk to William about her strange sense of kinship with the serpent, nor of the fact that it seemed to tell her things.

She took to visiting the creek alone and never told the Pukwudgie where she had been. Webster and Chadwick Boot Isolt was finally reunited with people of her own kind under tragic circumstances. As she and William foraged in the woods one day, a grisly noise not far away caused William to shout at Isolt to remain where she was, as he charged away through the trees, poisoned arrow at the ready.

Naturally, Isolt did not follow his instructions, and when she arrived shortly afterwards at a small clearing she found a horrific sight. Worse, two small boys lay seriously injured nearby, waiting their turn as the Hidebehind prepared to disembowel their parents. The Pukwudgie and Isolt together made short work of the Hidebehind, which this time was destroyed. When the furious Isolt instructed him to help her carry the two small boys home, William threw a tantrum.

The young boys, he said, were already as good as dead.

It was against the beliefs of his kind to assist humankind, Isolt being the unfortunate exception because she had saved his life. The two boys were so ill she was afraid to Apparate with them, but insisted on carrying them home. Grudgingly, the Pukwudgie consented to carry the older boy, whose name was Chadwick, while Isolt carried young Webster back to her shelter. Once there, the furious Isolt told William that she had no further need of him.

The Pukwudgie glared at her, then vanished. The Boot Boys and James Steward Isolt had sacrificed her only friend for the two small boys who might not survive. Fortunately, however, they did so, and to her astonishment and delight, she realised that they were magical. This had ended in tragedy when the family had wandered into the woods and encountered the Hidebehind.

Unfamiliar with the creature and taking it for a common or garden Boggart, Mr Boot had attempted to ridicule it, with the awful consequences that Isolt and William had witnessed. The boys were so seriously ill for the first couple of weeks that Isolt did not dare leave them. To her surprise, when she arrived in the clearing she found a young man by the name of James Steward.

He, too, was from the Plymouth settlement. Having missed the family he had befriended on his journey to America, he had gone into the forest to search for them. As Isolt watched, James finished marking the graves he had dug by hand, then picked up the two broken wands that had lain beside the Boot parents. As invariably happens when a No-Maj waves a wand, it rebelled.

James was sent flying backwards across the clearing, hit a tree and was knocked out cold. He woke in a small shelter of branches and animal skins to find himself being nursed by Isolt. Isolt intended to Obliviate James once he was over his concussion and to send him back to the colony at Plymouth.

Temporal truths: 'The girl who leapt through time'

In the meantime, it was wonderful to have another adult to talk to, especially an adult who was already fond of the Boot boys and helped entertain them while they recovered from their magical injuries. James even helped Isolt construct a stone house on the top of Greylock, providing a workable design, having been a stonemason in England, which Isolt made a reality in the space of an afternoon.

Every day, Isolt vowed to Obliviate James, and every day, his fear of magic wore off a little more, until finally it seemed simplest to admit that they were in love, marry and have done with it.

Four Houses Isolt and James considered the Boot boys their adopted sons.

In the movie though, the main protagonist is Makoto Konno who has the said ability. It also showed her Aunt, Kazuko Yoshiyawa the main protagonist in the book , which also helped her in the story. She has two friends, namely, Kousuke Tsuda and Chiaki Mamiya. The movie has it's highlights, and it was surprisingly entertaining and funny.

I was surprised with the comedy and light side of the story. I thought it would all be drama and science fiction. And to be honest, it made me tear up.

My expectations got the best of me. I was really hoping for a much more tragic accident to happen. And it never came! Even though it hurts so much, I'm a sucker for tragic stories. The confession part made me gasp, though. But still, it did have more depth into it compared to the book..

Book Rating: So the book was actually divided into two novellas. The book was honestly a lot like the movie. Like, really, it's just way too similar.

Which is why I still prefer the film. The scenes were the same and basically, the whole plot. It didn't come as a huge blow at the end, too. The first part I was so reeled into it but it's all just alike, the incidents, the secrets. Just different people portraying them. The movie gave me the feels. The book, eh, not so much.

It's about fears, phobias and a bit psychological. Which is quite interesting since I'm taking up Psychology. Different characters and a whole different story. It's about a girl named It was interesting and amusing to read about it.

All in all, it was very enjoyable watching and reading the same story. Plus another short story. View 1 comment. Jan 10, Hud-c rated it it was ok Shelves: Its a beautiful animated film about a girl who accidentally acquired the power to time travel. Its funny and heart-warming. To me, its an unforgettable movie. I knew then before After researching it on the net that the story in the movie was based from a novel with the same name.

That time I was eager to read about it. But some circumstances shake me 2. But some circumstances shake me away. My interest fade in time for different reasons - thesis, organizational activities, college meetings, midterms, papers, graduation rites, etc. Its just now that I was able to read this. So how does it feel like reading after waiting for almost five years? Its more than okay but I'm not close to actually liking it. Let me clarify things first, the story isn't like what's been told in the movie.

These book has different characters but there's a connection between the two. That is the character of Kazuko Yoshiyama of the book and Makoto Konno of the movie ; the two are actually blood related. In the movie, it wasn't actually stated or revealed that Kazuko had actually time travel before but then she possess a considerable knowledge about time travel itself and explain it to Makoto in the movie.

Okay, that's enough comparison. The book contains two short stories by Yasutaka Tsutsui btw. The first, I mentioned it above. This one is very short and revolves around the subject matter of phobias, trauma and what constitute human fears.

Its somewhat very informative. Overall, it was okay. I do know that the book is not based on the anime film but I guess I'm looking for more. Or this was still too short for me to read. I wanted the first story to be melodramatic like in the movie but it wasn't. Nevertheless, the ending was still heart-warming. I have yet to see the movie, but after reading this, I can't wait to see it.

The only real thing to say is that it is about a rather naive but well-meaning girl named Motoko who discovers that she has gained the ability to jump forward and backward through time. She means to create the best life for herself, without even stopping to think who she might be hurting in the process.

The art is very pleasing to the eye and the story is frantic, humorous and mysterious, yet it works in spite of the re I have yet to see the movie, but after reading this, I can't wait to see it. The art is very pleasing to the eye and the story is frantic, humorous and mysterious, yet it works in spite of the relative lack of information we're provided regarding Motoko's time-leaping ability.

It also tugs on your heartstrings in just the right places, making it hard to keep from feeling sorry for Motoko when the consequences of her actions catch up to her. This is a charming little story, and if the movie is anywhere near as good as this, I know for certain I'll enjoy it. I watched the movie before reading the manga. And it was good I did, because otherwise I would have thought the manga was pretty rushed. The movie was very loyal to the manga, but it changed some things, making them longer - like when Makoto is going back in time over and over again to save Kozuke's relationship with girl, or to save his life.

We get to know more about Chiaki or her aunt in the movie. It is the kind of story that makes the reader have a lot of unanswered questions at the end. Bo I watched the movie before reading the manga. Both versions are worth to check them out. Feb 06, Emilia rated it liked it Shelves: Me recomendaron este libro cuando estaba buscando obras de literatura japonesa. Este libro consta de dos historias.

Ninguna de las dos es notable. La gracia de la protagonista es que es un poco cobarde y que intenta ayudar a su hermano con sus pesadillas. May 11, Amber rated it liked it. The girl leaping through time is a very short story, about pages and the whole book is If you saw the anime movie of it, just do no expect similarities between, the book is more nostalgic and quiet. I like the writing but I would definitely liked the story be larger.

The second part of the book is another story, not really awesome as the first one, but I enjoyed quite a bit. A bittersweet and beautiful story that takes a fresh look at a time-worn pardon the pun! What would you do if you could go back to the past and relive each day or moment over again? What happens when you go too far? There's a movie, I think, based on the same story. I'll have to check that out next, since I really enjoyed the book. Feb 19, May Fisher-Guest rated it liked it. My first book I've read to completion in Japanese!

I enjoyed it but felt the ending was a little sudden, but it had a hopeful finish. Feb 08, Sandra rated it liked it Shelves: I think this is the first time I've read Japanese literature..

The cover is gorgeous, plus I had been wanting to see the anime movie with the same title for ages. So, today I read the book.. I must say I liked both. Though I'd worked out who was in the lab relatively quickly, the twist at the end of the story was ver I think this is the first time I've read Japanese literature.. Though I'd worked out who was in the lab relatively quickly, the twist at the end of the story was very nice. I liked it. The girl's friend mentions the problem might be psychological, and so she does her best to find the source of the problem and solves it.

This story was also quite nice and sends a good message try to confront year fears if you can , but The Girl Who Leapt Through Time was my favourite of the two, because the concept was so interesting.

The friendships were something I also really liked in both stories.

You have a girl protagonist, who is friends with boys, without dating. Nor is she actively looking for a boyfriend.

There is no real romance and, though you can argue that may have to do with the length of these stories, I actually really appreciated this. The friendships itself involve teasing, but also serious moments. It talks about sticking together, helping each other, being there for another. I liked it so much because the friendships seemed so genuine.

Now, I've seen other people mention the use of language in this book. I must admit, it took some time getting used to for me as well. It was very direct, a bit stiff perhaps, a bit bleak. I imagine the Japanese was a lot richer, but I didn't think the writing was bad. I liked it and thought it added something to the story, especially for the twist in first story, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.

There is one thing however that bothered me in the translation. The second story features a protagonist by the name of Masako. For some reason, she's twice refered to as Mariko on page This is odd: This seems to be something they missed during the editing in case it isn't, feel free to point out , and it was quite obvious.

It annoyed me because it seems such an unnecessary mistake. I actually quite liked this, though I imagine some people may be better off with one of the movies, the anime or the manga. I only saw the anime movie, which added quite a bit of humour which cannot really be found in the book, so it all depends on what your preference is.

But this is the original story, and it doesn't take long to read at all, so I'd say: You might be positively surprised.

Mar 21, Ariadne rated it it was ok Shelves: I feel like this is a really difficult book to review because I can't tell if the problems were with the writing itself or the translation. The concepts were interesting in both stories this book actually contains two short stories , and I quite enjoyed Tsutsui's creativity. However, the writing was The prose was stilted and awkward, and the descriptions felt lacking.

I a I feel like this is a really difficult book to review because I can't tell if the problems were with the writing itself or the translation. I also couldn't get a good feel for the characters, and often felt as though the clues were there but I was missing them.

I might be inclined to write this off as me missing cultural cues, but I haven't had this difficulty with other Japanese books and media. I strongly suspect this is one of those works that wasn't translated well, and is missing a lot of the original elegance and nuance.

This book was originally published in Tsutsui's native Japan and is his fifth work to be translated into English.

When I was initially offered this book to review I wasn't sure whether to accept as it didn't sound like the sort of thing I normally read. However, I love giving new authors a try and the very pretty cover did grab my interest, so I thought I'd give it a try. I have t This book was originally published in Tsutsui's native Japan and is his fifth work to be translated into English. I have to say that on finishing it, I wasn't really sure what to make of the book.

I'm not a big fan of short stories which this volume seemed to be, as I find them too brief and insubstantial. Plus often just as your interest is piqued they finish and you're left feeling wholly unsatisfied.

With her new-found abilities she is able to help her friends when they need it but is determined to find the shadowy figure who she believes is responsible for her time-travelling powers. The premise of the story was interesting enough but on the whole I just didn't find that the story went anywhere. Not enough time was spent on developing the characters fully which meant that I couldn't engage completely with them and I didn't care enough about what was happening to them.

At times I also found that the narrative was a little stilted but that may have been due to the language being transcribed from its original form and some of the nuances and meanings being lost. There are some deeper issues underlining the very simple story, such as warnings about the future and the outcome of scientific advancements, however I found the general storyline puzzling and struggled to remain interested about what was actually happening throughout.

The second story in the book is called 'The Stuff That Nightmares Are Made Of' is about another young girl called Masako who tries to confront her fears, at the same time as helping her little brother who's scared of strange things he sees at night.

Yet again I found this one a strange and although I liked the general message of overcoming your fear by facing it head on and therefore being able to overcome it, I would have liked the story to have been developed a bit further. Saying that, I did prefer it out of the two stories contained within this volume, so I'd even go so far as to say read this one first and give it a go. Nov 20, Savanna rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book wasn't what I expected, and it took some getting used to, but in the end I found I really liked it.

Like many readers, I was drawn to it because I enjoyed the anime adaptation so much, and for others considering it for the same reason I have to say that it's very different.

For one thing, the book is actually two novellas, and only the first is what was adapted in the film.

This isn't made very clear in the edition of the English translation I read or at least on the website where I bought the epub. The first novella I would give four stars on its own.

The plot is significantly different from the film's, and it's hard for me to say if my preference for the anime negatively affected my opinion of the novella.

Still, it's very unusual and intriguing, and also quite heartbreaking—which is impressive given its brevity. It has what I think is a masterfully subtle touch of sci-fi, fleshing out the sci-fi elements just enough to give them plausibility but keeping it mysterious and thought-provoking.Feb 08, Sandra rated it liked it Shelves: However, Gormlaith herself had attended Hogwarts, and told Isolt a great deal about the school.

I understand where they came from, and why, and surprise, surprise--they're still there. There was a rumour, never confirmed by her family, that, unlike her sister Martha, Rionach was born with the ability to speak Parseltongue and that she was determined not to pass on Slytherin ancestry into the next generation the American branch of the family was unaware that Gormlaith was not the last of the Gaunts, and that the line continued in England.
