Not What I Was Expecting....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Time Traveller - The Girl Who Leapt Through Time [DVD] (DVD)
Due to its consistently high ratings and rave reviews I decided to buy this movie. I really enjoyed the anime version of TGWLTT so I was hoping this would provide me with the same emotions and heart as the anime. I was actually fairly disappointed. I haven't watched much Japanese live action cinema, so maybe that's where I went wrong, but I just couldn't connect with the over-the-top characters much. I found the storyline predictable in parts, and completely odd in others. I didn't feel any sort of relationships between the characters either, and at the end of the film I just shrugged. It was OK, but not memorable, and not really worth a second watch.
