Time Traveller: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, the latest live-action movie incarnation of Yasutaka Tsutsui's frequently adapted 1969 sci-fi/fantasy novel The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, gives the tale a contemporary spin as Akari, the teenage daughter of the novel's protagonist, Kazuko Yoshiyama, travels back in time from the present in search of a mystery man from her mother's past.

Time Traveller: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is the debut feature of director Masaaki Taniguchi, a longtime assistant to some of Japan's most eminent directors; Kichitarou Negishi, Kazuyuki Izutsu, Yojirou Takita, Hideyuki Hirayama, and Tetsuo Shinohara. The film stars Riisa Naka (female star of Takashi Miike's Zebraman 2: Attack on Zebra City), who provided the voice for Makoto Konono, Kazuko's time-travelling niece, in Mamoru Hosoda's award winning 2006 animated adaptation of the story.

In 2010, Akari Yoshiyama (Riisa Naka) is a high school student who has just passed the entrance examination to Shotoku University, where her mother Kazuko (Narumi Yasuda) works as a pharmaceutical researcher. But Akari's hopes and plans for her new life as a college student are turned upside down when her mother is injured in a car accident. Now in a coma, Kazuko repeatedly mutters "I have to see Kazuo Fukamachi"...

To satisfy her mother's wishes, Akari uses Kazuko's newly completed time-travel potion to leap back to 1972 in search of the mystery man from her mother's past. But she misjudges the date and arrives two years late, in the year 1974. There, she enlists the help of reluctant student filmmaker Ryota (Akiyoshi Nakao), in a race against time to find a man that nobody remembers.

Time Traveller: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time will be released on DVD by Manga Entertainment on the 2nd May 2011.
