時をかける少女/The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

[Screenshot]This seems like it should be a lot of stuff I enjoy. Quality art, an interesting conceit, and a number of characters with personality. But somehow it never came together for me, feeling more like a string of contrivances than a story. There’s much to like here, but at times it felt liek it was jsut marking time until the end instead of moving the story forwards, and when things did move, they did so all at once and in exposition instead of action. So the pacing is off to an alarming degree, and for me that killed the fun a bit. But if that doesn’t bother you, and you don’t mind your sci-fi with a significant ladleful of teen school-drama, this isn’t half bad.
