This is actually a sequel based on the original novel "Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo." In the movie, Makoto's aunt, Kazuko, is actually the protagonist from the original novel.

Theatrical live action movie based released in 1983. Second live action movie released in 1997. There is unconfirmed information suggesting an NHK drama was made in 1972.

Winner of the "Best Animation Film Award" at the 11th Animation Kobe (2006)

As Makoto is running down the hill, after realizing that she has one time leap left (01), her shirt reads the digits 01. This is the amount of time leaps she has left.

In the short scene when Kousuke is prepares to swing a bat, he hums a tune from the old Nintendo game called "RBI Baseball" before getting pegged with the basketball.

Winner at the 2007 Seiun Awards for Best Media of the Year.

When Makoto learns through a text message that Kôsuke is going to borrow her bike, he enters "7-2-4" while pronouncing "Ma-ko-to" on the anti-theft in order to unlock the bike. Those figures refer to the numbers of the "rank" of those syllables in the Japanese kanas (hiragana & katakana). Rank 7 = MA-mi-mu-me-mo ; Rank 2 = ka-ki-ku-ke-KO ; Rank 4 = ta-chi-tsu-te-TO.

The background piano music when Makoto acquires the ability to leap through time is from J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations, BWV 988. Specifically, the music preceding her first time leap is the "theme" ("Aria," a sarabande) and the time leaping music is the first of the 30 variations.
