ERASED

ERASED

Satoru Fujinuma is a reclusive part-timer with no plans for the future. What sets him apart from the other slackers in his town is an involuntary time travel ability that allows him to jump back several seconds in time in order to prevent accidents and even deaths. As incidents around town begin reminding Satoru of a childhood trauma he'd sooner forget, he finally begins to question what caused his ability to surface and whether or not it's powerful enough to change the past.

Both stories revolve around a character that suffers "jumps" backwards in time, for a short period of time in order to avoid or correct something that's happened. They both try to solve something that's not clear to the main character, and have some thrilling plot.

they differ from one another in the genre, but they are both really good animations and so far, ERASED promises to deliver some really great story development.

They have a lot in common. And both of them are interesting. Although I prefer Erased (my opinion may change with time).

Both try to solve problems by traveling through time. Eventually they both roll in an emotional rollecoaster

Millennium Actress

Millennium Actress

What starts as a simple interview of a legendary actress becomes a journey through the history of Japan. But this is no ordinary lesson; from the perspective of this actress, we learn of the beauty and sadness of love, the pain and regret and joy of the Japanese people and their film, through this film: Millennium Actress.

Both Millennium Actress and Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo are excellent movies with great direction. Both movies are about a chase to fulfill a dream and there's a sprinkle of romance involved. It's just a hunch that you'll enjoy one if you like the other. Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo deals with time travel, and therefore the storyline is exciting to follow. Millennium Actress had the most touching ending that left me to tears.

Okay so I'm just going to come straight out and say it there are several things that is different between The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Millennium Actress.  While The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is more of sci-fi thing about time travel and Millennium Actress is more about looking back on a certain actresses life.  What they both do have in common is that they both are kind of about doing things in pursuit of one's dreams whatever they may be.  Though The Girl Who Leapt Through Time focuses more on the romance side of things Millennium Actress does have some elements of romance.

As Risa and Otani continue to provide endless laughter for the masses, their friendship develops; and with that, so does Risa’s feelings for Otani...

What those two have in common is the issue of long being unaware of someone's feelings, and after realising them, coping with what future brings.

yuujin yuujin says...

Funny school romance including love triangles - that's how I will describe both: Lovely complex and Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo. Main characters are shy and overthrown with everyday activities so basicly they don't notice their love at first. They are just friends and only in sometime friendship starts to grow to something more.

Both of these are positively charming slice-of-life high school romantic anime, with likeable characters with a pleasant blend of humour and drama that feel quite similar. While The Girl Who Leapt Through Time also has a science fiction aspect, I think someone who enjoyed one will appreciate the other.

eaper eaper says...

Both of these series are, although they don't seem to be on the surface, rather romantic. Beyond that, they are slice of life school stories with a touch of comedy.

valondar valondar says...

Both of these films feature a very similar protagonist - a schoolgirl of that certain age who is sometimes a little clumsy. Admittedly the science fiction elements in The Girl Who Leapt Through Time are downplayed while The Cat Returns becomes a full blown and rather excessively quaint fantasy feature; I found The Girl to be by far the better of the two films though The Cat Returns is not without its charms. Not my strongest recommendation but it's possible if you liked one you may enjoy aspects of the other.
