Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this coming of age anime addresses budding teenage romance, friendship, and the pressures of school and growing up. There is mild violence and non-violent injuries, some name calling that ranges from playful to not-so-playful, and some instances of bullying.

Sexual Content

Teasing references to masturbation between the characters. Flirtation and crushes abound.


Makoto's leaps through time often end by crashing into walls or people, with objects falling on top of her. During a game of catch, she gets hit in the face with a baseball. A harrowing near-fatal bicycle accident at the beginning and end of the film. Also, a bullied character exacts revenge on his tormentors with a fire extinguisher before trying to throw it at Makoto's head.


Occasional language includes "damn," "hell", and frequent name calling: "loser," "idiot," "jerk."

Social Behavior

Characters learn to work through their feelings for one another and regarding their future plans. Friendship is upheld through thick and thin.
