Hosoda’s breakout film, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time was the first film in history to win the Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year. While the film contains some supernatural elements, the story stays grounded in reality and focused on the relatable human traits of his heroine Makoto Konno. That focus on creating engaging characters has become a Hosoda signature that gives each of his films genuine heart and lasting appeal.
After discovering she can leap through time, high school student Makoto Konno does what any teenager would do. She re-takes tests, corrects embarrassing situations, and sleeps in as late as she wants, never thinking that her carefree time travelling could have a negative effect on the people she cares about. By the time she realizes the damage she’s done, she’ll have to race against time to set things right.
Dedicated to the works of Mamoru Hosoda, the Hosoda Collection is a premier line that celebrates Hosoda’s films and reveals how each one has affected the trajectory of his award-winning career. Featuring everything from stunning extras to exclusive interviews with the director himself, the Hosoda Collection brings fans of animation and film the rare opportunity to follow a director’s career as it unfolds before them.
