Originally written in 1967, Tsutsui Yasutaka's sci-fi novel Toki wo Kakeru Shojo has been adapted multiple times in multiple formats. Over 30 years later, director Taniguchi Masaaki and screenwriter Sugeno Tomoe - working with Tsutsui's blessing - brings the story to live-action feature film for the third time with a continuation of the original story. Taking place 30 years later, the 2010 version of Toki wo Kakeru Shojo follows the time traveling adventure of the original protagonist's daughter, played by the 2006 animated spin-off version's lead voice actress Naka Riisa. The new film takes the new heroine to the time period of the novel, telling an independent story that also adds and references to its source material, making it a worthy addition to the franchise rather than a remake of it.
