This story is a national treasure in Japan, adapted here as a crisp clean animation. Makoko, a high-school student, discovers through a near-death experience that she can travel back through time. So she passes the quiz she once failed, guzzles the food she once missed. But soon her adventures become more serious as she sees tragedy coming that she might prevent.
