A high-school girl named Makoto acquires the power to travel back in time, and decides to use it for her own personal benefits. Little does she know that she is affecting the lives of others just as much as she is her own.
Told in three interconnected segments, we follow a young man named Takaki through his life as cruel winters, cold technology, and finally, adult obligations and responsibility converge to test the delicate petals of love.
Why the title is bad parents? I think the fact is the foundation, the starting point of the whole story. I never saw before a movie such as bad parents, like this one. The father blames his daughter about divorce. The mother is ashamed because Jun cannot speak."The neighbors talk about us".- she said during the story. Have a mother on earth who can do this his own child??? I doubt it, but... I open the question. I can not decide the parents really blame Jun about divorce or is just simply the fact when a child blame herself by the reason of the parents' mistakes. The anime is a love story, but the anime built about this episode. Actually, I found the story boring, the movie is very slow. The sketches, the scenery are beautiful. The idea is also good, but the developing is slow and I could not get a rewarding answer in the end. Everybody finds his right one, but what is the point? The characters are evolving, everybody taught something the end of the movie. That is a good point. I think this anime ideal for teens and adults whose love this kind of love stories. Is it ideal for kids? Maybe? So if you like slow, fantasy, teens love stories, you probably like this one too.
