iAX: "Time travel stories are always an interesting bunch. With so many different potential outcomes thanks to the theory behind the butterfly effect, the potential to create incomprehensible plots and time paradoxes is astounding. Case in point? Take a look at Ashton Kutcher’s the Butterfly Effect if you haven’t seen it already. So when I first heard that Mamoru Hosoda, who was previously only known for his work on the lackluster Digimon: the Movie before Summer Wars, I was a bit apprehensive. Would the film live up to the expectations that people placed in front of me calling it “one of the best Japanese animated films released to date,” or would it fall under my expectations and get lost thanks to its time travel storyline? As such, I had waited until just recently to experience the joys of the film, in hi-def might I add, and I’m glad I did."
