The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (Toki wo Kakeru Shōjo (時をかける少女, literally "Time-Soaring Girl")) is a science fiction novel by Yasutaka Tsutsui. It tells the story of a high-school girl who accidentally acquires the ability to time travel. Originally serialised in seven installments in two of Gakken's secondary school student-aimed magazines, beginning in Chūgaku Sannen Course in November 1965 and ending in Taka Ichi Course in May 1966, and first published as a book in 1967 by Kadokawa Shoten, it has gone on to become one of Tsutsui's most popular works and has been reinterpreted in other media many times, the most famous internationally being a 1983 live action film directed by Nobuhiko Ōbayashi and a 2006 traditional animation film directed by Mamoru Hosoda.

TOO GOOD! I didn't find it messy at all! :) I followed the time travels carefully and it was pretty clear.
I do have mixed feelings about the 'development'. Regarding the big "secret".

Little tricky to follow the time travel sometimes, but without too many other difficult plot points it manages to make a mess and then clean it up in a satisfying way. Its a very good watch
