    • A bittersweet fantasy romance of youth
      Koji Aiba, a university cram school student who lost his mother to illness, despairs that “the world doesn’t always reward effort.” Until one day, all of a sudden, time stops moving. People, automobiles and all things become motionless. Alarmed by the strange phenomenon, Takashi runs out of class and into the street where he meets a young girl who, like himself, isn’t frozen in time. She is Tokine Shinomiya, and every day at 12:15 for one hour, she and Takashi experience what they begin to call “stoppage time.” At first, they revel in the luxury, but gradually come to realize that it hides an important secret.
