The story centers on a high school girl named Misuzu Moritani who has the power to stop time for three minutes a day. One day, her observations of the world around her lead to the extremely awkward discovery that her crush and classmate, Haruka Murakami, is immune to her time-stopping powers.
The Fragtime original animation video is directed by Takuya Sato and features animation production by Tear Studio. Fragtime will receive a limited theatrical release in Japan at the Shinjuku Wald 9 cinema and other venues beginning on November 22, 2019.
