Literally a Saturday morning show ( airing at 7 AM JST ) it tells the story of Mari, a middle schooler, and her friend Waka as they travel to different times in our history and meet some of the most influential inventors in human history while trying to find Mari's dad.

The show is aimed at children so don't expect any mature themes from it, but it's still well made and fun enough that it can be enjoyed by everyone. This also means the show avoid the usual anime cliché tropes and instead gives us a very likable cast of characters who are very fun to read more

"Edutainment" series, ones that both exist to teach and to entertain, are something not everyone enjoys. While I think Time Travel Shoujo would not be completely immune of this from some people, I do think it's possibly the strongest Edutainment series I've seen to date, and could still be something those that generally don't care for them would enjoy.

~STORY~ (7/10)
Believe it or not, this is easily the strongest part of this series, as it actually manages to tell a quite adept story all things considered. While it's not immune of plot holes and logical flaws, as nearly every time travel story is, the other aspects read more

Kids Show. well, adult may be able to relate it because it's basically about the history, specifically on how the Electromagnetic waves or electricity was invented. (woo)

Characters are well-made. but i hope the focused more with them, ...(T_T) like, they put more importance to them.

story line - 7/10. they just focus on the story of those inventors on how they created their inventions. (just read your history/science books then .. lol :D) though ,it's kind of a refresher for me either, well its been a long time since i read my science book., i dont even remeber their works.

voice actors --- well read more

History of physics - the anime. An edutainment show through and through on magnetism and electricity.

Story - 7

Girl's father went missing. Girl discovers father's time travel machine and goes back in time to find her father with the help of her neighbours. Evil organisation is hunting down her father as well. Not the most original plot, but it's a mere device to explore the history of science in every episode, with a real life explanation of how the theory works at the end of the episode after the credits.

The writer made it as close to history as possible, and kept the small details (Things read more
