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 ...

It literally aired on Saturday morning and is targeted to a child audience. I mainly just watched it while I was eating breakfast.

The educational focus of the show is on electricity and magnetism. There are various relevant experiments that get incorporated into the show, and there are also some short educational segments at the ...
