The story follows the two titular girls Escha and Chron, whose contrasting personalities are like the sun and moon. The two girls are from Terminal, a future post-apocalyptic world that's empty and monochrome. The two girls cross worlds and arrive in the present day, which they call Transit. As Escha and Chron experience the light (scenery) and sound (music) of the real world, the future world of Terminal gradually changes into a more vivid world.

Escha Chron feels like an orphan. It is this cute, lonely little OVA with no discernible attachments to any other property or format. It starts in what feels like the very middle of an interesting story with a strong, unique premise, providing very little context and hardly bothering at all with introductions. An experience which is, out of context, just a relaxing CGDGT anime, but in context, absolutely bizarre. My personal theory is that Escha Crhon is an anime which was cancelled early in its production cycle, and instead of trashing what they already had, they released it in the form of the standalone OVA ...

I suppose this anime was planned to have more than two episodes, but it must have been cancelled and they released the two episodes already produced as an OVA.
I even thought it would be a bad anime since the synopsis doesn't catch the attention and is a bit "confusing", that is until I saw the anime.

If this anime was a series longer than 12 episodes, it would probably still be episodic, with two girls who travel back in time, meet someone and help that person with their heartfelt ways. Yes, you remember Natsume Yuujinchou because of that, but it's quite different.

At first I thought Chron ...

Recommendation: A pleasant way to spend an hour if you like cute girls doing cute things, but not essential by any means, and will likely prove boring for those that aren't fans of the genre.

From the way Escha Chron is paced, it feels like 2 episodes of a longer show that was never finished. By the time you finish both episodes, you'll feel like they're just beginning to hint at the plot of the series. Every question you came into the series with (what is Terminal, how and why are the girls crossing between worlds, etc...) will go unanswered, I regret to inform ...
