​Like many in her class, Koyuki Honda looks forward to her graduation ceremony. However, while her peers have family to attend, Koyuki has no one, as her only family—her brother—died years ago. While visiting his grave, she meets two brothers named Kiri and Victor Putin chasing a strange creature. They try to assure her that they are just actors shooting a movie; Victor, however, piques Koyuki's curiosity about the old legend of the clock tower at the cemetery: if you make a wish under the clock tower at midnight during a full moon, time will turn back, allowing someone to reclaim what they have lost.

Deciding to make her wish, Koyuki learns the horrifying truth: the legend is a ruse for time demons called "Horologues" to steal humans' time. As they are drawn to regrets, Victor uses Koyuki as bait to lure a demon there. Kiri and Victor explain that they are Chronos Rulers, warriors who fight against the Horologues using the "Oath of Time"—an item allowing them to speed up or slow down time.

With the demon destroyed and the crisis averted, Koyuki is able to go on her way free from regrets. However, she is not the only human with sorrows. The two boys must continue to hunt down Horologues in order to keep humanity safe.

First I'll start off by saying im not sure why this series garnered such bad reviews and low scores. Maybe it was something lost in the original sub i myself watched it in the dub version so maybe they fixed alot of the issues that the original viewers found with it. But personally ive watched alot of crappy anime and this is far from that. It has an original idea and presents it in a decent fashion. My advice to anyone on the fence go ahead and give it a try yeah sure there are some slow parts but overall the show is good and ...

Mixed Feelings
jikan no shihaisha is definitely lacking in it story content

story: the reason why i gave the show a very low rating that it wasn't for the fact that it bad it more so that it was missing a lot thing for the story hold no merit in it value although the idea behind sound awesome but could not live up to it name and i don't mean by the manga but as the anime itself now i don't read the manga so i do not know what it mention it it but i do know that it lacking in the storytelling department ...

Nothing about Chronos Ruler works or is even remotely interesting. Generally, I have a long-winded and over-analyzed opening introspective on even the lamest anime I review, but I feel it's much better to cut to the chase with this one. It's a Frankenstein's Monster of overdone anime tropes, concepts, humor, tone, and personalities that have been done over and over while providing nothing resembling a single original thought of its own. Chronos Ruler is the festering junkie with halitosis and three undiscovered types of hepatitis waiting behind dumpsters at night to rummage through whatever ideas haven't been used recently by better shows.
