​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.

Why the high rating? Okay it wasn't the best, but I still enjoyed it until the end! Jikan no Shihaisha had its good and bad moments. I'm a sucker for stories dealing with family, especially tragic ones and I think that's one of the main reasons I was drawn to this anime. Tbh, I had high expectations because I felt that the story had a lot of potential, especially after watching the first episode: Tragic Family Background + Ikemen/Bishounen + Time Eating Monsters + Action + Gambling Elements + Jazzy Music/Hyped OP/Beautiful ED ?! Count me in!

I even said that it was ...

Alright, I'm going to try and write this as spoiler free as possible, and break it down in the categories MAL offers.

Story: 3/10 - The story had a great premise, something similar to D. Gray Man almost. These Chronos Rulers, fight time-eating demons, and there's an overarching plot of getting one character's time back. Sounds great right? Unfortunately, the story lived up to that premise for only the first episode. The rest of the series was a lightning flashforward rush to get to the main point. I think if this series had been 24 episodes, had more interactions like we saw in the first episode, ...

Jikan no Shihaisha aka Chronos Ruler is over. This show made me mad. It was so rife with plot holes and logic issues from the first episode. Nor did it get better with time. Its characters continued to not make sense and to do things out of character constantly. The only good point about this show is MAYBE the character designs. Even the actions scenes were lackluster. I give this anime a 2 out of 10. Surprisingly, I would recommend this anime to someone who doesn't care about continuity at all. This has been your spoiler free but not really review on Jikan no Shihaisha.
