​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.

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.

I'm sure we’ve all done it before. We’ve all wished we could turn back time just to fix something we did, or think twice before walking into something terrible, or otherwise take precautions we wish we would've done in the first place. Tragedy and mortifying actions occur all the time. However, in this reality, we know we can never do so, as much as we wish otherwise.

Chronos Ruler is a look into a fictional consequence that can come about of this wish, and it's borderline depressing, less so for the grim reminder and bittersweet message, but more so for the lack of quality in its read more

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 read more

Favored namesake non-withstanding I found Chronos Ruler to be enjoyable despite it's short comings in character depth and plot. Let me begin by saying I absolutely love the music in this show and could watch it over and over again based on that facet alone. The Jazzy rifts in episode aren't like any other anime I've watched yet. The opening has it's hard edge but breaks down into the same jazzy notes and the ending is simply beautiful. I like the color palette used and for the most part the art overall is very good in my opinion. The fight scenes with cards are captured read more
