Yojouhan Time Machine Blues takes place during a sweltering midsummer day when Ozu, the protagonist's "terrible friend," accidentally drowns the only remote control for the air conditioning unit in their apartment. While they discuss their predicament with Akashi, the protagonist's raven-haired love interest, a sloppily-dressed time-travelling student arrives from 25 years in the future, prompting the protagonist to borrow his time machine in an effort to snatch the remote control from the past before it breaks.

The sequel novel was inspired by Makoto Ueda's 2001 stage play Summer Time Machine Blues. The stage play was adapted into a live-action film in September 2005.

First of all, let me be clear here, this show is not a sequel for The Tatami Galaxy, but I highly recommend you to watch it to get the most out of this show. This review will be written in a way that assumes you have watched The Tatami Galaxy.

This show was essentially a side story in the universe of “The Tatami Galaxy”, and for many fans of that show, this would be extremely nostalgic, seeing the likes of Watashi, Akashi, and Ozu back at it with their ridiculous shenanigans. At its core, this show revolves around the same aspects as the Tatami Galaxy did, ...

Honestly, going into the tatami galaxy, I wasn't really interested. But, in a matter of seconds, I regret what I say. The tatami galaxy is awesome. It brings up a unique idea, and instantly gets the person watching in love with the show. The tatami time machine blues is no different.

The tatami time machine blues is a much more different change from season one. It introduces a different idea, compared to the first season (if this is a sequel). It's a really simple and fun idea. The writers know what they're doing, because this was incredibly entertaining. The concept, humour, etc.

Honestly, I was pretty disappointed ...
