So many people are tired of time travel anime... But this one looks different. Not 'travel back in time to stop something bad' but 'travel nack and meet historical figures' so I dunno why a lot of people are complaining... It won't be another BokuMachi or Re:Zero I guess.

Gotta strike that pan while it's hot.

Time travel is the in element right now. I'm fine with time travel just as long as it's written / done well. Not sure if I'll like this anime based on the synopsis but I'll check it out anyway and let it go from there. (":

The hell with people calling ReLife time travel lol. As for this anime I hope people will enjoy it :)

based from the cover i don't think it's gonna be a serious one. but it MIGHT be a serious one like Re:zero.......i hope. when it comes to time travel, usually the plot is stong. but i must say, this year we got a little bit more of time travel anime including Stiens;Gate but still it's out of question. i think they need to lower it a little bit or it might ended up like "Mc went into a game/fantasy world" anime which most people hate. or for more obvious example : *cough* generic harem and ecchi *cough* < this one is the most thing which most people don't want to see in anime these days.

I do not like the character designs.....look so generic....that booby chick, I've seen her in other animes or at least her twins anyway.

Director of Terra E so it might be good but it still looks crappy to me. More happy go lucky shit. Give me more dark shit to balance out the lighter crap.

Business 101
When there is a big hit follow it's example.

Looks cute, hope it's not edgy.

Is that so? Guess that I misread it somewhere. Don't make it a big deal really.

May 24, 2016 7:47 AM by mlcdl

Oh boy, another time travel anime.
Well, the guy who handle it seems have a good history so if its doing well, why not i guess ?

Orange and ReLife do have some interesting impression from those who tried the manga.
Rewrite might be enjoyable.

So far, the trends I've noticed are:
-edgy magical girls
- stuck in parallel world AKA "Isekai"
- stuck in video game world

and now it's Time Travel this time.

Gotta love how Japs and their trends make certain themes get tiring real fast.
ya because they probably studied marketing instead of shit posting online
