This anime is an amazing time travel story. It deals with the butterfly effect on Okarin and the people around him. While it starts out as a trip to a conference between scientists it quickly escelates as events become out of the ordinary. The story is told in only a dozen episodes but in them the viewer follows the protagonist while he fights for order as he is stripped far away from his friends. It shows the peace of the lives people have made for themselves such as Rumiho Amiga in her coffee shop. It shows the test on human patience as failure continues to cage Okabe and his seemingly simple life becomes something he yearns for as his faults seem to exponentially grow after he falls down the rabbit hole that is his scientific discovery. Filled with great pacing that keeps you reeling you wish for a simple conclusion for Okabe and his friends.
