So recently there has been a particular genre that’s been quite appealing to me. And that genre is time travel! There’s just something very intriguing about having the time slip situation.
The most popular time travel anime as of recent is Boku Dake ga Inai Machi. Many people say they didn’t like it because the ending was bad, or there weren’t any mind-blowing plot twists (eg. the people who comment “IT WAS SO OBVIOUS WHO IT WAS”), I was fine with the way it was. It was very, very well directed and easily found it’s place into the classics.
Another Anime would be RE:Life. Ah, you might argue “there’s no time traveling in RE:Life”.. yes, yes, I know that, but the main character gets to relive his high school experience. That gives the same humor as a time travel situation would. RE:Life is yet another show that is fairly simple yet elegant in my opinion.
Last Anime I wanted to talk about is Orange! Orange is still running this season so I can’t say much about it but so far I like it. Yet again, this one isn’t exactly “time traveling” but the girl receives a letter from her future self so, there is that part of it.
I really like this genre but I really hope I don’t get overused. Too much of something good is NOT good:(
