The best time travel anime

Time travel is one of my favorite genres, both in anime and movies and series. In this article, we are going to share the best time travel anime followed by a complete list of them, including OVAs and movie animations.

- 3 Best Time Travel Anime

I want to take this opportunity to mention that my favorite western series are time travel. Its about 12 Monkeys and workers, I recommend watching both. I also recommend Drama Nobunaga Concert.

Steins;Gate - The best anime of all time

Steins;Gate is not only the best time travel anime, but also one of the best animes of all time that dominates the top positions. BAD. A very good anime, but unfortunately it goes unrecognized by many.

The anime has two seasons and a movie, one of the seasons being an alternate view of what passes between two timelines. The anime approaches time travel in a funny way with a lot of suspense and a lot of psychological terror.

The beginning of the anime and its synopsis is a little strange, it tells the story of a crazy young man who suffers from chuunibyou crisis. In their mad scientist daydreams together with their friends, they manage to invent a machine that sends SMS to the past.

The first 13 episodes have a light, funny and a little crazy atmosphere, but then the anime's scenario totally changes to something that messes with the psychological of those who watch, makes the person very tense and makes all the madness of the previous episodes play an important role in the story.

The anime has a perfect beginning, middle and end, without leaving any flaws and with complements of the same quality as the original series. The anime is based on a visual novel computer game that allows different player choices.

Erased - The town where only I am missing

 Hardworking manga author Fujinuma Satoru is plagued by a fear of expressing himself. However, he has the supernatural ability to be forced to avoid deaths and catastrophes by being sent back in time before the incident occurred, repeating time until the accident is averted.

One day, he is involved in an accident that incriminates him as a murderer. Desperate to save the victim, he travels back in time only to find himself an elementary school student a month before his classmate Hinazuki Kayo disappears. Satoru now embarks on a new quest: to save Kayo and solve the mystery of her disappearance.

Erased does not present complex themes, as Steins;Gate does, although Erased is the type of story that does not require much explanation, but rather the appreciation of its characters, scenarios, and the development of the story.

RE:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu

It tells the story of Subaru a normal boy who lives as an Otaku geek who one day is taken to a fantasy world with the power to go back a little in time when he dies. Unfortunately he cannot tell about this power.

Suffering a lot in this world, Subaro falls in love with a white-haired girl with the power of ice who resembles a witch who causes panic in the inhabitants of this world.

Considered one of the best Anime of 2016, this anime is undoubtedly an opinion divider. Some think it didn't have a good outcome and development, while others think it was the perfect anime.
