- 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 Travalers, I recommend watching both. I also recommend Dorama 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 anime of all time that dominates the top positions in the BAD. A very good anime, but that unfortunately goes unnoticed by many.

The anime has two seasons and a movie, one of which is an alternative view of what happens 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, tells the story of a crazy young man who suffers from chuunibyou crisis. In their daydreams as a mad scientist together with their friends, they manage to invent a machine that sends SMS to the past.

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

The anime has a perfect beginning, middle and end, without fail 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 - Boku dake ga inai machi

 The struggling manga author Fujinuma Satoru is plagued by 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 the time until the accident is avoided.

One day, he is involved in an accident that incriminates him as a murderer. Desperate to save the victim, he goes back in time only to see himself as a middle 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 does Steins; Gate, although Erased is the type of story that does not need 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 like an Otaku nerd who is one day taken to a fantasy world with the power to go back in time a little when he dies. Unfortunately he cannot tell you about that power.

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

Considered one of the best Animes of 2016, this anime is undoubtedly a divisor of opinions. Some think it didn't have a good ending and development, while others think it was the perfect anime.
