Long since abandoned and all but forgotten by the mainland, the people of the island are ready to give up hope. But then, a young man named Setsuna who calls himself a "time traveler" washes up on the island. Setsuna has lost all of his memories except for a certain mission that he must fulfill.

I give it a 6.5-7. Potential spoiler alert- So the basis for this anime is a story about a time traveler. Like all time travel storys its full of bugs or ..how do i say things that dont really add up or make sense. Its a pretty good story and doesnt really start to get really good till about episode 6, 7, 8. The ending felt really short, but its a short 12 episode series.I heard there was a VN, but i havent read it. All in all id say if you have an open mind and are a fan of science fiction or a anime kind of like seins gate you might enjoy this. It was okay and had a happy good ending i guess, but it does kinda mess with your head. The endings kinda like a big WTF when you realize the big picture of what was going on. What else can i say, besides theres alot of things the anime leaves out and never really fully explains ever. And from what i understand neither does the VN The main big problem i have with this is the things you kinda gotta look past to even enjoy the anime i guess. Like they dont explain the little plotholes or bugs with the time travel stuff, but it is what it is, Decent story for what its worth but it is kind of messed up also in some aspects. Kind of like futurama or the terminator series.
Here’s a convoluted story about time warping/traveling that doesn’t do the trope any justice whatsoever. It tried to be something it couldn't be and that’s pretty disappointing, i dropped this at episode 10 where the 28 year old looking (i dont know if they brought his age up i cant remember) main character bangs the underaged female character (oh wait, shes actually 23? nonetheless she thinks shes still 17 and still looks underaged so its still weird) the story is slow paced but picks up half ways in as if they were like “shit nothings happened we gotta ramp it up and throw in as much shit as possible” and boy did they ever. So much was happening that me and a lot of other people (thanks comments) were having trouble following along 100% they tried to make it mysterious but failed. They also left some unanswered questions which i dont know if it was intentional for the quote on quote mystery or if they just forgot half way through. EIther way it’s just a hot mess. It does a nice soundtrack so there’s something good to say about it? the character design’s were basic, bland and boring too but the background art was pretty nice and overall animation was nice. But regardless this show is nothing more than lolicon bait with some fanservice. With that being said, i think i’d enjoy this show a little bit more if it werent for the loli looking characters and a main character who didn’t look in his late 20s.
MAY CONTAIN WHATS CONSIDERED AS "SPOILERS" Very happy ending! Had some twists at the ending, unlike other anime you see now a days. The protagonist actually bangs the loli heroine, or should I say she actually banged him *smirk face*. So points for a non beta protagonist. Some questions left unanswered like about him having to do some things to people (it's in ep1, vague for no spoilers), but other than that great drama and romance watch!
There is no discussion yet for this series.
