Time Travel Grill Girl

TTG is about a high-school girl (who else in this era) which lives with her mother in a pastry shop whilst her dad on a work or journey or something. Later on when her friend comes over in search of knowledge about cakes, her necklace which was given to her by her dad, starts to shine and she gets teleported into the past.

So far the idea was normal, and would stay normal if the MC would move into an old pastry shop to learn the ancient dough reciepe and eventually make an ultimate cake with her friend...

But no... oh boy how we were wrong...

She instead met William Gilbert who is the father of electrical engineering... so far at this point, everyone who has some kind of general show knowledge from their young years or at least around 100 IQ immediatley turned off their TV/video because they knew what was comming.

The show is technically a forced history lesson, a Doctor Who without The Doctor, William Gilbert without his electricity.

"So the Japs want to teach their citizens some history what is wrong with that?" Everything. If this came out 16 years ago, it wouldn't be so bad. But considering the state of todays anime industry, most things coming out of this show won't be informations but hugging pillows of Nikola Tesla.

That's not even everything. It all seems like that author looked on wikipedia for some popular electricity related inventors and that was it.
My point is that MC straight up tells WG that she is from the future, then proceeds to casually talk to him about future, which is followed by "oh but in our age this is a general knowledge" to some theorem he is yet to prove.
I am no time traveler nor scientist but I think that at this point it's surprising that when she came back, the world wasn't run by Hitlers child.
Since her dad IS a scientist, he could at least tell his own spawn about butterfly effect before giving her a time traveling necklace.
This is concerning since the show's time traveling idea is that when someone comes back, the person can do any change to the past instead of him destined to do the change resulting in nothing in the future.

Watch at your own risk.
