Here are the 10 best time travel anime of all time

In anime, the concept of time travel allows the characters to revisit the past and use the chance to change their past in order to affect the present and future. In some time travel stories, the characters can go back and change the past to fix mistakes or alter events that have resulted in negative or positive outcomes.

Tokyo revengers is a new and really popular shounen that centers around gangs and stuff. If you look at the insane success of the manga, you’d see that, it really is the next big thing along with Jujutsu Kaisen.

The story begins with our protagonist named Takemichi Hanagaki, who is a miserable adult that even gets laughed at by kids. One day, he receives the news of his former girlfriend’s tragic death and her brother, and wonders about how his middle school life went.

Then as he is about to board a train, he ends up falling on the tracks and dies. Interestingly enough, his eyes open yet again only this time he is in the body of his 14-year-old self. Now, is this a new beginning or another cycle of tragedy?

She has the power of resetting the time of anything and everything up to three days. However, even she doesn’t recall when or how she used the ability after the reset has taken place. Be that as it may, Kei also has an ability.

His ability is called photographic memory and oddly enough, this ability complements her ability considering how even if she doesn’t recall anything Kei can still remember everything using his ability. Together they join the service club and seek to help others who are in not so desirable situations.

Nobunaga Concerto time travel anime

History is a fascinating subject but for the young and naive high school student named Saburou, he couldn’t care less about what happened in Japan’s past. It has nothing to do with his life. However, a strange twist of fate makes him go back in time to the Sengoku Era.

In fact, he lands directly in front of the renowned and legendary general Oda Nobunaga. Oddly enough, both of them appeared to have a striking resemblance to each other. Oda Nobunaga, who was tired of running from his retainers, decided to make Saburou take his place. An interesting turn of events indeed.

Now, how shall it proceed? Will Saburou’s view of history change for the better?

She always has to endure lectures from his teachers and obviously favors her time being spent with her best friends instead. But in the middle of all this hustle, she accidentally comes to a grand realization that she has somehow become capable of literally leaping through time.

The story follows her playing around with this power until of course she learns the hard way that every choice has consequences.

05. ReLIFE

ReLIFE time travel anime

In the case of ReLIFE, the main character doesn’t really literally travel back to time. Rather, he is given an opportunity to relive his high school life. In return, he comes to important realizations about life. The protagonist is a 27-year-old supposed neat who doesn’t have a job and gets repeatedly rejected from different companies because of a certain record in his career.

03. Re:Zero Starting Life In Another World

fantasy anime with OP MC

Re zero has gained such a reputation in the past five or so years that it needs not any further introduction. It is essentially the story of a man named Subaru Natsuki.

He gets isekai to a fantasy world but never gets any of the isekai privileges except one, which is that every time he dies, he goes back to a certain checkpoint in the past. A tragic ability indeed.

I’d say the story constantly evolves and now in the later seasons, we are getting a better more defined view of the reality this story takes place in. So, if you haven’t gotten the chance to experience RE Zero’s story, now is as good a time as any.

IMDB(8.2)

Dubbed – Yes

Season – 2(50 Ep.)


02. Link Click

Link Click time travel anime

Here we have a new but legendary Chinese anime that has surprised the anime community in several ways and is now among the top 25 highest-rated anime of all time on my anime list. The plot is complicated or rather it is difficult to explain. So I’d say something you should experience for yourself.

But to give you a short overview, two young boys named Cheng Xiaoshi and Lu Guang work at the Time Photo Studio. A small photography shop that is placed in the back way of a modern metropolis. Throughout the course of the series, they take up several jobs where they use the photos to essentially time travel in order to help their clients.

If there’s one thing for sure, I’d say that this anime would surprise you.

IMDB(8.8)

Dubbed – No

Season – 1(11 Ep.)


01. The Tatami Galaxy

The Tatami Galaxy time travel anime

The Tatami Galaxy is an anime that gives you a somewhat different view of the whole going back in time thing. The main character calls himself Watashi and in each episode, he ends up in a state of intense dilemma when he realizes that he has wasted the past two years of his university life.

But the thing is that each time at the end of the episode, he goes back in time to the point where he had just joined the university. But whatever club he chooses or decisions he makes, he never ends up realizing the rose-colored campus life he always dreamed of or does he?

To put it simply, this anime is a surreal experience and I’d say it will get more appreciation among the older audience than in the younger one.

Dubbed – No
