Back to Japanese already! It feels like just yesterday when I started on this adventure to watch a bunch of shows and I've cycled through Japanese, Chinese, and Korean already. This show is quite different from the last Anime I saw (Code Geass) but it does not disappoint in any fashion at all. I loved each and every one of the characters and their personalities were quite humorous. The comedy and humor was very well-done without being too over the top.

A lot of the time travel science stuff was kind of hard to follow, but this image timeline helped me understand it a lot better. It's really awesome how the creators are still creating content for this show that not only stays relevant but also does not disappoint at all. I loved the original 24 episodes, loved the extra OVA episode, thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and even watched the short animated clips online. Overall a fantastic Anime.

On a side note, refer to this blog post if you are curious as to why I am reviewing this show.
