Plot Summary

Agino Jiro escapes the despotic world of the twenty-fifth century by stealing a time machine. He's forced to highjack a car to use as a power source in the twentieth century, and accidently brings a group of high school students along with their teacher with him. They make brief stops during the fire bombing of Tokyo, the Meiji Revolution, and the battle of Sekigahara to escape the Time Patrol agent sent to hunt them down. Their final destination is 1582, where they become guests of Oda Nobunaga, just four days before his assassination. They then must make a hard choice about whether or not to change history.

My Thoughts

When you think about hit anime movies from the 1980s, probably the only ones you can think of are the Studio Ghibli movies. Well, here's a pretty good anime movie from 1986! There are several unexpected twists, some cool battles, and moments of humor. It's kind of like Back to the Future. I think you'll like this movie if you're a sci-fi & history buff.

Notes

  • If you have a Chromecast, via Chrome my videos can be casted to your TV. The cast icon Chromecast icon appears after you click to play a video. (This is supported on Android devices, Windows, and OSX. Not iOS.)
    • Most of the anime in this site was made for old TV resolutions (non wide screen). However, keep in mind that most modern TVs have the ability to stretch the screen. Try that feature if the vertically cropped screen is bothering you. Here's a comparison of standard/stretched screens.
  • Is video not playing? Wait a minute or two; depending on your Internet speed it could take a while.
  • Is video loading slow? The High Quality videos require high speed Internet. You might have better luck with the Low Quality version. If that doesn't help, try downloading the movie so you can play it in full.
