Time Travel Shoujo is based on a 1983 book titled Jishaku to Denki no Hatsumei Hakken Monogatari by Japanese educator Kiyonobu Itakura. It is part of the Hatsumei Hakken Monogatari Zenshuu series which describes the story of various scientific discoveries and inventions throughout history. The 1983 book focuses on discoveries related to magnetism and electricity.



Time travel girl is an education anime. It’s about a girl that travels through time and meets scientist and lean firsthand about their discoveries. The anime is filled with adventure and they tried to make it mysterious. Though in all honesty it’s the kinda of anime that you’ll see in a kid’s channel. Therefore, it was very boring for me to watch. The animation and music were average.

If you’re looking for an education show to watch with the kids this would be it. Otherwise… well I mean if you’re into that sure.
