October 21st is Back To The Future Day! Welcome to the future! Wait, where are the hoverboards and pizza hydrators? At least we have smartphones, electric cars, and of course time-traveling anime! In celebration of this special day, we’re going to showcase some of our favorite anime with time-traveling themes.
What list about anime and time traveling would be complete without Steins;Gate, a series all about time travel? From government agencies/conspiracies to Akihabara maid cafes to “DeLorean Mail” (D-Mail), this series is one that will make you laugh, cry, and swoon with its amazing take on time travel. And to think it all starts from a weirdly microwaved banana… Just watch it!
What do you get when you have two different dimensions in the future that need a key person from the past to make their reality come true, so they send back warrior representatives to get that person? Anime Terminator? No! You get a thrilling race against time and multiple dimensions known as Noein!
Aoba is your typical, everyday type of high schooler. That is until he is chased down by mech suits and taken to the future. It’s your typical, everyday type of growing up story that involves intense giant robot wars, wormholes to future, and interstellar battles.
Most of Dragon Ball Z doesn’t involve time travel (although it has space travel and travel between dimensions); however, one of its most famous characters, Trunks, comes from the future to the past to prevent a world-devastating catastrophe. By stealing his mother’s time machine, this purple-haired, sword-wielding Super Saiyan makes it to past and alters the timeline permanently.
Share with us your favorite time-traveling anime scenarios! As always, you can be sure to watch all these wonderful shows on FUNimation.com!

Official Series Synopsis -
The creators of High School DxD bring you a ridiculously raunchy romp through a world filled with mechs powered by perversion! The earth is under attack by the alien Penguin Empire and only heroes able to produce Hi-Ero particles need apply. Piloting the Daimidaler mechs are master pervert Kouichi with his take-no-prisoners libido and Kiriko, a girl who can level cities just by thinking of her boyfriend. It’s up to them to dodge the massive front tails of the filthy penguin commandos and go toe to toe with rival mechs powered by a girl who loves penguins a little too much. Experience an overflow of Hi-Ero power with brave Daimidaler!

We are upgrading all three releases of Free! -Eternal Summer- to include the OVA, a fourteenth episode of the series that was not broadcast on Japanese television or on simulcast! This will affect the Premium Edition, Limited Edition, and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack. All three will now be available February 16, 2016 (but pre-order now)!
We’ve been working hand-in-hand with our licensing partners in Japan to be able to make this change for you, and through collaborating together, we are now able to put the series and OVA together. This is a new opportunity that hasn’t been available before, so we’re excited to be bringing all of Free! -Eternal Summer- to fans in one single package.
What does this mean for you? If you’ve pre-ordered the series already, no sweat—your order will remain the same, but your home video release will now include the extra content. If you haven’t pre-ordered yet, you can do so now—pre-order before the release date and you’ll also be entered to win some great prizes! (If you’ve already pre-ordered, you’re already automatically entered.)
The OVA is really pretty special—an all-out water gun fight full-length episode with the Iwatobi and Samezuka boys, full of hilarity and drama and wet swimmer boys and… maid outfits? Who’s going to come out on top?! Suffice to say, if you’re a Free! fan craving more content after the end of the TV series, you won’t want to miss out on this one.
