"I first got exposed to Divergence Eve/Misaki Chronicles through a friend who recommended it. After doing some research, it looked like nothing more than an anime that was full with well-endowed women. I bit the bullet and purchased both the first and second seasons, and I must say it's a fantastic show.
Divergence Eve is a great kickoff point to the series, although the first few episodes are a little heavy on the fanservice(boobs). Give it a bit though, and this season really turns around and by the end it leads perfectly into the sequel, Misaki Chronicles.
The sequel is fairly confusing at first, but if you enjoy the theory of time travel and parallel universes than you will love this. If not, you should still be able to follow what's going on, they explain it pretty clearly in my opinion.
Misaki Chronicles starts off very differently then DE, instead of the fanservice it gets right to the meat of the story and wastes no time. The plot is what really surprised me about this anime, and what compelled me to write a review about it. The character development is very well done, especially in the latter half of the 2nd season. In all I'd summarize this show as being a very heartwarming one, the conclusion of the story is very nicely done and ties up all the loose ends.
If you can look past the large breasted women, you're in for a wild ride. This is a very solid anime and one that I recommend to anyone who doesn't mind seeing a heartwarming story."

"I'm sorry for rating this so low, but I'm writing the review to throw caution to the anime fan that has never seen this series. I have to mention that I love all kinds of animes and in my opinion I wouldn't recommend any anime that you couldn't watch for a second time, or even again and again. I do understand that people like this series, which are the fans who rated this so highly, and I respect that (which is good for them, and money well spent for them)... but unfortunately, I bought this before even watching one or more episodes. I bought both seasons, and feel duped. I thought it would have more of a storyline, more of all that creativity of which anime is. Not a bad anime, but not great neither (IMO). AND in my opinion they could have made two movies instead of two seasons.
Season 1 "Divergence Eve: Complete Collection"
Season 2 "Misaki Chronicles: Complete Collection"
(If they were actual seasons IDK and really IDC).

"Well, I should have known from the cover but the price was soooo good...
The bouncy breasts are so frequent and out of proportion it is just stupid...
The story was not as meaningful as the atmosphere wanted you to believe...
This is one of the few titles in my collection I am sad to have made the purchase on.
I LOVE time travel stories, I always catch time travel movies and books. This one was not a highlight in my time traveling experiences.
In some places the story was so shallow... I felt like I was in a kiddy pool. Not impressive... and the 3D looks VERY much removed from the art.
Truly hard to watch. Completely a fan service anime... and little more IMHO."
Great story line

"As for the story it was great,good enough for me to follow the story too the next series. Watch out though if you don't like big busty women then you will hate this serier all together. Check it out you like it."
