“Foolish Earthlings, totally unprepared for the effects of time travel! Ahahahah.”- Kang That basically sums up the main plot to Misaki Chronicles, the follow-up to Divergence Eve, a sci-fi anime from 2003.

by Dukeon December 5, 2005
Panda-Z certainly is an odd release. It’s based off a series that isn’t available legally on DVD in the United States (nor does it actually air on TV), so there’s very little cross-promotion to help boost its sales.
