A  Noein: To Your Other Self Review
Noein: To Your Other Self  Episode Count:  24 episodes

Noein: To Your Self is one unique science fiction anime series watch. The charater designs are rather funny-looking because they can appear almost comics-like but much more bright and colorful. The anime series is driven by alternate realities. Haruka Kaminogi the lead character is a girl that has died in many of her realities and in a present reality that diverges in the endless flow of parallel dimensions , Yuu Gotō 
 , a friend of has decided he wont be like the other him's and letting her die. He'll try evrything, so she survives and lives.

The animation of Noein: To Your Other Self was such a surprise from the beginning. It's a styles that greatly differs from many animes out there and would be a big plus for any anime fan. Then the story itself is a strong one and actually with Noein: To Your Other Self was first introduced to the concept of parallel: alternate realities in this anime.

       See: Parallel Worlds by Michio Kaku (a Book)

Noein: To Your Other Self has a lot of twists and turns in reference to its story. A lot of what appears one way omes out not being what it is. This anime is very serious and full of the feel of urgency. Even so like in most animes it does contain small moments of humor. Really a recommended watch overall. For those anime fans who like Science Fiction.

Overall: Amazing Watch!

Genre: Science Fiction, Romance
Topics: Parallel/Alternate Realities

Anime Soundtrack Side-note: The Opening Theme song is  "Idea" by eufonius  has to be one of the biggest melodic and most beautiful opening songs in anime out there. Really would cause you to become speechless. Wonderful!

The Ending Theme is "Yoake no Ashioto" by solua which find has a playful sound to it and almost surreal. Goes well with Noein: To Your Other Self.
