Summer Time Machine Blues is a delightful teenage time-travel comedy from 2005 and a cult favourite in Japan.
To members of the university Sci-Fi Club, summer means hanging around in the clubhouse with the air-con blasting. When the air-con remote is accidentally broken, the friends are forced to face the full heat of summer.
The next day, after an encounter with a mysterious student, they discover an incredible new addition to their clubhouse: a working time machine. Now they can go back to before the remote broke and cool down again. If only time travel was that simple...
