Time Traveling Animes?

Okay, so I recently finished "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" anime movie, and really enjoyed it. I was wondering if there were any other good animes out there that mainly focused on the time traveling aspect.

Preferably a newer anime with a good plot...

EDIT: A manga is always good too...

Millennium Actress...kind of . Not "real" time travel, but fictional time travel used to portray emotional realism...you know, just see it, it'll make sense afterwards...
Noein...kind of . More dimensional travel to future versions of reality...
Zipang - completely and totally about what you would do if you traveled through time...
Now and Then, Here and There - they do travel through time in the first episode, but it is not the main focus of the series (think, Inuyasha, only not a silly little kids story).

Thanks for the suggestions.
I actually saw Millenuim Actress last week and it was such a masterpiece.
I'll have to check out the other three.

Second Noein. Really great series - time travel is not central to the plot as it is in TGWLTT, but it's important.

For a curve ball, try Asatte no Houkou - you'll understand after you watch it. It's short, and very much overlooked for just how great it was.

Haruhi Suzumiya often deals with time travel issues. Rather interesting theory of time travel I think too.

Inuyasha also has time travel in it. There may be a little dimensional shifting there but modern day to the feudal era is seems like time travel to me... xD

They are also finishing up the series this season, so now is as good as time as any to start watching.

Kurozuka has time travel with a vampiric twist.

Immortality is a common theme in anime. If that constitutes "time travel," there are shows like Mnemosyne.

Glad to see you picked Noein; it's one of my favorites.

Well I don't agree, its so not true. Immortality makes you eternal so basically you take ur due time and live ur normal/abnormal age. So if a vampire been there from 1400 to 2100 so it is actually 700 years old and so doesn't skip anything. Thats solemn eternal life is the bane of its existence in each story, don't sell it short.

Time travel means it jumps from 1400 to 2100 skipping 700 years while age n other attributes remain the same from which time the jump was initiated.
See the difference mate...cheers!

I want to say Tatami Galaxy, though it's basically just looping the same specific time frame over and over.

I know the difference. I was asking the OP whether he/she might be interested in that genre as well.

Kurozuka is more akin to a time-travel show, though Mnemosyne obviously isn't.

Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, the biggest part of cast is send 10 years into the future. Not from the begining though.

Green Green, Midori came from future to see the guy she loves. Back in other life they made a promise again but sadly were reborn with 10 decades difference. The guy doe not remember her and show has a lot of fanservice.

Inuyasha - Kagome constantly travels through time.

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu - yeh, they also travel a lot though didn't like series much myself... but the movie was good.

I guess Fate/stay Night can count, though I think movie deals with thise theme better but without playing the game or watching TV seriess, you will be confused since it skips a lot of stuff that was covered in series.
