When tragedy is about to strike, Satoru Fujinuma finds himself sent back several minutes before the accident occurs. The detached, 29-year-old manga artist has taken advantage of this powerful yet mysterious phenomenon, which he calls "Revival," to save many lives.

However, when he is wrongfully accused of murdering someone close to him, Satoru is sent back to the past once again, but this time to 1988, 18 years in the past. Soon, he realizes that the murder may be connected to the abduction and killing of one of his classmates, the solitary and mysterious Kayo Hinazuki, that took place when he was a child. This is his chance to make things right.

Boku dake ga Inai Machi follows Satoru in his mission to uncover what truly transpired 18 years ago and prevent the death of his classmate while protecting those he cares about in the present.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Boku dake ga Inai Machi is based on Kei Sanbe's manga series of the same title. The anime adapts the full story of the manga, though it condenses and alters the events that take place in volumes 6 to 8.

The first two episodes were shown at an event on January 5, 2016, at Shinjuku Ward 9. A live-action movie adaptation was released in Japan on March 19, 2016 which also featured an alternate ending. A live-action Netflix TV series was released on December 15, 2017.

its once again the trope of an anime which the opening itself fools you that it has a lot of lore, and before you know it, it ends.
is it that good? its probably not a masterpiece or something. but its good enough. however, once again. its too short. the only case where shows like that work is if the formula is episodic like in kino's journey. there is no reason to get invested with a show with predictable story that ends after episode 12. i understand there is a live action to is as well? well, maybe it works there because its a movie and ...

Mixed Feelings
Erased (the title) the entire meaning of title was changed when translating from Japanese to English no idea why. It’s quite interesting if you would try to search if it relates to anime in some way. But for review I would say its a pretty good story line, the character design animation style suits it well no complains about that
But when you go in deep about the anime I don’t think you can get confused or anything in that it’s pretty simple and straight. Worth a try for some twisted ending but if you trying to find a great anime then you can skip this ...

“'What do you want?'
'I want...
I want a chance to do it all again. To do it... right.' Tears showed in the Old Man's eyes. 'How ever did it go so wrong, Temple? I had so many advantages. So many opportunities. All squandered. All slipped away like sand through a glass. So many disappointments...'
'Most of them you brought on yourself'
'Of course.' Cosca gave a ragged sigh. 'But they're the ones that hurt the worst.”
― Joe Abercrombie, Red Country

Think about the biggest mistake you ever made, your biggest regret that you can never fix no matter how hard you try, the one fuckup that completely derailed your ...
