Nearly half the population of Sakurada, a small town near the Pacific Ocean, has some sort of unique power. These powers range from being able to enter the mind of a cat, to resetting the world back to a certain point in time in the past. There is a group known as the "Kanrikyoku" that controls and monitors the use of these powers. Asai Kei and Haruki Misora work for their school's club called "Houshi" club, which execute any missions received from the Kanrikyoku. Misora has the ability to reset the world back 3 days. This means that all events and any memory of the past 3 days that "could have" happened, never happened. Kei has the ability to "remember" the past. Even after Misora uses her powers to reset the world back 3 days, Kei will retain those 3 days in his memory. Combining their powers, these two solve missions issued by the Kanrikyoku.
At first glance this series seems to be some sort of hybrid between Monogatari series and Charlotte. Yup I have no doubt, this is definitely really similar with Charlotte.. I mean, super power, time leap... Also Charlotte is a lot easier to understand. LOL
Anyways, Man, this anime is heavy. And it's so far turning into detective case. This anime is so hard to understand but i don't know why i find it really really interesting. This one is different, but in a good way and it's really worth watching.
I just think that the problem why this
anime is underrated is like they rely heavily on the dialogue and character interactions. Compare to shows like Monogatari and Charlotte, this show's dialogue is really, just plain and boring.
The pros, is the plot speed by too fast. Personally for me I hate slow paced anime. I love the potential this anime has! It's giving me mystery feels. There area a lot of mind games, detective work, unique story with twist, gradual character development and philosophical ideas.
Still hoping for more!
PS: Kei is so freaking smart he also definitely a good strategist and motivator.. The way he handle all the cases since episode 1. Damn I like this MC so so much.
Tbh I'm trying really hard to like this anime. Believe me I am. But it's so hard for me to like this anime when everything is all over the places. The story and plot is good but the way they are presenting it is really hard to understand. When I first read the synopsis I got really excited. But it hasn't lived up to the expectations.
But I have hope it's a 2 cour anime so maybe the story and everything will pick up. But as 5 episodes have currently aired (when I'm writing this review) I don't see sagrada reset worth watching. It's just an
anime that tries too hard to be complicated. The characters are weird and don't behave like real people. The story is messed up.
So should you watch it ? : I think putting it on a ptw list and then when it ends binge watching will be good if it gets a good score like 7.50-10.00.
GioGio's Bizzare adventure part 5 is looking great... oh wait
It seems like people judged this anime pretty quickly by the first 2 episodes (that I rather call introduction) saying that the characters are lifeless and the show overall is boring and they drop it or just scores it with a really low score. that's why this show has a 6,70 rating atm. I will not lie, the characters were lifeless yes, yet "Boring" isn't necessarily something bad, this just states the difference between average users that likes boobs bouncing around, the same thing that happened before with ACCA, and I said something about it, that
the show was difficult to "eat" and this is the same case.
as for the Characters being sort of lifeless there was a reason after all, But I'm gonna talk about it when I reach "Characters" topic
Superpower school based anime is not a new thing, it might be overused a lot, but does that prevent the anime for being innovative? no, in fact, there might be overused themes on anime, but the execution of it is what decides if it is worth or not.
so we have the town of Sakurada (or Sagrada) were people has abilities, our Main Character has the power to remember anything that has passed no matter what, the Main Heroine of the show, has the power to go back by 3 days in time, this power is restricted with some rules that prevents her of "spamming" her power (this means that we won't have convenient power spamming like Subaru Natsuki did in Re:Zero, this also opens twists that can't be erased with Resets)
as for where the plot is going atm is quite difficult to say, since there is 24 episodes the plot might have changes, but for the moment, our Duo is trying to fix mysteries, trying to understand their feelings, trying to be someone in life, trying to save people, etc.
as an addition of the power source, its only stated that only people in Sakurada has powers, if they leave town, they will forget about their powers
David productions did have some Issues with JoJo part 4 when it comes to budget in Animation, tho, the animation overall on this show is quite good enough for a 2 cour anime, haven't seen anything that bothers me enough to dislike it, so I think it is doing well
Op and ED are both good on their own, Voice acting is a bit "lifeless" on the first 2 episodes, but it gets better as they head on, in fact, I rather have normal voices than your typical super power harem were everyone overreacts with anything (boobs or nudity) and makes a damn mess around because of it
this is the point where many people gave up on the show, because they can't stand characters that are "lifeless" during 2 episodes, but guess what. that's part of the development, this is because our characters wants to become someone on life, trying to find what they are good in.
You know, when you have abilities and you can do whatever you want with them, you might be happy, but will it be forever? this reminds me of Mob Psycho 100, Mob was humble about his powers, he was completely right, without his powers, he ends being nothing, that's why he fought in order to find what he is good at without depending on his powers.
You can't stick with the same thing on your life, sometimes you need to explore other options, because you won't know when something will harden your life preventing you from what you were doing
I will go back again with being difficult to "eat". The slow pace and "lifeless" characters are something you have to deal with, but when it starts developing you'll know it was completely worth it, I'm pretty sure that this show will have interesting twists and events that are going to bring out more attention
this show was quickly underrated, I know people wants something innovative, but quiting after 1 or 2 episodes? oh for fuck sake, give me a break, you won't know nothing unless you watch it all, assuming that the whole anime will be the same for 24 episodes is just plain lunacy!
For now, I hope that the anime continues its way and gets better and better within the time, it sure has potential, believe me, and don't trust guys that says it is boring and lifeless when they have a lot of hentai on their list (make your homework people)
Every season has its crop of shows that just simply aren't up to snuff, and Spring 2017 is no different. Sakurada Reset, however, manages to blow all the other bad shows out of the water with just how awful it is. It attempts to lure you in with a fairly interesting gimmick about time travel and super powers, but once you actually start watching it's all downhill from there.
Episode 1: Right away you can tell that something is wrong with this show. For one, the characters do not feel like actual people. You can count the amount of time that the MC blinks on a
single hand, and all camera shots are static without any feeling or depth to them. The way the characters robotically say their lines as if reading off of a script provides no entertainment for the viewer. The episode drags on endlessly due to its slow pacing and massive amounts of just dialogue. However, the first episode is just the tip of the iceberg.
Episode 2: Reset was fairly mediocre during its first episode, with the concept of different abilities carrying the show quite heavily. But even an interesting concept can't carry the show through the absolute garbage it's about to slog through. The previous problems of the first episode only intensify, and often there are moments where absolutely nothing happens and the two characters are just staring at each other in silence. Two new characters are brought in whose powers are extremely plot convenient and lazy. Logic that no human would ever think of is used to solve the episode's problems, all while the main characters stare blankly into space with no hint of emotion. The convoluted plot progression is extremely hard to follow and makes for a confusing watch. Not to mention that the episode is horribly paced and drags on like the previous episode.
Does Reset have the potential to pick itself back up? Honestly at this point it's extremely hard to tell. Even as someone who has begrudgingly followed the show for the past four weeks, I still don't know what exactly this show is and what it wants to do.
At some points you will start laughing not because of what's happening in the show, but rather the absurdity of the character's decisions and the irregularity of the show's art and animation. As such, I'd only advise watching this show if you're extremely starved for a series about time-travel and/or you're a masochist who likes watching bad shows. If my thoughts on this show change in the coming weeks I'll come back and revise my opinion, but that possibility is extremely unlikely.
Episode 6 edit: Hasn't been as garbage as the first two episodes, but still has not improved enough to change my opinion.
