Heard the end was a letdown; not nearly as bad as expected. Phoned in enough to not be as amazing as it could've been, but still far from the worst ending I've seen. At least erased had one. Compact with content most of the time, but bad writing decisions bogged it down. [6/10]

This final episode was...intriguing. i liked it,but having them waiting at the exact site of his fall,and him somehow dodging being hit by the wheelchair that was literally falling on top of him,felt a bit much. and i dont see how the teacher would have managed to escape after killing satoru like he intended to originally,before deciding to suicide instead. also,the way the teacher was holding the wheelchair with one hand it would have 100% rotated instantly and had satoru fall from it. that part irritated me the entire scene >_>.

overall,until episode 11 this was a masterpiece to me,but the last two episodes lowered it a bit. still pretty good overall though. an 8.5/10 for me,rounding up to a 9 :)

As others have already mentioned, the first part of the anime all the way until episode 9 or 10 was really intriguing and got me totally hooked. Episodes 10-12 fell flat and I was dissatisfied with how it developed to the end. It could have been so much better.

Anyway, I am at least glad that he and Airi ended up together in the end.

Also, I wish this anime was 24 episodes long...

Well,well,well...here we are at the end of what I think is one of the best animes I've seen so far.I'm very sad that Satoru lost all of his childhood and woke up at the age of 26(3 years younger than at the start of the anime) because I loved all his friends,especially Kenya,I mean he was the first to find that Satoru has something planned.I'm also sad because he kind of lost Airi after Revival ( when they met,right after the credentials, I hoped in my heart that she would have somehow remembered about him,but that wasn't the case (at least they met and probably start a relationship later ) ) because I loved with her personality and truth be told they are made for each other.At least Satoru is friends with all of his childhood friends,something that he hadn't showed in the first episodes.I'll really miss this masterpiece and I hope I can find something as thrilling as this.
I would say this anime was 9.5 if not 10.It kept me watching every episode one after another and it made me almost cry :)).
PEACE!

There are plenty of "forced scenes" in the majority of animes if not all of them.The autor wanted to make a happy ending and this was his way to do it.Some things you said can be explained.It's not ok to bring down a grade just because of a scene,a scene that some people maybe enjoyed.:D

the way he did it was extremely forced and makes no sense,and he should have found a better way. however,i didnt bring down the grade just because of that scene. re-read what i said again. i brought it down because of the entire last two episodes not being nearly as good as the episodes before them,with that scene being simply the biggest evidence of that.

She is not a high school student.
She is about 22-23 years old.
In addition, her role has been greatly reduced. Compared to Manga

People are talking a lot about the manga, just hope it is not like the Sound of Silence, wich manga is also sooo overrated and in my opinion, very disppointing and with MUCH LESS impact and feelings.

I loved this anime. The start, the fist half, the plot until he saves Kayo was wonderful and "instigante", make you feel excited or in anguish wondering what will happen next.

THEN, short after this we, we everybody less the protagonist, already know who is the psycho, and this is the worst part of the anime, since we stay powerless seeing the kid being so dumb.

But after that the ending recovered it a bit and is good enough, since for most except weirdos happy endings are comforting.

It was very good to me, a nice mix of time travel and butterfly effect.

Overall I liked this anime but I must admit that from the moment the story with Kayo ended I kind of lost interrest.

Actually I would even say that I would change a lot of things after that moment. Like I don't know Kayo and Satoru living an happy life togheter and forever with many kids etc. (Yeah I never said it was going to be the more interresting end but at least it would have been the one who would have warm my little heart...)

It's only half a joke tho. Even though it ended "well" I find this end quite sad at the same time and I'm personnaly not a huge fan of these kind of ends. Still a great show tho.

I love this anime a lot. I haven’t watched many anime’s, and I haven’t read this Manga, but I loved it. The ending scene was predictable in my opinion, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that it feels like it’s the best way to complete the story.

This anime is definitely overrated. I didn't read the manga but the anime is a total mess, the second half is too surreal but it was still interesting to watch (I expected something better but that's fine). 7/10.

No he did not get Airi, sheesh. I'm sure she has some pretty schoolboy she rather be with than some old man she works with. After Kayo cucked him, he's gonna end up forever alone, as he was intended to originally.

Bruh, this show is a 7 and a disappointment, even with that score, being a disappointment doesn't mean that I didn't like it, but the lsst eps after 8 felt like a train wreck and idk how to explain it, also the teacher felt so under developed that i didn't get his motivation, they really fucked up at this final eps, i didn't like the whole getting into coma and the femboy stole your gf and you got cucked thing but i understand we are as blank as the protagonist on this one and he was in coma so she wasn't going to wait for him 15 years without a love interest, overall i enjoyed its development till they fixed Hanazuki life, then the thing didn't had much direction and the 29 year old man wasn't able to figure out his teacher was a subject before do he got on his car, wtf! Are you mentally challenged? They just did dirty to the story to fill the time gap of the 18 years, something felt so frustrating about this, there where 3 posibilities to go with that i can come with, the coma ending, a click (Adam Sandler movie) like ending that would get people angry if he just skips to the future after solving everything and he ends like wtf bruh, and third possibility is he lived his life again trying to get the teacher arrested, i know its a bad description and im not a writer and nor i could come with something better, but man pulling something like that seems rushed idk

Another example of "How to fuck up an anime in 2 episodes". As much as I love animes in general, but the writers screw up at least half of them by trying to find a fancy and extraordinary ending. If you can't find a relatable new ending, just go for the chliché ending.

The whole story was about rescueing Kayo and after he did it, Kayo just disappeared. Then she came back in episode 11 like "Hi, thanks for the help, I've never talked a single word with your friend during the whole series but I married him, this is our baby, Bye". Ok... thanks for nothing.

The whole show was pretty mediocre cause it was pretty clear from the beginning who will be the killer. There was just a lack of alternatives because the whole show had only about 10 different characters. 6 friends including Kayo, two mothers, the teacher and Yuki. You don't have to be a genius to know that the teacher is the only possible choice. That hamster dialogue was also ridicoulus: "When I was a kid, I had 5 hamsters and i dropped them in a bottle of water. All died but one and I named him Spice"... Nice story bro... tell me more.

Last but not least. Satoru ends up with Airi, an underaged girl that we have seen for about 5 minutes in total and the last time in episode 6, I guess... Mhhh

Worst part of the anime was by far when they cucked him by giving Kayo to his friend. I don't know what they were thinking....

I put it from a 8 to a 7 but then back to a 8 because the last few seconds because I am assuming he gets the pizza girl instead. So eh ok. Would of been way better with Kayo though.

I wanted to give this 8 so badly as it was a really great story but honestly once I found out they cut off Yashiro's back story in the Manga and didn't show it I became extremely disappointed. I read it after I finished watching and it was brilliant, adding so many needed layers for his character. I don't get it. What would have happened if they had just given the anime one extra episode for such very important information? Without his backstory there is no sense or understanding of his motivation to kill. Considering the fact that him being the killer was so so obvious, not showing how he developed into such a killer hurts the anime a lot.

Unfortunately for such a big mistake I'm going to lower my rating from 8 to 7. Still a great show with great characters and emotions. Definitely worth watching despite everything.

I didn't expect to like This Show as much as I did. I Think It was incredibly Well executed, With believable characters, good Animation and music and It kept up the suspense. I only Wish the culprit would have been less obvious. And there was one of the later episodes that kinda felt out of flow to me. Might have been ep. 10 or something.
Anyways, solid 9/10 for me. Great watch. :)

The twist and reveal of Yashiro being the killer were painfully obvious throughout. So that’s slightly disappointing. Other than that I found the show consistently gripping and engaging and thought it was gas throughout. I was so ready to give it a 9 until Airi came back. 10/10.

What a great show! Had some flaws in pacing (looking back it's obvious certain things were cut) and a few bits of silly execution, but man, this show had way too many lovable characters, and was very, very easy to binge; what with them, the consistently awesome production values, the exciting direction and just the overall audiovisual presentation. And the OP!! I'd been listening to the track for a long time way before I ever started this show, and it's a track I'd always keep coming back to. It's perfectly nostalgic and bittersweet. And the visuals of this OP couldn't be more perfect for it either. It's definitely become one of my all time favourites. Like, at least top 5.

Airi and Satoru's mom are/were without a doubt joint best girls. And anyone who hates the show/ending just because Satoru didn't end up with Kayo, and was ""cucked"" are being idiots. That is all.

...Can't believe the amount of shit I'd heard about it just because Kayo decided to actually live the life she'd been granted. And Airi thematically fits so much better anyway.. Not that it really had to end with either/ANY romantic interest. It has absolute zero bearing on any of the story's themes.

I also can't see how the villain being predictable is a very valid point of criticism either. It was obvious just about from the start, and that was a/the point of tension in the story, as we came to learn Satoru saw him as a father figure, and as someone who'd done a lot for him and his friends, and wouldn't come to the conclusion easily. We wanted him to figure it out before the worst happens, and this was what served to create most of the tension--in particular those scenes where they're together alone, and/or where he's in a position of dangerous power. Not the mystery of it. The show never even really tried to make us think it was anyone else, there was no one else.

The ending was way better than I've expected (specially considering all I heard about it being 'oh so disappointing')

Pretty happy they had Kayo not end up with Satoru after all, even though it's fiction having her wait years for a person she had (at best) a child crush on would feel weird.

Seeing Airi at the end was even better, I was hoping they'd meet again and making she show up at the last second again really kept me on the edge, such a welcome surprise.

No surprises on the murderer, even though it was obvious, I think it had a good execution and tension.

The show as a whole kept me glued to the screen, one of the few that I binged (technically, took me two days but still)

Having a hard time between giving it a 9/10 or a 10/10, really damn good.

In tv, the hardest thing to do is give a really good show a really good ending.

Erased is no different. An incredible show through 10 episodes (9/10 rating). But the final 2 episodes were kind of average.

Seeing Kayo with a kid was really powerful. It was also nice that Airi made her return after being ignored for the final half of the series. And Satoru's mom was a really cool character.

But catching the killer felt too easy. The wheelchair over the side of the roof thing... ? I generally don't like everybody-gets-a-happy-ending endings, and this was no different. I *do* acknowledge, however, that happy endings make sense for *this* show, I just wish they would've fleshed it out a little better.

Oh well, final rating 8.0/10.

The last 2 episodes were extremely disappointing. Airi at the end saved it a little bit, though.

7/10 only because the first 9-ish episodes were amazing

Loved this episode. Best episode of this anime. The way the story turned out just in one episode- That pretty much gave me a GOOSEBUMP though from the very start i predicted that Yashiro will be the Killer.

I was hoping to get this story more complicated. If this anime was more than 25 episodes or so I can guarantee this would surpass STEINS GATE though this anime is better in it's own. 😉

When I started this anime I was slowly starting to love it. The music was beautiful both opening and ending. But the last two episodes ruined everything. The first turn off was Kayo appearing with a baby. With the opening and the cover of this anime, I shipped Kayo and Satoru and they had to marry her to Hiromi? What's the rush of getting married, they must be just 24 or 25! Then second I got confused with that spider string story of Yashiro. They should have properly explained it if it was some kind of ability or just a metaphor?? And there should have been some
proper backstory of Yashiro that why he became obsessed with killing children? Totally messed up ending. Disappointed! 7/10 for music.

It is simple.
(Satoru is happy to see'her marriage')
This is the most important. This is perfectly expresses that what he wants most is'her happiness'.
If Satoru married her, it wasn't expressed properly.

Even that happiness wasn't expressed properly... It was so rushed.. Kayo didn't even feel like Kayo...And I can even ignore that part but at least the Yashiro's part should have been shown properly.. !

After giving this a rewatch I'll stick with my original thoughts on the show. First 8 episodes terrific, the next few were good but not up to the level of what came before. Final ep felt rushed and a bit silly really. I do appreciate final shot of Airi showing up though I'm a bit confused why the Revived butterfly would precede her. Should this be an ominous instead of a happy moment?

8/10 for being great but then tripping up at the end.

It would make more sense to me that Satoru met Airi at the pizzeria. She was never shown hanging under the bridge without Satoru. That was random as heck.

It is kind of depressing that the funniest part in this entire anime is when Satoru Winks at the teacher after tricking him. This was one of the deepest anime’s I have ever watched, (not that I have watched many) And definitely was a very intense ride that I binge watched in just a fraction of a day.
