Loved the OP. The ED is great as well.
That old man has an interesting ability. Being able to write down the truth. The Bureau is going to look into Asai now. They were able to deduce that someone is behind Asai. Souma needs to be on guard as well.

That's the guy from Kei's flashback(episode 10) who fixed his key chain thingy with "repair" ability. So he's the main antagonist. Interesting.
oh didnt notice. super interesting. repairing ability for the "antagonist" huh.
Chimera-Ant Arc sucks
A1-Pictures is great
Lelouch is alive

(This was originally intended to be a review stretching across the anime thus far. But having read the guidelines, it doesn't quite fit in as one.
Just wanted to share my thoughts. Please pardon the length of this post!)
I have just finished watching Ep 13, and I am reconsidering dropping the series. Reason being, it is a conveniently written plotline using OP characters thrown in for the author's specific agendas. Allow me to explain.
In episode 1, we are quickly introduced two stoic characters. The first is Haruki who possesses the ability to revert the world/reality to a pre-determined point in time, without her nor anyone else having any memory or awareness of having done so.
Having said that, we need someone who can circumvent its side effects (for plot development beyond the comical genre otherwise). Enter Kei, the protagonist who conveniently has the ability to remember everything. Simply, he is the only person in the whole conceivable universe who is aware once a reset is done. Being the only person who has knowledge of both the "known-future", as well as the present, allows him to change the future. That's a cool variation of time-travel plots.
But up till this point, you basically have two OP characters that can exploit their abilities beyond other characters. Don't get me started on how conveniently (#2) Haruki obediently becomes Kei's slave such that the plot can develop without the slightest conflict of interest...which happens right around....
Episode 2, where they also start putting their abilities to use. Fast forward, we need to enable a shy kid to express her heartfelt thoughts to her mum, let's conveniently (#3) throw in Tomoki who can broadcast messages into anybody's head. To further evoke emotions, we should have the mum reminiscent the past too. Let's then conveniently (#4) throw in Yosuke who can transfer abilities between two parties such that the mum acquires Kei's ability to remember.
At this point, you have an A-team that could wreck serious havoc. "Oh we get that. It's going to complicate things with Yosuke around. So let's conveniently (#5) have him uphold some moral conduct of being a law-abiding citizen"
At the end of episode 2, the known-future is shown to alter without Kei's intervention. A bit of thinking will present a hint that either someone else has similar abilities as Kei, or the ability of Precognition. That's fine by itself, as up to this point, you just need bigger "villains" that can out maneuver the protagonists
It gets worse from there on. Progressively, we are presented with a search-and-find scenario. Let's introduce the humble Nono who has the ability to possess neighborhood cats, so that she can conveniently (#6) provide intel to A-team.
Soon after in episode 4/5, we have another "villain" who eventually becomes an "ally" with the ability to erase. So yea, you can counter the effects of abilities themselves and reject all phenomena in the conceivable universe. I consider this a half convenient (#6.5) attempt, as with the ability to "do", there must be the ability to "undo" the omnipotence of the characters already in play.
Fast forward again, just before episode 13, i veered off to another acclaimed series: Steins;Gate. Even with minimal bias , the contrast is apparent. Rather than lauding Steins;Gate non-linear story-telling with all its merits, I would describe Sakurada Reset as reverse story-telling. Basically, it shows a lazy attempt to bridge the plot to your agenda by conveniently introducing characters for the sake of plot advancement, while having to keep up with how OP the characters are progressively getting.
At finally at episode 13, they (just had to) introduce an omniscient being, who pens the future into written volumes, as a representation of what could be the "final boss". So Kei is now up against Fate, as it is openly mentioned that everything that transpired, including the multiple resets to alter the futures, were part of a larger "script" that dictates it. I should also restate the fact that there are already 3 seers now, each with the ability of precognition of some sorts.
There's a saying that goes among salespeople: If you cannot convince your client, confuse them. If you cannot confuse them, con them. If I am allowed to praise Steins;Gate again, it would be the classy story-telling that toys with theoretical physics concepts while brewing a convincing romance along the way. Sakurada Reset on the other hand tries to impress by confusing the audience, which might have worked if all we wanted were convenient superheroes with bland purposes.

The dreamworld continues to be an interesting world.
I think the last thing that Kei and Haruki would have suspected when in the dream world is a monster attack though. Hmm with this new arc they also have a new opening then eh. Pretty catchy one as well.The insight into Kei and Souma's relationship was interesting. They sure seem to be close in the past. The realization that sleeping in the dreamworld would cause you to wake up was interesting. The relationship that Nono has with the stray cat man though was pretty surprising in that he actually helped raise her. But the man's ability to create these scripts whose events are 100% accurate though was interesting and i can see why the Bureau would be interested.
Lol Kei did well to not fall for that troupe though as both Haruki and Nono are wearing skirts after all. Its nice that we got to see a little of Nono's personality though. Hmm Nono was cute when she was little.The process of elimination to solve a given problem eh. Living in a life that runs on a script that you created must be fun. The Bureau arriving in the dreamworld sure was surprising. Seems the Bureau is slowly catching on then. It looks like they are anxious to keep the scripts a secret even if it means eliminating Kei though it does look like Sakuin is against violence. The plot gets more and more interesting. I also love the new ending theme as well too.

Rare to get a fantastic OP2 (bit like YBlackJack), and better tho unusual ED2. There's seems more emotion in both.
I thought Index knows all abilities in Sakurada (since she met mc at the beginning), instead she's a lie detector using color.
'Villain' explains, seems the Script can surpass the present into future, at least with the reset ability helping. lol doubt Bureau meeting Kei is coincidence. Bureau going to sleep to enter dream would've known Kei group sleeping nearby.
407 belongs to Scripts from the real world in Bureau's care. Was Souma wrong even with her precog? Or she has limited future view?
Ms Kitkat being there seems pointless.
Real or fake blue (bird of happiness). Michiru shielded from Oldman probably cuz za truth hurts. Nono finally decides Kei & Haruki are friends.
Most correct thing in the box, interesting a bit like finding the purest thing discussion from Marble girl.
cats, cats everywhere
