A School Frozen in Time
Volume 1


It is a cold winter morning, seemingly like any other, when a group of students notice something amiss—the entirety of Seinan Gakuin High School is empty. There is nobody else in the building aside from eight third-year students: Takano, Mizuki, Sugawara, Rika, Shimizu, Mitsuru, Akihiko, and Keiko. No one is able to leave the school or contact anyone outside, and everyone's watches are stopped at 5:53, as if the school is frozen in time.

Soon, a startling realization about the nature of their predicament strikes the whole group: this is the exact time a student had fallen off the building sometime ago. Even more terrifying is that no one can remember who the student was. Not long after, they all spot a mysterious "Do you remember?" message on their homeroom chalkboard. The person who committed suicide, the eight students with altered memories, and the ominous circumstances of the school—can all these distinct events somehow be related?

I like stories about friends overcoming hardships together. Stories with intriguing mysteries and backstories. Stories that make me think and reflect on my own life and past memories. I really LOVE a good tearjerker, and hell, I've been wanting more stories set during the wintertime. So what happened to A School Frozen In Time?

The story even starts off somewhat like Angel Beats, which, as flawed and unfortunately unfinished as it is, is probably one of my favorite anime of all time. A mysterious high school where no one in our group of characters can get out of and be reminded of their tragic backstories over ...
