Synopsis

Satoru Fujinuma is a 29-year-old who works part-time as a pizza deliveryman in order to make ends meet due to his unsuccessful career as a mangaka. But there is more to this struggling adult than meets the eye, as he possesses a mysterious ability which takes him back in time right before a life-threatening incident occurs. When "Revival," as he calls it, triggers, it will continue to send him back again and again until he is able to save the lives of the individuals involved.

But Satoru's life is about to take a turn for the worse when a loved one is killed by an unknown man and he is framed for the crime. Desperate to get away so that he can assess his situation, he is inexplicably sent 18 years into the past—right before the disappearance and death of his classmate, Kayo Hinazuki, an event that has plagued him since childhood.

Satoru, now an elementary school student, must get his wits together and save the young girl from an untimely demise by figuring out the identity of the person responsible. But just how is Kayo's murder connected to the present?

At first, the protagonist, Satoru, is merely a struggling mangaka, working part-time as a pizza delivery boy. But then it is introduced that he has a peculiar, interesting ability. Specifically, before something like a 'preventable crime' or 'preventable death' is about to occur, the scene will replay in his mind several times, in which he has to find what is out of place and save the situation if he can. Key words 'if he can'--this is a chance, not a prerequisite.
Okay, cool. So, is this going to be some episodic story dealing with all the people he meets after saving them with this ability read more

Let me start by saying that this is the first review i've ever done and that I do not consider myself as an expert in this, plus, english is not my native language so there might be some mistakes in the redaction. Well, despite everything written above, I think my thoughts on this manga could be useful for someone who is planning whether to start reading it or not. “No shit sherlock, I guess that's why you're writing this!”

The following review contains some minor spoilers, but anything that may impair significantly the experience of reading the manga:

Let me say this that I had no other expectations from this because I saw the trailers of the anime before reading this.
This manga is simply legen... DARY! First of all, the art was amazing and played in tune with the mood of the story. When the story went to the past, the art looked very nostalgic. Next, the story, is great as the build-up is fills you with suspense and the characters were mostly great. What I liked in this story was that the women actually played a very important role in this story and weren't exactly damsel in distresses. The suspense was amazing read more

Before I begin my review, I want to say that my reviews are not the best. If you want a in-depth review on the series, I probably will not to be able to deliver, but you can stay around if you want.

Boku dake ga Inai Machi is a really interesting series. It's concept is pretty interesting and it's like nothing I've ever seen before. I came across this manga series after looking at the anime for the next season. Boku dake ga Inai Machi was in there, so I looked at the synopsis of it, and decided to read the manga. Was not disappointed.
