One day, he gets involved in an accident that has him framed as a murderer. Desperate to save the victim, he sends himself back in time only to find himself as a grade-schooler one month before fellow classmate Kayo Hinadzuki went missing.

It looks really great in that preview.

This screams Shigatsu. Pretty overlooked manga out of nowhere, A1-Pictures and the preview is fucking amazing and makes me think that A1-Pictures will go all out on this.

Judging purely by the synopsis and that brief CM, it seems it's gonna be one hell of a ride.

But, but, I don't want to keep my expectations to the roof, so I'll be cautious and expect nothing from it.

I'll give it try, indeed.

Hopefully this will be better than the mysteries airing this season.

I'll probably check it out.

This is my most hyped Anime for 2016 still more than SnK S02, Steins;Gate 0, F/s n Heaven's Feel and Under the Dog. I really love the Manga.
Let's hope A-1 Pictures doesn't ruin the Manga Adaption. But I'm optimistic, A-1 have done 'Shinsekai yori', so they could make with 'Boku Dake ga Inai Machi' the next 'Steins;Gate', maybe even a better time travel Anime.

I'm reading the manga. The story, the mystery and the characters are really interesting. I think it'll be a great anime.

The manga is a true hidden gem. That adaptation popped out of nowhere...wasn't expecting it really, but I'm not gonna complain.

A-1 Pictures is good at drama so... excited.

Oh my god, this is splendid news. I can't wait!

That's in interesting synopsis. A-1, supernatural psychological? This is my kind of anime.

As long as it's not as bad as Shigatsu.

Jun 21, 2015 2:09 AM by ex_necross

My guess is none of the posters have read this at all cause if they did they'd be hype for this. Looking forward to it.

This was my thought too. "More of this" etc, when the manga was actually one of the more unique and engaging stories I've read.
