Anime Recommendation: ERASED/Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi

It’s about Satoru Fujinuma, a 20-something year old man…

…who one night witnesses a crime, and somehow manages to fall back in time to when he was a child…

…when he was a child, there was a string of kidnappings and murders of young girls his age, including this girl, Kayo Hinazuki…

…a girl who didn’t feel like she fit in, she didn’t have any friends and was having a lot of troubles in her private life…

…so Satoru decides to befriend Kayo…

…and at the same time, Satoru tries to find and stop the one behind the serial child murders before Kayo is killed again.

I can’t recommend this anime enough. It’s new and short, but it easily shines as one of my favourites. It’s got suspense, it’s got mystery, it’s got sci-fi elements with the time travelling, it’s got emotional moments, cute moments, dark, scary moments…and a rockin’ opening song.

WATCH IT. JUST… DO IT!!
