Erased

Twenty-nine-year-old Satoru Fujinuma is floundering through life. Amid his daily drudgery, he finds himself in the grip of an incredible, inexplicable, and uncontrollable phenomenon that rewinds time, a condition that seems to only make his drab life worse. But then, one day, everything changes. A terrible incident forever changes Satoru's life as he knows it...and with it, comes a "Revival" that sends Satoru eighteen years into the past! In the body of his boyhood self, Satoru encounters sights he never imagined he would see again--the smile of his mother, alive and well, his old friends, and Kayo Hinazuki, the girl who was kidnapped and murdered when he was a boy the first time around. To return to the present and prevent the tragedy that brought him back to his childhood in the first place, Satoru begins plotting a way to change Hinazuki's fate...But up against the clock and a faceless evil, does eleven-year-old Satoru even stand a chance?

Boku dake ga Inai Machi The Town Where Only I Am Missing   Didn't read the manga until after the anime adaptation. Among other things, I wanted to know whether this whole topic of time travel is explained in more detail in the manga. If anyone is interested, no, it is not explained. In other words, the manga is just like the anime, with one major exception.From the point in episode 10 when the breakup came, the anime took a different direction. The manga had a different and longer finale from then on. Among other things, I liked this one more because you had seen a lot more of the main antagonist.   Story The basic idea behind the plot appealed to me immediately. Basically, it's an approach that is generally promising and offers a lot of leeways. The course of the plot was also satisfactory. There was a little lack of tension and the conversations were a bit flat too. What was done right, however, was the atmosphere. Both in the manga and in the anime adaptation. This could lift the somewhat fluctuating tension nicely. My biggest problem with the plot is the lack of clarification of the skills / events. Time travel is all well and good, but if the explanation is missing, it is only half the cheese.   Drawing Slightly above average. The draftsman's strength was definitely not in the characters, but in the environment and the presentation. Characters Except for the wanted murderer, all characters were mostly monotonous and weak. They have been as normal as they could possibly be. Accordingly, it was difficult to build any interest in them. Conclusion It was quite an interesting manga. Basically, I liked it slightly better than the anime. With a little more detail and explanation, it could certainly have gotten better.
