Anime Reviews: Anime Review #3: ERASED

by AceTrainerGold

AceTrainerGold Today, as suggested by @DManArt&RP, I will be reviewing the anime Erased. So I'll just get into the review.

Erased is an anime about a guy called Satoru Fujinuma, who works as a pizza delivery man, but he wants to be a mangaka. He may seem like a regular man in his twenties, but Satoru has a special ability known as revival. This ability allows him to go back in time to when something bad is going to happen so he can prevent it, this is shown when he used it to save a young child from getting run over. A little bit into the first episode Satoru's mother, who had recently moved in with him, had been murdered by a "mysterious" killer, though to me it was obvious who it was. But this causes Satoru to go back in time to when he was in elementary school, and this gives him a chance to find out who killed many of his school mates, as it may be the same who killed his mother.

The plot of this show is quite interesting, though time travel stories aren't very unique I still found the plot interesting and in my opinion a lot of this show is great. The animation and art by A-1 Pictures is very good, and this show is one of their better ones if you're thinking about plot. Even though it doesn't change the quality of the show much, I would just like to mention that this show's opening theme is amazing and very catchy, and I could never find myself skipping it.

The character's in this show were decent, I especially liked Satoru's mom and Yashiro (until the reveal happened.) Satoru wasn't my favourite character but I still think that he is a good and caring protagonist.

But now it's time to get onto the worst part of the show it's ending. I honestly didn't like the way it ended. I hate that Kayo and Satoru didn't end up together, even after he saved her, and the reveal of who the murderer was, was TOO obvious.

Like most of these reviews I don't want to go on for too long so I'll end it here.

In my opinion this anime was very good until the ending,
So I'll give it a: 7/10

If you have any suggestions, please tell me in the comments.

    this is a month old but whatever.
    OP is great (AKFG never disappoint), the anime was enjoyable, but lost momentum after Kayo got out of the picture. The ending felt... weak. I don't know how I expected it to end, but... It kind of ruined it for me, not gonna lie. 6/10 thanks to OP & the Kayo arc.
