To say that I am excited for the anime adaptation of Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi, (also known as The Town Where Only I Am Missing or by its official english title ERASED) would be an understatement. I am over the moon that this manga is getting an anime adaptation and seeing the newly released trailer in action I was quick to hit the rerun on it.
For those who are out of the know, ERASED: Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi is about a 28 year old struggling mangaka who has the uncontrollable ability (or responsibility?) to relive events in a groundhog day style loop until he changes the course of fate and saves lives in the process. He has little idea of how he gained this ability which he refers to as ‘reruns’ nor as to why he must continue to save lives, it is almost as if he is making up for something?
The original manga which serves as the basis for the anime series has received critical acclaim for its complex plotting and deep emotional tale of regret and the innate human desire to have a second chance.
You can check out the trailer below for yourself to get a good gander at what to expect from ERASED: Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi when it premieres on January 7th.
