masterpiece
19 February 2016 | by martin-sieversSee all my reviews

up till this point i have not bothered having an account on IMDb, but after seeing this anime i just had to make make a review, its just that good!

the plot keeps you on the edge of your toes the whole time while the protagonist tries to change the unfortunate events from the past and present. the character development is amazing and you grow more and more attached to the characters as the time moves toward the darker and terrible events. There are moment in the anime which are utterly heartwrenching and other which make you feel happily warm inside. The music is just fantastic and sets the mood where it needs to be while also using silence to great effect.

The similar themed anime called steins gate was a damn near perfect series, but Boku dake ga Inai Machi is just THAT much better.

i give it 10 out of 10 a must watch for every anime fan with a taste for mature and thoughtprovoking plots.
