Did You Know?


In the first few volumes of the manga, Satoru teams up with Airi to use his Ability to save people from trouble, setting up a clear formula that is quickly broken when Satoru is sent back in time to the 1980s, playing it up more as a twist. The anime cut this to save time. See more »

Realism with some sweet Supernatural Touch is the Key of Success of this Anime
5 September 2017 | by SaptarshiForYouSee all my reviews

Erased is one of my favorite anime. It is so natural and real. This has a strong message about Believing which itself a metaphor of hope and will. It may be turf for someone to understand the whole premises first but I advise that please float straight obtained to the stream and you will find all the answers. The Animation is actually soothing and the story really catches my nerves.

here I am mentioning the plus points of this anime

1. It is so realistic in its story, characters and screenplays 2. The Hero is pretty much suitable with the stream as he is as normal as other human beings. He takes his lessons from his faults and that is the key of his success 3. The musics, textures and special mentioning the OP is really great. 4. The messages that it throws to our society are really spell bounding. 5. Mental and Relational strong Bonding between characters.(Mother- son) 6. And lots more.

It says when a man lost his all hopes and doesn't want to stand again against his problems, then he have to ruminate the smiling face of his close peoples whom for he is OK on this earth and thus give him the sprite of fighting again.(I think this message is really needed into our present society)

(Here I am Putting my own opinion about its realism. So I mention Death Note Anime....Please don't misunderstood me. It is on purpose)

we know Death Note is another mystic Anime but if you just thought about the main protagonists of that anime for a minute, you can come to the point that they are actually supernaturally talented who barely do any faults, that is coincidental and unrealistic. It has no good for us as they are not normal. But for this anime the main protagonist is nothing but a simple man who gets success by doing faults. So for this reason it is real and super that can inspire some people at least.

Thanks for paying your time to read this. I know I bring forth many commotion facts that may be offensive for you but I request you to compromise with the fact. Thanks Again.
