Erased

If you enjoy a weird time loop where a man has to revert back to being 10 years old in order to change the future, then this is the anime for you. Erased’s plot follows a man called Satoru Fujinuma who for unknown reasons can go back in time, in order to save a girl he has always regretted not protecting. He goes back in time in order to stop a serial killer murdering his close friends to create a different future, not only is he protecting those in the past but those in the future as well. Erased is a complicated yet heartwarming anime, that really lets you get into the show when it is in a child’s perspective. Because of this ability to go back into the past, Satoru still keeps his older mentality despite him being 10. And having an older mentality he notices more things, he even impacts other peoples lives more, and not spoiling anything but i personally thought Satoru got the short end of the straw at the ending. This is a great mystery anime because who doesn’t love a time travelling anime, but also because of the consistent switch between past and present time.

 

Satoru Fujinuma, age 29 (age 10), rash, emotional, he regrets not doing anything to save his dead classmates. Satoru gains this ability to go back in time, and he dedicated this used time to save those he lost, he makes it his duty to find the serial killer that got away in the future. And so detective Satoru is on the case. I found him to get the worst ending, so i pity him alot.

Kayo Hinazuki, age 10, a victim to the serial killer, quiet, sad, she keeps to herself and is one of Satoru’s many regrets. She had a miserable past, but thanks to Satoru she has the potential to be saved and live a happy life.

Sachiko Fujinuma, mother of Satoru, sharp, loving, tough, she is one of the best if not only mums who actually do something. Sachiko is a lovely women who deeply cares for her child, she is a dedicated women who protected her child’s innocence during the serial murders.

Bearer of good news, there is a manga that the anime was was adapted from, so you can read it and watch the anime. I pressure you to watch this lovely anime, it is a good catch and you will enjoy the whole show.

Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto

If you enjoy a slice of life story where the main protagonist looks suspiciously like Kyoya from Ouran host club, then this is the anime for you. Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto is only a 12 episode anime, but those 12 episodes are absolute perfection. The plot follows a boy called Sakamoto, who is the heartthrob for both girls and boys. He is the pure essence of COOL, and no matter what the situation Sakamoto fixes it in such a dramatic way that people only see it as brilliance. Most people just peg his brilliance as a ‘secret skill’. Every episode has a different problem, but as always Sakamoto saves the day through the weirdest of methods, be it through holding an umbrella elegantly despite it being turned inside out. He takes being the main character to a new level, so imagine yourself doing an activity to the best of your ability and over dramatizing it, that is a Sakamoto move.  He is smart, well dressed, serious and still people fawn over him. Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto is one of the best anime i have seen, it is so good that i catch myself humming his main theme tune and it makes me giggle all the time. One of the best things about this show is that Sakamoto does not fall in love with any characters, nor does he really have any sort of affection. It’s very refreshing to see. If this does not motivate you, then the opening song will get you hooked. Im not kidding, this anime is hilarious, and imaging he might be Kyoya from Ouran Host Club, only makes the whole thing more hilarious.

Sakamoto, Cool, Coolest, serious, perfect, he is the best student a teacher could ask for, and not only this but he is good looking as well. Sakamoto is at first a boy who is oblivious to many peoples feelings, but once he catches on that a person is sad he will try his best to fix their unhappiness. Sakamoto has many methods to get around, for instance in one episode he was kicking a stone, and when you thought it was over he defied gravity and kicked the stone along a steep river bank.

Yoshinobu Kubota, quiet, cute, low self esteem, Kubota is Sakamotos best friend, which came about from him being bullied. Kubota is a nice side character, he unlike many of the students does not see Sakamoto in a love way but a friendship way. 

Bearer of bad news, there are only 12 episodes and for me the ending wasn’t as satisfying but it did make me smile. Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto is a must see, you will be loosing out if you don’t watch it. The main thing about this anime, is it tries to make you laugh by over exaggerating every situation, and i say they do a great job.
