Welcome back! In this post I’ll be talking about shows that I just watched / finished up and they are…..
When I first started this anime earlier on in the year I wasn’t expecting it to be so short. Erased is a 12 episode anime (That recently just aired a live action movie) that focuses on a 29 year old manga artist named Satoru Fujinuma. Satoru is able to travel back in time before a tragedy is about to happen, this powerful yet mysterious phenomenon which he calls “Revival” is taken advantage of in order to save many lives.
However when he becomes wrongly accused of a murder he finds himself transported back through time (Which is usually a few minutes before the tragedy) 18 years to the year 1988 where he has to investigate the murder and change the course to rid himself of said accusations.
This is a highly rated anime series and considering it’s only 12 episodes long I would jump over to crunchyroll and binge watch it all. It’s fantastic and wraps itself up in a pretty bow. I’d like to see more but I feel like they did such a great job wrapping things up, but hey, if they can continue it on another case I’d be front row opening night.
I came to watching Gate later in the game and didn’t know that while I was watching episodes 1 thru 12 that 13 onwards was season 2. So unlike erased you’ll be getting a few seasons out of Gate and it’s totally worth catching up for.
Gate is about a portal from another world appearing in Ginza, Tokyo. Where a legion of soldiers and monsters emerge to attack the city. However thanks to their far more advanced weaponry and tactics, the JSDF (Japan Self-Defence Forces) easily repel the enemy, passes through the gate and establish a forward base of operations to force the roman-styled empire of the other world to open peace negotiations.
This anime has such a great cast, story and visual look to it I was instantly hooked and I’m sure you all would be to. A must check out and again you can find this over oncrunchyroll.
Thanks for reading everyone and I’d love to hear your thoughts. Either on Erased / Gate or on an anime series you just recently watched and want to share with others. Leave your comments below, I look forward to them.
