In an announcement via their official social media channels, Madman Entertainment’s AnimeLab team have confirmed that the video-on-demand service will be streaming ERASED (Boku Dake ga Inai Machi / 僕だけがいない街) this season. This will join the already sizable range of titles picked up by the publisher for launch in January.
This anime series is adapted from the original ongoing manga by Kei Sanbe. Featuring animation by A-1 Pictures and known as the latest ‘noitaminA’ series, this seems to be quite an interesting title. The first episode is not up on the AnimeLab website just yet, but expect its arrival soon.
Satoru Fujinuma is a 29 year old manga artist struggling to make a name for himself. He also has an involuntary supernatural ability that sends him back in time to prevent deaths and catastrophes… repeating time until the accident is prevented.
One day, he’s involved in an accident that frames him as a murderer. Desperate to save the victim, he sends himself back in time only to find himself as a grade-schooler!
