Deirii Raifu’s Pick:
Boku Dake ga Inai Machi – ‘If it’s not called ERASED you must be a pirate.’
“‘Believing’ is really a term of hope of wanting to believe.”
Boku Dake ga Inai Machi created a stir in early 2016. With the series bolstering a premise of solving a serial murder case. What made it mysterious was the time travel aspect, where it allowed for a different play on events, not just within the past but also how it affected the future. With a serial case came many murders, and thus different mysteries had to be solved 1 by 1 to catch the culprit, this overload of mysteries with varying types allowed for a lot of intrigue week by week.
