Just watched this.

don't know what's sadder, the ending that could be seen a mile away, or the mc getting cucked by a guy that's not even his main bro.

What's /a/'s opinion?

Show was good overall. Interesting from week to week, and probs one of the best shows of its season.

And even if the ending seems obvious, there was no agreed consensus who the killer was in the Sup Forums threads that were going on while it was airing.

Cuck stuff can stay over in /Pol/ for all I care. Airi best girl anyway.

The show suffered from poor pacing after the Kayo arc. Other than that, the adaptation is decent, go read the manga.

That's a lie. We figured it out pretty early and through most of the latter episodes it was fucking painfully obvious

Anthony Peterson

It's the source material, of course it's going to be better than the show itself, some things are better cleared up in the manga, but I'll admit that the writer could've gone differently with the events after dealing with Kayo. It did not stop me from enjoying it.

"I saved a girl from her abusive mum when she was like 9, and then I was in the coma for 15 years, but surely, she had to wait for me all this time, she owes me sex and we have to marry each other"
Be glad that she is alive already, he never wanted to fuck her, he just wanted to save her and he managed to.
Even satoru doesn't feel bad about being "cucked" so why would you. I still don't understand

Ryder Stewart

I didn't even finish it because it was so stupid, boring and contrived. The main character was about as interesting as a bottle of milk and the story was clearly tailored for teenagers.

I guess it's for us the viewer, that feels like all his efforts and hardships to save that girl went to waste.

Both the anime and the manga barely use the concept of time travel to its own benefit. Satoru’s revival ability, which sends him back to the past, is used only 3 or 4 times in total during the entire storyline. Additionally, he has little to no control over its occurrence, resulting in it being used only for narrative convenience. Common ideas such as time paradoxes or the butterfly effect are never dealt with on any level and why Satoru has this ability is never explained either. By the end of the show, the time travel aspect feels completely extraneous.

Similarly, Erased sets up a murder-mystery case, but does an incredibly poor job of following through with it. The show never builds a good list of credible suspects to keep the audience guessing, nor does Satoru ever try to play an effective detective. The perpetrator becomes easily identifiable simply because the show quickly runs out of valid options rather than because a string of clues is provided so the audience can figure it out. Little to no time is given to understanding the killer’s motives, and the eventual reveal is glossed over so fast that a motive might as well have not existed. While these are by no means mandatory details of a mystery or suspense story, it limits the amount of intrigue these aspects can generate.

Kevin Cooper
Kevin Cooper

I can understand why it feels this way, I kind of felt the same at first but like you said he's got quite a lot of cool things going on for him now.
I mean if he didn't time travel his mother would be dead just like kayo and he'd still be delivering pizza.

But honestly if kayo had waited for him 15 years, for a childhood love that is, it would have been too unrealistic in my opinion. But hey, everyone has different opinions.

Andrew Wilson

Both the anime and the manga barely use the concept of time travel to its own benefit.

Constituting 99% of time travel stories ever. Watch/read/listen to more time travel stories. It's primarily a short character drama, not a mathematical dissertation on the music of the spheres or a detailed case by case murder mystery: it does well on whatever funds and time it got allocated.

Cooper Phillips

The killer was reveled so quickly that I thought they were going for a false flag, but it was just a poorly executed double false flag.

Ryan Peterson

Luke Roberts

It wasn't that obvious in the manga. Sensei felt like some random side character till volume 4 or something but the anime was focusing way more on him and depicted him as mysterious from the very beginning. I think the anime director is a Yashiro fag.

Jose Lopez
Jose Lopez

Would have made sense

Daniel Roberts
Daniel Roberts

Bullshit, it was just as obvious in the manga. Simply because the cast was too small and had no other possible suspects that wouldn't feel like an asspull.

Christian Jenkins

I expected this too. Especially since he seemed to know what's going on and even acted like a time traveller. Would be nice seeing an enemy with this power as well.

The biggest criticism is how obvious the villain was from the get go. Not only that Satoru sometimes didn't act like an adult when went back to the past, it was weird.

I do prefer the anime end though.

Lucas Powell

But honestly if kayo had waited for him 15 years, for a childhood love that is, it would have been too unrealistic in my opinion.
Definitely agreed. Waiting 15 years for someone tends to be a bit of a stretch even when they've already been married for years, but a couple of 10-year-olds who weren't even really dating and were only really close for a matter of weeks, no way. Even if one of them did save the other's life.

Tyler Thomas
Tyler Thomas

I'm on the other side. Anime end is fine, but they botched it by not including the killers past. The panels where his wife realizes he's a killer are great.
Yeah, completely different.
They never go to a roof or anything, and the killer doesn't just meet up with Sato either.

Charles Bennett
Charles Bennett

Yes pretty much. Cancer loli played a bigger role in the manga and there was another time skip and the killer kept killing people there whereas Satoru turned into Jesus in the anime and prevented Gaku of even becoming a serial killer again after 1988.
The manga also had Gaku's past.

NO YOU FAT FUCK

You didn't "just" watched it. You already watched it with Sup Forums. You're just making excuses to shove your "cuck" meme with this show. You've been making this kind of thread every week.

Jace Johnson
Jace Johnson

that feels like all his efforts and hardships to save that girl went to waste.

How? In the first place, he didn't save her because he felt attached to her. He intentionally avoided her during his "first life" because he felt they were too similar, and it's hard to look into a mirror that highlights the broken parts of you.

Saving Hinazuki wasn't just for her, or out of some feelings for her, it was just as much for the other victims (including Jun and his own mother) and because of a complex he'd built over the trauma of that time.

He's not some goddamn fedoralord that only does good things for people out of the expectation that he'll be rewarded, that they'll be ingratiated to him. Had his original rescue worked out, Hinazuki would never even know he'd done a damn thing.

He wanted to save people because that's what a hero does. And he did - the town became a town where only he was missing, and he couldn't be happier. He happily gave those 15 years he'd already lived once alone to the people who originally never got a chance to live them at all.

Goddamn, what a guy. What a legend.

The only bad part is that Satoru apparently had no remorse for shackling his poor mother to his bed for 15 years.

I mean, in one time line she is dead. In the other she was basically a walking corpse for 15 years. But sadly we never saw Satoru reflect on that.

Michael Nguyen

Maybe in one of those extra stories in Gaiden. It sounds like one of those chapters authors tend to skip for the sake of the pacing of the main series.

Did Sensei raped the girls too or just murdered?

Brody Gray

Just murder iirc. His brother raped the little girls.

Benjamin Ramirez
Benjamin Ramirez

Sure, but that was just good luck on his part.
What if he had woken up after she died of old age? What if he had never woken up?

My problem is simply that Satoru is given the character trait of loving his mother. But he doesn't bat an eye at wasting 15 years of her life.

Maybe it's a value thing, but given the two choices:
a) mom lives until she is murdered, had a good life up to this point
b) mom lives until she dies of natural causes, spends over 10 years in grief because her son is in a coma

Which one would you choose?

Landon Moore

Sure, user. The last present-day arc, with the house fire and the police chase, was the earliest that it started to become clear.

David Hernandez

3 lives for 10 years seems like a fair trade

Agape is vastly over-rated

I think the "cuck" stuff is just the shit cherry on top of the contrived plot device sundae. Erased wasn't very good, not as a mystery, not as a character study.

Just about the only thing praise worthy about it is semi-decent directing, and that's only if you're a mouth breather who thinks red = dead is some revolutionary and subtle mechanic
