About Erased Manga Volume 1 (Hardcover)

Erased Manga Volume 1 features story and art by Kei Sanbe.

Twenty-nine-year-old Satoru Fujinuma is floundering through life. Amid his daily drudgery, he finds himself in the grip of an incredible, inexplicable, and uncontrollable phenomenon that rewinds time, a condition that seems to only make his drab life worse. But then, one day, everything changes. A terrible incident forever changes Satoru's life as he knows it and with it, comes a "Revival" that sends Satoru eighteen years into the past!

In the body of his boyhood self, Satoru encounters sights he never imagined he would see again the smile of his mother, alive and well, his old friends, and Kayo Hinazuki, the girl who was kidnapped and murdered when he was a boy the first time around. To return to the present and prevent the tragedy that brought him back to his childhood in the first place, Satoru begins plotting a way to change Hinazuki's fate. But up against the clock and a faceless evil, does eleven-year-old Satoru even stand a chance?

Excellent

by -

Scary, heartbreaking, funny, and touching by turns, Sanbe draws the audience into a world that feels real. The manga lacks a degree of the compulsive, whirlwind feel which helped make the anime amazing and though I missed it at first, as I read on, I found that the slightly slower pacing and the nature of the manga format presented an opportunity to more deeply appreciate the characters, contemplate events, and admire the quality and uniqueness of Sanbe's work. Can't wait for volume two!

Hardcover quality is top notch!

Like many here, I watched the anime before deciding to delve into the manga route. What I like about Erased is that the ending in the manga(what the author intended) is different from that of the anime as the latter ended before the manga finished. As such, the duality in the stories really made the manga version worth the purchase. And what's more, these hardcopies and their dust jacket feel so premium hehe :)

Compelling Story and Characters

by

Nothing beats a carefully crafted mystery. I would say this first volume has very few flaws. It has good pacing, emotion, and realistic characters. The art is average, so it must rely on its compelling story.
Time travel is a tricky ability to introduce into a story as it can create plot-holes. One has to wonder why the author decided introduce him at 29? His age could have been lower or he could have even had the ability as a kid. Analyzing it, I think must be so that the author could reach a larger audience.
If I had to be critical I would say that the main character being a failed Mangaka is kinda cringe. Mainly cause so many manga authors use it, and they seem self-insert their own failures into the story which breaks immersion for me. Can't they imagine any other jobs a person can fail at in life? There are plenty. But this is a small complaint as it won't bother first-time manga readers.
Even so there is very little I would change with this first volume.
