mIRecommends: An Anime to Binge - Erased

Although I've heard of "Erased" - also known as "Boku Dake ga Inai Machi" (僕だけがいない街, lit. The Town Without Me) - from a number of people that recommend it as is my habit to to wait well until a season is finished as waiting for what comes next is the worst part of falling for series. This is something I greatly recommend.

A heartfelt story of someone that felt loss but found a way to correct what they feel were mistakes and missed opportunities. Satoru Fujinuma attempts to correct of someone lost 18 years prior with a randomly occurring ability he calls "Revival" that seems to trigger when there is a possibility of changing an outcome. Before it's only happened for about one to three minute jumps until he is framed for murder in the present. 

The intrigue of the plot of the setting is not for the faint of heart as it does deal with some sensitive subjects such as murder, child abuse, abduction and serial killing. The concept is not all that new either but does it in a way that kept me interested. You could see similar beats from "The Girl Who Leaped Through Time" or "The Butterfly Effect" although the later would be a better watch.

As I said before the jump that would be something I highly recommend. 

If you're in Australia you should be able to watch it from AnimeLab.com
