German distributor Peppermint Anime has picked up another title for release in the region that we’ll be seeing coming out in the near future with Erased. The one-cour series is a fresh pickup so there aren’t a lot of details yet but it’s being planned for an early 2017 release on separate DVD and Blu-ray releases in Germany.
The series is based on the manga of the same name by Kei Sanbe, which began back in the summer of 2012 in Young Ace.
The Japanese cast includes Shinnosuke Mitsushima as Satoru Fujinuma, Tao Tsuchiya as Satoru Fujinuma (10-year-old), Aoi Yuuki as Kayo Hinazuki, Chinatsu Akasaki as Airi Katagiri, You Taichi as Kenya Kobayashi, Akari Kito as Hiromi Sugita, Ayaka Nanase as Osamu, Yukitoshi Kikuchi as Kazu, Takahiro Mizushima as Jun Shiratori, Minami Takayama as Sachiko Fujinuma and Mitsuru Miyamoto as Gaku Yashiro.
The anime adaptation was directed by Tomohiko Itou based on the scripts by Taku Kishimoto and was produced at A-1 Pictures. Keigo Sasaki worked on the character designs.
Plot concept: The series focuses on Satoru Fujinuma, a struggling manga creator who suffers from a peculiar phenomenon called REVIVAL, where he is forcibly transferred back in time moments before a life-threatening occurrence. Satoru soon realizes that this phenomenon will continue to occur only to him until he successfully eliminates the cause of this threat.
