Description
A strange phenomenon where one is transferred back to the moment right before something life-threatening occurs. This continues to happen until the cause of the threat is erased. It is as if somebody is forcing Satoru to stop it from happening. Then one day, everything is changed. What truths are revealed when Satoru comes face to face with his own past? How will they affect his future?

I'd have to say it was quite good, not amazingly good but just good.

PROS
- likable main character
- the characters were not bad.
- the story plot was interesting

CONS
- kind of predictable.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Almost everyone could tell it was the teacher I mean it was just too obvious! Either they showed him too much which made us suspect him or maybe he was just too nice to the main character.

- got a bit boring towards the end

It was pretty good but if you love mystery genre, you might not enjoy this because it's kind of predictable....

This is so amazingly close to the reality of how real people behave in tough situations that I can't get over it. The emotional realism makes the suspense expertly set up by the story all the more believable and intense. From what I've read so far (through chapter 9), I think maybe its emotions will be what will make this manga great. I think many tears and fears are coming down the line, so much so that I almost am afraid to read more. Stories can actually do that to people when they're this good!

I started reading this because I really love sensei's Mouryou no Yurikago and Hoozuki no Shima series.
Unlike the previous two I mentioned here which both of the series started with suspense situations on the first chapter, I thought the plot for this one kinda slow and boring.

But after I read the next chapter, and the next chapter, and the next chapter, I know I'm wrong.

I don't know about others, but after the recent chapters (i'm on chapter 7) whenever I relate the series meaning ' The Town Where Only I Am Missing' with the page where little Fujinuma holding a trowel and a bucket surrounded by the tall grass in chapter 1, I kinda get an eerie feeling.
No, I guess I got mix feelings; eerie, warm, suspense throughout reading this series.

It's good to know Fujinuma really loves his mom. And I think he's really cute when he's a child.

Normally when I see thrillers, i tend to think they just loop around the story with no character development or strong plot progression such as Monster, but boku dake ga inai machi used the theme of friendship in not so melodramatic style but to combine the thrilling elements of the series with strong contrast of that element to give a powerful sense of hope and emotion.

A must recommend series that only last 8 volumes and has beautiful and good amount of character development that succeeds not only due to the character backstory but the character interaction with well written dialogue that doesn't feel awkward. Very worthy of its praise

A very, very good story, a shame its English scanlation was on the uneven side.......but hey, it was completed and it's only noticeably confusing to read the English in certain parts, so yeah, very good.

sorry for bad english in advance. not my native language.
yesterday finished reading this manga. what can i say. i liked this manga and story line very much. Then I downloaded anime adaptation of this manga. Donít liked cuz it was very succinity in the end.
2 partially I want ask you question: portagonist may be seems stupid to you. But how can you go and do some research when you 11 years old kid? When I was in his age I have curefew (and you donít?) I agree with you that he have knowledge and brain of adult, but he also have limitations of his current state in the past. Those limitations is simple he just primary school pupil. He canít do anything about others victims (remember there was 30 cases in the end). What he chose to do is to save his classmates. If you want to read about more mature/smart portagonist in child body from time travel try reading ďOre ga Doutei o Sutetara Shinu Ken ni TsuiteĒ.

Addicting.

Predictable a bit.

Suspension of disbelief is high among all other mangas. The main character is truly a real design... He blurts out his thoughts in slips. He starts as a fake character and grows into almost a hero. It reminds me of Steins;gate in that way.

Also... "Scorcher"...who rates a manga as a 5 out of 10 and says "they don't make manga like this anymore"? Are you an idiot?

This manga has exceeded my expectations. Super intriguing premise and an unpredictable plot. Can't wait to read the next chapter. It's not as formulaic as the description ("Struggling manga author Satoru Fujinuma...") makes it seem.

(Up to Chap 29, I'll edit the review as the manga continues)

An amazing plot and an outstandingly well-designed MC balanced with perfectly paced chapters makes this a wonderful story to behold.

Whenever something bad is about to happen, the MC is stuck in a time loop, time is reset to around 5 mins before the bad thing happens, the only way to get out of this loop is to prevent the bad thing from happening.

This concept would already work great for episodic story arcs, but the mangaka shows foresight with how he interweaves the story, plot concept and character driven strorytelling into a well composed work.

I will get into the brunt of the story here, yes it's spoilers, but well worth reading:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The man's mother is murdered, he is framed but the time loop offers him a way to prevent this, however, the loop doesn't reset time to 5 mins ago, he goes 16 years into the past, where he's a 12 year old kid again. Why is this? Because the murderer of his mom is the same serial killer who took the lives of several of the MC's classmates when he was young: the only way to save his mom, is to prevent the murders from happening in the first place!


Compelling storytelling with remarkable characters that are hard to forget. Well done, mangaka!

I've read hundreds of series now, but this one is easily on the top 1% in terms of pacing, entertainment, thought provocation, and overall author's craft.
