This was a really interesting read. The first half of it was fascinating and I was totally enthralled in the story and crossing my fingers that the hero would succeed in his race against the clock to save his friends from the "inevitable". I do wish that the culprit behind everything was a little less obvious though. The portion of the story that takes place after the "accident" and last major time skip felt a little lackluster to me. I guess I just didn't feel the ominous threat that I felt when they were all children. I suppose it felt rather anticlimactic compared to the suspense of the first half of the series. Also, I was definitely not a fan of the art style.

BUT. All that being said, I still find it highly memorable and fun to read, hence the high score. I was totally immersed while I was reading, despite little issues here and there. The only reason I'm not rating as a 10 is for the ending, which I believe could have been better. Definitely pick this one up though!

Mystery, drama, humor, heart. A beautiful and complex tale that can only be written by an author of intelligence who believes in his work, with masterful illustration and direction that really shows off the power of manga as a visual medium. From start to finish, the reader can feel that the story was planned and refined. The plot's construction and presentation make it eminently re-readable, and the second pass shows how much work was put into the details of foreshadowing. There are a thousand things to gush about, but to list just a few aspects of what the author managed to pull off...

Writing about a writer without a drop of fan-service or self-pity.
Time travel that services characters and story, and not the other way around.
Children that are written as children, and not micro-adults.
Mature, earned, filial love.

How many of the innumerable hacks who get anime adaptations would fall flat on their faces trying to pull off even one of these in a serious manga? How much time and effort goes into derivative garbage manga when works like this exist?

Anyway, pure, optimistic brilliance. 10/10

This is a neat crime mystery with a timeskip component. The first part in particular (until and including when the culprit is revealed, i.e. c1-32) is excellent.

The story overall remains good, though not amazing. In particular, it's somewhat marred by a) the action part of the ending feeling rather weak to me, and b) the timeskip ability never receiving an explanation or justification.

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.

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

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

- 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....

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. Don’t 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 don’t?) 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 can’t 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 “Ore ga Doutei o Sutetara Shinu Ken ni Tsuite”.

Extremely mediocre, extremely overrated

It's a supernatural mystery/thriller watered down for a teenage audience. None of the characters are compelling, nor does the mystery provide any intrigue. It's just a dull, flat and predictable read.

If you want a story in the same mould done genuinely well, read Hakomari.

I found Erased to simply be average overall. It actually has very good writing, and a good sense of pace. The actual content though is where the package falls down.

The primary problem is that the protagonist is an idiot. Once he travels to the past he becomes obsessed with saving all his little girlfriends. Now this isn't bad per se, however the problem exists that he is up against a SERIAL KILLER! And yet he only ever tries to save his friends. He never tries to look at the case of the killer, he never really investigates any of the other killings apart from looking at the newspaper.

Both times in the past he just tries to manipulate his direct friends so that they aren't where they were previously when they were killed. Literally! Like a killer could never adapt their plans could they? Nope! The fact that he kept his friend company for a few hours on the evening she was meant to be killed means she is entirely safe and he can go home?

If it only happened the first time, that would have been fine. One thinks he would learn from his mistakes. But he then goes through exactly the same process yet again. There is never a hint of actually wanting to catch the killer, so that he doesn't go around murdering children for years to come. Now if it WAS a group of children I could accept the story for what it is. However the fact is that he is an adult in a child's body. He should have the faculty, knowledge and deceptiveness to be able to at least investigate the killer. Instead every single action of his is basically that of a child, with a child's reasoning on how to fix things. It is hard to tell whether this was deliberate on the part of the author, or that they simply aren't the best at doing this type of story. The fact he constantly thinks his friends are safe simply because he removed them from a single situation is just weird. If there was some self-awareness from the author about this issue, some question as to whether this was correct, you could think that the author knows his character is a bit of an idiot. But I can't see that anywhere.

The only reason the killer is revealed is not through any action of the protagonist apart from him being an idiot. His bumbling around and messing with everything causes the actual killer to get pissed off.
