posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
A flyer from this year's AnimeJapan 2017 event revealed on Thursday that the television anime of Yutaka Kōno's teen science-fiction/fantasy light novel series Sagrada Reset will have 24 episodes. The official Twitter account previously revealed earlier this month that the anime will run for two cour (half of a year) without breaks. The series will premiere on Tokyo MX on April 5 at 11:30 p.m., and it will also air on Kansai TV, BS11, and AT-X.
Shinya Kawatsura (Non Non Biyori, Tanaka-kun is Always Listless) is directing the anime at david production, and Katsuhiko Takayama is in charge of the series scripts. Tomoyuki Shitaya is designing the characters. In addition to voicing Youka, Yui Makino is performing the opening theme song "Reset." The Oral Cigarettes' are performing the ending theme song "Tonariau."
The website describes the anime's story:
Sagrada, a town where almost half the population possess special powers. The town's administration bureau provides oversight on those with powers, and its inhabitants mostly live in peace. These powers were brought by gentle and heartfelt wishes such as "being able to make the tears from the person in front of me disappear," or "to be heard by someone."
Kei Asai has an eidetic memory, allowing him to perfectly remember anything he sees and hears, while Misora Haruki can turn back or "reset" time for a maximum of three days. While Misora forgets her memories of the future when she performs a "reset," Kei does not. Using their powers together, they are capable of changing the past to affect the present.
But there is one part of their past that they cannot escape. Two years ago, due to a reset by Misora, their classmate Sumire Souma died. Now, as members of their school's "Service Club," Kei and Misora spend their days accomplishing various requests from their schoolmates while searching for any possible way they can bring back Sumire Souma. One day, they find a request waiting for them: "I'd like you to bring my dead cat back to life."
To erase the sadness in their past, Kei and Misora run through time, and change the world.
