Boku dake ga Inai Machi/ERASED Manga Ends in March

posted on by Kyle Hallmark
Anime adaptation will portray ending of manga

The March issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine is revealing on Thursday that Kei Sanbe's Boku dake ga Inai Machi manga will end in the magazine's April issue, which ships on March 4. The magazine also notes that the manga's current seven volumes have 2.54 million copies.

The story follows Satoru, a struggling manga artist who has an ability that forces him back in time to prevent deaths. When his mother is killed, he is sent back in time to solve the mystery, but ends up back in elementary school just before the disappearance of his classmate Kayo.

An anime adaptation of the manga titled ERASED in English premiered on January 7. Aniplex of America has licensed the series, and Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and Funimation are all streaming the series as it airs.

Director Tomohiko Ito posted on the anime's official Twitter account earlier this month that the show will portray the original manga's ending. The anime is listed with 12 episodes, and is slated to end on March 24.

The manga is also inspiring a live-action film that will open in Japan on March 19.

Sanbe began the original manga in 2012. Kadokawa published the manga's seventh compiled book volume on December 26. The manga was nominated for the Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize 'Reader Award' in 2014 and last year's Manga Taisho Awards.
