ERASED/Boku dake ga Inai Machi Re Spinoff Manga Ends in November
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The November issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine announced on Tuesday that Kei Sanbe will end his Boku dake ga Inai Machi Re spinoff manga in the magazine's next issue on November 4. The December issue will feature the manga on the cover.
The manga is a spinoff of Sanbe's original Boku dake ga Inai Machi manga, and covers stories not seen in the original manga.
The original manga's story follows Satoru Fujinuma, a 29-year old struggling manga artist who possesses a strange power: a largely uncontrolled ability to turn back time before a life-threatening accident occurs around him. When his mother notices a serial kidnapper in action, and is later murdered for it, Satoru unwillingly turns back time to arrive 18 years in the past in his elementary school days, some time before an incident that has haunted him his whole life: the disappearance and murder of his classmate Kayo Hinazuki.
Sanbe launched the spinoff on June 4.
Sanbe began the original manga in 2012, and ended it on March 4. Kadokawa published the manga's eighth and final compiled book volume on May 2. The manga was nominated for the Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize 'Reader Award' in 2014 and last year's Manga Taisho Awards. Yen Press will release the manga's first volume in North America in spring 2017.
An anime adaptation of the manga titled ERASED in English premiered on January 7. Aniplex of America licensed the series, and Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan. The manga also inspired a live-action film that opened in Japan on March 19.
