Well, that's what Japanese people get for always leaving their doors unlocked.

I've never liked the typical scene where a neighbour or friend walks in on somebody inspecting a corpse, which obviously means that that person must be the killer. Also the cops arrived in record time, that's some service for you.


Well, in the episode's defense they didn't necessarily assume he was the killer that was his perception of the situation. That's what made him panic and run away (making him look even more guilty, of course).

My major fear about this series is that the kidnapper/murderer will actually turn out to be a time-travelling (or something) version of the MC when he's older. Please don't let it be that.

I know. Still, you get what I mean. I've seen this kind of scene so often at this point that I groan instinctively whenever another story does it. Why not just have him freak out and do his Revival thing when he sees his mother on the floor? It seems unnecessary.

And I don't want to list my fears for the series here because I'd probably be burried with rocks if I did that

He's probably seen it a hundred times, too. That's why he was freaking out. But in all honesty, exactly the same thing was going through my head during that scene. It may serve as a useful time marker if the whole series is going to be jumping around a lot, though. We'll see.

But if the murderer turns out to be MC tables will be flipped. And my tables are still sore from Rokka no Yuusha.

ep 1

Man, that was great.

This revival concept is interesting, but I wonder how Satoru came about to having the ability to do so (assuming he wasn't born with it). And If he was born with it, the trigger must have been that murder case.

Liked the usage of blue butterlies. And by the looks of it, he has to be within a certain radius of where and when something bad is about to happen to see them.

I was thinking of this as a possibilty as well. Hopefully that won't be the case.

When he time travels back, the show seems to imply that there'd be only one of him in any specific world, otherwise he would have seen his doppelganger many times by now? I'd like to think you're safe...for now.

Good start. Characters and plot both have me hooked. It will be interesting to see where it goes from here.

That was definitely interesting. I'll have to go back and watch it again to catch all the little things that I missed.

For those interested, the use of the butterflies comes from chaos theory. Basically meaning that a small change can have unforeseen large effects. The name "butterfly effect" came from the use of the name "Does the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas?" as the title for a paper on this effect in 1972.

Since this show has the phenomenon where he can go back in time a few minutes and drastically change things (such as saving the boy's life), I'm sure we'll see a lot more of this kind of effect. I'm interested to see how much his time hopping will get out of control and how much it will change things. Though like other people have said, it's very easy to cop out with this type of plot device. I hope that's not the case here.

Episode 1: Flashing Before My Eyes

Oh my, that was definitely something alright. A very promising start to this show, the whole mystery aspect and time traveling sort of concept is actually being executed very well so far.

To go back that far and connect the pieces from there will be pretty exciting to see. Feel like I have to really pay attention to small details when watching this to make sure I don't miss anything.

Just know that this whole thing is going to be prevented and Sachiko will come back, hopefully. I wonder how much of the future he will change though by doing this considering he is going back almost 20 years

I am really excited for more, seeing this case unfold, looks like we have another mystery on our hands people.

Okay, that was pretty damn cool. It had my interest from the previews but now, after seeing Ep1, I'm even more into it. Great stuff so far and I can't wait to see where this goes.

When I first watched the first couple minutes , the first thing I thought was " oh the MC character is voiced by a haiyuu not a seiyuu , this might be interesting" becuase his line delivery is different
and I was right http://asianwiki.com/Shinnosuke_Mitsushima
Although a lot of the seiyuu can do deadpan lines ,but this guys cadence is totally different

Well it started really slow but then it sure escalated in spurts and towards the end.
Got me really interested.
Very promising indeed, although he is back as a .....

Ep. 1

Holy fking shit o.O This is my kind of anime! If it keeps up with this style and atmosphere it may end up being up there on my list of favorite anime; though I have to wonder if its going to go with singular-world time travel or multi-world time travel (consciousness travel really) since as it stands now could go either way. If it does the latter I'll honestly have even more respect for it since it'll be in the same vein as Steins;Gate. Add to it that the MC consciouness-wise is 29, instead of the usual teenage one and definitely have high hopes for this anime. Not to mention within 1 episode it managed to make me want the perpetrator to be killed in a truly gruesome way and this is just the start. I really hope it doesn't start slipping into 'exploitative' territory and stays just in the 'dark' area, especially considering the subject matter (child abductions).

Well, I'm intrigued...

I never go into anime expecting much, but I really wasn't expecting much from this one, in particular. It just didn't look that interesting to me, going in, especially considering I hadn't read the summary. Of course, I was pleasantly surprised. This was a pretty damn good opening episode. This looks like it will shape up to be one of the better mysteries I've watched over the last few seasons. I'm really curious as to how they'll handle a twenty-nine year old essentially being sent back in time to his childhood days, but still with his twenty-nine-year-old mind. I find the whole time travel "revival" concept interesting, but now that he's been sent back so far, I wonder if we'll see much more of it.

This is probably the most promising anime of the season, that I've seen so far, at least. That ending just grabbed me and is not letting go. I think I'll be anticipating this one the most, every week.
