Twenty-nine-year-old Satoru Fujinuma is floundering through life. Amid his daily drudgery, he finds himself in the grip of an incredible, inexplicable, and uncontrollable phenomenon that rewinds time, a condition that seems to only make his drab life worse. But then, one day, everything changes. A terrible incident forever changes Satoru’s life as he knows it…and with it, comes a “Revival” that sends Satoru eighteen years into the past! In the body of his boyhood self, Satoru encounters sights he never imagined he would see again–the smile of his mother, alive and well, his old friends, and Kayo Hinazuki, the girl who was kidnapped and murdered when he was a boy the first time around. To return to the present and prevent the tragedy that brought him back to his childhood in the first place, Satoru begins plotting a way to change Hinazuki’s fate…But up against the clock and a faceless evil, does eleven-year-old Satoru even stand a chance?
A little while back, i watched and LOVED the anime, so i was very excited to immerse myself again in such a powerful story. This first volume was incredible, i only have love for this series and all i can do is recommend it. You will fall in love with the characters and get hit in the feels more than once. It had me to close to tears a couple of times. It’s the kind of story that just stays with you long after you are done reading. this is definitely one of my favorite manga/anime so far. Both Satoru and Kayo are great characters. I love them both so freaking much. All i want to do is protect Kayo. ❤ I also really like all the side characters, such a great cast, adding a very nice touch to the story. It wouldn’t have the same effect if we didn’t care for them, but i did, with all my heart. This first volume was great. The art is awesome and it has the cutest cover. I only have love to give to this story, it’s a must read.
I don’t want to say more, i just want everybody to read it (or watch it if you want to, the anime is perfect)
