Boku dake ga Inai Machi - A True Masterpiece
10 April 2016 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I've just recently started watching animes and after watching this one, I don't think I'll be able to enjoy the others as much. This is truly a masterpiece. The first episode alone will keep you hooked for the rest of the series. It's such an interesting and psychologically provocative story that will play with your feels, making you experience all sorts of emotions and keeping you on the edge of your seat while you watch as the narrative unfolds. It has beautiful animations, deep and really lovable characters and it touches on the subject of "Time Travel", which is almost always done wrong, but done perfectly well in this one. I don't want to spoil anything, I just think everyone should watch this and enjoy their well spent time whilst doing it.
