Satoru is 29 years old, a mangaka (manga artist) and works as a pizza delivery man. His life is apparently ordinary, but he has a special skill: when he is near the place where some incident that puts someone’s life at risk occurs, he goes back a few minutes in time to avoid it.
These regressions occur involuntarily and Satoru perceives them as deja vu, a sensation that helps him to be aware of the signs around him and identify where the danger lies in order to intercede. One night, Satoru arrives at the scene of a murder and becomes the main suspect; the regression takes him not a few minutes but 18 years, when he was in primary school.
Satoru will have to discover the relationship between the events that occurred then and the murder of his present and try to change the past. Anime like Erased involves time travel, saving people from dying, fascinating main characters and a lot of twists and turns.

When Light Yagami lifted a dark notebook from the ground, which had mysteriously descended on his high school campus, he never imagined that this would be the modus operandi to take his ideals of justice to another level, much less represent the stairway to the most radical change in his life.
The Death Note, an ordinary looking black notebook, has the property of killing anyone you want by writing the victim’s name on its pages, taking into account the face of the victim. Using this, Light will grant death to any criminal, who under his criteria, is totally repugnant, in order to clean the criminality of this world.
On the other side, the brilliant “L” will use his wit to try and uncover who the killer is, and how to stop him. This classic anime doesn’t involve time travel, but the mechanics, feel and tone are very similar and an appropriate recommendation for fans of anime like Erased.
