TV Station:Netflix Japan

29-year-old Fujinuma Satoru aspires to be a manga artist. However, he cannot get ahead and has to work part-time to make a living. Satoru possesses a special ability called “revival” which rewinds a scene so that he can prevent “bad things” from happening, but is troubled that it is beyond his control. One day, Satoru comes back home to find that his mother Sachiko has been killed. He goes after her murderer but gets set up and ends up being pursued as the murderer of his mother. Wanting to prevent his mother’s death, Satoru wishes hard for “revival” and is sent back 18 years into the past to the time when he was a fifth-grade elementary school student. This is right before his classmate Hinazuki Kayo got caught up in the series of child abduction and murder cases and became a victim. Convinced that this case is connected to his mother’s murder, Satoru resolves to chase after the truth with help from his classmate Kobayashi Kenya and his form teacher Yashiro Gaku.

(Watched 19/10/2019) I tried. I really wanted to like this dorama. Sorry, but I couldn't. It was far too slow (it should have been a movie), characters motivations were not correctly explained, and there were certain details in the story that just didn't make sense (the doctor, for instance. I mean, would a doctor really say that?). At the same time, everything seemed to be far too obvious (I'll just say "finger movement" here). But, to me, the story was too unbelievable and, despite the slow pace, it felt rushed too. Definitely not my cup of tea. I loved the music and Totsugi Shigeyuki, though.

Enjoyable - time travelling dramas are pretty much en vogue this season. I watched three in two months. Anyway - this one was to my liking as it added an interesting mystery element. I have to say I figured out something key pretty early on so one specific twist didn't work for me. Hope Netflix adds more dramas of this quality level to their library.
