Start the new year by getting ERASED!

…Wait, what?

Earlier today, the official ERASED (Boku Dake ga Inai Machi) anime website updated with a new promotional video. The 90-second video offers a brief sample of opening theme Re: Re: by Asian Kung-Fu Generation.

Re: Re: was originally recorded for Asian Kung-Fu Generation’s début album, Sorufa, which hit retailers in 2004. The version used in ERASED will be a new recording made specifically for the show.

ERASED is based on Kei Sanbe’s Boku dake ga Inai Machi manga series. Tomohiko Ito (Sword Art Online, Silver Spoon) is directing the project at A-1 Pictures, with Keigo Sasaki (Blue Exorcist, Night Raid 1931) in charge of character designs. Yuki Kajiura (Fate/Zero, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) is providing the show’s musical score, as Taku Kishimoto (Bunny Drop) writes the scripts.

The series première is slated for January 7, 2016. Aniplex of America announced that they acquired the title in December. Crunchyroll will stream ERASED as it airs in Japan.

The first promotional video for the series, which we’ve provided below, hit the web on Christmas.
