Beautiful adaptation of the manga
18 December 2017 | by minodrajapakshaSee all my reviews

I was not expecting this live action series to be as good as it was. The direction was stellar and always made sure to draw your eye to crucial details in scenery. The acting is also top notch, even the child actors, everyone fit their roles well.

Story wise it was emotionally fulfilling and the characters go through a lot of development. The mystery of who the killer is may be a bit obvious, but it isn't the focal point of the whole series so I believe it can be excused.

Music was always utilized well and never used unnecessarily, adding to the impact the soundtrack has when used. The theme song is pretty nice too, though it would be nice if Netflix at least translated it for the final episode.

If you were to choose between watching this and the anime, you should definitely watch this live action series, as it has much better direction and stronger storytelling. If you have seen the anime and are wary about this series, I can confirm this is actually a much better version of ERASED than the anime is.

9.5/10
