Boku dake ga Inai Machi (The Town Where Only I Am Missing), the award-nominated manga by Kei Sanbe, is being adapted into a Noitamina TV anime series and a live-action film, both due for release next year. After the first preview and key visual were unveiled last week, the anime’s official website has now released a closer look at the character designs by Blue Exorcist’s Keigo Sasaki.
Satoru Fujinuma – aged 29, he’s a struggling manga artist and pizza delivery man with a power called Revival, which allows him to turn back time.
Satoru aged 10 – as a fifth-grader, Satoru was a big fan of a show called Wonder Guy.
Airi Katagiri – a cheerful and curious high school student who works part time at a pizza shop to earn the money to realise her dreams.
Kayo Hinadzuki – Satoru’s withdrawn classmate at elementary school. When Satoru goes back in time to try and prevent his mother’s death, he lands himself back in fifth grade, just before Kayo disappeared.
