Sakurada Reset anime time-travels this spring

Yutaka Kouno’s light novel Sakurada Reset, a sci-fi fantasy where supernatural powers are the norm, is getting an anime series this spring. The show’s official website revealed the news yesterday, along with the anime’s staff and a teaser visual. Ready for a time-travelling tale from the director of Non Non Biyori and Tanaka-kun is Always Listless? We sure are!


Yep, Shinya Kawatsura is directing this anime at Code Geass and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure studio david Production. Meanwhile, Katsuhiko Takayama of Future Diary is in charge of scripts, and Tomoyui Shitaya of Food Wars! is designing the characters.

The story is set in a town called Sakurada, where two members of their school’s Service Club, Kei Asai and Misora Haruki, resolve cases and protect the peace between power and non-power users. Being amongst about half of the population possessing powers, Kei can perfectly memorise anything he sees or hears, and Misora can “reset” time by three days. While solving problems for their fellow students, Kei learns about the MacGuffin stone. It looks pretty dull and useless, but it happens to be an anchor for the existence of all of Sakurada.

Kouno published the first novel illustrated by You Shiina in 2009, and the seventh and final volume was released in 2012. The first volume subsequently inspired a manga in 2010, launched by Masahiko Yoshihara in Kadokawa’s Shonen Ace magazine. The novels are also inspiring two live-action films, which will star Yuina Kuroshima, and Shuuhei Nomura of both Chihayafuru live-action films.
