ERASED episode 07
Okay, I know for sure now. I want to make it perfectly clear that this post will contain spoilers as I am finally certain of what’s about to happen now. They made quite the slipup if you ask me. I don’t think it was on purpose.
We know that the protagonist’s plan didn’t work out right. The day of the murder was only slightly delayed. That poor girl still ended up being killed. The protagonist ended up going back to his ‘own time’ and found out that things were just as bad as before. He had one person that believed him, Airi-chan of course, but that didn’t make much of a difference.
She tried to help him but instead only became bait to bring the police to Satoru. He got arrested, saw that the killer was there to make sure that he took the fall for his crime, and begged (god?) to get sent back to the past one more time in order to try and prevent Kayo-chan, other girls and his own mother from getting killed by this psychopath.
But like I said; they made a mistake (or did they?) when they decided to have the protagonist go back again to make sure that Kayo-chan doesn’t go home to her parents. He thinks that her parents are responsible for her death, so he decided to make sure that she didn’t go home, that Jun-kun, that anti-social guy, had an alibi so that he couldn’t be framed for murder again and he even told his friends about what was going on in order to get their help. Kayo-chan started living in an old bus and still the murderer found her. Her mother and her boyfriend did not even know she was missing, Jun-kun had an alibi which only leaves their homeroom teacher. I am certain that he’s the one.
