I first heard about Erased because some one compared it to Happy Sugar Life. As a fan of horror and thriller anime, and seeing as the series is currently streaming on Netflix, I decided to give it a watch. And boy I’m glad I did!
While Erased deals with subjects like child abduction and abuse, the heart of the series is about empathy, working through trauma, and friendship. Tonally, it is a bizarre hybrid between a psychological thriller and a relationship drama.
So if you’re like me and enjoy Weathering With You and Happy Sugar life you need to watch Erased this Halloween season.
