In the town of Sakurada, half the population possess unique powers.
Its inhabitants live in peace, with the special powers observed by the Administration Bureau.
"I want to erase the tears of the person in front of me." "I want my voice to reach somebody."
The town's powers were born to grant kind, tender wishes such as these.
Kei Asai has the power of 'Memory Keep', which allows the him to fully remember past experiences.
Misora Haruki has the power of 'Reset', which can make the world go back up to 3 days.
When Misora uses this power, she herself also loses her memories of the time before the Reset, but she teams up with Kei, who will not forget no matter what happens. Together they can remake the past and change the present.
However, there is a 'past' that they cannot change. 2 years before, Kei's classmate, Sumire Souma, was lost thanks to the effect of a Reset.
Kei and Misora spend their days as part of the 'Volunteer Club' , where they fulfil requests from other students. At the same time, they search for a way to bring back Sumire.
They suddenly get a very unexpected request- "I want you to bring back my dead cat."
In order to erase the 'sadness' of the past, this boy and girl will jump through time, changing the world.
Sagrada Reset is based on a light novel series written by Yutaka Kono with illustrations by You Shiina. There are currently five volumes available. A manga adaptation was serialized in Kadokawa Shoten’s Monthly Shonen Ace, written by Masahiko Yoshihara with seven chapters available. A two part live action movie adaptation was announced and the first part aired on 25 March 2017. The second part is scheduled to be released on 13 May 2017.
Kei and Asuna are high school students and members of the ‘service club’ at school. Members of the club use their abilities to solve a variety of problems. One day they get a request from a girl named Youka Murase, who wants them to revive her dead cat. However, there were many things that were unclear with the request. When they request information from Utsuuchi-kun, the mysterious item ‘MacGuffin’ comes up.
Minami Mirai, the girl who appeared before Kei, has lost her memories. According to ‘Hitsuchi-kun’, someone sucked out all the information with their ability. The accident they worked on turns into a murder case.
Youka Murase has the ability to ‘Erase all the things she touches’. She got closer to Kei for the sole purpose of getting her hands on ’McGuffin.’ Now she wants to take the lives of Kei and Haruki using her ability.
Three months earlier. Kei and Haruki had just had their high school entrance ceremony and were convinced by Tsushima to join the Service Club. They then get their first request. A girl named Sawako Sera is trapped in a marble because of her ability. Tsushima tells them to do a reset and look at the situation before the incident. Instead of commanding a reset, Kei instead talks to Sawako Sera.
Eri Oka, the girl with the red eyes, doesn’t trust Kei and says she will steal Haruki’s ability to reset. Back in the day, Kei helped her get over a difficult time with her family, but she says she hates the Kei now, who had changed compared to before. Murase, who starts to investigate Oka due to Kei’s request, has an encounter with her and gets attacked.
Eri Oka, who managed to steal Kei’s ability with the picture ability, tries to rob Haruki’s reset ability, while the ‘System without a name’ known as ‘Witch’ advances with the plan. Sasano also starts to advance, without revealing the secret to his ability. And Eri Oka, who wants to make the ability of the witch her own as well, starts to attack the bureau.
Four years ago, it was the summer vacation in the 6th grade of elementary school when he was invited in Sakurada. It was the first time Kei saw an ‘ability’ and because he became interested in Sakurada and the abilities that come with living in the town, he started to investigate them. And while doing it, his own ability started to develop. And then Kei got contacted by the bureau for his memory ability. That’s when he met a woman called Sakuin-san.
Kei was absent from school due to a cold. Mirai Minami tells Haruki to go and visit Kei to see if he is all right, because it shows you care and because a cold and love have nothing to do with each other. And then she tells her how to cure a cold, ‘If you kiss, the cold will be cured.’ Without having anything to say against it, Haruki goes to visit Kei.
