Japanese Title: RErideD－刻越えのデリダ－ | RErideD: Tokigoe no Derida
The year is 2050.
A young engineer named Derrida Yvain became famous thanks to his contribution with the development of ‘Autonomous Machine DZ’ at Rebuild, the manufacturing company founded by his father. One day, Derrida and his colleague Nathan find a serious flaw in the “DZ”s and try to warn their boss but are ignored.
Although aware of the danger, they reluctantly decide to put off taking any measures and go to Nathan’s daughter Mage’s birthday party.
Next day, after spending a peaceful time, Derrida and Nathan are suddenly attacked by unknown forces. At the end of the escape, Derrida falls into a cold sleep machine and 10 years later, he wakes up to a devastated world in the middle of a war. Being attacked by a group of out of control DZs, Derrida almost gives up but he recall’s Nathan’s last words.
‘Take care of Mage.’
Despite the harsh fate that has fallen upon him, Derrida sets off to seek Mage.
Beyond the time, we reunite — This is the story of a journey for hope.
I like time travel stories. They are absurd and they try too hard to justify a concept that is too hard to grasp even in Terminator. I also like science fiction. It’s my genre of choice from video games to literature. RErideD has both but it lacks a very important ingredient: suspense. The story had a lot of potential, that is in writing. In execution the characters are too vague and the interactions between them are lukewarm the least. The protagonist is your run-of-the-mill scientist who has too many things to risk and had that great idea once which he doesn’t want to pursue. He is too close to his best friend and his daughter and apart from his father who is a scientist as well. The villain is laughable and I don’t think I even remember his name.
I don’t know how a story that doesn’t have a competent villain and an interesting protagonist is going to move forward, but I won’t be here to find out. This is one time travel story that won’t pass the test of time.
