Unknown Number-kun (VA: Kotaro Nishiyama)
Information center. He doesn’t like meeting people in real life, so he is contacted via phone. He is so careful that he even uses a voice transformer so he doesn’t get found out by someone.
Comment from Nishiyama
‘Sagrada Reset is a work that catches everybody’s attention with its uniqueness. The more you know it, the better it gets. There might be something that gives my character away. So listen very well!’
Sera Sawako (VA: Rikako Aida)
First year at Ashiharabashi high school, in the same year as Kei and Haruki. She is a serious character that won’t break the rules.
Comment from Aida
‘I felt like the work is made up of a beautifully constructed world, where the time seems to flow leisurely and the characters all have their own problems and heartbreaks. I hope you can also appreciate Sawako, who fights her various conflicts and is rather serious.’
Yousuke Sakagami (VA: Yuichi Iguchi)
The former student council president of Nanasaku middle school. He will go to a high school outside of Sakurada. He left Sakurada once in his third year of middle school, but for some reason he came back.
Comment from Iguchi
‘His special power doesn’t influence things directly and can’t work on himself. He can grant people their wishes and he is the type of person that can’t say no to anybody. There are many similarities between me and my character, so I sometimes wanted to scold him. What does he wish for himself and for whose sake does he use his power? I hope you will look forward to finding it out.’
The Witch (VA: Sayaka Ohara)
An elderly woman, close to the top of the management. The management is there to take care of Sakurada, they keep the names of individuals with powers secret. She can see into the future.
Comment from Ohara
‘While this fantasy stands above time and space, I was really amazed at the building of the world, including the philosophical and logical aspects. Even though she doesn’t have a name, I will try my best and survive as the witch.’
Tsushima Shintaro (VA: Yoji Ueda)
A teacher at Ashiharabashi high school. Works at the Administration Bureau. He is also the advisor of Kei’s service club at school.
Comment from Ueda
‘During the recording for the anime this time, they even paid attention to the slightest nuances. I hope I was able to express with Tsushima’s words how he, who seems well at first but has so many problems, is so unsure and he is holding back.’
The story of Sagrada Reset takes place in the town of Sakurada, where around half of its residents hold special abilities. Kei Asai has the ability ‘Memory Retention’, which allows him to retain the memory of anything that happened in the past. Misora Haruki has the ability to ‘reset’ the world back to up to 3 days in the past. When Misora resets the world, it also affects her, and she loses her memories of before the reset. By teaming up with Kei, who can remember anything no matter what, they can essentially change the past. 2 years ago, they lost their classmate Sumire Souma due to the effect of a reset. Since then, the pair have been part of the school’s ‘Service Club’ and take on the requests of their fellow students while searching for a way to bring back Sumire. One day, they receive a request to bring back a dead cat and from that day on everything changes.
The anime series is going to begin on 5 April, and is going to host a special talk show at the huge anime event ‘AnimeJapan2017’.
