Sagrada Reset (Japanese: サクラダリセット Hepburn: Sakurada Risetto), also known as Sakurada Reset, is a Japanese light novel series written by Yutaka Kōno and illustrated by You Shiina. The series was published by Kadokawa Shoten between 2009 and 2012. A manga adaptation was published in Monthly Shōnen Ace in 2010. A 24-episode anime television series produced by David Production aired from April 5 to September 13, 2017. The anime is licensed by Sentai Filmworks in North America. The two-part live-action film premiered between March 25, 2017 and May 13, 2017.
The story is set in Sakurada (咲良田), a town where everyone possesses special abilities. The protagonist is Kei Asai, a boy with eidetic memory. Upon Sumire Soma's urging, Kei meets Misora Haruki, a quiet, withdrawn girl who can reset the world up to three days in the past. Thanks to his ability, Kei can remember the time Misora has reset, and thus Sumire suggests that Kei becomes the companion of Haruki to help her use her abilities for good leading to them becoming part of the Service Club—a club that accomplishes tasks given to them. The Service Club then becomes involved with the Administration Bureau, an organization that monitors all special abilities in Sakurada and orchestrates events in Sakurada according to their directives, utilizing the 'Witch' at their disposal. Unknown to the Service Club, their involvement with the Bureau puts them into a larger chain of events that only the Witch knows.
- Kei Asai (浅井 ケイ Asai Kei)
- Voiced by: Kaito Ishikawa
- Portrayed by: Shūhei Nomura
- One of the main characters. His ability is photographic memory; ever since entering Sakurada, he cannot forget anything down to the minute details, even if Haruki uses her Reset ability. He's a cunning character that can understand situations quickly and take full advantage of everything at his disposal to resolve the situation at hand.
- Misora Haruki (春埼 美空 Haruki Misora)
- Voiced by: Kana Hanazawa
- Portrayed by: Yuina Kuroshima
- One of the main characters. She possesses the ability to 'reset' the town of Sakurada for a maximum of three days. To do this, she must first 'save' at a specific time, after which, when she uses her Reset, the town of Sakurada will return to the saved time. A Reset can be done once per Save, and after a Reset, a Save can only be done 24 hours later. Her ability is not going back in time, but a literal reset; everything is reverted to its original state when the save was made. As a result, her own memories of the time between a Save and a Reset are also gone. This made her ability useless because she herself have no idea what she wants to change before committing a Reset, and everything will just repeat what happened before. The only person who can remember the events before the Reset is Kei.
- Sumire Sōma (相麻 菫 Sōma Sumire)
- Voiced by: Aoi Yūki
- Portrayed by: Yuna Taira
- A female classmate who was a victim during a Reset. Her ability is precognition based on a person's memories and emotions - she can 'see' an individual's future up to an unspecified point of time, and requires a conversation with a subject to function. The ability is strong enough that she starts to lose her sense of self after she discovers her ability. The future that she sees is not absolute either as they can change depending on external influences on the individual. Her suicide early in the series becomes the trigger that sets into motion the events of the series.
- Tomoki Nakano (中野 智樹 Nakano Tomoki)
- Voiced by: Takuya Eguchi
- Portrayed by: Kentarō
- A rock and roll singer who plays guitar and Kei's close friend. His ability is to send a voice he heard to a specific person, unbound by time and space and arriving exactly at the date and time intended. This ability transcends a Reset phenomena so even if a Reset is performed, the message would still be sent to the recipient at the specified time and date.
- Yōka Murase (村瀬 陽香 Murase Yōka)
- Voiced by: Yui Makino
- Portrayed by: Tina Tamashiro
- A young woman with the ability to apply an 'erase' capability to anything. The requirement is she must first state the target of the ability, the object/phenomena to be 'erased', and make physical contact with the target. For example, stating the target to be her hands and the object to be erased as a wall would apply the ability to her hands and enable her to erase a part of a wall with it. Her brother was a member of the Administration Bureau and is now deceased due to unmentioned circumstances, leading Yoka to swear revenge on the Administration Bureau for being involved in the events regarding her brother's death.
- Eri Oka (岡 絵里 Oka Eri)
- Voiced by: Yūka Aisaka
- Portrayed by: Yuri Tsunematsu
- Kei and Misora's junior in their high school. Her ability is memory manipulation via eye contact; if she maintains eye contact with a person for 5 seconds, she can change the person's memories - inserting or deleting memories that she wants, thus making her able to 'seal' other people's abilities as she can make them forget how to use their abilities. Originally, she was known as Eri Fujikawa, but after meeting Kei, who helped her escape from her abusive father, she took her mother's maiden name. She changed herself after the event, proclaiming that she wants to be more powerful and capable than Kei leading to her being hostile against Kei, but not truly hating him. Her name is read the same as "okaeri" - a Japanese phrase meaning "Welcome home".
- Seika Nono (野ノ尾 盛夏 Nono Seika)
- Voiced by: Sachika Misawa
- A girl with the ability to access the senses of any cat in Sakurada whenever she is asleep. As long as the cat is awake, then she can access its senses and access the cat's memories.
- Masamune Urachi (浦地 正宗 Urachi Masamune)
- Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai
- Played by: Mitsuhiro Oikawa
- The Sakurada City Administration Bureau task force's leader. His ability is to 'reset' a particular person or object to an earlier 'version' of them (up to maximum of 2 years). His ability is similar to Haruki's Reset although it only affects objects he can make physical contact with.
- Sasane Ukawa (宇川 沙々音 Ukawa Sasane)
- Played by: Rei Okamoto
- An Administration Bureau member with the power to manipulate the properties of objects. Her power requires her to wear special rings in her fingers that would determine what kind of effects she wants to impose on an object. Her ability is seemingly unlimited in its capabilities however exactly 1 minute is needed before she can activate her ability again after the end of its first usage.
- Yōsuke Sakagami (坂上 央介 Sakagami Yōsuke)
- Voiced by: Yūichi Iguchi
- Played by: Kenshiro Iwai
- Kei's upperclassman with the power to copy abilities, however he needs to be in proximity with the target to use his ability. Furthermore, his Copy ability can be used to transfer someone's abilities to another person with him acting as the 'bridge' between the 2 people. For example, he can initiate a Copy on Kei and 'transfer' it to Haruki while he's in proximity with both of them. However, the copied abilities would be gone as soon as he's out of proximity of his targets.
- Mirai Minami (皆実 未来 Minami Mirai)
- Voiced by: Yuki Yamada
- Played by: Yuuka Yano
- Kei and Haruki's classmate who survived an accident thanks to a Reset. She's interested in supernatural phenomena, thus she became happy when she found out that her ability is to turn into a "Ghost" for a period of time although the rules regarding her ability are undefined.
- Shintarō Tsushima (津島 信太郎 Tsushima Shintarō)
- Voiced by: Yōji Ueda
- Played by: Hisashi Yoshizawa
- An Administration Bureau member and a school teacher at Ashiharabashi High School, which both Kei, Haruki and their friends attend. He serves as the middle man between the Bureau and the Service Club, giving out tasks by the Bureau to the Service Club and only providing some hints to Kei to help solve the tasks.
- Kagaya (加賀屋 Kagaya)
- Voiced by: Shigeo Kiyama
- Played by: Tomomi Maruyama
- An Administration Bureau member whose ability is to perform a 'time lock' on any physical object that his right hand touches and only his left hand can undo the 'time lock'. The 'time lock' enables the physical object he touched to be rendered immune to all physical phenomena thus they're also unaffected by the effects of time itself and is even unaffected by Haruki's 'Reset' ability. His ability is used by the Bureau to confine people or lock objects of interest.
- Sakuin (索引 Sakuin)
- Played by: Arisa Nakajima
- Another member of the Administration Bureau. Her ability allows her to detect any lie from a person's spoken words and works similarly to a synesthesia as she can see 'colors' from a person's speech which allows her to determine if they're telling the truth or not.
- Hitsūchikun (非通知くん Hitsūchikun)
- Voiced by: Kōtarō Nishiyama
- A weak, sickly boy who has mysophobia, so he can't eat any food. Although to compensate for his disease, his ability allows him to convert 'information' into nutrient which allows him to survive. He can accidentally kill people if his ability drains a target's information beyond their limit. To keep this ability in check, the Administration Bureau arranged for him a set up so he can work as informant, and collect information in way that is safer for other human. When called, he will fake a destination number not found announcement and have to be called continuously until he finally answer. Hitsuuchi is his nickname, referring to the message when phone call failed to connect (such as destination number not found).
- Hiroyuki Sasano (佐々野 宏幸 Sasano Hiroyuki)
- Voiced by: Hiroshi Naka
- Played by: Goro Oishi
- A citizen of Sakurada who has the ability to create 'scenarios' in the picture that he takes using a specific camera model; the pictures taken by him are imbued with his ability, thus allowing anyone to go into the 'scenario' inside a picture and relieve it once they tear down the picture. However, the 'scenario' inside the picture only lasts for 10 minutes. It is unknown whether his ability can alter the future if a person decides to make a drastic change while in a 'scenario' or if the effects of events in a 'scenario' can affect the current world. He was involved with the Bureau's early years and was in a relationship with the Witch when they were younger.
- Yoko Asai (浅井 よこ Asai Yoko)
- Played by: Akiko Yagi
- Kei's mother. She does not live in Sakurada, and is unaware that Kei lives there now. Kei later meets her again outside of Sakurada and finds out that she gave birth to his sister named Megumi.
- Witch (魔女 Majō)
- Voiced by: Sayaka Ohara
- Played by: Mariko Kaga
- An elderly woman who has the ability to see the future. The Bureau keeps her confined for their use and thus she is treated as a 'tool'. She doesn't tell Kei her name and instead tells him to call her a 'Witch' instead. She and Sasano were in a relationship but separated once the Bureau found out about her ability. It is hinted that she's the one that orchestrated the events of the series due to her influence on Kei when he was younger. Her ability is simulation rather than precognition allowing her to perform very accurate simulations of events that will happen in Sakurada. Misora's Reset ability can't affect it simply because Reset itself is already a factor in any simulated events. However, the simulations she performs are not certain and can be influenced by certain unknown factors that she does not foresee. It is hinted that Sumire's precognition ability can affect her simulations.
- Sawako Sera (世良 佐和子 Sera Sawako)
- Voiced by: Rikako Aida
- Michiru (ミチル Michiru)
- Voiced by: Maaya Uchida
- A girl with ability to pull other people into her dream as long as they sleep nearby her. She created an alternate persona named Chiruchiru in her dream world which grants her wishes thus making her ability as omnipotence in a dream world. Chiruchiru and Michiru is the Japanese name of Tytyl and Mytyl, the siblings in The Blue Bird.
