As told by Satoru, he usually goes back 1 to 5 minutes back in time during Revival.

At the very first glance, he notices a bruise on her knees. He notices that kayo is isolated and hardly talks to any other students.
The 29-year-old brain is puzzled by all that’s happening around him and leaves the school midway for the day. He goes to his house where he meets his mom who is also younger.
The 29-year-old brain is puzzled by all that’s happening around him and leaves the school midway for the day.
He goes to his house where he meets his mom who is also younger. After looking at his mother alive, years start falling down his cheeks.
He also thanked his mother for the meal and everything else. In school, Satoru is friends with four other boys.
Among them, Kenya notices that there is something different about Satoru’s personality.
Also, he is the one who advises reading the essay written by Kayo. After reading it, he clearly understands that she is being abused at her home.
He recalls that before the incident took place, Kayo spent time alone in a park till it got dark.
So, in order to save his mother from being murdered in the future, he decides to put a stop to the chain reaction.
He tells his mother that he is going to invite five people for his birthday which would be on March 2.
Satoru gives the first invitation to kayo in the park. She too says that it is easier to talk to Fujinuma recently.
The episode ends with a determined Satoru trying his best to plan and stop the kidnapping of Kayo Hinazuki.
The second episode was better than the previous one. Within the first five minutes, we see 29-year-old Satoru in the body of 11 years old.
And although he’s an adult who is already aware of Revival, he too is shocked and astonished at the situation.
A few times, he said his thoughts aloud and realized it after saying it. The mystery element of the show gets more fitting and makes the episode overall interesting.
Kayo starts talking to Satoru and appreciates him extending the hand of friendship and being entirely truthful about it.
Episode 2 makes me want to watch the next episode just after finishing it.
