Erased Episode 7 Summary
Erased episode 7 begins with Satoru realising that the killer will get away. In despair and deep anguish, he hopes to get one more chance at revival. One more chance to change the future and save his loved ones. In a few moments, he is back in the museum with Kayo. Upon seeing Hinazuki, tears of relief and gratefulness fall down his cheeks. The duo is joined by their friends and they all enjoy the visit to the museum.
The next day in school, Kenya confronts Satoru about his changed personality and his willingness to help which no longer is a facade. The question “ Who are you” shocks Satoru. But he gives a very simple and honest answer to this question- a superhero. A superhero who wants to save his loved ones from getting killed or harmed in any way. Kenya feels delighted to hear such an answer and tells Satoru that he knew about Hinazuki’s abuse for a long time. But he could not muster up the courage to help her. 1st March or the X day goes by safely and their birthday arrives.

After the cake cutting, Satoru excuses himself to put his plan into action. He takes care of Yuuri by making a strong alibi for him. Satoru does this by breaking the window. The next part of his plan was to push Kayo’s mother down the stairs. When he was about to do it, Kenya comes and stops him. He convinces Satoru to choose the right path. While thinking about Kenya’s remarks, Satoru comes up with a new plan. He acknowledges that he needs help and Kenya agrees. Both the boys come back to the party. After the party gets over, Satoru goes with Hinazuki to drop her. In the middle of the way, Satoru tells Kayo that he will ”abduct her”.
Both of them go to an abandoned bus which was near Izumi elementary school. Kenya waits for them and helps them to make the place more suitable for Hinazuki. Satoru goes back after settling her and asks his mother whether she got a call from Hinazuki’s mother. As she denies it, Satoru understands that sequence of events is changing. The next night when Hinazuki is sleeping, a man enters the bus and the episode ends.

This was quite an interesting episode to watch because of a few things. Satoru acknowledges his true self as a ‘superhero’. Also, a lot of conversation that takes place between children do carry heartfelt messages that apply to all irrespective of their ages. Also when the young Satoru was about to push Kayo’s mother off the stairs, his eyes turned red. The same shade of red that the killer is also seen with. It may signify one’s evil intention. Now, the question is whether the man entering the bus is the killer or not? Will Kayo survive the night?
