This series is pretty interesting to me.
The concept, the characters, most especially the timeline (timeloop -whatever you want to call it) — it’s most definitely not the first time that the topic / concept has been used but it was delivered differently.
I like the fact that Kimura played both the main character: Llyod, and a secondary character: Reiji. Yep, you saw the correctly, I only see Reiji as a secondary character. I know if not because of him then Lloyd wouldn’t be there, but reasons.
I did not see the twist coming though. SPOILER: (please highlight after this to see the content) [ I couldn’t believe that it was Nanase who “mothered” the highschool girl and I can’t believe she has a MPD (multiple personality disorder). I cannot believe as well that she, well her other self Reiko, killed their parents.]
It was very refreshing. A bit of comedy, drama and action rolled into one.
KimuTaku’s acting was superb. From being Reiji, he totally morphs into this new character as Lloyd.

I like the idea that his body will eventually be returned to Reiji at the end of the series.
I would love this series to be longer, but 10 episodes will suffice. It doesn’t drag or get boring.
This was rated 7.1/10 by IMDb which you can see here.
Do watch it here. I highly recommend it to those who love sci-fi, action, and those time travel kind of stuff or those people who love futuristics stories (please be reminded though that it was set in 2013).
