10. Re: Creators
Re: Creators is an action, fantasy anime television series that aired for 1 season, from April 8, 2017 to September 16, 2017.
- The series features Sota Mizushino, a high school student who is literally dragged into a world of anime through his computer.
- The world is made up of characters created by other people. So imagine if you wrote a story, then ended up in a world where you actually met them!
- Of course, sometimes we wouldn’t want to meet the characters of our imagination!
