⚠ The answer below contains spoilers. The manga skipped a chapter which took place before the first Revival in the anime. This chapter concentrates on the bond between Airi and Satoru, when he saves someone's (I won't spoil) life with her help. When Satoru and his mother meet Airi in the parking lot, in the anime, he uses Revival only once to spot the ...

⚠ The answer below contains spoilers. It is never stated in the anime nor in the manga how he obtained this ability. We know that after the events in the last episode, he loses it and it never occurs again. As the Boku Dake Wiki says: Revival (再上映 (リバイバル), Ribaiburu, lit. "Rerun") is an involuntary special phenomenon exclusive to Satoru that allows him ...

As this answer discusses, in the manga Airi shows up a few times while Satoru is recovering after his coma, although they never really directly interact. While the ending of the manga is quite different to that of the anime, the very last scene is the same:

Based on the anime and the manga, the last scene is Satoru going under the bridge where he hid with Airi after he was accused of murdering his mother. There he used his hands to form a rectangle, and as he saw through the rectangle, he saw Airi. There is no continuation of this story, but considering that Hinazuki Kayo ends up with one of their friends (...

SPOILERS: There's no objective answer that I've encountered, however this is my interpretation; Literal: Satoru being drowned. Figurative: Satoru's old life being "washed away" after nearly being drowned and losing his memory.

It is dramatically changed as it is mentioned in What are the differences between the manga and the anime adaptation and where does the anime diverge? ⚠ The answer below contains spoilers. The end of the anime is dramatically changed. In the manga, the story follows a bit of a longer period of time after Satoru can walk. The ending takes place in a ...

I don't think there is an official given reason for it, but after going over the story, I believe the power came about in response to Satoru's guilt. As a child, he made no real effort to connect with Kayo. After she died, he felt awful for not doing anything to help her. His mother did her best to help him forget about what happened and let it go, and he ...

To me, there are two explanations for this. One is that, like Kenya said, Satoru imagined the entire sequence of events, but not just when he was in his vegetative coma, but also before Kayo is to be killed by Yashiro. It could be that Satoru suffers from dissociative identity disorder and his intuition was acting as 'Revival' Satoru the entire time. Or, ...

All of these references point to similar ideas. Erased, Anohana and Death Note all have similar plot lines dealing with death: Erased 29 year old Satoru Fujinuma is sent back in time 18 years to prevent the events leading to his mother's death, which began with a series of kidnappings in his 5th grade year. Anohana Five childhood companions reunite when ...

I don't have a copy on hand to check, but according to the Death Note Wiki: "in Death Note 13: How to Read, Tsugumi Ohba states that there was no underlying reason for his choice of apples. He is quoted as saying that he liked the way the red apples contrast with Ryuk's dark appearance." So so much for that idea. Doesn't surprise anyone. A lot of ...

Forbidden fruit - Death Note makes many references to Christianity. The apple is popularly thought to be the forbidden fruit in Genesis, which the snake told Eve would make her smarter, open her eyes, and elevate her to the status of God. ... Eating the apple was the Original sin and the first symbol of temptation. Here is an answer to a similar question. ...

In this case, it remains to be seen. Airi does stand up for Satoru several times, but they never really are seen engaing in any actions that would quite sum up to a 'romance', more of a relationship built using mutual trust and help.

Recently read a review on this anime that made me want to cry on this ability, while it isn't how he got it, it is a lot like Butterfly Effect, the movie. Basically, the skill becomes chaos theory embodied in him as the anime goes on, but is never explained how it starts. We just never see the results really until the end.

Satoru simply wanted him to do something, anything, to make sure Kaya would stay safe. He suggested calling the police and getting the counselors to check in again. Satoru wanted the teacher to speed up the process because he was planning to wait until the next school break (Spring, if I remember correctly.)
