ReLIFE is a wonderful manga and anime

The anime adaptation of ReLIFE aired in 2016 and I absolutely fell in love with it. The humor was on point, the characters lovable and relatable and being 30 right now makes me identify with the main character.

If one day you were offered a pill that could make you a high school student again, would you consider taking it? Well, for the main character Kaizaki Arata it did not take too long to agree. Despite being a young 27-year-old guy he is already jobless, with no money in his pocket and no girlfriend by his side. But fate gives him one more chance in a face of Yoake Ryou—representative of a ReLIFE project, who offers him a possibility to become 10 years younger and start his life once again.

After the anime ended, I was so excited and curious to see what was going to happen with them that in the end I started reading the manga, instead of just keep waiting for a possible second season. (if you don’t know, I usually avoid reading manga that has an anime adaptation, and usually I don’t read much manga anyway).

I HIGHLY recommend that you give both anime and manga a chance. The manga is colored and read in vertical, like a webtoon (I think it is actually a webtoon), but don’t let that keep you from reading it, because you won’t regret it. It ended recently, and left me happy for having read a beautiful story, but sad for having to say goodbye to all these beloved characters.


  1. I haven’t watched the anime, but I absolutely loved the manga. I loved that it is in colour! The characters are likeable and the idea of a second chance at life is always interesting. 🙂
