Both series feature a main character that, through a miraculous event of self-justice, are put in a youthful setting in hopes to solve a major problem in their lives. While Erased focuses on the character progression of those around the main character, ReLIFE is primarily focused on the main character himself.
Although both stories are presented as a mature personality in a younger body-- there are still clear differences in the tone, considering Erased is based on a middle school life, while ReLIFE is set in a final year of high school. Tension is much lower in ReLIFE, since it's not a murder mystery, but it still has great moments of conflict and progression. I couldn't recommend ReLIFE more if you enjoyed Erased. read more
If you liked ERASED you will probably have fun with ReLIFE. I see a similar premise, the idea of turning back time (less literal in ReLIFE), and themes in these two series. ReLIFE is a bit more lighthearted than ERASED, though I suppose both have a heartwarming side.
- The Mc is the main similarity, they are both adults in their late 20's with the appearance of a much younger body. In boku dake ga inai machi because of the ability of "revival"/time travel and in Relife because of a drug being tested.
Besides, Both were characters that had lost propose has they grew old, and were trapped in jobs they did not wish for.
- Both Boku and ReLife manage to combine dramatic scenes with comedy. However, Boku dake ga inai machi has a more dramatic feel to it than ReLife, which is much more humorous.
-Both Kayo and Chizuru, the main female characters, are outcasts and lonesome with little social skills. read more
-The MCs are adults who become young again. (BokuMachi is through time travel, while ReLife is through taking a pill)
-Both MCs fall in love with a girl, while in their younger selves.
-While BokuMachi is focused on preventing murder, ReLife is about interacting with people (his classmates) so that the MC can get a job.
-The plots/genres are quite different: BokuMachi being more psychological, and ReLife being more comedic.
So, if you like MCs becoming their younger selves again (while retaining the mind of an adult), give these animes a go.
ReLife and ERASED both deal with the main character reversing time to fix past mistakes. In ReLife, the main character is given the chance to experience high school again to try and help him better understand how to live his adult life, while in Boku dake ga Inai Machi the main character goes back in time to try and prevent the murder of a classmate. If you liked ReLife's idea of time altering to fix mistakes, then ERASED's usage of the same idea should appeal to you. Both shows feature relatable protagonists and storylines that are well-written and not overly cliché or cheesy.
A MC in his late 20s is stuck at a dead end job, who lives his life daily and has no aim for his near future. However, due to unforeseeable circumstances, he is able to live his school life, which in turn not only helps ease his mind about the problems he was facing in his present life, but also helps him find a purpose in his life. And not to mention - making friends that are easily a decade younger than him!
Wasn't a massive fan of the pedo vibes in Erased. ReLIFe handled that aspect much better and more realistically.
Both of these anime presents a life cycle of a NEET with a twist of romance comedy and splice of life. The difference is NHK ni Youkoso has a tiny bit of psychological and mature theme while ReLIFE is a lighter side anime which has a school setting but overall, they both have a story plot that talks about real life work/adult situations. These animes could be a great help in helping/preventing a NEET/shutins.
Both stories are about an adult NEET that tries to change.
Though, the story is more heartwarming in ReLIFE than NHK ni Youkoso. NHK has more darker elements and feels to it.
Both are great anime for those who like realistic and relatable anime.
Both have a hikomori as main character who tries to rehabilitate himself with the help of the people around him. NHK is darker and it contains alot of dark humour while ReLIFE it's kind've on the lighter side with humour and situations that are easier to digest.
First of all. The main characters in both of these shows are recognised as NEETs in one way or the other and they are given a chance in their lives to fix everything up. While NHK is more of a drama and sticks to reality, you may find a lot of similarities in ReLIFE which has this little mystery element to it. Anyways, if you enjoyed ReLife you will enjoy NHK.
It's hard to get back into things after being discouraged for so long. "Welcome to the N.H.K!" and "ReLIFE" feature a NEET protagonist who has hit rock bottom. When all hope may have seemed lost, one day, they are granted an opportunity to redo their life. The situations that happen in these anime are very relatable in terms of work and adulthood. While "ReLIFE" is a bit more cheerful and drama filled in its high school setting, the tone of "Welcome to the N.H.K", however, is darker with mature themes. For those looking for realistic and relatable life situations, these are great to check out.
Both anime revolve about a NEET main character that being supported by a complete stranger. While ReLIFE main character were supported by the government, NHK ni Youkuso! thinks that all around him was conspiracy by the government to make him NEET forever. Both great anime with tears and MANY laughter.
-Both center around the life of a NEET and how the protagonist slowly starts to rejoin society and overcoming his traumatizing experiences
-Both have funny moments but also more meaningful moments
-They receive help from friendly people
The only thing is that NHK ni Youkoso! has a darker sense of humor
Welcome to the NHK is a masterpiece, in my humble opinion, as i watched Relife i couldnt help but thinking back to this show. The main protaganist in both shows has serious issues he needs to deal with. Both get an opportunity to redeem themselves. How the story unfolds to help these two is quite different however. Both have lots of good humor and some drama mixed in. though i believe Welcome to the NHK is more deep and original in its story, but it is also slower placed in parts.
Unlike most anime both of these show a more realistic (and possibly relate-able) setting
They are both about a shut in and also provide a similar feel. NHK ni Youkoso, also known as welcome to the nhk looks into the more darker side of life whereas Relife focuses more on the pro/cons of being a student.
Both main characters are NEETs, similarly both suffer from flaws which they
are trying to address. In Snafu, Hiki is able to indentify those flaws through the service club
by helping out other students. Similarly in Relife, Arata is able to address those flaws by helping out students in Aoba. You would be surprised how similar they are.
-Both are high school drama about a group of likeable characters
-Main characters have a unique outlook on life
-Though Yahari is definitely more realistic and has more brutal character interaction, they both give off a similar feel
These anime attracts same kind anime fans,the fans that love struggle of a protagonist making a place for himself.
To help others even though it doesn't effects him to consider himself a genius.
If u love anyone of them u sure love others.
- both protagonists with similar thoughts, always trying to help others in the most sincere way possible
- address issues of high school teenagers, jealousy, romance, misunderstandings and envy
- characters deep and distinct, comes charismatic and enough subjective
School setting. Both Male MCs are highly aware of the social situation in their schools and have an interestingly adult take on them. And both the Female MCs are highly skilled in their own ways but socially inept.
Both anime revolves around high school life,emphasizing on the relationship between characters.Enjoyable as a slice of life anime with the slow progressing plot and fun episodes.Both MC are struggling hard,to change himself and eventually change the people around him.
>Where ReLife is a story about how an adult enters the world of high-school relationships and solves fairly simple problems, Yahari Ore is about high-school students solving very deep relationship problems, including problems with themselves
>Protagonists both have antisocial tendencies.
>Similarities in main Heroines
>Yahari Ore, Zuko (Sequel) is absolutely incredible.
Top Wingmen/Bro-est of Bros by the male protagonists. In ReLife, it's Arata helping his fellow classmates out in their own romances and not their own; in Orange it's Suwa & Hagita helping out their own brofriend where it might sacrifice one of their futures.
A true bro, one that places his bro above himself and with self-sacrifice that it's admirable and actually heart-touching (since they're not doing their actions out of the interests that'll benefit themselves but those that they're looking after).
-Both main protagonists are given a chance to redo their teenage life (though different methods)
-Both revolve around a group of teenage characters
-Both are about making decisions and their impacts on life
Both involve an adult in his/her 20s that wants to make things right and change his/her life in highschool. The difference between them is how they approach their highschool selves. In Orange, the main charcater contacts herself 10 years in the past with a time traveling letter. In ReLIFE, the main character becomes a highschooler again instead of contacting himself through time travel. ReLIFE doesn't really have actual time travel.
Also they both have plenty of romance and drama, but Orange has way more of those while ReLIFE tends to focus more on comedy and not so much on the drama.
Both Series possessed the same story that the main characters have a sense of regret when they were teenagers and they got a second chance to improve their lives for the better as a teenager to have no regrets in the future
People in both animes are given a chance to fix something (personality change or avoiding tradegy).
Most of the time everything goes around group of friends.
Both MCs have difficult and sad backstories.
Everyday school life with romance in groups.
In both shows there are characters that have social struggles with their classmates. The relationship between main characters is also similar, as the male lead is more "happier" type of person and the female lead more "timid" type of person. In both shows the female leads both surprise you so if you have seen one, give other a try :)
Shows that explore social connections and challenges in adolescent life.
Oodles of romance in both, as well as more realistic character interactions.
Both spectacular in regards to animation styles and character development.
Similar awkward, shy girl characters that are pivotal to plot development.
Wonderfully simple yet engaging.
Both anime is extremely similar. The main female character is kind of having trouble making any friends at first and later on able to make some friends through the help of the main male character. The art also kinda similar when come to the "chibi' moment.
Basically Kimi Ni Todoke is ReLIFE sans Sci-Fi (Appearance/Age altering).
Kimi Ni Todoke has More romance and friendship. Yet ReLIFE got more motivational matters.
Kimi Ni Todoke is centered around the girl (Sawako) which is basically much like Hishiro.
If you like this kind of girl (kuudere like or whatever), I highly recommend this series (Kimi Ni Todoke)
All of them is both cute, refreshing, relaxing, and yet still pack a message. Have fun!
The romance is similar as well as comedy. The girl has a creepy smile and she is isolated to the class then later the whole class starts to be friendly to her. Entertaining and fun to watch. The guy helps the isolated girl to be friendly to her classmates as well as other people.
Very similar classical romance anime (with a modern and cute MMO twist!) about working adults that aren't entirely content with their lives. Like with Net-juu, these adults take on different faces of a new life, in this case a program that turns them into highschoolers again, and stumble into romance along the way through a lot of coincidence. They then have to figure out how to make a relationship work despite all these hurdles and help each other grow as individuals.
Both are rather stereotypical and clichéd setups, but are pretty well executed and always left me smiling at the end of every episode.
Both these two anime series revolve around an adult who decided to quit their respective jobs and become a 'NEET'.
An event occurs that causes them to change how they interact with other people.
They both contain the genre Romance, hinting at the fact that they meet someone special due to that particular event.
The mc in both shows are having a problem with their job
Both shows are about recovery of the mc in new society (online game in Net-juu no Susume and school in ReLIFE) where they get some very nice friends
Both series are a "deconstruction" (that is a very overused term.) of teenage social relationships. ReLIFE explores them from the point of view of a grown up dude who is shrinked into the body of a teenager and has to attend highschool, while Kokoro Connect makes its own entire cast go over and analyze their friendships because of some mysterious spell, bringing empathy and hostility between the group flourish.
Both are high school slice of life series involved romance and experiment elements.
Both of the characters are mentally grown up after overcoming the issue of jealousy, romance, misunderstandings and envy.
Both are romcom-esk about highschool students in a school setting. They revolve around somewhat sci-fi-ish plot devices, although in varying degrees. Relife has the medicine to set up the whole story, while kokoro connect has multiple of these incidents to encourage character interaction.
ReLIFE's characters are more obvious to read, and the character developments are all spelled out for you, while Kokoro Connect's are more subtle at times and may require some brains.
Kokoro Connect has more teenage melodrama than ReLIFE, but ReLIFE brings up more philosophical themes.
Overall, I recommend the manga for those who liked relife (start around chapter 109), and for those who liked Kokoro Connect, make sure to watch the Michi Random OVAs for the whole experience. read more
Both use highschool as a vehicle for an exploration of philosophy, with the main characters being monitored so that they will learn important lessons from the challenges they face. Both series have a very similar feel to them.
Both series shows a group of highschoolers during their time in high school. Protagonists experience weird things happening to their bodies and it changes their point of view and brings them closer together.
both main girl characters are very similar in terms of lacking in social skills but is very talented and lonely. Both are dead pan but also funny and lovable, delievering some very good dry humour. Both deals with themes of being talented viewed from the perspective of the genius and the untalented. Both has a good balance of romance, comedy and drama
They're really great and deep shows.
Both hits the viewer with the difficulty of being part of a society, which wait the right moment to eat you.
Sometimes we're not enough, other times we can make it.
Sakurasou and ReLife are like a train of emotions, positive and negative, that hits you in the face: they make you laugh, cry and think.
If you enjoyed Sakurasou, try Re:Life!
Central theme/focus of both anime is normal people going through normal life dealing with normal people problems. They are both extremely realistic in their depiction of high school students, to the point that it may frustrate some viewers. Frequently, characters will face set backs or problems, they won't know how to fix it, and will make it even worse for themselves. Often, problems will not be solved in one or two episodes, and some underlying tensions can linger or build up for over half a season. These issues are never dismissed, and always explored fully, meaning that not every solution will be successful, and no problem they face ever just goes away. These are real people problems, and the characters have to confront them completely and fix it for themselves.
Another theme both share is learning to live and deal with friends who are exceptionally talented and successful, while they themselves face the failures and inadequacies that regular people have. Characters from both series have to confront their own feelings of jealousy, inferiority, and worthlessness in order to grow as young adults and strengthen their bonds of friendship.
The main difference between the two shows is perspective. Sakurasou's main protagonist a normal teen surrounded by extraordinary people. It it shown directly from the perspective of someone who has to deal with his own shortcomings and inabilities, while living in a place full of geniuses. ReLife's main protagonist is physically 17, but mentally 27 years old. He is a character who has 10 more years of life experience than everyone else around him. ReLife's story revolves around the naivety and feelings of everyone around him. Thus it is told from the perspective of someone who is not only indirectly involved, but also detached emotionally. Thus, Relife's main character is able to navigate through these issues calmly and rationally, while serving as a guiding/senior figure to all his classmates.
As a result of the different perspectives, Sakurasou is probably more painful or hard to watch at times than ReLife. In Sakurasou, the emotional pain is dealt directly to the main character, and we watch directly as he implodes. In ReLife, this detachment allows the viewer to have a more sage perspective like the main character. Thus, the issues the other characters deal with feel less serious, more juvenile, and ultimately quite ridiculous.
And in reality, both anime are about teens in high school. When you are the student, high school means everything. Every decision is as important as your life. But after walking away from it for a while, one comes to the realization that most of the things that happened back then were pretty silly and completely irrelevant to real life. read more
- Both anime deal with teenage drama, relationships and friendship

both are about growing and growing up, making tuff decisions, hidden feelings and friendship
both give a similar feeling off
recommend both! they are equally awesome!
Similar in the fact that there are lots of tertiary romances and drama on top of the main story. Main difference is the setting, college vs highschool and Golden Time is more "in depth" with it's drama.
Plot and the pace feels similarly, both MC wants to change his ways plus both have they serious moment and comedy moments.
When I watched the PV of Relife I saw at same time it was going to has some similarly with Golden Time.
Both are about romance and the story between the Main Characters (MC). Characters have different personalities but are given certain situations. Such as both Male MC had something happen to them which made them find someone they eventually will love. Female characters seems to be very different. But it's a recommendation not finding two of the same animes, so I would try this out.
A life in high school as problem solver! The main character gets a second chance in/after their life. In his new life in high school, he makes friends fast. He's focused on solving his friends' problems.
- High school life;
- Lovable characters;
- Relationship between the MCs is well paced and develops beautifully;
- The male MC is more intelligent than people give him credit at first;
- Somewhat dramatic but with lots of good comedy in between.
Although, plot-wise they are very different. But, on the overall mood of both these anime are really similar.
- Both Funny and Romantic
- Both series is in a school settings
- Both Dense MCs
Both of these series protagonist are fairly similar
-Both grow and learn to enjoy life
-younger people help protagonist grow
Both easy watches
-Barakamon's mc is probably more far gone
-Relife contains some supernatural elements
But overall have similar feelings, great main and supporting cast and both make you feel good
These two series show a young man that gets to live a different way that he was used to, that discovers again an innocent and hopeful way of life. Kind of the same refreshing feeling watching both of these series.
Aside from taking place in a high school, both series are striking similar in the way they handle realism. Slice-of-life issues are addressed from episode to episode while romance serves as an underlying plot connecting all the events. The main leads are similar in the sense that they secretly yearn for someone to understand them even though they appear to reject intimacy at the surface level.
If you like one, I think you'll definitely appreciate the delicate romance of the other.
These anime attracts same kind anime fans,the fans that love struggle of a protagonist making a place for himself.
To help others even though it doesn't effects him to consider himself a genius.
If u love anyone of them u sure love others.
The main characters are both turned back into their younger selves from a drug. Detective Conan has 800+ episodes and focuses more on solving crimes. But just like in ReLIFE, adapting to a new life as a younger version of yourself is part of the plot.
The main female characters are socially awkward, have good grades at school, are directs, have the same hairstyle and are cute despite or because of their awkwardness.
The story takes place in a school setting with romance, friendship themes. Humour is sometimes similar and very good.
Behond the Main femal lead, the rest of the cast is pretty different though and there's no "sci-fi" aspect in tonari no kaibutsu-kun.
Both involves characters whom were having a shitty life, until they got some sort of second chance opportunity that has change their lives completely, but they both have some difference where one voluntarily becomes a live tester for a fountain of youth drug while the other is an old man who has obtain by accident an array of weapons and tech that would make him Cyborg's grandpa.
Both deal with adult characters who are at a crossroads in their life. Yoshino ends up helping out a small town and learns new things about herself, while Arata does the same only he goes back to high school.
Both animes have this low tone comedy and focus on struggles to deal with day to day problems of living in modern society.
ReLIFE is a bit more serious in places, but over all both of them carry positive tones and share heartwarming moments.
Throughout these series the main female protagonists go through a similar mental journey while encountering some romance along the way. The comedy that is woven between the story are also presented within a similar fashion, and is primarily used to enhance the notable quirks and personalities the cast has. In addition to the uniqueness of the cast, these anime both have an interesting setting/exposition, ultimately turning watching a regular romantic journey into one that keeps your attention grasped.
For anime watchers that enjoy a humorous romantic ride, either of these shows are the ones to watch!
Cool and sociable protagonist likes a shy girl with no social skills but intelligent and very charismatic secondary characters .
the two animes are slice of lifes of comedy and romance so ligth to watch.
- Love story with similar feel, specially about "forgetfulness" and "living the moment";
- Main female character super awkward that doesn't know how to behave properly in society, and gets help by the main male character in order to better deal with it.
Both shows have government agencies imposing their will on what they think best suits their citizen. In koi to uso, government arranges marries, in relife, the government allows one to relive their high school days. I would say that relife is more enjoying to watch than koi to uso.
Taking away the magical drug that turns an adult into teenager in ReLIFE the similarities in both of these shows are far in between. In ReLife and in Hatsukoi Limited we meet characters who are in high school in a coming of age setting they both deal with love and friendship in a somewhat slice of life type of way however the big difference is the humor ReLife is more easy going with cute moments while Hatsukoi Limited is a little bit more ecchi.
Although Yamato Nadeshiko Shichihenge is a reverse harem, ReLIFE also is also a romance comedy anime with the female protagonist being socially awkward, smart but beautiful with friends to help her change for the best. Both are well drawn and have good music and plot.
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou is like ReLIFE because it also is a splice of life, romance-comedy anime set in school. They have portions that gives introduction to characters in a first-person point of view, which makes them reflective and both also have characters which are academically good and competitive that it hinders their life. The characters work their way from school to adult life.
These shows take place in a school setting but are grossly different from the typical slice of life shows that are set in a school in terms of the theme of the story. The usual school-set shows are usually light hearted in nature and typically revolve around the romance or the mischiefs of the main cast but in these two shows present scenarios that break away from the usual – most notable would be the absence of a beach episode and the focus on the characterization of the cast instead of just showing their day-to-day shenanigans.
