Dismissed as a hopeless loser by those around him, 27-year-old Arata Kaizaki bounces around from one job to another after quitting his first company. His unremarkable existence takes a sharp turn when he meets Ryou Yoake, a member of the ReLife Research Institute, who offers Arata the opportunity to change his life for the better with the help of a mysterious pill. Taking it without a second thought, Arata awakens the next day to find that his appearance has reverted to that of a 17-year-old.

Arata soon learns that he is now the subject of a unique experiment and must attend high school as a transfer student for one year. Though he initially believes it will be a cinch due to his superior life experience, Arata is proven horribly wrong on his first day: he flunks all his tests, is completely out of shape, and can't keep up with the new school policies that have cropped up in the last 10 years. Furthermore, Ryou has been assigned to observe him, bringing Arata endless annoyance. ReLIFE follows Arata's struggle to adjust to his hectic new lifestyle and avoid repeating his past mistakes, all while slowly discovering more about his fellow classmates.

ReLIFE is a good romcom, it's a wholesome story with a lovable cast of characters.

It checks every box for an enjoyable watching experience : the animation is good, you can easily relate to the characters, there's the usual amount of cute moments between characters. There's also some drama to pique the viewers' interest, nothing that will make you feel uneased, simply plausible problems teenagers can face.

The soundtrack is awesome, there's a different ending song for every episode ( if they'll either be to your taste or not is quite subjective, but we can appreciate the trouble of picking different songs ) and the ...

Mixed Feelings
To be honest, I wish this anime had more recognition. At first, I was not very interested but I started watching and it turns out Relife is actually cool!

The principal theme it's creative but not so interesting, that can be saved with the characters that are fantastic and handsome/beautiful. I enjoyed the moments in every episode, I think that's the most importante thing in an anime: the entertainment, it's the key for everything. Personally, some moments of shock, sadnesse, confusion and also happinesse made me to watch until the end! And that's great.

Honestly, I was expecting a more "wow" ending, but it didn't disappoint ...

(TLDR Review at the bottom, as always, thanks for reading)

We are humans. We make mistakes. In making those mistakes, we wish such never occurred in the first place. We want to redo the past and shape it into a desirable one. We want to take on what we once missed out on.

I am no old person, at the time of writing this, I happen to be a little further down the line of life as opposed to ReLIFE's setting, however. When watching the anime, it becomes apparent that the message isn't just for older working people, it is also a message to the youth to ...

Live Action "ReLIFE" Film Adaptation Receives 90 Second Trailer

A lot of crying, girls in sailor outfits, and standard Japanese high school shenanigans make for a fairly innocuous full length trailer.
