After reliving the life of a high school student through the ReLIFE experiment, 27-year-old Arata Kaizaki cannot believe how quickly it has changed him. He has begun to see the world through a different perspective that he had completely forgotten as an adult. He has made friends and formed deep relationships with each one of them. However his support, Ryou Yoake, reminds him that the experiment is all an illusion; after his experiment ends, he will be forgotten by all of them.

The experiment of another ReLIFE subject is also coming to an end. After spending two years with ReLIFE, Chizuru Hishiro has developed into a more open, more thoughtful person than she could have ever imagined. She has met people who have changed her life, her perspective, and ultimately her. However, now that their ReLIFE is coming to an end, will they be able to let go of the memories they have made?

Aside from a decent ending, Kariu’s arc in season 1 was a pain to get through, filled with anime cliches and contrived conflicts. I do think Oga is a good character tho, and Kariu isn’t bad after the arc ends.

Instead, the ...

Mixed Feelings
While I am still not in love with this series or the OVAs, this was marginally better than the regular series.

Animation was on par or better than the regular series while having much better and more focused stories and narrative.

But I think a lot of my issues I will always have with this series is still in these OVAs.

Still not a fan of the music and the VA work is fine but not spectacular to me.

Suppose if you liked the series ...

ReLIFE: A terrible adaptation of the anime dishonors the great ending of the manga

For a long time the manga of ReLIFE aroused many emotions; and when we found out that the anime would adapt the final arc, the joy increased enormously.

It is impressive how the director Tomo Kosaka and his crew destroyed the great work of Yayoiso. Actually, what TMS Entertainment has done has no name. By the way, from here spoilers come.

In the first place, it was logical that these Ovas ...
