Shouzou Saitou and his wife, Ine, have been married for nearly sixty years. Though they have not become wealthy or been able to go on a honeymoon in all that time, their love has remained steadfast. The couple spend their days peacefully tending to an orchard of apple trees and receiving visits from their loving family.

While tending to the apple tree they planted on their wedding day, which had snapped in half during a typhoon, the couple notices a golden apple hanging from one of the branches. They decide to eat the apple back at home, and the next morning, the couple awakens to find that they have become young again!

In their new but familiar bodies, Shouzou and Ine are able to live life as they never had before: they engage in more modern activities together, such as participating in a sports festival and playing video games. As they revisit the memories of their young love, the romance between them is rekindled, inspiring similar feelings in the younger members of their family.

Grandpa and Grandma Turn Young Again - How it feels great to turn young again, even if it's fiction.

In the Bible, it is stated in the Book of Genesis that there exists the Garden of Eden, which has the duality of the Trees serving different purposes: the Tree of Life, and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. God does not give the prohibition for the Tree of Life, and it's free to be consumed...so why not take this idea, and turn it into an original work? And that's what you get with mangaka Kagiri Araido's Twitter/Pixiv web manga series: Jiisan Baasan Wakagaeru a.k.a ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime revolves around two grandparents, Shouzou and Ine Saitou, as they turn young again. Before this show aired, I read the synopsis for this series and was immediately intrigued because the possibilities that you could do with a story like this is seemingly endless, and on top of that, the concept of giving grandparents the opportunity to do new things that they never could’ve done when they were younger is very wholesome by itself. When this show actually started airing, I was immediately sold on the cute and comedic dynamics that this show presents due to both Shouzou and Ine turning young again. On ...

One of the worst anime i watched.

Firstly, let start with some positivity, and talk about the one and only good aspect of this anime. That being the premise/concept.

A old couple, who has been married for over half a century, one day found their body reverted back to their youthful apperence. The 2 who faced troubles in the past, weren't able to truly enjoy their time as a young couple. But now, thanks to their current stable life and this supernatural event, could they make up for the past?
This premise intrigued me, creating a ideal setting for a unique romance anime, one that will focus ...
