Seriously Summer season looks dope, and TMS doing both ORANGE and ReLIFE anime in one season. TMS now become Based.

i was hoping that the art in the anime would stay true to its webmanga counterpart. i absolutely adore Yayoi Sou's clean art, but this works too i guess

I'm totally hyped, didn't think the anime would begin streaming that early!

So, how's the romance of this series and is there any hope of it being a complete adaption?

. . The webcomic is still ongoing with over 120+ chapters (18-22 pages in length). As for the romance well... A romantic payoff may or may not occur due to certain plot points.

he's got no job and he's 27
some smegma-smelling guy approaches him and offers him a pill
and then now he's in school, looking younger

I don't think this is a spoiler, since you're pretty much told at the beginning, but I will spoiler tag it just in case

Literally never heard of it, see it's a webcomic series whose premise is some bland thing about a failure adult re-living his high school life, see that Aniplex is involved. Assuming another cash grab grassroots otaku escapist fantasy type thing, moving on as if nothing ever happened. Modern anime cycle in a nutshell, same shit different season.

Been reading the series before. It's pretty funny in ways so I hope it can capture the comedy and storytelling aspect of it.

funny enough it's nothing like that. it's more like a POV of depressed middle 20's old man looking for what he miss in his teen life to fix it afterwards.

TBH, i prefer them to delay it a little more becuase manga currently on peak. i don't mind withing for more years as long it make it become complite adaptation. rushed it is not that harmful because manga has snail pace. (it's already more than 1 year since anounced lOl).

The whole "kid again" brings about unpleasant memories of Shitrased. Pls be better show pls be a better show.

Will give it a try. However If someone's motivation becomes a chocolate bar, I will drop it that second.

I have been reading the manga version of this (I'm at Chapter 85) and it's one of the best slice of life manga that I have ever read. It's got a hilarious cast and Chizuru's "smile" always cracks me up.

Also, watch out for that braid and glasses girl An Oyona...She's an interesting girl xD

TMS Entertainment, pls don't fuck this up...please...

Yea, I was hoping for that too...I mean, when I saw the anime character designs, it felt weird. I preferred Kaizaki and Reina's character design in the manga.

Hmmm, I'm not agreed with Kensho as the MC but it is already done; he's the choice.

July 2016?

And, HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT on the art adaptation. The MC doesn't look like Arata we all know AT ALL. Just look at his face. -_-
