Volume 1


He has blonde hair, menacing eyes, and a threatening demeanor—but third-year high school student Kinichirou Imamura is not a delinquent. Feared and friendless, he is also the reason that both he and female classmate Akira "Aki" Fujieda have their faces planted on the cold, hard floor on the day of their graduation.

The pair later awaken from the painful experience in their bedrooms. However, instead of graduation, they find themselves at their entrance ceremony, three years in the past. With no apparent way to return to the present, Imamura resolves to relive the high school life he missed out on, starting by joining the cheering club. But turning over a new leaf in the face of the difficult and boisterous club president Yoshiko Usami is easier said than done.

Again!! was adapted into a 10-episode live-action TV drama series in 2014.

The series was published in English by Kodansha Comics USA from February 27, 2018 to December 17, 2019.

"Again!!" is a refreshing manga that ventures into the realm of second chances and personal growth. The story centers around Kinichiro Imamura, a high school student who, filled with regrets, gets a chance to relive his high school days and make things right.

The manga beautifully intertwines themes of friendship, determination, and self-discovery. Imamura's character development ...

Mixed Feelings
Most of the reviews I've read about this manga complain about the unsatisfactory conclusion of the story. While I agree with this sentiment, I feel as if the story veered off course much earlier.

Initially, "Again!!" presents a quite interesting premise, and up until approximately the halfway point, I would have readily rated this manga a 7/10. The clean and crisp artwork, coupled with the straightforwardness of Imamura's character, contributed to a positive reading experience. However, even in the early stages, certain aspects of the story began to detract from its appeal:

- The characters occasionally act in ways that deviate from their established personalities, rendering them ...

Again!! had a fairly strong start; I grew attached to the characters, the art style was amazing (stays consistently good throughout), and the storyline was different enough to pull me in. Things took a turn for the worse quick.

Once the initial arc ends, the bottom falls out from under this story. The plot becomes convoluted, far too many story beats are added, and the writing just crumbles entirely. The drama club arc was by far one of the worst I've read in manga history, and there are now added elements of time travel/alternate timelines. Remember when the story was about reviving an ouendan group? Me ...
