Imamura Kinichiro reluctantly wakes up one day to attend his high school graduation. He'd made no friends in high school and joined no clubs. Everyone was afraid of him, due to his long blond hair and surly attitude. Reflecting on his awful high school years, he remembers a girl from the Japanese cheering squad that he saw in the welcome ceremony three years ago. Searching for the old cheering squad's clubroom, he accidentally startles a classmate, causing them both to fall down a flight of stairs...

When he wakes up, it's the morning of his first day of high school, three years ago. As he confusedly goes through his day, he's able to correct a lot of the mistakes he made the first time around, such as actually interacting with the cheering squad girl, Usami Yoshiko! But did he really travel in time, or is this all just a dream he's having while his body is lying unconscious somewhere? Could he really have the chance to go through his high school years again?

I have never had the need to write a review of a manga before, but this one has so much wasted potential to become the greatest work of its kind, and since nobody else has given it a lower score I couldn't help but to do it for this one.

We all know the premise of going back to the past to live a better life, right? This manga had a great motive to it, that is helping a girl in the cheering club. It gives room to character development, not only in Imamura's relationship with Usami, but also in a personal level, however that is read more

Make sure you read the reviews of people that have finished the manga. After waiting three years for the scans of the manga to be finished, i binged it in the past three days with full investment and to no avail did the ending do this manga justice at all. The characters were interesting, the story was even more interesting, but due to the manga being cut early from the publishing company, the ending was rushed and half a--ed. But because of this, many problems were left open and little to NO closure was given. It's like watching your favorite flavored cake be baked in read more

Have you ever thrown away a chance that may have changed the way your life had become? This is what happens to the high school social recluse, Imamura Kinichiro, and the manga, "Again!!", is the heartfelt tale of his second chance in life.

The basic premise is nothing short of relatable and heartfelt. It’s the day of graduation and Imamura reminisces how his high school life had been wasted. Upon going to the old cheering squad’s clubroom, a club he regrets his choice of never joining in, he scares Fujieda, Akira, a girl who led a relatively normal highschool life. Together, they fall down a flight read more

At the risk of reiterating a plot summary that's been said in many different ways many times, I'll avoid the long story synopsis and give a brief summary to help explain my thoughts a bit.

I think that the story is interesting not only because of the premise behind it (going back in time to change the things you regret) but because of what it could eventually lead to.

We start off on graduation day where our main character, after looking back on his high school years, despairs that he didn't accomplish anything and regrets not living his life to the fullest (joining clubs, making friends, read more
