Keidai Saeki is a high school student who remembers his past life living in Pompeii as the Italian warrior, Sirix. In his past, Keidai was married to the beautiful and kind Serena, and was best friends with a fellow warrior, Loleus. However, fast forward to the present and Serena has become the "boy" next door, Yuuma Ujoh, while Loleus has become his best "girl" friend, Mii Serizawa, neither of which have any memory of their past lives. Additionally, upon meeting Mii, Yuuma falls in love at first sight with her, further complicating things for Keidai, who is still struggling with loving Yuuma, his former wife, and loving Mii, his former male best friend.

Tokyopop's parting gift to the manga community was the release of the final volume of this most wonderful series, shortly before they ceased to exist. NG Life is not the usual shoujo mush, nor is it just another romantic comedy destined to be forgotten shortly after being read. It is a work that poses the sort of introspective questions essential to all-time classics being remembered as such.

- Can love survive the tests of time; can it even transcend death?
- Can one be forgiven for falling in love with another, after being separated from their beloved?

Make no mistake: NG Life should be read with the reader read more

I originally thought this would be a lame story judging by the summary, but I was entirely wrong.It's one of the funniest mangas I've ever read, with laugh-out-loud scenes and amusing characters.

The story is about an Italian warrior from 1,900 years ago, reincarnated as a japanese boy. Like him, several others from his pass are also reincarnated including his wife and best friend. However, he is the only one who remembers his past life. And to make matters worse, his beloved wife was reincarnated as a strong girly-boy while his best friend was reincarnated as a girl.
The hilarity begins as he tries to supress his read more

NG Life is an earlier work of Mizuho Kasanagi, the mangaka of the popular Akatsuki no Yona. My friend actually recommended this manga to me a long time ago, but I dropped it after a few chapters because I couldn't get it. Recently, I saw it on a recommendation list with good reviews, so I decided to give it another go.

The plot for this manga is really strange, but just follow through with me here. Keidai Saeki is just an ordinary high-schooler... but not really. Apparently, he was a gladiator in his past life several thousand years ago in Pompeii. All of his friends and read more

At first this manga seemed pretty uninteresting. I mean, it has to do with history, and when is that interesting? Well, if you ever have a pop quiz on Pompeii, you just might land a C-

But I really did end up enjoy this manga, and a few of my other friends did as well. The story is fairly original, but it is a bit lacking. It somewhat repeats itself on occasion, but the humor and art does make up for it. There's times where the manga gets really serious, and you might get a bit teary, while others, you'll be trying your best not to read more
