If one day you were offered a pill that could make you a high school student again, would you consider taking it? Well, for the main character Kaizaki Arata it did not take too long to agree. Despite being a young 27-year old guy he is already jobless, with no money in his pocket and no girlfriend by his side. But fate gives him one more chance in a face of Yoake Ryou—representative of a ReLIFE project, who offers him a possibility to become 10 years younger and start his life once again.


ReLIFE has been simulpublished in English by Crunchyroll since December 21, 2015. It has also been published in Polish by Waneko since October 1, 2016.

The series was nominated for Best General Manga at the 39th Kodansha Manga Awards in 2015.

After reading 86 chapters, I believe it is time to write a review for ReLIFE. I gave 9 but subjectively I would without a second thought give this manga a 10. It is one of the most enjoyable I have ever read so far.

For those in high school or about to get there, it gives a preview of what happens after that. While the story is obviously culturally based in Japan, it does not change the fact that it is a very realistic approach on employment and social issues. Food for thoughts means good reading material value to me. It is very light hearted but read more

In the case of Kaizaki, he quits his job and is unable to find a better employer, let alone finding one becomes an impossible task, being branded as a quitter. ReLIFE is a tale of a man who is able to revert to his 17-year-old self thanks to a drug.

Kaizaki, struggling with life, encounters a young man named Yoake, who offered him a drug for read more

The premise of what would you do differently if you went back to high school is practically ingrained in every person's brain. Of course hindsight is 20/20 but this premise begins with a 27 year old taking a pill and becoming a senior in HS again. Don't read if you need the exact science behind it.
The characters and story are being developed well and constantly progressing.
Handles tension well by keeping unanswered questions while solving others.
The art is good and in color.

Details in the picture are sacrificed for color instead.
While the plot is constantly progressing it does so at a crawl. The chicken crossed read more

small summary- you can skip down this review for more practical information.
