Last Game is similar to ReLIFE not so much with the overall plot, but with the main couple, the protagonists.
*minor spoilers below*
Kujou Mikoto & Hishiro Chizuru are similar because they both are hard-working, smart, stoic, dense, can't quite smile when trying (but can genuinely smile in the moment), and are both rather socially inept. They also look pretty similar, since Kujou used to part her hair into two braids, and Hishiro parts hers into low pigtails (though with that & Hishiro's personality, she could be seen similar to Mizutani Shizuku from Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun).
Also, with Kujou & Hishiro, since they cannot smile and when they try to it looks pretty menacing, there are misunderstandings. Tachibana misunderstands Kujou's smiles and Kariu misunderstands Hishiro's smiles when the latter were trying to be friendly. Along with this trend, Kujou & Hishiro both greatly treasure friendship because they had never really had friends prior.
Yanagi Naoto & Arata Kaizaki are similar because they are both very kind and considerate towards others and their feelings, though Yanagi is smart and dense. Though with Kujou & Yanagi each being a "KY" (can't read the situation/atmosphere), Kaizaki can read the atmosphere and takes the surrounding peoples' feelings into account. read more
This has been said before but I couldn't help but feel this so very blatantly as I read it, so I agree: this is a character based recommendation: the protags are nearly the same with separate environments. A lot of it is about finding oneself through one's social group, namely the main female leads. The male leads, on the other hand, are catalysts and just as much must find themselves through their own means (and the subtle help of the female leads)
They're not much similar in terms of plot. However, the heroines, Mikoto and Hishiro, are totally much alike - dense, naive, excels both at sports and academics, and are usually seen with the poker face. Also, both titles feature the same level of comedy and the characters show similar personalities.
[bonus: ReLIFE is in full-color]
In both series, the main protagonist gets the chance to make changes about his past life. This takes them to high school where they meet former classmates and acquaintances. As the story progresses, we learn more about the past life of the main protagonist and the experiences they've shared with others. ReLIFE is more known for its experimental approach with much more comedy and subtle romance. Ore ga Doutei wo Sutetara Shinu Ken ni Tsuite also has romance but contains more mature context with some sensible concepts.
In both series, the main protagonist gets another opportunity to experiment his younger life again. Only this time, they can influence events of the past that greatly affects the future. Both series also has a good amount of relationship dynamics between the main characters. ReLife has much more humor while Boku dake ga Inai Machi presents more of a thriller-style of storytelling.
both mangas have differences between them, such as one emphasizes more on romance, the hardship of an adult and another one is purely a Slice of Life with a little sparkle of romance in it. But what makes them both similar, is the way both leave an impression on you. Both have a very subtle and delicate way of telling the story with its art and writing that will suck you slowly into the story and you'll feel like you are in the shoes of those characters. Both did a very good job of connecting the characters with its surroundings that you'll fell in love with each and every one of them So, if you are looking for a manga, not from an art perspective(one is webtoon, so you can't possibly compare them), not from a character perspective(since motive of the characters are different in both manga), but gives you similar feeling as either one then you can give other one a try read more
Both are written by the same author. Both are Slice of Life, and have the same feel to them. If you like their artstyle, then I would definitely give the other one a shot.
Characters are all likeable, and you get easily immersed in both of them.
Both series revolve around the main character and their friends' daily lives. With comedy and the youth of teenagers.
Bother series are also web series (RELIFE is a web series and Horimiya was based off one)
If you liked the art style for RELIFE, Horimiya definitely won't disappoint.
Hishiro and Komi have various similarities in attitude. They have similar struggles in social tendencies and are both trying to improve. Both are comedic manga.
Although Relife is web manga that is fully colored and has an almost supernatural element to kick off the story, Komi-san wa, comyushou desu.? is more of a straight forwards comedic manga. If you liked the awkward lead female character you will enjoy both of these.
Both shows are about growing up with romance as a subplot and heavy life drama. Tho in ReLIFE, the story is focusing more on the romantic relationship of the main characters for the 2nd half of the manga. Both also have a one-on-one romance (no triangle or other polygonal relationship). So they are a good read for people who like drama but don't like love triangle drama.
Both manga have a very unique romance setting tied in with youth. They also both give a third person point of view that adds to the reader's appreciation for the humorous parts, yet can still keep you guessing and anticipating what will happen next. The art style is also relatively similar, and share a more "cartoonish" character style during certain moments. Altogether I wish that I had found both of these much sooner than I did and strongly recommend them to any adolescent or teen reader.
How are they similar? They're both my favorites! Haha kidding aside, both stories:
-occur in a school setting
-have events that transpire over one school year
-have main characters perceived as failures
-have main characters' lives improve over the course of the story
-emphasize the values of friendship and sometimes, love and maturity
-teach good life lessons and values
-will leave you in tears
-will change the way you think and live (somewhat)
-are both my favorites
And did I mention they're both my favorites?
Two romances featuring a relatively mature main character who struggles with his past. Similar dynamic of the male lead trying to keep the female lead at a distance due to the (perceived in one case) age gap. Both blend light hearted moments with more depressing and impactful moments for a solid emotional rollercoaster.
Orange and ReLife shares a trend of relationship building but under some unorthodox circumstances. In particular, the male protagonist gets involved with characters that are influenced by past/present events. In fact, both series' past related to the main protagonists plays big roles in the present story. There is also an experimental feel for both series' progression as we see what the main characters' connections are built based on various events. Recommended for any fans who wants to read a refreshing tale of unusual themes.
Again!! and ReLife brings a story where a young man/student relives their life again as a student. Despite following different premises, there are some similarities with their experiential experiences. In addition, both series focuses on relationship building and characterization especially with characters the main protagonist meets at school. Both series has refreshing comedy that is humorous and dialogues that inspire development.
