Both are written by the same author. Both are Slice of Life, and have the same feel to them. They also share the same artstyle. Characters are all likeable, and you get easily immersed in both of them. Definitely give it a shot if you enjoyed Blue Hearts!

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  read more

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.

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.

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 manga revolves around MC's who are unemployed and don't have a clear aim in society -Tokyo revengers revolves more around the MC going to the past to save his childhood gf and relife revolves around the MC trying to change his life by becoming younger again -Both are about MC's returning to their younger selfs

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.

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 -are heartwarming -will leave you in tears -will change the way you think and live (somewhat) -are inspiring -are both my favorites And did I mention they're both my favorites?

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  read more

While the series is similar to full moon in its idol transformation and elements this series is also similar enough to ReLife that I'd be willing to bet Arina Tanemura is a fan. Noth series feature a pill that transforms a person back into a teenager. While Relife deals with the themes of reliving youth to overcome trauma and regrets in a school environment, Idol dream offers the mc a chance to go back to being a teenager and overcoming regrets as well, but she chooses to become an idol and live her teenage life to the fullest 
reportRecommended by KursedArcana
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 protagonists feel like they've been rejected by society/unwanted by society - relife is more romance than lookism while lookism is a lot more drama - both protagonists are (kind of) given a second change in life for example mc in relife gets to relive high school and mc in lookism gets to relive life as a 'good-looking,' person - both have to deal with the variables that come with not being in their real body 
reportRecommended by umjis
both have suspense till the very end . The ending may make you little emotional in both these manga as the mc's reunite. Please give both a read it will be worth it. 
reportRecommended by Adi2809
Both are coming-of-age stories, where the main characters encounter a sudden change in their life (age regression for ReLIFE, body-swapping for Shishunki), where they must learn to adapt to their new situations and improve themselves as a result of it.

display of youth in more or less sense combined with romance ao haru ride has much more drama than ReLIFE tho 
reportRecommended by K1ngOfSloth
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.

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.

It is a Love Comedy, with pure true love. If you liked ReLife style, you will love this manga also. Maybe the story and the continuity are a little bit confusing, but it is worth it. The story is easy to read, and the author doesn't mess a lot with the mix of chapters.

Both are about going back in time to their younger self but "Kouritsuchuu Madoushi, Daini no Jinsei de Madou wo Kiwameru" is more about a fantasy world.

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.

These series show adult main characters who have hit roadblocks cope with and overcome their current situations. Shared themes include learning to be a responsible adult and living a meaningful life.

Both stories have the main characters relive their high school life again, in order to change something about themself 
reportRecommended by UltimateAdrian20
Both of these stories have the main characters experience their College/High School days back in the past and make them understand how important that particular time period is. The stories have similar circumstances and it's mostly about motivating the protagonists to move forward in their lives. 
reportRecommended by FateXBlood
Both of these manga have a familiar vibe that contain any soap opera like suspense, drama, romance, and so many more. These two manga have a unique story that I recommend anyone who enjoy reading these kind of love stories. 
reportRecommended by AkatsukiUlquiora
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.

While Mushoku Tensei might be a series whose fantasy setting is probably the furthest you could imagine from ReLIFE's more realistic world, they both have the same core appeal. You are here to watch the protagonist overcome the demon's of their past, more specifically, their failures to properly integrate into society. If you like stories where the protagonist is given a second chance at trying to integrate themselves into society, attempts to better themselves as a person, and grow thanks to the support of those who do love them, then this story is a story for you.
