The story follows Kaizaki Arata, a 27-year-old jobless man, who fails at every job interview he had after quitting his last company. His life changes after he met Yoake Ryou of the ReLife Research Institute, who offered him a drug that can change his appearance to 17-years-old and to become a subject in an experiment for one year. Thus, he begins his life as a high school student once more.

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

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

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

Now having reading 101 chapters so far, i love it even more than i began to read it.

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

Life didn’t worked out as Arata Kaizaki (27) imagined it would. Being single, unemployed and having no success with his job-hunt. While others have jobs and a relationship, he is having it rough until one night. He came across a mysterios man, whom he never met but that man knew everything about him. His name is Yoake Ryo an employee of Relife Laoratory. Arata being suspicious about all of this because he never met Yoake read more
