When the responsibilities of being an adult and the ugly side of corporate bullying betrays one's childhood dreams, many would wish to return to their innocent childhood to relive their life and make the right decisions. Dumbfounded by the offer presented to him, 27-year-old Arata Kaizaki hopes to turn his life around through a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Returning home from his part-time job, Arata is persuaded by Ryou Yoake, an employee of ReLife Research Institute, into participating in an experiment which will help him overcome his difficulties and re-enter corporate life. As part of the ReLife experiment, Arata's physique is reverted to that of a 17-year-old, and all he must do is relive his high school life for one year. Waiting for him at the end of the experiment is a job offer that he has been struggling to get ever since he left his first company.

With few other options, he decides to go along with this plan. However, with adult-like tendencies and many years since his last formal education, Arata steps into an unexpectedly challenging territory—a normal day of high school.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

I highly recommend this manga, it has love, friendship and it touch many feelings inside us.
It makes you think twice about your life, where are you, what are you going to do with your future and sometimes wish have the opportunity to be in ReLIFE program.

Search up MAL, and you'll find an abundance of romance manga, but I guarantee you, you won't find anything like ReLIFE. It's just the best. The way it handles the aspect of growing up, school life and most importantly depression, ReLIFE is nothing short of a masterpiece. The way ReLIFE tackled real life problems, I have to say, I am trying to change my life after reading this, such a great impact it had on me.


Story: ReLIFE deals with the protagonist Kaizaki, a depressed working man. One day he meets a guy called Yoake, who hands him a strange looking pill that ...

This is my first review, and I think is gonna be short, but anyway...
After the final chapter of the manga, I can say that is one of the few mangas that have catched me until the end. It has a good story, drugs, love, "comedy", and for me, it is an unique experience.
Btw if you have finished the anime and then you want to read the manga, I recommend you to start over, it has details that aren't in the anime (and after the anime its when the good story starts).
Also, this is the only online manga which I've seen that is in full color, ...
