July 2016?

And, HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT on the art adaptation. The MC doesn't look like Arata we all know AT ALL. Just look at his face. -_-

I'm glad to see that my boy Kensho got the lead role.

Looking forward to this.

Will give it a try. However If someone's motivation becomes a chocolate bar, I will drop it that second.

Hmmm, I'm not agreed with Kensho as the MC but it is already done; he's the choice.

Just binged the entire manga yesterday, so needless to say I'm pretty excited for this.

i was hoping that the art in the anime would stay true to its webmanga counterpart. i absolutely adore Yayoi Sou's clean art, but this works too i guess

+hype
Yea, I was hoping for that too...I mean, when I saw the anime character designs, it felt weird. I preferred Kaizaki and Reina's character design in the manga.

I have been reading the manga version of this (I'm at Chapter 85) and it's one of the best slice of life manga that I have ever read. It's got a hilarious cast and Chizuru's "smile" always cracks me up.

Also, watch out for that braid and glasses girl An Oyona...She's an interesting girl xD

TMS Entertainment, pls don't fuck this up...please...

Kensho Ono is busy doing both version of the same work. I heard he's also casted in stage version of ReLIFE (second time hearing him doing both anime and stage).

Literally never heard of it, see it's a webcomic series whose premise is some bland thing about a failure adult re-living his high school life, see that Aniplex is involved. Assuming another cash grab grassroots otaku escapist fantasy type thing, moving on as if nothing ever happened. Modern anime cycle in a nutshell, same shit different season.
funny enough it's nothing like that. it's more like a POV of depressed middle 20's old man looking for what he miss in his teen life to fix it afterwards.

TBH, i prefer them to delay it a little more becuase manga currently on peak. i don't mind withing for more years as long it make it become complite adaptation. rushed it is not that harmful because manga has snail pace. (it's already more than 1 year since anounced lOl).

This looks interesting :o. Will pick it up for Kenshou.

It's not like I needed more things to watch this summer though...
