Both series feature a main character that, through a miraculous event of self-justice, are put in a youthful setting in hopes to solve a major problem in their lives. While Erased focuses on the character progression of those around the main character, ReLIFE is primarily focused on the main character himself. Although both stories are presented as a mature personality in a younger body-- there are still clear differences in the tone, considering Erased is based on a middle school life, while ReLIFE is set in a final year of high school. Tension is much lower in ReLIFE, since it's not a   read more

If you liked ERASED you will probably have fun with ReLIFE. I see a similar premise, the idea of turning back time (less literal in ReLIFE), and themes in these two series. ReLIFE is a bit more lighthearted than ERASED, though I suppose both have a heartwarming side.

Though the plots are quite different, both protagonists are adults who are sent back in time to their youth. ReLIFE is humorous while Boku dake ga Inai Machi is more dark and mysterious.

- The Mc is the main similarity, they are both adults in their late 20's with the appearance of a much younger body. In boku dake ga inai machi because of the ability of "revival"/time travel and in Relife because of a drug being tested. Besides, Both were characters that had lost propose has they grew old, and were trapped in jobs they did not wish for. - Both Boku and ReLife manage to combine dramatic scenes with comedy. However, Boku dake ga inai machi has a more dramatic feel to it than ReLife, which is much more humorous. -Both Kayo and Chizuru, the main female   read more

-The MCs are adults who become young again. (BokuMachi is through time travel, while ReLife is through taking a pill) -Both MCs fall in love with a girl, while in their younger selves. -While BokuMachi is focused on preventing murder, ReLife is about interacting with people (his classmates) so that the MC can get a job. -The plots/genres are quite different: BokuMachi being more psychological, and ReLife being more comedic. So, if you like MCs becoming their younger selves again (while retaining the mind of an adult), give these animes a go.

ReLife and ERASED both deal with the main character reversing time to fix past mistakes. In ReLife, the main character is given the chance to experience high school again to try and help him better understand how to live his adult life, while in Boku dake ga Inai Machi the main character goes back in time to try and prevent the murder of a classmate. If you liked ReLife's idea of time altering to fix mistakes, then ERASED's usage of the same idea should appeal to you. Both shows feature relatable protagonists and storylines that are well-written and not overly cliché or cheesy.

A MC in his late 20s is stuck at a dead end job, who lives his life daily and has no aim for his near future. However, due to unforeseeable circumstances, he is able to live his school life, which in turn not only helps ease his mind about the problems he was facing in his present life, but also helps him find a purpose in his life. And not to mention - making friends that are easily a decade younger than him! Wasn't a massive fan of the pedo vibes in Erased. ReLIFe handled that aspect much better and more realistically.

Both MCs are adults which they changed into their younger self. Romance is present. Slight feels. Good Story.

The main characters were both an older adult working/going through unstable situations in their lives. Until an unexpected occurrence happened to them. One is sweeter than the other in many ways vice versa. You must check this out if you like the similar anime, one is just less brutal and more relaxing than the other, likewise vice versa.

Why not try it again? They have lived a life full of distraught and gloom. Who would pass up the opportunity to restart and cleanse the mistakes that impact their present time? Stories ReLife and Erased both understand the wants of humans who wish to go back to change what they have taken for granted. Taking the opportunity to go back to youth, protagonists of each story, Kaizaki and Satoru make the changes they seem will be fit for their future, whether it be the learning of young people actions or prevention of a mishap. The two also do this through their quiet classmates, Kayo and   read more

Both incorporate the idea of becoming your younger self in school as well as having romantic plot points in the story. Erased is more of a mystery thriller series, but both are fairly similar for the heart-warming romantic aspect of it.

Both are based on Time Travel concept but with a very unique way which is not explained "how". In Erased it is Revival and in ReLife it is Relife as it is. Both the MC are very helpful to his friends. Both the anime have very Emotional tone and in the end it connects very deeply with the viewer.

Both animes have an adult protagonist unhappy with his life, who gets a second chance to fix what unsatisfied him.

Do you want to go back in time to undo something that happened in the past? Well, you have come into the right animes. Both ReLIFE and Erased showcases this theme as our main characters can go back into the past to fix some of the mistakes that they have done. For Satoru (Erased), it is to prevent bad things to happen to his elementary school classmates and also to put an end of someone's hunting. Kaizaki, on the other hand, the beloved MC in ReLife is to find meaning into his mundane life.
