I’m fairly sure that a lot of people who are unhappy with their current situation sometimes wish they could go back and do it all over. Sometimes you don’t even have to be unhappy – something may just be missing from your life and you want to go back and find it.
Not likely to happen, however, but you may as well give your imagination a destination to aim for. Manga website, Comico, has opened a page with a video teasing the anime adaptation of ReLIFE, a manga by Sou Yayoi.
The story follows Kaizaki Arata, a 27 year old who is unable to find work, and who has just been cut off from his parents’ financial support. One night after drinking with a friend, he meets a man who offers him pills that will turn him back into a 17 year old, and give him a chance to redo his life. He enters a high school class and meets Chizuru, a socially awkward but beautiful girl who yearns for friends. Through connecting with her, and with the rest of his classmates, Arata needs to discover what it is that he needs to live a happy life. He has a one year time-limit, though.
The manga started publication on Comico, and currently rests at 72 chapters – the anime project is scheduled for release in 2016. So there’s still a ways to go.
