Dismissed as a hopeless loser by those around him, 27-year-old Arata Kaizaki bounces around from one job to another after quitting his first company. His unremarkable existence takes a sharp turn when he meets Ryou Yoake, a member of the ReLife Research Institute, who offers Arata the opportunity to change his life for the better with the help of a mysterious pill. Taking it without a second thought, Arata awakens the next day to find that his appearance has reverted to that of a 17-year-old. Arata soon learns that he is now the subject of a unique experiment and must attend high school as a transfer student for one year. Though he initially believes it will be a cinch due to his superior life experience, Arata is proven horribly wrong on his first day: he flunks all his tests, is completely out of shape, and can't keep up with the new school policies that have cropped up in the last 10 years. Furthermore, Ryou has been assigned to observe him, bringing Arata endless annoyance. ReLIFE follows Arata's struggle to adjust to his hectic new lifestyle and avoid repeating his past mistakes, all while slowly discovering more about his fellow classmates.

If you ever feel the need to revisit your high school days, this one’s for you.


A incredibly slow to start drama with a premise that hides its cleverness. It’s much better than the synopsis makes it sound.


I could joke about how great the smug faces are, but honestly if you’re at all into romcoms or slice of life this one’s a must-see.


Surprisingly a really good slice of life show. A very good take on a coming of age story that is refreshing.


There’s still some hope for you NEETs out there. Follow this man’s example and infiltrate your local high school. DO IT NOW!


A different type of high school slice of life. An adult is forced to go back to high school. Fun watch


That ending had me SHOOK. I really liked it though, I would watch a season 2 *cough* *cough*



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
