RELIFE MANGA: A must read slice of life

Hey guys what is up welcome back to my blog I’m so thankful that you guys took the time out of your day to read my blog post. Hope you all are safe and healthy. It took me quiet a while to get to this point but this was amazing. I loved the anime and the manga is so much better. Mild SPOILERS AHEAD.

The story follows Kaizaki Arata, a NEET dropout from society who quit his job and is working part time to sustain himself, lying to his friends that he has a job and is driven into a corner in his life. He is approached by Ryo Yoake, a man who works for ReLIFE laboratories. After telling Kaizaki that he has been chosen for the experiment to reintegrate society dropouts like him back into society by having them go through high school again, the time where people go through the most change, the goal is to make them relive and understand the emotions that they have forgotten by getting into society. Kaizaki, though skeptical hears that he will be paid his living expenses as well as get a job at the end of the experiment agrees to it. He goes back to high school where he is surprised that Yoake is a student there as well. Planning to keep his head down and breeze through the year Kaizaki instead gets wrapped in friendships and making bonds leading us through his journey of ReLIFE.

The characters were so fun to see again. This time in much more detail than before. Earlier we could see only a few of their interactions in the anime simply because they had too much to animate and too little time but now, seeing even the small things such as the lunchtime scenes or just seeing Kaizaki reflecting as he drinks a can of beer, it’s all makes me feel much more commected to all the characters than I did before, of course one could also say that having seen the anime before, reading the manga just reawoke my love for these characters but I’m sure I was glad to understand them much better especially Kaizaki and seeing his thoughts and sympathetic nature.

The manga has it’s beautiful artwork and it’s absolutely wonderful to see. The comedy is peak as well, even reading the scenes that were in the anime once again, it still cracked me up. There is of course, way, way more comtent in the manga that is just interesting to see, everything from the heartwrenching drama to the cute and easygoing romance moments, everything is amazing to see. The anime did an amazing job adapting the manga but the manga is still leagues ahead.

The lesson is still the same at the very core. Even if some things seem meaningless, they inspire change in others and hence they have meaning, like Kaizaki’s presence. Seeing Kaizaki and of course, the other characters reflect on their actions and coming to this conclusion, it makes us understand how short life really is and how we need to be sure to make the most of it, that was what the RELIFE program was about.

The manga is completed at 222 chapters and I highly recommend fans of the anime who were put off by the last 4 episodes and new comers to the series to read it. With it’s amazing comedy, dramatic scenes and romance, RELIFE is definetly not a manga you should skip out on if you like the slice of life genre, because ReLIFE like I have previously said, is the perfect slice of life.

No rap section because I already made one in my post about the anime. The link is
