Plot Summary


The story follows Kaizaki Arata, a 27-year-old jobless man, who fails at every job interview he had after quitting his last company. His life changes after he met Yoake Ryou of the ReLife Research Institute, who offered him a drug that can change his appearance to 17-years-old and to become a subject in an experiment for one year. Thus, he begins his life as a high school student once more.

I always wanted to relive my high school days, and now Arata here is actually doing it.

Episode 1

Arata sure did make a fool of himself forgetting his pencil box and bringing a pack of cigs to school. Old habits sure do die hard seeing that Arata can't remember to act like a teen and not an adult. To relive his senior year of school is quite a nice offer for somebody struggling in life like he is seeing that he found a potential girlfriend in the teacher that's actually younger than him. That was a pretty solid way to begin this show as it was pretty funny to see Arata stumbling like that.

Eh it was alright, I liked most of the comedy and the fact that it captured the facial expressions of the comic pretty well. The premise has promise and they introduced all the main characters.

Oh and Kaiziaki is pretty much like a teenager guy with an adult mind.

I noticed CR is uploading the rest of the episodes today. Might binge watch this today and over the weekend. First episode was nice though imo.

Episode 1

A 28 year neet gets a second chance to redo his last year of high school and his first day goes horribly wrong. So seeing he saw another girl while talking to the teacher my guess he was turned down and that led to him becoming a neet. First episode down and more to go.

And for some reason, the next two episodes are also up. I wonder if that was a mistake or something seeing that there's no indication on the official website or the Tokyo MX schedule that there would be more coming. Anyway, I just watched episode 2.

Episode 2

Arata was trying hard not to stand out, and he failed miserably at that. First bringing cigarettes to school, flunking all of his exams with a eye-popping 4 on math, and lending too much money for lunch to the class rep. Turns out Hishiro is someone who is having a hard time making friends, and she has company when it comes to that. So he made a friend in Hishiro, but only for one year, and seeing that he can't buy cigarettes with his appearance that he's probably going to be quitting, which is a positive change. This show certainly has made a positive impression. Now for the next episode that for some reason is also coming today.

Episode 1

This was a good start and has an intriguing premise to pull you in!

Not sure if I am, but I might review this later if I like what it did. Looking forward to marathoning it!

Episode 3

And now, it's onto PE where Arata and Ryo are showing their "age" as these guys haven't been doing much physical activity lately. At least he's a decent runner, but he hurts himself in the process. Seeing Arata getting along with Hishiro has really thrown Kariu for a loop, and no she's not pretending to be serious. She really has made a friend there. This show continues to be very nice to watch.

So with that, I'll watch the remaining episodes at a later time. That certainly came as a surprise that the episodes are all coming out on premiere day, and I look forward to watching the rest.

Episode 2

Arata really getting along with the transfer girl and the guy that he sits next to and is able to make friends with Hishiro who I believe is test subject 1. This anime is really giving clues away like nothing.

From episode 2, I find it interesting at how Kaizaki is starting to get along with others already in particular Hishiro.

Funny stuff again. I'll be binge watching rest later today.
