posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The staff for the anime adaptation of Yayoiso's ReLIFE manga revealed on Thursday that TMS Entertainment is animating the adaptation. Comico's official website for the manga also revealed on Thursday that the manga's fifth compiled volume will announce the voice cast for the protagonist Arata Kaizaki and the heroine Chizuru Hishiro when it ships on February 12.
Anime Japan will host a stage event with the cast on March 26. The stage event will reveal visuals and more information about the anime project.
The manga's story revolves around Arata Kaizaki, an unemployed, single 27-year-old who has just been cut off from his parents' financial support. Unable to find a job due to his leaving his previous employer within three months, he is stuck. One night after drinking with a high school friend, Arata meets Ryō Yoake, a man who offers Arata pills to turn him back into a 17-year old so he can redo his life. After agreeing to the experiment, Arata joins a high school class, and meets Chizuru Hishiro, a socially awkward silent beauty who yearns to have friends. Through connecting with her and other classmates, Arata must find what he lacks to live a happy life in the real world within a one-year time limit.
The manga is also inspiring a stage play this fall.
