The play will run at the Sunshine Theatre in Tokyo from September 8-19 (with rest days on September 11 and 15), and at the Umeda ArtsTheater Drama City in Osaka on September 24 and 25.
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.
Yayoiso began the manga on the Comico app in 2013, and it was green-lit for physical publication in 2014. The fifth compiled volume shipped in Japan on February 12. Crunchyroll is releasing the manga in English digitally.
