ReLife Season 2 Release Date

ReLife Season 2

From the last episode of first season, anime lovers are desperately waiting for the ReLife season 2.

ReLife season 1 debuted on July 2, 2016, with the final season airing on September 24, 2016.

This anime was previously adapted into a live-action film of the same name, which was released on April 15, 2017. The movie was directed by Takeshi Furusawa, so it’s no surprise that ReLIFE is popular in Japan.

Then, after four years since the debut of the first season, a special episode set called ReLiFE: Kanketsu-hen (final arc) was published on March 21, 2018. From the name of the ReLife sequel title it states that these 4 special episodes are a continuation of the Relife anime, or ReLife season 2.

Although these four episodes have covered the story line in the manga, there are a lot of pros and cons, because the production seems rushed, and the story is very compressed, making the last scene in the anime quite different from the manga version, and also many cut scene that does not appear in the anime.

However, overall the story is very good, and very well finished till the end.

ReLife Plot

ReLife Season 2

The story revolves around Arata Kaizaki, a 27-year-old student. Despite having a career after graduation, he resigned just after the months of joining. Arata’s manager was murdered by his coworkers, which prompted him to quit. Arata is unemployed and relies on his parents for income. After his parents cease paying for his basic needs. Arata works a part-time job at a supermarket in order to fulfill his needs.

Arata meets Ryou Take, a fellow employee, who works at ReLife laboratories and requests that he become an experimental subject for ReLife research. Arata is offered a wonderful profession as an experiment subject in return for conducting his ReLife experiment.

Then, Arata is given a pill in the scenario. He takes the pill the next morning, and he finds himself in bed with an altered age of 17 years. By that time, Arata understands that he has to spend one year as a high school student among other teenagers.

Arata’s difficulties begin with the fact that Ryou is also a participant in his mission. Ryou’s duty is to keep a daily journal of Arata. In the story, he chronicled the changes that Arata had brought to high school students’ lives.
