But what happens when everyone Arata meets that year forget all about him once the experiment ends?

ReLIFE and Remake Our Life! start with the protagonists being utter failures as adults and given a second chance in life. ReLIFE does have a heavier sci-fi element that we talked about but it uses it to its advantage. While ReLIFE is set in high school instead of college, it does have similar struggles that both the protagonists go through. While Remake Our Life! focuses on the gaming and entertainment industry, ReLIFE takes a rather scientific approach, both of them focus on the “black companies” (an exploitative sweatshop-type employment system) of Japan. Moreover, ReLIFE has both comedy elements and romance elements in it but we won’t spoil too much! One thing you need to know is that ReLIFE is definitely at the top of our list of anime that are similar to Remake Our Life!
