Nikaido Kaho has always been fawned on due to her wealth and status. That is, until the day she is moving into a new dorm when Kaho is saved by a boy from being hit by a truck. Struck by cupid’s arrow, Kaho asks for his name only to be told she’s weird. No one has ever said something mean to her! As it turns out, his name is Kanade and he lives in the same dorm. When Kaho confesses, Kanade agrees to be her boyfriend, but wait, he’s a 5th grader!

Kaizaki Arata doesn’t have a job nor has he been able to pass any job interview, and he’s 27! Life has been tough, but it all changes upon meeting Yoake Ryou. Ryou is from the ReLife Research Institute and is offering Arata a chance to be a high school student once more with the use of an experimental drug that will turn him 17 years old again.

ReLIFE is one of the most anticipated anime of the year and for good reason. It follows the question that many of us have asked ourselves: “What would you do if you could go back to high school?” ReLIFE is adapted from a web manga that is extremely popular for the comedy and plot, so there are many fans who are anticipating the anime adaption. The seiyuu cast is pretty great so how could you not be excited about it? To top it off, before the anime has even been released, there has been news of a stage play for ReLIFE in the works!

Takamiya Naho is sent a letter that says it is from ten years in the future from herself! Naho doesn’t have much time to digest the news as the letter continues on to recount what will happen later in the day including a new transfer student Naruse Kakeru, and they all came true! Future Naho has many regrets and wants nothing more to fix things through the letter. Future Naho especially wants to help Kakeru who has passed on in the future.

Orange is one of the most anticipated shoujo series of this season and for good reason. It is one of the few sci-fi shoujo series that actually seemed to grab fans with its manga, now with the anime adaption, we can expect great things! It is made by TMS Entertainment, known for anime like Itazura na Kiss and Jitsu wa Watashi wa. How will they transform this manga into an anime? Guess we’ll find out.
