    I don't know why but I'm in love with ReLife. I've watched it five times already and today, while looking for something new to watch, my hand gravitated towards it and before I knew it, I'm watching the first episode. Again.

    So, after watching the first two episodes, here I am to ask for recommendations to fill the void I know I'll feel after finishing it for the sixth time.

    • I'm looking for a "going back in time to your past self" story set in the modern world.
    • Preferably no action or fantasy elements
    • Protagonist shows a completely different outlook compared to those his age and does NOT regress mentally.

    Aki liked God of Cooking a lot and it is similar. Slice of life and a mature protagonist.

    Reading Bokutachi No Remake manga. Decent do-over story. Has a novel version too, tho I haven't read that.

    I would have said All You Need Is Kill.... but I don't think they fit your 3 conditions. I'll probably look for more later but this was the one that came to mind.

    Lovely! Something like this is exactly what I was looking for! Why is this not on any of the "similar to ReLife" blogs?

    Um.... Have you tried "erased" ??? It has zero fantasy or action.... It's set in a modern world...... As for different outlook than his peers??? Hm.... I'm not sure bout that.....

    Yep I've watched Erased. Liked it a lot too. Fits most of my criteria too. His powers don't really matter because they aren't that useful once he goes back.
