As the two ReLife experiments are about to reach their time limit, Arata Kanzaki and Chizuru Hoshino must wrap things up at school. Soon their memories will be partially erased and they will be introduced to their adult lives once again.
This OVA was great and i highly recomend it if you have seen Relife. i wasnt quite satisfide with the ending of the main anime series however this OVA added on perfectly! It gave an ending i was really hoping for and it was amazing! Most animes sadly don't go into depth after the main plot even though they should but this added just enough onto the story that i think they ended this perfectly! :D
Alright, this will be a little different review since the subject matter is an OVA (basically an added episode of the series if you're new to anime) of the series ReLIFE. So let's start with the most important part - the story! It's pretty decent for an OVA. What I liked is the studio didn't just pack one episode with as much plot points as possible to get rid of loose ends. Nope. What they did is a mini-series that give the viewer a satisfying ending to the story. On a less technical note: the story ends well. Its a little bittersweet a little funny and a little heartwarming. Basically, if you cant do another season of the series and you want to finish it as well as possible - this is how it should be done. Second: the animation. As in the original series, the animation is pretty good. I especially like the manga-like additions of characters perspective on the situation (where the situation is drawn in an overly simplistic way to hit the point of the scene better) in comedy sequences. Third: the sound. The sound is ok. There's not much more to add to it. Fourth: the characters. The characters, just like in the original series, is where the show shines. They're likable, relatable and you want to see them grow and change (and they do). More importantly, the story arc that the main protagonist goes through and the way he is feeling towards everyone eventually forgetting him is masterfully done. The side characters get a little time to shine too. We did get them introduced in the first season pretty well, the story has given us reasons to understand and/or like them and the OVA takes some time to show us what happens to them too. I also liked the way the story deals with characters forgetting the main protagonist without his adventures with them being kind of pointless. Verdict: Its a great ending to a great (albeit little short) series. Go watch it already!
Story is everything for me, and on this ReLife scores. An anime of subtle insight, overall a quiet metaphor for life with its existential pains. Should you take the effort to love if you aren't sure of an afterlife? This and other nagging little questions should surface in viewers' minds as they go through this series, OVAs included (crucially). And yes, it is genuinely romantic.
