Both of these manga are about a character with knowledge of the future attempting to prevent another person from dying.

They both hold a strong message of being thoughtful of those around you since you never know who will be gone in the future. Both plots also involve changing the past to make the future different.

Ore ga Doutei o Sutetara Shinu Ken ni Tsuite

Ichijo Kazuya thought that he was murdered, but when he came to, he was back in his high school days. He lived his entire life as a playboy and had had countless sexual encounters with women until that fateful day that he was killed.

Taken back 15 years into his past, it seems that he has been given a second chance at life and given a chance to make different choices. He decides that the way to prevent his eventual demise is to make sure Masaki is more successful with girls and loses his virginity before Kazuya. But fate seems to be steering Kazuya towards the path of his previous life and keeps introducing the same girls he had sexual encounters with.

Dealing with time travel and going back in time to prevent a certain death.

Boku dake ga Inai Machi is more serious & takes itself deep with philosophy meanwhile Ore ga Doutei o Sutetara Shinu Ken ni Tsuite has comedy elements in it and romance as well.

Time-travel, going back in time to change the future.

Again!! is more comedical and contains slight romance, whereas Boku dake ga Inai Machi takes itself more seriously and has thrilling atmosphere.

Both mangas are about reminiscing and facing the mistakes of the characters' past, although Kasuga Laboratory is episodic.

In the present, murders are solved not by investigations, but by memories. Using the removed brain of a victim, the members of Forensic Investigation Office Section Nine examine the person's last thoughts to determine a suspect and motive in the case. Many oppose the violation of their loved ones' private and personal memories; but what they don't understand is that behind the scenes, even the investigators themselves are often conflicted with their deeds. Aoki Ikko is one such man who struggles to overcome his own mental doubts about his profession, while trying his best to take down those responsible for the crimes.
