Review: Here We Go Again

by Rakka   Tags: review manga


Author: Goeun

Imagine if your grandparents magically became 17 years old again…That they had a second chance to relive their youth and possibly fall in love again, or actually for the first time. It’s the beginning of a fresh start, literally!

Where to Read: On Tapas (103 chapters).

Here We Go Again

The Good:

  • Seeing seniors in the bodies of teenagers is quite funny, as is seeing a fully fleshed out family instead of just the usual anime absent parents.
  • Twists and turns mean that despite some tropiness, you are kept guessing where things are headed next.

The Bad:

  • All those twists and turns jerk you around quite a bit, especially at the ending, and yet things just get resolved deus ex machina.
  • While there’s an in-story justification, this is yet another romance series where nearly everything stems from the refusal of the two main leads to sit down and talk things out honestly.
  • The villainess isn’t competent enough to be admirable nor pitiful enough to be relatable.

Overall: 3/5. While somewhat cliché, it’s also a fairly funny take on the romance comedy/drama with a few less common twists.

Scale for reference:

  • 1/5: not really worth looking into; you won’t see many of these because I’ll just drop it without bothering to review it.
  • 2/5: probably not worth the time, but you may enjoy it regardless.
  • 3/5: an average to above-average series; may be a 4/5 to fans of certain genres or themes.
  • 4/5: a strong recommendation with some flaws or shortcomings.
  • 5/5: a universal recommendation; one of my favorites. Not necessarily flawless, but has something extremely compelling.
