Description
After three unfulfilling years of high school, Imamura Kinichirou was finally graduating. Because of his delinquent-esque looks, he was feared by his classmates, has made no friends, and his greatest regret was not joining the ouendan (cheer club), which was now disbanded. After an accident on the day of his graduation, he and classmate Fujieda Aki are transported three years back in time, freshman again in body but with high-school memories intact. Can Imamura fix the mistakes of his past? Can he re-do his high school years in the way that he's always wanted? Again!! The universe suddenly shouts.

The cheerleading part doesn't take the centre stage at all, as in volume 4 the plot takes a drastic turn. It gets really exciting and intriguing. I look forward to vol 5 and hope the english scanlation catches up soon.

One of the more refreshing new manga out there. It's shounen but it's sensitive and really goes into the psyche of the characters. I love the main character here (Imamura). He's just so different from the rest of the other shounen main characters out there who you can lump and pile on one side because of the very similar characterizations. This guy is frank, spouts some ridiculous but very true stuff and well he's just very funny overall. Great manga to get into if you're looking for something new!

I like this series a lot. It is really a very interesting school life with an not so over the top supernatural element. It has some good emotions in it 10/10. Hope more people start enjoying this work.

Again!! has been an amazing and rereshing read, right from the beginning. I strongly recommend giving it a try, particularly if you're looking for something creative, a bit wacky and mixed with very strong character creation and a versatile, ever changing plot with time travel questions thrown in.

Particularly in recent chapters, Kubo-sensei has gone with a twisted plot approach that really embodies her style and has a very nice effect, in my opinion. Even in earlier volumes, it was hard to predict where she was going, some, like volume 3 getting a bit boring and others like volume 4 seeming to hit so many different ideas and not close all of them off. This style, however, makes for a fairly realistic storyline, if a sometimes difficult one to follow.

In other words, Again!! isnít a standard plot progression and even the characters donít follow a steady development pattern. The characters arenít even constant: for much of volume 1 and 2, Aki was as important a character as Imamura, in volume 4, Hiro was suddenly introduced and became important, then disappeared, in volume 7 the character relations all get jumbled up and, if you look at the cover of volume 8, you will see that another, brand-new character suddenly becomes an important face.

If you look at Kuboís other series though, they have a similar feeling Ė Kubo doesnít like conclusions, she writes her stories to start new issues, introduce more characters and ideas and sometimes she closes them off, sometimes she just moves on. You could argue itís terrible story telling technique, or, if you get too invested in a particular aspect of the story, you might think it's filler or milking the plot but it's probably just Kubo-sensei's quirk and enthusiasm to throw her characters off in different directions, which, if you can appreciate it, always keeps her series fresh and pretty realistic (since I find that real life rarely has neat conclusions either)

So the one word of warning would be that you can't go into this series expecting a neat conclusion after a linear plot progression. You're in this for new things and often dropping old arcs without any warning!

This manga seems like it has potential. I love plots where there is time traveling and that main character gets to have a second chance to change their fate.

Overall it has potential but there are not enough chapters to really comment on this yet and i wanted to be the first one to post a comment for this series.

at first i thought i'll be bored about this manga but when i read it (and of course i'm still reading it) i found out that i actually love how the manga is! the cheerleading, the time leap, the main protagonist's struggles to make his high school life better and the girl "who doesn't want to time leap". i love every chapter! T w T also the other characters, i hope to see more development from them...and if possible...to also see who they are from the future/alternate life they live just like the protagonist before he came back in time 3 years.

Wrong gender but when I first read this manga, I was just blown away by the number of interesting characters and art, and the spirit that everyone had. I felt like, wow, this is what a shounen manga should be, friendship, club, and excitement, it's all there, and for once I'm not sarcastic. It may not be the best of Shounen Magazine, best it is so unique. (and the gags are actually funny) I'd much prefer reading this to reading Fairy ****. Maybe because it's a manga about revisiting one's high school years and overcoming regrets that appeals to me, younger kids in the midst of high school just don't understand. I swear, it's a college student thing. The only thing that bothers me just a little is how much Usami-senpai looks like a boy sometimes, but I really like the characters because they feel like real people as opposed to mere characters in a manga. I can empathize with the main character, and if you can't do that, this series isn't going to be as fun for you because you'll just be waiting for more time leap and cliche stuff. You can just watch The Girl Who Leapt Through Time for that, sheez.

Just to clarify, this is not a story about cheerleaders or the protagonist becoming a male cheerleader.

The Cheer club is something more like a coordinated group that works along side the band and cheerleading team, but focuses more on rallying and directing the crowd in their cheers. For example, think of the cheering team comprised of diehard fans that follow the soccer club from game to game the manga series "Giant Killing".

The story is really interesting, and whille "Again" has been catagorized as shounen, it has the maturity and depth to also be classified as seinen in my opinion. The characters and their realism also really make this manga shine. The artwork is also quite good.

I look forward to more releases, and I hope this series continues on well past the 10 volume mark.

The MC is very human and very tangible (up to a point ofc) and I found myself identified with him. The mangaka depicts emotions very well and expresses how fickle and proud people can be. You get to root for the characters in such a way that it even inspires raging sometimes haha

This manga will make you feel that at the end of every chapter there's a hideous cliffhanger waiting (I count the pages before reading so I don't get my hopes up too much). I'm hopelessly waiting this gets an avalanche of releases of 4+ volumes in the span of 2 days like claymore once had. One manga I would definitely finish and reread. smile

update: Right now is, as the latest review stated, boring. But it could be just the arc (chap.~78). Still have high hopes for this series with 3 vols still unscanlated and all.
