This seinen manga (intended for readers of an older, male audience) is really a treat for anyone. It's the classic question "... if you went back in time, what would you do?" and for the main character, there's a lot of heartfelt issues to deal with. Being 40-something and going back to being 12 is quite the ordeal! The storytelling is so detailed it makes me feel nostalgic to a 1950s Japan I never even grew up in. This was adapted into a German movie, and the 2-volume series was a great read.
