Genre: Josei, Romance, Supernatural
We first met Kisaragi Sumi who’s a 60 grandma who has dedicated her life in taking care of her parents. She never once got to enjoy her youth, upon her mother passing away she realised she has no one left and nothing to look forward to in life. Single, old and alone. After returning home and trying to find a younger photo of her mother she comes across an old folding screen with a black cat. She gets a splinter in her finger and accidentally drops some blood onto the folding screen. Turns out the cat is a spirit in the folding screen, who goes by the name of Rei, he will grand a wish of a virgin’s blood.
Rei grants Sumi her wishes to relive her youth and fall in love by kissing her and transferring some of his life to her. Sumi transforms back to her 17 year old self (what a beauty she is) gets back to school and experience high school life again, being a 60 year old women at heart, she finds its socially awkward and has a hard time adjusting. She starts to develop feeling for the same young man saved her on the bus when she was in her 60 year old self, Mashiro. But from my women senses I can see Sumi and Rei falling in love lol.
I quite like the concept this manga has taken, sort of reminds of the Japanese Drama but I have forgotten the name argh. Anyways if you interested you can read the manga here.
