A layered coming-of-age story from the author of I Want to Eat Your Pancreas and At Night, I Become a Monster. And don’t miss the original novel, also from Seven Seas! An unhappy girl who engages in self-harm, a woman ostracized by society, and an old woman looking to live out her twilight years in peace–what could three such different people have in common? That’s what grade schooler Koyanagi Nanoka is trying to find out. Assigned by her teacher to define what “happiness” means to her, Nanoka sets out to get to know these three strangers–and through them, perhaps, come to know herself too.

“I Had That Same Dream Again is a tribute to second chances...it's a well-written, well-adapted story about how being “special” or “different” doesn't mean that you have to set yourself apart from everyone else if you just learn to look with the heart.” --Rebecca Silverman, Anime News Network
“I Want to Eat Your Pancreas received many accolades for its film adaptation, the title belying how moving the content of the tale. I Had That Same Dream Again contains similarly thoughtful, moving content, though ultimately it is a happy, uplifting story.” --Morgana Santilli, The Beat
