"Test Subject 001 → 002" is the seventh episode of ReLIFE.
SynopsisRyo reflects upon his failure supporting Test Subject 001 the previous year.
As Ryo is writing his report on Arata's progress, he remembers when he was supporting subject 001 of the ReLIFE project. Ryo was scolded by his supervisors for being too involved in the subject's life, and thus he distanced himself from that person. At that time he was also asked to scout out Arata to potentially be subject 002 in the ReLIFE project. After a year had passed, the results for subject 001 were deemed a failure as the person in question had not changed at all. Discouraged by his failure to support subject 001, Ryo is encouraged by An not to give up as Arata was selected to be subject 002, and that Ryo had been assigned as his supporter. Ryo concludes his report by logging that despite Arata's struggles he is making progress.
