Silver Plan to Redo From JK is a manga authored by Lim Dall-young and illustrated by Lee Hye Sung, which began serialization in Comic Valkyrie in October 2019.
It tells the story of Sayuri Ninomiya, a woman who used to have incredible wealth and loved to flaunt it. Then Japan's economic bubble collapsed and Sayuri's family lost all of their wealth, with Sayuri herself becoming homeless.
One night, Sayuri is attacked by delinquents and, unexpectedly, finds herself in a much younger body at the high school she once studied at.
After some initial confusion, Sayuri realizes that she has reincarnated into her own younger self. She's now back in the era of the bubble economy, still lives together with her family and has incredible wealth.
But Sayuri knows that this situation won't last. She therefore resolves to improve herself and save her family from their tragic future, and comes up with a Silver Plan.
Silver Plan to Redo From JK provides examples of:
- Affluent Ascetic: Sayuri does everything she can to save money, including making her own meals, being willing to eat slightly expired food, and taking the train to school rather than being driven by a chauffeur. She also forces her family to do the same.
- The Alcoholic: Maki's father has a drinking problem due to his debts, his sick wife (who needs expensive treatment) and his gambling problem.
- Attempted Rape: Hayana and her friends are almost the victim of this when they go out clubbing, but are fortunately rescued in time.
- Book Dumb: Sayuri never paid attention to her studies the first time, and even when she has a second chance and is trying to learn, she struggles. It takes the help of the best student in her grade for her to improve enough to actually pass exams.
- Disgusting Vegetarian Food: Subverting this trope is Sayuri's plan to allow Maki's bento shop to earn more money while not having any ingredients other than rice or vegetables. She comes up with a vegetarian bento that nevertheless tastes delicious, and promotes it as a health food.
- Everyone Has Standards: Okamura. He may be a loan shark, but even he is disgusted with Maki's father gambling away the money Maki worked so hard to get.
- Loan Shark: Maki and her father are pursued by some loan sharks due to the father's debts. These loan sharks are somewhat nicer than most, especially their leader Okamura: when the family doesn't have enough money to pay them back on one occasion, he takes what they have and simply warns them to have enough money the next time.
- Misery Builds Character: Sayuri's transformation into a nice girl only happened because the harshness of being homeless as an adult ended up humbling her.
- Mundane Luxury: Sayuri enjoys even the most normal of things thanks to knowing what it's like to be homeless. When she reincarnates, one of the first things she does is buy takoyaki and wolf it down, crying from being able to eat food that wasn't scavenged from a bin.
- One Dialogue, Two Conversations: This happens regularly because while Sayuri is now acting nicely, other people still see her as a bitch so they often interpret her actions in the worst possible light. For example, Sayuri asking another girl if they're in the same class (they are) is interpreted as her saying she can't be bothered to remember the other girl.
- Parting-Words Regret: The last words that Sayuri said to her father before he committed suicide was how he was a failure and it was his fault they ended up poor. She's been regretting those words ever since.
- Rich Bitch: Sayuri in the past treated most other people like trash and coasted by on her family's money. This left her completely unprepared for when the money was gone.
- Riches to Rags: Sayuri's family lost their wealth due to the collapse of Japan's economic bubble, which revealed a political scandal of Sayuri's grandfather and in turn ruined the business of Sayuri's father (who committed suicide). Sayuri herself became homeless, even having to scavenge rubbish to find food.
- Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: Sayuri (prior to reincarnating) and her family are this, which leaves them unprepared for when they're no longer rich.
- Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: While Sayuri is making a genuine attempt to be a better person, because she spent so long as a rich bitch, there are those who don't buy it and think she is still a jerk or manipulating them.
