Again can be used to refer activities taking place repeatedly. For example:

he's again and again trying to kiss me.

Once again is used for something that is happening one more time.

once again, he tried to kiss me.

    I'm glad that you want to participate, but we prefer longer answers that support their claims with sources. It's also preferable to format your answer so that people can read it easily. The help center has a lot of good advice for doing this.
