It’s been a long while since Anime Fridays! But I’m back with an anime review for you today!
This Anime Friday is all about the anime DAYS! It’s a soccer* sports anime with 24 episodes in total (and a few OVAs of which only one I was able to track down and watch). It’s produced by Studio MAPPA and the manga on which it is based on is still on-going.
*soccer = football (for people who don’t call it soccer…which apparently is a good enough portion of the world) – fun fact of the day, I guess 🙂
Here’s a little something new for those too lazy to read – i.e. “The Run Down”:
Genre: Sports (soccer)
Ep: 24 + OVAs
Manga: Yes (on-going)
TL;DR: Watch it for the warm humor and well-paced tale of lovable high school soccer underdogs!
For those not lazy and want to get a full on review, as is tradition, here is the lovely synopsis:
The series is about two boys named Tsukushi and Jin. Tsukushi is a boy with no special talent or traits while Jin is considered a soccer genius. On one stormy night, Jin meets Tsukushi, and they get dragged into the world of soccer.(From MAL News)
To add onto it:
It’s a sports slice of life following the underdogs of Seiseki high school and their dream of representing Tokyo in the Nationals, all with on-point humor, cuteness and angst thrown in for flavor.
Now onto the details of why this is such a good anime!
