Nijiiro Days is in a word: Fun

So far I have thoroughly enjoyed Nijiiro Days. The best thing about this slice of life anime is the characters. Usually in anime there is at least one character that I do not like or do not care for. However, this is NOT the case with Nijiiro Days. I adore everyone and can not pick a favorite. If you are looking for a deep, well-thought-out story then this anime is not for you, but if you are in the mood for a light-hearted show with quirky humor, and lovable characters then you gotta watch this!

Let's be honest,we all thought that this was yaoi at first glance,didn't we?
Four boys running on green open field,with cheerful music and rainbow name?I can't blame you.
But there is more to it.

"I'm pretty sure I have no luck with girls,and I`am not suited for romance." - Natsuki "Na-chan" Hashiba

Rainbow days is a funny anime if you give it a chance, characters are interesting and everything that I watch reminds me at Kimi to Boku which I loved. Just with a little bit more of romance.
Story is moving quite at slow pace, which for a show like this,is nothing wrong. Anime is not focusing too much read more

I've got a lot to say about Njiiro Days, but before I start, I shall premise that I've never took my time to read the manga so this is going to be an anime based review.
Rainbow Days belongs to the ‘slice of life’ genre, one of the most popular, spread (and maybe profiting) genre in the whole anime–market.
And that's not bad.
When the work is well done, it's never too bad.
But that's only when the work is WELL done.

Where to start from... let's see.
Not too much to say about the story. 'Till now, only 6 episodes have been released, too little to expect a character development, read more

if you like slice of life with bishounens, you'll like this.

An anime that is supriselly enjoyfull to watch (some reviews i read before made me really uneasy about this one, but i gave a try).

Story:

Common, as maaany others slice of lifes/schools animes. BUT, it's really funny and loving. The story try foccus on the (possibly) romantic relationships of the boys, and it gives me chills to think that it may end without them together...

Art and characters:

The animation itself isn't something amazing, but in my opinion, it down't matter a lot. The type of anime, the events of the story doesn't ask for any special/sofisticated read more
