It pains me to think that there might be people as inept as Tsukamoto out there. I know, I know. It's about his growth as player and as a human being. But god damn.

The pink spots on the MC's cheeks annoy the hell out of me for some reason... Other than that, I agree with a few posters above who pointed out how no reason or motivation for any of the actions was provided. It felt plain weird why Kazama invited some random guy who was a complete stranger to him to futsal, all because the anime didn't even bother to give any reason, just going through the motions.

bruh that was too cheesy and cliche , this feels like it's for kids.

The hero is so weak and his friend looks like a girl.

also it feels like yaoi which was very awkward to watch (when he blushed).

+1 for being about futsal and not regular soccer though.

Good first episode. For a sports anime Days got it down. I was a little unimpressed with Tsukushi, but I guess he won me over with his determination.. And I love the fact that sports anime always make fall in love with their MC- for 1. Their bubbly attitude 2.) Their determinations. I guess with Days it's almost no surprise that we'll have an underdog. But it's this type of anime that studios have been producing for many generations, that never fails to make you smile or laugh.. I mean sure MC's in shounen manga/animes are so easy to read nowadays that it's almost not hard to want to root for them... With Days, I think it's possible to enjoy, and I don't often watch sports anime or shounen animes- to be exact. Kanata was pretty cool as a character and looks like Tsukushi will join the soccer team?

There's a lot of sports anime this season and I didn't like the others so much but this one is decent and good for a yaoi ship for the fujoshis. Wonder how he's gonna take care of those blisters though gosh..

Wow!! If you look up the word 'determination' in the dictionary, I am more than sure that there's a picture of Tsukushi right next to it.

Can't wait for Kazama and Tsukushi to share their first kiss! I hope there's tongue involved.

I've been meaning to try out more sports anime and when I saw this was ongoing I decided to try it out. I'm really liking it so far!
(Mostly because of the Kazama x Tsukushi vibes I'm getting, but that's besides the point ;) )
Has a nice amount of comedy by making use of the underdog portrayal!

super cliche and rushed, some of the comedy fell flat and the drama was too forced + the mc was annoying and didn't have clear motivations. also gay. very gay. it wasn't completely terrible and unenjoyable though, so I'll give it a few more episodes.

For the first episode, everything seems to happen so fast?!

Also, I already dislike Tsukushi. lol I don't mind leads who start off badly at first (understandable) but IDK... something about him rubs me the wrong way from his looks to his personality. Seeing him struggle and how he's handling/reacting to it makes me cringe and want to look away. But as far as the story goes it seems to have promise, so I'm still looking forward to what happens next.

It's strange because I don't usually like sports anime all that much but I LOVED this episode.
I found something in life, is just that I'm still trying to figure out what is it.

There's a difference between gutsy and stupidity, being ambitious and being ignorant of oneself's limitation. They overplayed the idiotic part of Tsukushi and tried too hard to make him appear to be "hardworking" even though he seems to be that type. His reaction when the ace told him to leave gave me ptsd flashback of Onoda, have a feeling this will be a painful ride until Tsukushi finally got past the basics, and become somewhat of a badass.

I also find it unrelatable when he's being so obsessed with football AND Kazama when they've only known each other for 1+ days. His passion for football came out of nowhere and was not given focus after the futsal game.

Anyway, this is not a very positive first impression to me, aside from the animation which was amazing, everything else could use some work. I hope our boy Tsukushi will go through proper training procedure to get up to everyone's level, I hate when sports anime make people do some crazy training as if they don't risk injury.

Oh yeah I also have to wonder if the nail that came off did affect Tsukushi, it would hurt a lot if your toe nail came off, but they're treating it like it has healed since the futsal game.. which was held like a day ago.

One more thing, why is Tsukushi so damn feminine? Look at the way he rub his tears off his face, and look at how he run in the beginning of ep 2.. Damn.. and for his type of character, couldn't they have found a better voice actor for him? This voice will be grating my ears for the next few episodes, probably more..

Great start, typical newbie who has nothing that turns into the team's ace as we saw in the very first scene.

Also I'm totally biased because I love the hell out of football as a sport
I'm Bruneian and I like anime. And Manchester United. And fat cats.

Woah Tsukamoto is pretty impressive, getting hurt like that without any care for his own safety, the type of character who hasn't been blessed with talent but puts in hard work as replace

Man, I can relate to Tsukamoto in the fact I'm clumsy as hell, too bad I am not as persistent as he is
