Nijiiro Days follows the daily lives of four high school boys: the hopeless romantic Natsuki Hashiba, the sadist Keiichi Katakura, the playboy Tomoya Matsunaga, and the smart otaku Tsuyoshi Naoe. Even while constantly struggling in their studies, they spend their days goofing around and having romantic misadventures.

On Christmas Eve, however, Natsuki is dumped by his girlfriend. While crying alone, he receives a pack of tissues from a girl wearing a Santa Claus costume, and, in return, gives her the scarf originally meant for his ex-girlfriend. As the holidays end and Natsuki returns to school, he finds out that the girl is named Anna Kobayakawa—who luckily goes to the same school as him! Having fallen in love with Anna, Natsuki aims to get closer to her, despite his friends interfering with his plans.

I read the whole manga today (slow day at work, hah) and overall, it was a good read.

But, it didn't live up to my expectations.

One of its strongest points is that it fleshes out our main 4 dudes, where in many other romance anime/manga the relationship of the mains take over and the characters remain undeveloped, and we even got 4 love interests for each of them!

But.... Just because we got potential love interests doesn't make the manga immediately good. Seems like they went very hard on the main 4 dudes stories and development, the romance was actually forgotten behind.

Throughout the manga it makes you ...

I don't write many reviews, but Nijiiro Days definitely deserved it, so here goes:

Nijiiro Days is a lighthearted story about the everyday lives, (and romances), of 4 friends. Its premise makes it seem like your typical romance slice of life series, but there are many contributors which make Nijiiro Days stand out far above the rest.

Story: 10
The story of Nijiiro Days is quite simple, its about a boy who falls in love with a girl, and with the help of his friends, tries to get closer to her. Pretty straightforward. But the way the author elevates this basic premise, is what truly gets you invested. ...

Nijiiro Daya is highly recommended to read but I'll just just keep my review short and simple.

Most would think at first glance that this might be BL because of these four handsome guys on the cover but no it isn't. In fact, nijiiro days is a typical slice of life story about boys in high school and of course their funny love experiences and dilemmas in school.

The plot is pretty generic like any slice of life and shoujo manga you read. However, you'll be fascinated by the characters in the manga which is the best thing here. You'll gonna love their personalities and interactions so ...
