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.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

What high school boys do and talk about in school is truly rainbow-colored. From holiday plans to relationship breakups, then escalating to sexual preferences; Nijiiro Days (Rainbow-Colored Days) delivers this naturally through the daily lives of four high school boys.

The true value of this manga, in my personal opinion, lies very deeply in the characters itself rather than on the story (I will explain later down). Unlike many other mangas out there, Nijiiro Days juggles romance and comedy equally from a glance, but I would say it is dependent on which character is the focus. If you're looking for something relaxing and casual, read more

Story: 9

The manga is labeled as a shoujo, but it definitely doesn't feel like one. 99% of the shoujos today are drama-heavy, but not Nijiiro Days.

Nijiiro days is a nice lighthearted & romantic story about 4 friends. Each being completely different in personality, yet their interactions are so natural and friendly.

The story follows their friendship as well as their love lives, with Natsuki's being the most prominent.

It's nothing new, but that's what makes it so perfect. We don't need a shoujo manga trying to be creative by thinking up a new way to create drama. Romance may be like that in real read more

As you can see I've given this manga a pretty good review. Nijiro Days or Rainbow Days is a really good manga. Though I have only read 49 chapters I can safely tell you that it's something that I recommend.

Story 10/10
This story truly deserves a 10/10. It is beautiful how the relationship between the four boys is built while still having all of them have separate personalities, stories, loves, and just overall lives. I also do like how they each have their own love lives and how that effects the story as well. The balance of comedy, romance, seriousness, and friendship is absoulutly perfect. read more

The series is not bad, but is not great, either. I like some of the characters and I especially like the friendship between the four main characters. The series is lighthearted and has some comedic moments, but I find the comedy lacking overall. However, the one character I do not like is Natsuki, who seems to have to most allotted time in the series and his romantic feelings. It was cute at the begging, but now it has become annoying. He has spent time with his crush for over a year and his three friends have supported and helped him read more
