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.

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 ...

Overall I give this a straight 9/10, GREAT!

I found it so refreshing to read a Shoujo manga that didn't center around girls and their school life antics. It was nice to read something that showed that boys had thoughts and problems just like girls do, because we're all the same!

Cute, cute, cute! Let's face it, we almost all read these types of manga to get all squeaky and fake happy cry when our ship goes canon. Thats exactly what this anime did for me. The characters are typical, but you see them in a new light, no one is mysterious and we don't know what ...

Mixed Feelings
The manga has a great start and a pleasant development. However, in my opinion, it falls a lot from the mid to end of the story.

For a story that has romance as its central theme, it suffers from the same problem that we see in many other series categorized under that genre: It basically stops following the relationship when the characters get together.

This manga especially chooses to change entirely the focus on the last chapters to high schoolers' problems instead of developing the new-formed relationships (that btw took longer than needed to be established). The extra chapters make up only a tiny bit for ...
