Weak, clumsy, and shy, Tsukushi Tsukamoto is a prime target for bullies. Though he suffers through their torment, it leads to a fateful encounter with fellow Seiseki High School student Jin Kazama, a genius soccer player of the same age. After saving Tsukamoto from the bullies, Kazama invites him to a futsal match since his team is one man short.

Although he struggles to keep up with the more experienced players, Tsukamoto is passionate and persistent; not even an injured foot stops him from running around the field. His endless runs and continuous efforts inspire the team, particularly the unmotivated Kazama. As Tsukamoto scores the winning goal, he realizes that he thoroughly enjoys soccer, as well as playing alongside Kazama.

Inspired by Kazama, Tsukamoto decides to join him in the school's soccer club. Little does he know, the Seiseki team is renowned nationwide, and a terrible player like him might not even pass the selection process, let alone play in the first team. Even so, Tsukamoto forces his way into Seiseki with the only thing he is good at—running straight ahead!

Preliminary (Unknown/376 eps)
I know this manga has not been fully scanlated yet (last time I checked only first volume) but I just bought all released volumes yesterday and I am in thirst of talking about how satisfied I am with DAYS. For the start, I am indeed a fan of Yasuda Tsuyoshi's (especially Over Drive *sob*) works, but soccer really never become my thing. I did following some soccer series in the past, however only Giant Killing and this series that was able to give me a real enjoyment of the sport.

On the beginning you might think that the premise is not that original and some of ...

Preliminary (252/376 eps)
Now i know that 10/10 is a really high score, and I’m not very confident that I’d be able to provide a constructive review, but to anyone that’s come across this series, give it a chance. Even if sports isn’t your thing or if soccer just isn’t your sport, still, give it a chance. Because, at least for me, it did not disappoint,

So, starting with the story. It’s simple, there’s a fateful meeting between two people that were, in normal circumstances, unlikely to become friends. Because of Tsukushi’s honest and hard working personality, he kept his promise to a stranger, Kazama, that helped him ...
