During his last spring break before starting high school, Tsukushi Tsukamoto meets Jin Kazama, who invites him to a pick-up soccer game. Their chance meeting, and his first-ever experience with soccer, move kind-hearted, timid Tsukushi to enroll in his new high school's soccer club, which is among the strongest in all of Japan. Unbeknownst to the rest of the world, there's something amazing hidden inside Tsukushi's heart … and through his trials and tribulations in the soccer club, it's beginning to blossom!
I knew about Days after searching for sports anime similar to Haikyu, and Days was one of the recommendations. Granted, it took time to pick up, because the lead character wasn't just an underdog, he was just downright sad. But trust me, if you hang in there long enough, it gets interesting. Character development! The art! The storylines of the other team members! Days is just really fun to read, with that same level of adrenaline and excitement in each chapter, you can't help but read it one after the other, especially if it's a game arc. (Of course the insane sports moves of the characters might be slightly unrealistic, but this is manga we're talking about.) If you're looking for a feel-good, sports manga with a whole lot of heart, Days is worth it!
