The wraparound jacket band of the 16th compiled book volume of Tsuyoshi Yasuda's DAYS manga revealed on Friday that the manga's upcoming television anime will premiere this summer on MBS, Tokyo MX, BS11, and Animax.
Kônosuke Uda (One Piece, Ginga e Kickoff!!, Majin Bone) is directing the anime at MAPPA (Terror in Resonance, Rage of Bahamut Genesis). Kazuto Nakazawa (El-Hazard: The Wanderers, The Legend of Black Heaven, Terror in Resonance) is designing the characters for animation. Masafumi Mima (Macross Frontier, Infinite Stratos, Attack on Titan) is in charge of sound direction at Techno Sound. Yoshihiro Ike (Empire of Corpses, Cobra The Animation, Rage of Bahamut Genesis) is composing the music. Pony Canyon is producing the music.
The manga centers on two boys who were never meant to meet: Tsukushi Tsukamoto (played by Takuto Yoshinaga), who has no special skills but secretly hides a passionate heart, and Jin Kazama (Yoshitsugu Matsuoka), an isolated soccer genius. On a stormy night, the two meet, and that meeting creates a whirlwind in the world of high school soccer.
