Minami Mizuno's Nijiiro Days Manga Gets TV Anime Adaptation

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

The September issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine is announcing on Tuesday that Minami Mizuno's Nijiiro Days (Rainbow Days) manga is getting a television anime adaptation.

The anime will feature the same cast as a previous drama CD:

Takuya Eguchi (My Love Story!!'s Takeo Gōda) as Tomoya Matsunaga

Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free!'s Haruka Nanase) as Keiichi Katakura

Kōki Uchiyama (Nisekoi's Raku Ichijō) as Tsuyoshi Naoe

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Sword Art Online's Kirito) as Natsuki Hashiba

Minami Tsuda (Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily's Yui Funami) as Anna Kobaya

Yumi Uchiyama (Saki Episode of Side A's Arata Sagimori) as Mari Tsutsui

Ai Kayano (anohana's Menma) as Nozomi Matsunaga

Shizuka Ishigami (A Lull in the Sea's Akira Shiodome ) as Yukiko Asai

Tetsuro Amino (Broken Blade, Macross 7, Shiki) will serve as chief director, and Tomihiko Ohkubo (Brave Story unit director, Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals, Kiss wa Me ni Shite director) will direct the series at Production Reed (Onsen Yōsei Hakone-chan, Hōkago no Tinker Bell). Aki Itami (Mushi-Shi, Flowers of Evil) will handle the series composition.

The anime will open an official website on Tuesday.

The manga centers on a group of four male high school students who are close friends: Natsuki, Tomoya, Keiichi, and Tsuyoshi. The four boys have no club activities, and they hurry through their studies so they can spend their days having fun. Their main topic of interest: love. Natsuki has an unrequited crush on Anna, a girl from another class, and his friends keep meddling in their relationship.

Mizuno launched the manga in Bessatsu Margaret in the February 2012 issue, and Shueisha published the ninth compiled volume in May. The company will publish the 10th volume on September 25. The manga inspired a drama CD that Shueisha bundled with a limited edition of the seventh volume in October 2014.
