Rainbow Days Manga to Bundle Original Anime DVD in September
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The May issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine revealed on Wednesday that a limited edition of Minami Mizuno's 13th Nijiiro Days (Rainbow Days) manga volume will bundle an original anime DVD on September 23. The DVD will contain a brand-new anime, and the volume will also bundle a 16-page mini-illustration collection and a postcard.
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.
Minami Mizuno launched the manga in Bessatsu Margaret in the February 2012 issue. Shueisha published the 11th compiled book volume last December, and will publish the 12th volume on April 25. The manga inspired a drama CD that Shueisha bundled with a limited edition of the seventh volume in October 2014. The manga inspired an ongoing television anime, and Funimation is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
Kodansha nominated the manga for its 40th annual Manga Awards.
