DAYS Soccer TV Anime Gets Finale as 3 New Original Anime DVDs
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the anime of Tsuyoshi Yasuda's DAYS soccer manga revealed on Tuesday that the previously announced finale to the 2016 television anime's story will be available as three original anime DVDs (OADs) next year. The project will feature brand-new animation to depict the All-Japan High School Soccer Tournament's Tokyo Preliminary Round with Tōin Academy, and it will be available in limited editions of manga volumes 26 to 28 on March 16, May 17, and July 17.
Yasuda launched DAYS in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in April 2013, and Kodansha published the manga's 24th volume on Tuesday. The limited editions of the 21st and 22nd manga volumes also bundled OADs. Kodansha Advanced Media began releasing the manga digitally in English earlier this year.
Kodansha Advanced Media describes the story:
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!
A 24-episode television anime series based on the manga ran from July to December of 2016. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Ponycan USA announced plans to release the series in the United States. Weekly Shōnen Magazine had revealed last December that a sequel for the anime series is in the works.
