TV anime adaptation based on soccer manga by Tsuyoshi Yasuda debuts in July of 2016
Two new cast members have been announced for Days, an upcoming TV anime adaptation based on the soccer manga by Kōnosuke Uda that is serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine. The new line-up includes:
Suzune Okabe as Naoki Shiratori, a 1st years student at Seiseki High School and a forward on the soccer club's team. Naoki excels at techniques involving high elevation shots. Naoki was team-mates with Hiroyuki Kurusu and Tetsuya Nitobe in middle school.
Toshiyuki Toyonaga as Sho Nakijin, a first year student at Seiseki High School and a goalkeeper on the soccer club's team. Sho has a strong sense of stability and so is good at making saves.
Days is a sports drama that follows the friendship between Tsukushi Tsukamoto, a weak and clumsy boy who makes up for his athletic inepitude with hard-work and guts, and Jin Kazama, a soccer prodigy. Together the two young men join the soccer club at Seiseki High School, which is one of the most prestigious athletic clubs in all of Japan.
The Days TV anime is directed by Kōnosuke Uda and features animation by MAPPA. The series begins its Japanese broadcast on MBS, Tokyo MX, BS11, and Animax in July of 2016.
