The special edition releases for Volumes 21 and 22 of DAYS, a sports manga by Tsuyoshi Yasuda, will include original animation DVDs featuring new animated adventures for the Seiseki High School soccer club.
Volume 21 will feature a story where Seiseki challenges their rivals, Sakuragi High, to an all-star beach soccer battle during summer training camp. Volume 22 will include a story where numerous powerful soccer clubs gather at Kagoshima Camp, only to engage in card games, truth-or-dare, and other camp shenanigans instead of practicing.
The original DAYS manga is serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine. A TV anime adaptation of DAYS with direction by Kōnosuke Uda and animation by MAPPA is currently streaming on Crunchyroll, who describe the story as follows:
"With no skills or outstanding features, one boy hides a passionate heart, Tsukushi Tsukamoto. The other is a lonely soccer genius, Jin Kazama. The winds of change begin to blow in the world of high school soccer as these two boys with nothing in common come together. The curtain on this hot-blooded, touching story is rising..."
DAYS Volume 21 will hit Japanese bookstores on March 17, 2017, while Volume 22 will be published on May 17, 2017.
