Days Anime Season 2: Will It Come Back Soon?

Days was one of the most popular manga and anime in the entertainment industry and now fans are eager to see Days Anime Season 2. The popularity of this manga actually began back in 2013 and was continued until 2021. With that popularity, there is also the Days Anime adaptation. But the real question is, are there any possibilities for Days Anime Season 2?

Days Anime is one of the Japanese sports animations. The manga, written by Tsuyoshi Yasuda, was published in a total of 42 volumes that were written from April 2013 until January 2021. On top of that, with several manga awards, MAPPA Studio decided to make this story an anime adaptation back in 2015 with a total of 24 episodes and 5 OVA episodes. Now, how about Days Anime Season 2?

Days Anime Season 1: Recap Story

Days Anime Season 2

Day's story follows the struggles of Tsukushi Tsukamoto, a shy, clumsy, and bullied teenager about to start high school. He decides to get into Seiseki High School so he can be with his neighbor and childhood friend Sayuri Tachibana, who is one year his senior. Just as he is bullied after visiting Sayuri at her work, Tsukushi is saved by Jin Kazama, who scares away the bullies by attacking them with nunchucks, and declares himself to be a vagrant and lost in town. Jin then asks Tsukushi if he likes football and asks him to join him the same night for a futsal match as his team is one player short.

Tsukushi surprises Jin by showing up after running almost ten miles under the heavy rain and without one shoe, after another run-in with his bullies. Short, young, and clumsy, Tsukushi plays incredibly badly but keeps running throughout the whole match despite having injured his foot, showing such an effort that it motivates his other teammates. After a final sprint, Tsukushi manages to score the decisive goal, smashing his head against the pole by doing it. 

He finds out later that Jin will also be a freshman at Seiseki, and decides to join the football club to play with him, unknowing that the football club in Seiseki is nationwide famous and looked after by students from all over the country. He manages to make it to the team despite being incredibly frail, weak, and clumsy thanks to his continuous efforts and amazing perseverance, and further he shows incredible ability in motivating the rest of the team to work as hard as possible.

Days Anime Season 2: Renewal Status

After the first season aired back in 2016, now it’s more than five years, fans are waiting for Days Anime Season 2. The story from season 1 was not completed after a total of 29 episodes. That pretty much makes sense, compared to the 42 volumes of the Days Manga Series. But luckily the creators promised that they would be completing the plot. In fact, in a tweet, Crunchyroll confirmed that the Days anime will return for a second season.

However, it was later revealed that Crunchyroll had misreported, and there won’t be another season of the anime. The company later corrected themselves and announced that the sequel would be presented as three original anime DVDs. They also released a teaser promo and visual for the final Days Anime project. Later, Studio MAPPA launched the three episodes on March 16, May 17, and July 17, 2018. With that, they wrapped up the story of the anime and resolved all the remaining plotlines.
