What is it about?
Nijiiro Days follows the colorful lives and romantic relationships of four high school boys—Natsuki Hashiba, a dreamer with delusions of love; Tomoya Matsunaga, a narcissistic playboy who has multiple girlfriends; Keiichi Katakura, a kinky sadist who always carries a whip; and Tsuyoshi Naoe, an otaku who has a cosplaying girlfriend.
When his girlfriend unceremoniously dumps him on Christmas Eve, Natsuki breaks down in tears in the middle of the street and is offered tissues by a girl in a Santa Claus suit. He instantly falls in love with this girl, Anna Kobayakawa, who fortunately attends the same school as him. Natsuki’s pursuit of Anna should have been simple and uneventful; however, much to his dismay, his nosy friends constantly meddle in his relationship, as they strive to succeed in their own endeavors of love.
What did I think?
Well, I don’t know what to say. Was it bad? No. Was it good? Again… no. The whole anime was just average. A typical slice of life anime about romance. Don’t get me wrong, I like slice of life anime about romance, but this one was just too much of a cliché. It has everything every slice of life anime has, but nothing else, nothing that makes it stand out.
It’s not that I think it was a waste of time watching it, it’s just that by the time I’ve finished my next anime I will just have forgotten all about this one. It had the potential to be more then it was.
