Days synopsis

Tsukushi Tsukamoto is weak, clumsy, and shy and the main target of abusers. Although he suffers from his agony, it leads him to a fateful encounter with his classmate Jin Kazama, a brilliant soccer player his age. After rescuing Tsukamoto from bullies, Kazama invites him to a futsal match because his team is missing a member.

Although he has difficulty playing at eye level with more experienced players, Tsukamoto is so passionate and persistent that not even an injured foot prevents him from running on the field. His endless races and continuous efforts inspire the team, especially the already unmotivated Kazama. When Tsukamoto scores the winning goal, he realizes he enjoys the sport a lot and plays alongside Kazama.
