We’ve previously announced seventeen shows for our winter simulcast season, but we’re adding a new two-part show in that’s perfect for any fans of love stories or cute anime boys— and of Japanese male seiyuu voice actors!
Rainbow Days is based on a shoujo romance manga that ran in the same magazine as other great shoujo manga like Kimi ni Todoke, My Love Story!!, Wolf Girl and Black Prince, Blue Spring Ride, Lovely Complex, and High School Debut, but it has a twist— unlike some other shoujo manga, the main characters are boys.
The anime version is also noteworthy in that it features some of the hottest male seiyuu voice actors who’ve voiced tons of popular bishounen characters. Each episode is about 12 minutes, and includes a separate 12-minute Japanese voice actor seiyuu show episode called “club RAINBOW,” giving you a special behind-the-scenes look into the world of Japanese voice acting. Both episodes will launch together at the same time every week at funimation.com/rainbow-days, so be sure to catch two episodes there every Sunday at 9:30 AM.
