Sport takes a bit of a back seat as we spend a lot of this episode with Tsukamoto and his mother. This episode is adorable as we have a chance to really see how joining a team has affected Tsukamoto’s entire life and outlook. Then of course we get right back into prep for the finals as the team get pumped up and ready to go. From a plot point of view, this episode is all set up and reflection, but it’s the good kind that feels like it is going to make the payoff worth the effort and not the kind that feels like they were trying to stretch the run time unnecessarily. Looking forward to the match next week.
Days is available on Crunchyroll.
