Time Setting of Daiya[]

Daiya no A makes no evident mention of or allusion to the year it takes place in. However, basing on the numbered tournaments, there will be two possible setting of Daiya:

  • Summer Koshien: Eijun, as a first year, participates in the regional qualifiers for the 89th Summer Koshien, in the real world, the 89th Summer Koshien was held in 2007. Now, Eijun, as Seidou's ace, is participating in the reginal qualifiers for the 90th Summer Koshien, held in 2008 in the real world. This could set Daiya to be in Academic Year (A.Y) 2007-2008 in Eijun's first year, and set in A.Y. 2008-2009 in his second year.
  • Spring Koshien: the tournament in which Seidou participates after winning in the fall tournament is the 84th Spring Koshien, which was held in 2012 in the real world. This could set Daiya to be in Academic Year 2012-2013 upon Eijun's second year.

However, the final chapter, Chapter 412, of Act I indicates that Tetsu, Chris, and their batchmates graduated in Heisei Era 27. Heisei Era 27 is 2015 in the Western calendar. I find Daiya having no fixed year setting to be amazing, as Tj-sensei just keeps incorporating "recent" stuff to the series. However, for the purpose of giving birth years to the characters, I would like to pick Daiya as set in Heisei Era 27 (2015).

Birthdays[]

Japanese education system dictates children aged 6 by April 1 to start Grade 1.[1] They will then turn 7 in the next 12 months (April-March). This makes First Year high school (Grade 10) students aged 15 when they start in high school, then age another year within the school year. Setting Daiya to be initially in 2014, and noting that as of Chapter 244, it is July 26, 2015, the following are the birthdays and current ages (in-universe) of Daiya characters:
