    風が強く吹いている
    Synopsis

    Kakeru, a former elite runner at high school, is chased for stealing food. He is saved by a Kansei University student Haiji, who is also a runner. Haiji persuades Kakeru to live in the old apartment "Chikuseisou" where he plans to team up with fellow residents to enter Hakone Ekiden Marathon, one of the most prominent university races in Japan. Kakeru soon finds out that all of the residents except for Haiji and himself are complete novices.

    This show is basically Haikyuu, but in college. The art style is similar, and I think the same company that do Haikyuu's anime are animating this as well, which really adds to the Haikyuu vibes

    Haiji comes across as incredibly likeable, and seems like a perfect foil for Kakeru, who is pretty much Kageyama 2.0

    I'm going to stick recommendations here for @Twelve , @miss_SMP , @Monster Trio and @Kia because I know they all follow Haikyuu, and for @Storm chaser because she liked the status where I was talking about the "new Haikyuu".

    Ohh something else for me to potentially geek out over. This could be fun... *heads out to search for a viewing source* first two episodes are on Crunchyroll. Sweet. I know what I’m about to do. Thanks, Marco!

    I had to find it during the commercial break. I’ve got the app on my phone since I use it to cast to my tv. Hopefully this’ll work/be the right link.

    It’s fun but it makes me miss running. *conflicted* #ireallywanttorunnow #iwonderhowfaridget #livingvicariouslythroughanime

    BTWs nothing is Haikyū lol. Still, after five episodes, I haven’t quit yet, (about to watch the sixth) so thanks for the recommendation. ^_^

    PS. @Storm chaser run some more for me, or think of me on your next run lol.

    Thanks! lol well I ran with the walker once and managed to fall (I was crossing the street, so embarrassing). I don’t think I’d do better with the cane. I’m sure it’d be worse with neither which is how I WANT to run. I dance every once in a while (very briefly). In fact, heading out shortly to the goth club and though I’ll do a lot of sitting, I’ll probably dance a little. So that’s some consolation. ^_^

    @Marco Polo
    Just watched episode 9–Yes I got busy and behind, pity me. What kind of crazy ending shit is that?! Are they trying to give us heart palpitations?! I mean he’s a main character and there’s another episode so how bad can it be? (I know, really bad—but I’m thankful I don’t have to wait to see since I’ve got two episodes backlog waiting on me.)

    I’ve just finished Episode 10, one more to go

    Kakeru’s development is pretty much Kageyama 2.0, aw man

    Episode 10 was so much fun to watch, seeing the transformation in Prince was really big, and the fact Kakeru gave up on his records, which he was still so attached to just 2 episodes ago, to help him is super touching

    I like this show

    I know, right? It’s crazy. Like the way that things are going it’s just so touching. All the feels! This show is really good at evoking multiple emotional reactions. I’m very pleased that you recommended it. ^_^

    I’ve just finished Ep 11

    Poor Shindo :(

    Also, I did a quick google search and it turns out this anime is based on a novel released in 2006, so it could well be that Haikyuu (which started in 2012) takes some influences from Run with the Wind

    Poor Shindo indeed. I’ve been there where you run just to get the stress out. That’s why I miss it so much. Not that I ever was fast at all but man was it therapeutic.

    Also, good to know about its/their origins and timing. ^_^

    Had I paid more attention to this in 2018, it would have made my Top 5 list. DAMMIT

    Looks like it’s going to have to compete with the 2019 big boys... I’m pretty sure it’ll do fine, though

    OUJI-SAMAAAAAAAAAA <3

    His "official record" is around 16:25-16:26 I think, about half the team made it in 16:29. That improvement is crazy, I'd be crying too if I were Haiji

    Just when I was getting into the flow of the qualifier and feeling good about the way things were going, anticipating some good running—holy fuck a wipeout and is Haiji going to trip over him?! Oh and yes, that’s the end of the episode, of course. Otherwise, I enjoyed it and am glad that they got their matching track suits. ^_^
