A new key visual (above) and the OP / ED theme song performers have been revealed for Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru (known in English as Feel the Wind), an upcoming TV anime based on the 2006 novel by Shiwon Miura (The Great Passage) about a group of college students challenging the Hakone Ekiden, a relay footrace that runs 100 kilometers from Tokyo to Hakone and back again.
The opening theme, entitled "Catch up, latency", is performed by UNISON SQUARE GARDEN. The ending theme, entitled "Reset", is performed by Taichi Mukai.
The story of Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru follows Kakeru Kurahara, a freshman college student. One night, Kakeru is out jogging in an effort to clear his head when he is approached by a strange man on a bicycle who asks him if he likes to run. The man turns out to be Haiji Kiyose, and college senior who wants Kakeru to be the 10th runner on his team for the Hakone Ekiden relay race.
The Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru TV anime is directed by Kazuya Nomura and features animation by Production I.G. The series will broadcast on NTV, BS-NTV, and other stations beginning in October of 2018.
