Japanese broadcast schedule revealed for upcoming adaptation based on novel by Shiwon Miura (The Great Passage)
A new trailer and the Japanese broadcast schedule have been published 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 ten college students challenging the Hakone Ekiden, a 2 day relay footrace that runs 100 kilometers from Tokyo to Hakone and back again.
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 in Japan according to the following TV schedule:
- Nippon TV: every Tuesday during the 25:29 time slot beginning on October 02, 2018.
- BS Nippon Corporation: every Tuesday during the 24:00 time slot beginning on October 09, 2018.
- Yomiuri TV: every Monday during the 26:59 time slot beginning on October 08, 2018.
- Shizuoka Daiichi TV: every Saturday during the 26:25 time slot beginning on October 06, 2018.
Please note that some Japanese TV schedules count early-morning programming as late-night programming of the previous day, so for example the 25:29 time slot on Tuesday evening is actually on Wednesday morning at 1:29 AM JST.
