    Probably one of the best shows this season. High Potential.
    As the title suggests this show might be one of the best shows in the market right now. It displayed remarkably high potential based on the preview and episode one.
    It is highly recommended.

    Synopsis
    Basically, 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 ...

    Underrated God Tier Anime
    This is god tier. Orchestrated so highly on my god ratings that it meshes perfectly within myself and my soul. The music? God tier. The characters? God tier. The sound? God Tier. The animation? God tier. The dog? God tier. The show, so funny, so animated, yet so real, so human, to the point where you re-evaluate your life. This is what a god tier anime is supposed to do.

    We need more sports anime like this
    Good lord this anime makes me feel nostalgic about my t&f days. Only 4 episodes in and it kicked me in the feels. Beyond having a great animation style with the same production company as Haikyuu, it's an extremely character driven story that seems to be quite honest about the perception of dreams and things like running for the collegiate aged generation. The way this series paints mental blocks, ...

    Great Anime for Runners (Cross Country and Track)
    If you ran Cross Country or Track and field in high school or college, then "Run with the Wind" will feel really nostalgic to you. Watching the show brought back a lot of memories from my time running back in high school. It also shows a lot of training that we would have used during XC. If you run for recreation or for your health, you'll still have a great time watching.

    Interesting Start of the Show
    The characters seem very dynamic. I look forward to seeing their deeper motivations. Overall, an excellent introduction to a wide cast of characters. It is nice to see a sports amine that takes place in university. Hopefully this will add a new flare to the genre.

    Great show, closer to a slice of life than a sports anime
    Was a bit skeptical about the premise of the show, but the execution is actually really good. Don't mistake this for a sports anime like I did initially. Characters are well developed and sound track is on point. Great light hearted anime that might even make you want to go for a jog after watching!

    With this, you're going to Feel It™
    I went into this show with low expectations as sports anime can be very hit or miss for me. Thankfully, this show went above and beyond. Running may seem like an unusual sport to focus on (for many reasons), but you should not let yourself be deterred from this show.

    There are so many great points and positives that can be attributed to Run with the Wind. It's realistic: it stays true to ...

    Great story, the characters feel real
    I don't think I have liked an anime this much before, probably because I ran a lot in high school and this just feels so real in many ways. But the characters and emotions are great. It's definitely a great story about facing reality and what it means to challenge yourself so far.

    Suprising! Excited to see where this goes...
    With no synopsis to go on, and no hype (at least none that I've come across) I nearly passed this by as the title picture is a bit dull. On a whim, I decided to watch the first episode. It was much more than I expected. The scenery is very well done and pleasing to look at, especially the city scenes. I am writing this after viewing just the first episode.
    From the start the story draws you in. ...

    This is an anime that you should seriously consider watching
    This is the first anime that is going to be my potential bridge into slice of life anime.

    I'm a strictly shonen type of guy I always hated animes that revolved around peoples lives and how they get through it because I always found it dumb.

    I'm not here to watch you deal with heartbreak or etc I'm here to watch you stop on the antagonist because your dreams are stronger than theirs.

    But ...
