  • Simply one of the best anime on running!
    Simply one of the best anime storytelling!
    So so much depth in each character and their stories.

    And above all, it has made me start taking on running with a whole new perspective!

    Try to find the live action movie from 2009, but no luck!! :'(

  • Carried By The Wind!
    The pacing of the anime is great and each episode builds up not just the event of Tokyo-Hakone but the camaraderie of the team as well. Each episode feels like a deeper dive in the lives of the Kansei running team and you get sucked in. Admittedly, if you're not a fan of sports anime, you might find this slow paced.

    If you're looking for a nice anime to watch that's about friendship and ...

  • 'Run with the Wind' is a anime that anyone can enjoy watching
    Finished the entire show within the night and throughly enjoyed it. It's really a wholesome anime with great characters that have an amazing strong friendship. Love how their end goal isn't about getting 1st place and more how running isn't always about winning or completing!

  • A great show that makes you want to run
    Run with the Wind is an underrated anime that feature great storytelling, unique characters, comedy, and is one of those rare shows that I've both enjoyed and would recommend to grandmother.
    Also, it's one of those even rarer animes that has actual ending.

    The plot starts with some college students who each find housing in the same building that has amazingly cheap rent, however none of them ...

  • Underrated and unexpected
    Don't ever really watch sports anime, but I'm glad I gave this one a shot. What a ride. I had no complaints from beginning to end. This anime is not just simply about running. The animation quality, music, characters + their backstories and individual development were all beautifully unfolded across these 23 episodes.

  • Running Anime? Who would have though it was possible?
    Only in Japan can an anime be made about distance running that's compelling and gives people a sense about how running feels. The animation is first rate, the characters are all pretty memorable, and the story is well thought out.

    I'm both happy and sad that it's a single self-contained story. I wish I could watch more anime about running but at the same time I'd glad they're leaving me ...

  • What a rollercoaster ride. One of the BEST anime ever created.
    This anime is absolute perfection. It is honest. Raw. The characters will probe and steal your heart. The animation is outstanding and beautiful. Each episode will take you on a rollercoaster ride and make you fall in love with each characters' personality. The challenges and battles that they all faced together. This anime shows how each and everyone of us is capable of connecting with each other ...

  • What a ride! Made me want to run
    This is absolutely spectacular in every aspect of the word. Knowing Production IG created this masterpiece, I held it to the same standards as Haikyuu and was not disappointed. I immediately grew attached to all the characters. I hope more anime will be as inspiring and heartfelt as this one.

  • Best Anime Of The Year - Not Simply A Sports Anime
    I was over sports anime per se. I mean, everything seemed like a redo of "Free!" But, this one was far beyond a sports anime and it really should be slated in many other categories i.e., Drama for example.

    This one was the best anime of the year and very under-sold and under-rated from what I have seen. I have no idea how the Japanese have received it. Here in the U.S. it is very difficult to ...

  • DO YOU LIKE RUNNING?
    LISTEN. WATCH RUN WITH THE WIND. nothing gets me better than a sports anime with a good ensemble cast and run with the wind delivers on that! but also on SO MUCH MORE. it's so refreshing to have the cast all be in university, and also [vine voice] they were dorm mates.... you'd be hard pressed to find any show more grounded and likable and absolutely fucking heartwrenching than this one. the main ...
