  • One of the best sports anime I've seen
    I can't speak highly enough for this anime, but I'll try do it some justice.
    As far as visuals/animation goes it's very standard production, but the storytelling of their struggles as a team is where it really shines. The character building is really top notch, you get to know something about each character and why they decide whether or not to join Haiji in running the Hakone Ekiden. The ...

  • One of the greatest sports anime I have ever seen
    Normally I'm not a big fan of sports anime, especially if I have no idea about the sport. I find them hard to get in to and the conclusion not as rewarding as a true slice of life or action anime. Most of the time the protagonist just climbs to the top and never has to overcome themselves. In this anime it is the complete opposite, it's more about overcoming one's self than the actual goal.

  • Running with stops for personal problems here and there
    I also highly recommend this one. It is my favorite from the fall anime lineup. We have 23 episodes and 10 team members, so everyone's personal problems should be dealt with soon and we can get to the preparations for the Hakone Ekiden. I look forward to seeing Prince make his record, if he does, and finding out who that maniacal-looking sportswriter is.

  • Great characters, great anime
    character development is really well done. All the characters portrayed are relatable, showing good personalities along with their individual insecurities. Although the frames and background seems static, I find that the overall animation is quite pleasing.

  • Fantastic Anime, I would re watch it.
    REALNESS,DOPE,ACTION,EMOTION Sports animes are usually cliche but this one hits the mark for me. Love it. The plot and how everything around it is captivating. Leaves you on the edge of your seat and you love watching the characters grow. A+ for the show.

  • One of the most excellent shows present today
    Going in I was expecting to be just another sports anime but to my surprise, it turned out to be soo much more than that. The characters are superbly written and the way they mesh with each other to create different life lessons every episode is amazing. Would highly recommend watching a couple of episodes to get a feel for the show.

    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 anime about sports
    Firstly, I'm biased since this anime is about college kids, and I'm a college kid. I love the art, music, plot and characters employed to create what I consider to be one of the greatest sports anime out there so far. The characters are well written, and while the plot is kind of generic, it is still interesting because the characters are so well written and developed.
