Run With The Wind Episode 17 - The twins have hit a bit of a road block as they start to question the time they've put into running. And while there are no easy answers, each member of the team is making the decision for themselves as to what this race will mean to them or whether it means anything.
While we aren't quite half-way through the Winter anime season, I'm just taking a moment to take stock, look at my watch list, and I'm trying to predict which of the shows I'm watching will actually hold out until the end of the season to be my favourite. In the meantime, I'd love to know what you are watching, what you've dropped, what you think will be anime of the season, and what you think is going to fall apart.
Run With The Wind Episode 16: This is it, the qualifier. The team will either make it to the next level or their dream will end right here. There's plenty of drama to be had in an episode that shows off many of this anime's excellent qualities.
Run With The Wind Episode 15 - It is the final push leading up to the qualifier and Haiji has doubts but is staying the course. The team has never been more together and excitable but of course enthusiasm may not be enough. The qualifier begins and we once again are left on a cliff-hanger.
Run With The Wind Episode 14 Review: The training camp comes to a sparkling finish and then we see whether the final characters can get their official times before the qualifier. Still, given the narrative there isn't that much in the way of surprises here.
Run With The Wind Episode 13 finally reveals what drove Kakeru to withdraw from running and well... I hate to say it but he seems to have some other issues outside of running that the anime probably isn't going to address.
Summer has arrived and while many in the team are in high spirits, Kakeru still hasn't really faced his demons. As the team goes on training camp will Kakeru find what he needs to move forward.
Run With The Wind Episode 11: The real heart of the team gets the focus turned on Sakaki this week and we see just what this quiet achiever can do. However, the real star of the episode is the sound; once again poor Sakaki is getting overshadowed despite his best efforts.
Run With The Wind Episode 10 Review: Who would have thought that all it took to bring this team together completely was Haiji collapsing? While it might be a cheap plot device, you can't argue with the results in this episode that will melt your heart and have you cheering along with the rest of the team for Prince.
