They'll take your emotions for a run. For those who followed my episodic reviews you will already know it took me awhile to get into this series. The opening episodes, while there were some really pretty animations, didn't really grab me as we set up a fairly standard team sport anime. We had Haiji, the … Continue reading Run With The Wind Series Review
Run With The Wind Episode 23 - The end has come and while it is sad to see this anime leave my watch list it is one of the rare few anime that seemed to realise exactly how many episodes it had to tell its story and it used them well. Not outstaying its welcome, this one has finished where it needs to.
Run With The Wind Episode 22 Review - King has his moment and then we pass the sash to Kakeru. I think this is what we've all been waiting for.
Run With The Wind Episode 21 Review - While not as powerful as episode 20, episode 21 delivers what we've come to expect and that is a consistently good story with some fairly impressive character work.
Run With The Wind Episode 20: The second half of the first leg of the race and we have found our new most inspirational character. Seriously brilliant episode.
Run With The Wind Episode 19 Review - I'm seriously loving how they've built up this team over the series because we're in the event, and despite having zero interest in running, I just watched three guys run one after the other for twenty minutes without looking away (except when I had to pause it because I was crying and couldn't read the subs). Yeah, Run With The Wind is good.
Run With The Wind Episode 18 - So much happened this episode and yet somehow it didn't feel rushed over. It felt like everything happened exactly as it needed to in order to bring us to the starting line. Though of course, they can't let us finish without a little bit more drama.
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.
