Synopsis

From an early age, Haruka Sakura was made an outcast due to his unconventional appearance and lack of social skills. However, the rough treatment turned him into a proficient fighter, which is now the only thing he prides himself on. Starting at Furin High School, where it is rumored that strength is valued over academics, Sakura has only one goal—taking the top spot.

Involved in a street brawl the day before his enrollment, Sakura happens to meet a group of his future schoolmates. Instead of the usual rejection, they fight alongside him, demonstrating that what the school actually cares about is protecting the town of Makochi from any harm—hence why the students call themselves "Bofurin." Surprised by the support and appreciation of the townspeople, Sakura has a hard time accepting their goodwill.

Though unfamiliar with kindness being shown to him, Sakura must learn to push past his discomfort when Bofurin is pitted against formidable enemies. After experiencing the feeling of acceptance, he finds himself fighting for the sake of others for the first time.

Ever wondered what Tokyo Revengers would be like if it were good? Well, look no further. Windbreaker is the best delinquent anime I’ve seen and one of the best of the season. Cloverworks’ latest project has amazing production values, badass fights and cool characters. A must watch for action fans.

Windbreaker is a meathead’s paradise. First episode had one of the coolest fights of the season. Within the first 6 episodes we had our first battle arc, etc. This show has nonstop hands flying and it looks great! The story isn’t the strongest so far, but it’s got a lot of potential and it seems they ...

Mixed Feelings
TL;DR
Wind Breaker's only good merit is the action thanks to Cloverworks' production, unless you delve deeper into what the anime is about.

If you know me, most of you would be familiar with me pointing out flaws in character detail since they're mostly the bulk of what makes an anime good. Besides that, I'm just an avid fan of action anime, it's just blatantly obvious that I regularly watch them every year. It's one that I felt most comfortable with, one where many greats were born from it, ones that have made me laugh, ones that have made me cry, but it's also one where ...

Sakura leaves urban life for a quieter town known for its school of the strongest delinquents. Convinced he has what it takes to climb to the top, Sakura is ready to spend his high school days fighting for supremacy.

Story & Character: 3/10 & 4/10
Delinquent series typically incorporate elements of conflict over territory, finances, and hierarchy. While Wind Breaker includes turf wars, it lacks intensity, with fights ending in trivial ways. The series feels more like a civilized drama than a battle shounen, focusing on character dynamics and situational comedy rather than rivalry. Sakura's goal of rising to the top is challenged by the reality that ...
