A girl moves from the city and goes to school in the country due to some circumstances in her father's job. Her new schoolmates keep her at a distance. There is a boy she'd like to get to know better, but she worries about how he might treat her and doesn't try to get closer. She begins to hate life in the countryside and longs to return to the city, but she ends up meeting a real god of wind.
Alright I am here to review this because someone have to do this.
There is not thing so much thing to make your enjoyment spoil though you can bypass Story section for caution.
Story (7) : Kaze no Matasaburou is a short movie. It's a Fantasy movie of 22 minute. There's not much story to tell about. Story reveal around about a boy who seems bored with his daily life and girl who came from city to countryside .She found his life quite awkward as she has to study with animals. And then after finding a power by accidentally when she was falling in love with
countryside she has to move on to city again.
Art (7) : Art is fair enough to enjoy this short movie. Moreover I think this art gave this movie some more enjoyment.
Sound (8) : Sound was pretty good. It was quite unexpected to be honest. It was relaxing to hear.
Character (6) : I will pass this section as it not important for this movie
Enjoyment (8) : If you used to like relaxing and peaceful movie you will enjoy it for sure. It was enjoyable for me at least.
Overall (7) : Overall if we consider this movie it was good. There's not so much thing to hope for yet you can watch it relaxing. I can ensure you your 22 won't be a waste of time.
There isn't much to this movie because it's only 22 minutes long but it's pretty good for a short relaxing film to pass time.
Story - 7/10:
They story was pretty basic, girl meets famous wind god, goes away and leaves clues about what she did behind.
Art - 9/10:
The art style is actually more to my preference than say the mainstream art style these days e.g. the art style of AssClass/Yuri on Ice. It gives a feeling of oldness (idk if that makes sense) and just makes the film itself more enjoyable.
Sound - 9/10:
Can't really say much about this aside from it matches the overall
story very well.
Character - 7/10:
There isn't much on the development but the producers kind of left us on a cliff hanger with the girl and boy's relationship. It would've been better to either make a sequel developing the characters further or simply making their relationship as a come and go one instead of having the girl seem like she doesn't want to go back to the city after staying at the boy's house OR making the girl refuse the offer to go back to the city and instead stay with her new friends.
Enjoyment - 9/10:
Even though it was short. I actually quite liked the episode simply because I don't have to work my brain so hard after watching 10 different airing anime at the same time and figuring out all the relationships and characters of each.
Overall, I'd give it an 8/10 and I'd definitely recommend this to people who just want to chill ◕ω◕
Where do I even begin? I like everything about it >.<
This movie was like a breath of fresh air. You watch it and find yourself lost in the simplicity of it. Everything about it whispers serenity and calmness.
Story - 9
It started with a boy seeming to while away the minutes before the start of the class by rocking himself in his chair. From here on, the background music was introduced and it sets the tone of the story and how his classmates (who were yep surprise surprise--animals) started talking about a magical being they call Matasaburou---child of the Wind God. No one can
really validate his existence and he's more like an urban legend than an actual entity. Then came in the teacher with a transfer student who happened to be a human girl.
No developments here whatsoever (because this is NOT a series) but like all stories, or for this matter, films, there is a conflict and climax. I don't want to spoil so let me just say that like the rest of the film, they were not so complicated but match the story very well.
Okay, since it has Kaze in its title, there ought to be whooshing and blowing sounds here and there and yep, it didn't disappoint. Since the setting is in the countryside, there are more trees, more nature and more wind in here and the sound they make in the film seem real. Try to close your eyes for a sec and just listen to the music and it will tell you what I'm talking about. The story coupled with the background music will put you in a comforting mood that would make you not want to do anything but relax, savor it and enjoy it.
Character - 10
The characters were so cute let me just say! All adults (except for one) were humans in this film but most of them were animals. It's funny how they have animals in class and they speak and talk like humans too, welcoming the new girl on her first day. Being a girl hailing from the city though, she seemed not used to the company of animals and was rather aloof and weirded out by her "classmates". She has a worm for a classmate! I am deathly afraid of worms or any small crawling insects but the worm in the film was soooo cute hahaha you have to see it for yourself. And there's a tsundere moment for their rabbit classmate :3 super cute :3 :3

Oh gosh. The art is refreshing. It reminds me so much of The Tale of Princess Kaguya except that one has milder tones whereas the art outline for Kaze is more pronounced. I like it, like how the characters were made alive by the illustrator. The colors were great too. Very soothing to the eyes. Everything is soft and subtle.
Overall - 10/10
I enjoyed it so much and I like how it ended. It actually leaves the audience with a sense of having to think about how they want it to end. Did the girl just leave for the day and will come back after a few days or did she leave for good? It can be interpreted either way and even though there is a talk of leaving, it doesn't make you feel empty afterwards. To be honest, I kept thinking about the cute worm and tsun rabbit at this point.
So, if you are going to ask the question, 'Should I watch this anime?" My answer would be a resounding Yes. :) Have fun!
