Synopsis

Kakeru, a former elite runner at high school, is chased for stealing food. He is saved by a Kansei University student Haiji, who is also a runner. Haiji persuades Kakeru to live in the old apartment "Chikuseisou" where he plans to team up with fellow residents to enter Hakone Ekiden Marathon, one of the most prominent university races in Japan. Kakeru soon finds out that all of the residents except for Haiji and himself are complete novices.

This is surely the best anime of this season.

Story:-9/10
Looks like the anime industry has finally acknowledged the existence of a mythical place known as 'college'. From the very first second you are drawn in due to the unique storyline.

Art:-10/10
The art style is so fluid that it easily sets this anime apart from others.Absolutely no inconsistencies/drop in quality anywhere.

Characters:-10/10
This is the USP of the show. We have 10 people,each studying in different majors and different years.Ample screentime is given to every character.Their interactions are highly realistic.

Enjoyment:-10/10
This show is a perfect mixture of drama,motivation and comedy.There is never a dull moment.It feels difficult to wait an entire read more

WARNING: SINCE THIS ANIME IS CURRENTLY AIRING, THIS IS NOT THE COMPLETED REVIEW, I WILL EDIT THIS REVIEW AS THE SHOW CONTINUES. MY OPINIONS MAY CHANGE OR NOT CHANGE IN THAT TIME.

I usually sleep on my left side of my bed, while ya'll sleep on this show. But... seriously guys, this is probably the most underrated anime from this season. A hidden gem if you must. Which is surprising, with sports anime usually gathering the biggest fandoms in the anime community, such as "Yuri!! On Ice!", "Free!!" and "Haikyuu!". Maybe it's because this anime doesn't have a exclamation mark in its name? I'm just joking. read more

Story (7): The story is neither extremely unique nor really unoriginal, but it is pretty standard story for a sport anime.

Character (9):
There are various unique, interesting and lovable characters in this anime, and we get a deep-dive in the personality and development of the most important characters, making it really easy to relate to and feel with the characters, as well as making them more likeable and real.

Sound (9):
OP: Pretty fitting for the show. The opening is chill and all good but nothing outstanding.
ED: The ending is pretty neat, the beat is really relaxing.
OST: (the god) Yuuki Hayashi composed the soundtrack, read more

Fall 2018 has been a pretty good season, some might even say it's great. Among all of the shows I've seen so far, Kaze ga has got to be one of my favorites. And I'm surprised at how underrated this show is right now, considering how enjoyable and good it is. I haven't watched a lot of sports shows AND I'm only writing this after watching 6 eps (I'll probably update this when I have more things to say), so of course take my opinion with a grain of salt.

First, probably the weakest aspect of the show so far: the story. Now, I don't want read more
