There is a high chance that if you liked Haikyuu you will like Kaze ga Tsuyoku as well. I'm already loving both! You can feel the similar vibes coming through. The art styles are very similar so characters like Kageyama from Haikyuu and the main character Kakeru from Kaze look very similar. Also there is something going on with the importance of being "number 10".
So definitely check out one if you have seen the other since they are both Sports genre and by same studio!
Haikyuu!! and Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru are both male sports anime with A LOT of characters. Each of the characters have their own unique personalities, and provide comic relief. As they're both from the same studio, the characters are even drawn the same way!
Haikyuu!! is volleyball, while Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru is running. They both take the sport seriously, and aren't complete fujobait. You'll love one if you love the other!
Both are about sports and friendship ,a little bit of comedy . They have different stories behind the main characters and most of the character have high-spirited about sports. And when they face the challenges too. HAIKYUU is more about doesn't give up and keep working on it. A lot of emotional parts too...you will love it by having goosebumps . After watching this, you might have the feeling of wanted to play or try the sport (if you know me ;)
Same art style and characters have some similarities as they're from the same studio. However, the difference in the focus in the type of character. Kaze has a Kageyama figure and Sawamura (Daichi) -like captain figure who are the main focus. There is a similar drive by characters to be in the top. Characters get their backstories, development, comic relief. There are rival schools, flaws and growth.
Best of all Kaze is a college anime (FINALLY!) and draws on the incredible experience of competition on that higher level.
So definitely check out one if you have seen the other!
* They're both sports animes with a team of multiple main characters, all being boys
* Both series use comedy and slice of life to reduce the intensity
* (the god) Yuuki Hayashi is composing the OST for both series, meaning the music is really similar (and awesome)
* The series is both made by Production I.G.
* Takahiro Chiba is the Chief Animator Director in both animes. Which means they have the same artstyle
They're two spokon anime, Haikyuu in indeed about volleyball, while Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru is about running.
In each one of them the real protagonist is the team and every single member has his own importance in that; they work so hard to gain what they want and eventually they manage to strengthen their bonds.
We have some comedy and funny scenes, but the main focus is on matches (Haikyuu) and races (Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru).
Same studio, same sound director. Obviously all it takes is a quick look at the staff to know that it isn't the same general director or writer, but considering the fact that it looks like the same style of fluid athletic skinny-body animation I wouldn't be surprised if it was the same animation director. Basically, if you want to watch one, you're gonna want to watch the other. Sort of like Durarara!! and Baccano!
Vibes are really similar. Only difference is that the characters start off with and without experience in the sport in Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru and without in Ballroom e Youkoso. This is just a judgement from the first episode but other familiar pieces are bound to be noticeable in future episodes.
Both shows have a similar energy. and while Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru (KTF) is a sports anime and Boku no Hero Academia (BHA) is a superpower anime, they both are strong shounen anime. Characters that aren't where they want to be build themselves up.
The enjoyment level, the mindset of the characters, and the drive to succeed are common themes while both anime's do it completely separate ways. If you enjoyed the type of character development in KTF, you'll certainly enjoy the adventure and characters in BHA.
One is a sport anime set in college and the other is an action with school setting. But what make them similar is that they both give their side characters a time to shine on their own, and that gives an opportunity to the viewers to understand not only the main characters, but also the side characters point of view.
Nana and Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru (Kaze) are similar in their character development and their drama. The characters are given vivid, realistic backstories. And while Nana is about getting to the top of music/showbiz, Kaze is about being in the top 10 to win the biggest running competition in Japan.
Nana is a Josei (for women) and Kaze is more is more for boys. But it's refreshing how the characters are older. In Nana, they're out of school and Kaze is college. The drama is very heavy in both and the scenes are pretty realistic as well as the actions and motivations of the characters.
There is a lot of development that is done in both shows and they have such a wistful feeling at the end of the later episodes.  read more
Okay.. I know they're quite different in some ways.. but Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru reminds me of Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo a lot. Both of the shows transpire the life of students inside a single dormitory. Also, Mashiro Shiina and Kakeru Kurahara are both prodigy of a certain field, also they both have social issues. I think these shows portrait the importance of team work and the significance of unity between members of a certain group.
Yoichi Hiruma and Haiji Kiyose are the de facto leaders of their teams, determined to achieve their lofty goals of winning the Christmas Bowl and running the Hakone Ekiden Marathon, respectively. And they'll do whatever it takes to coerce their teammates to join them to their cause through (largely comical) psychological manipulation or plain old blackmail.
Both teams are made up of a ragtag group with a strong sense of camaraderie, whom no one would expect to make it past the first tournament.
Both are showcasing high school boys who do a specific sport (running and Japanese archery) and their struggles to form bonds with their teammates. They both have young coaches and teammates who have injured themselves previously. Some of the characters are similar too. Both animes are warm-hearted and slower paced than your usual sports anime, with no "extra special techniques" with fancy names and colorful moves.
Both are about sports and friendship. They have different stories behind the main characters and most of the character have high-spirited about sports. And how they are going to face the challenges too. A lot of emotional parts too...Hope you love it.
Both are a bit slow paced and about the struggles of making friends, figuring out yourself, and the forming bonds between teammates in sport. Both have young boys as protagonists and side characters and there is a focus on emotions.
BOTH have cool guys and full of friendship and a little bit of comedy (fun). They have different stories behind the main characters and most of the character have high-spirited about sports. And how they faced the challenges too. A lot of emotional parts too...you will love it by having goosebumps . After watching this, you might have the feeling of wanted to play or try the sport (if you know me ;)
They have a great balance of believable characterization and enthralling sports scenes. Themes in both of these shows include finding one's passion, being on a team, overcoming obstacles and following one's dreams.
