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.

Preliminary (4/13 eps)
I'll be honest.
I thought this anime would be like Tokyo Revengers, with its delinquent theme. But where Tokyo Revengers lost me on the first episode, Wind Breaker had me reading the manga up to the latest chapters. So when I finally watched it, I was not disappointed.
This was a very faithful adaptation to the source material.
The voice castings for the characters are truly amazing, as most of them happened to be some of my all-time favourite voice actors.
The opening is spectacular! I have it on my playlist as Natori did not disappoint with his music.
The visuals are what you would expect from CloverWorks. ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (4/13 eps)
Im not going to write something that hasnt been mentioned in the other reviews. The show is an extremely generic battle shounen much like Kaiju No8. But on the contrary Kaiju No8 has at least some logic because the characters fight monsters with special suits and weapons and is based on the good old formula of monster hunting. Here we have a school that has no principal, no teachers and no explanation for how it exists or what purpose it serves in education. There is no good drama either and the teenagers have extraordinary powers and also no parents! The comedy feels extremely forced ...

Preliminary (3/13 eps)
Another Repackaged Normal Highschool Action Shonen with the same formula, purely carried by the fight choreography.

Recommend for: Animation, Fight Choreography
Not Recommend for: Character, Plot, Comedy

Let's get the good thing out of the way first. First of all, the fight choreography is a MASTERPIECE in itself to bare witness, for a normal hand to hand combat. The fight scene is so good its remind me of old Chinese fights movie, where you can see every move and its impact clearly [10+/10]. Reinforced by it's very BEAUTIFUL animation, with all aspect of production quality very good, even for action Shonen standards [10/10].

However, that's where all the good ...
