Hi there! I’ve been really enjoying watching the anime 風が強く吹いている (Run with the Wind), especially as it has one of my current favourite anime soundtrack composers and character designers working on it.
At the moment, I generally try to read books which have film/anime adaptations so I can focus on what’s happening on the page rather than the overall plot, and I decided that it’s an excellent idea at my level to attempt a 670-page book (ahem).
So I was wondering, in the spirit of the story, if anyone else is interested in reading 風が強く吹いている? This would be in the style of the 君の膵臓を食べたい (I Want to Eat Your Pancreas) and Sword Art Online book discussions, so everyone can read at their own pace and there would be no set deadlines.
(I should note that I still have 300 pages to go in a different book, so I won’t be starting it myself for a while yet. For now I’d just like to see if anyone else is interested!)
Plot Summary from Crunchyroll
One chilly March day, Kansei University fourth-year Kiyose Haiji (Haiji) encounters Kurahara Kakeru (Kakeru) running uncommonly fast through the streets at night and forces him into living at the Chikusei-so (AKA Aotake). Haiji has a dream and ambition. He became discouraged after suffering an injury in high school, but he wants to run again. He wants to participate in the [relay race] Hakone Ekiden and show off the running ability he’s been pursuing. He has only one year left to turn that dream and ambition into reality.
The first few pages of the prologue are available to view on the publisher’s website.
