The anime’s title, Wind Breaker, provides an indication as to the plot we might anticipate. Who else except Haruka Sakura is capable of surpassing the wind in terms of speed, power, and agility?
Hey, I’m sorry, it appears you know nothing about Wind Breaker. We’ve thought of everything, so let’s begin immediately.
Wind Breaker Release Date
Before we delve into the world of Wind Breaker, let us warn you that Wind Breaker manga is not to be confused with Wind Breaker manhwa, which is based on Yoo Minwoo and his biking journey. Although Wind Breaker manhwa would have made a great anime, we believe a K-Drama adaptation would have been more appropriate.
The Wind Breaker manga by Satoru Ni is serialized in Kodansha Magazine and remains unfinished as of January 2023; nonetheless, eight tankobon volumes have been collected. Suddenly comes the news you’ve been anticipating. Indeed, we’re discussing the release date! It has finally been given the go-ahead for an anime adaptation by Cloverworks, with a Winter 2023 release date anticipated.
While no information regarding the release date or month has been disclosed, we anticipate that the firm will announce it in the fall of 2023. We almost forgot to mention that Aniplex has recently created the Wind Breaker TV series’ official website and released a visual teaser.

Wind Breaker Plot & Expectations
Now that you are aware of the film’s release date, we will explain the plot of Wind Breaker. The plot focuses on a high school student named Haruka Sakura who is enamored with physically powerful individuals and fist fights.
He enrolled in Furin High School, which is a school of degenerates famed for their brawling strength and muscles, which they use to protect their town from criminals (feels a bit cliché?) Haruka doesn’t care about justice or being a hero; he just wants to fight and become the strongest, similar to Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z or Genos from One Punch Man.
We are aware that you cannot read or access the manga anywhere, as the translated chapters have not yet been posted. Manga is tough to decipher without Japanese language skills.
Wind Breaker Cast
We anticipate a couple of the voice actors/actresses to be a part of the project in the near future, while the cast has not yet been confirmed.

Wind Breaker Manga – Short Review
Are you familiar with the Furyo manga or genre? The story of Furyo focuses largely on juvenile criminality in high schools and colleges. Due to the success of Tokyo Revenge, Furyo has been gaining popularity and has inspired a new modern manga titled Wind Breaker.
The manga resembles a shortened version of Tokyo’s vengeance-seekers and exudes similar inspiration and character designs. In this manga, you won’t find the same old friendship speeches, and it has a more realistic tone. The character designs are vibrant and well-executed, but the dialogues are dull and monotonous.
I would say, in a few words, that it is merely another good Furyo manga that you may read in your spare time.
