Welcome to Anime of the week number 22. Running, running and also running. Oh wait, I think I forgot something..oh, running! You guessed it, it’s Prince of Stride!
Season 1 ~ Jan 5, 2016 to Mar 22, 2016 (Winter 2016)
“Stride”—an extreme sport that combines parkour, free running, relay, and sprinting—is what made first year high school student Nana Sakurai enroll in Honan Academy, after being captivated by the school’s stride team. Sharing the mutual intention of joining the team is fellow first year and stride maniac, Takeru Fujiwara, and together they request to join. Much to their dismay, however, the stride club is no longer active due to lack of members, and they are now operating under the shogi club.
In order to revive the stride club, Nana and Takeru recruit first year Riku Yagami—a fast runner who is interested in almost every sport. With this new team, the club now aims high at a new goal: to win the prestigious End of Summer competition, and bring the Honan stride team back to their prime.
This anime made me feel like joining the stride club on my school if it ever had one. Guess what, [spoiler]it didn’t[/spoiler]. I even felt like having a jog the day I finished this. It also had an amazing soundtrack.
The last race was pretty meh but the overall anime was still pretty good!
