When Fujiwara and Sakurai begin attending Honan, they want to join the stride club. Not having enough members, they force Yagami to join as well.
It looked good. It’s full of cute guys. I don’t get it though. Why, if it’s based on speed, do they do fancy jumps and such? Then in Episode 10 or 11 they decided to throw in that the three first years knew each other as kids, promised to go to the same school and join stride. While they all appear to have forgotten. Except for maybe one but he gave no sign he did.
Then it was all about trying to help each other with whatever issues they have and sharing emotions by running.
I wouldn’t recommend it exactly… but… it was something mindless to watch.
Sports anime, more about looking at and pairing attractive guys together than anything else.
