Kaze ga tsuyoku fuiteiru manga read
風が強く吹いている [Kaze ga tsuyoku fuite iru] by Shion MiuraI have no interest in novels about sports, I knew nothing about running, and I had never even heard of the Hakone ekiden. I only picked up this book on a whim with a gut feeling that this author probably writes pretty good books since she wrote the afterword to my favorite novel.
I am a runner now all because of this book. I was so inspired that I immediately bought a pair of shoes and started running, and Ive stuck with it for about 9 months now. I never would have started if I hadnt read this book, and thinking about this book has kept me running when I havent felt the most inspired to get out and go.
This is a fantastic book that is more about perseverance and human relationships than it is about sports, and Miura has such a beautiful way of writing that I completely got swept away in the atmosphere she creates. Her characters feel extremely real, and the book even features a foreign character WHO SPEAKS LIKE A FOREIGN LEARNER OF JAPANESE ACTUALLY WOULD. And is treated with respect as a fully fleshed out character. And discrimination against him is even addressed in the book. This is insanely rare for Japanese writing, and as someone who speaks Japanese as a second language, I cant begin to say how happy I am to see a realistic portrayal of a non-Japanese speaker of Japanese instead of another CRAZY GAIJIN!!! stereotype who speaks like a moron or with some crazy dialect for no reason.
Miura does a fantastic job of portraying the complexities of peoples emotions and the bond between friends (read: bromance). This is a riveting, bittersweet book that I am sure I will read again to get inspired, and I am insanely grateful I gave it a chance.
