Run with the wind and Haikyuu are both about a bunch of boys in a sports team, each with their own quirks and stories. The two are made by the same studio and have similar animation and visual styles which are good for action. The two have good sports and personal arcs for the characters and could also be classified as "fujoshi-bait" by some. If you like one, you'll most likely enjoy the other.
If you liked Haikyu!! or Run with the Wind, you'd like the other because both of them main characters are so similar. Graphic and animations are analogue and both Hinata and Haiji are trying to follow their own dream.
I can agree in both of them. I watched both of these shows and the main characters are so freaking similar
SPORTS ANIMES ARE LIFE no seriously I love Haikyuu, and nothing (sports anime wise) can compare with it, but run with the wind was pretty good.
both of these series have characters that strive to meet their goals while helping one another out along the way. there is a lot of character development as well. the plots are pretty similar (even though they're about two totally different sports) and both of these animes actually make you want to join a sports team. XD
