Will there be a second season of the series and when will it release?
Run with the Wind started on October 2, 2018, and the anime completed the first season after 23 episodes. The series has not yet been approved by Production I.G or the broadcasters for season 2. There is still hope for now, and we can say that a sequel can be created.
However, it is worth considering that the anime series took its story from the novel in 2006, as we mentioned before. The source material was a novel and they completely adapted the ending, so unfortunately it seems difficult to see another season. When we receive official information, we will share it with you.
