Wind Breaker episode 2 recap

Wind Breaker episode 2 began with Sakura visiting Kotoha’s shop, where he met his fellow Furin High peer Akihiko Nirei. The two acquainted themselves with each other, with Nirei curious as to why Sakura moved there without any ties. After learning of Sakura’s goal, Nirei told him not to strive for things he shouldn’t accomplish. Sakura tried to fight Nirei for his words here, but the latter departed, saying he had to do patrols around town before school started.

Kotoha then told Sakura he shouldn’t think he knew who Nirei was just by seeing him one time from one perspective. Sakura took this as Kotoha implying Nirei is good at fighting, departing shortly after. He was then praised by townspeople as he walked around until one of them asked for help, revealing Nirei in trouble. Sakura defeated the hooligans plaguing Nirei, leading him to reveal he came to Furin in the hopes of getting stronger like the Furin boy who saved him.

The two then headed to school, where the entrance ceremony had already finished and class lists had been posted, revealing the pair as classmates. Nirei then saw another name on the list that worried him, resulting in him pleading with Sakura to behave when they entered their classroom. The episode ended by introducing Suo Hayato, Tsugeura Taiga, Kiryu Mitsuki, and Kyotaru Sugishita, with Sakura seemingly set to fight Sugishita in the following installment.


Wind Breaker episode 3 what to expect (speculative)

With Furin High’s first semester fully underway, Wind Breaker episode 3 will likely begin with the apparent fight brewing between Sakura and Sugishita. However, it’s likely an upperclassman or teacher enters the room at this point, ending the fight. Speaking of teachers, fans should also soon discover if Furin High functions as a legitimate high school.

Assuming this is the case, episode 3 should quickly focus on Sakura’s schoolwork, likely showing him struggling in school, which would explain why he got into fighting and delinquency. Fans can also expect him and Nirei to begin meeting others in their class, growing their core friend group, which will likewise be the central characters to the first season’s events.
