The upcoming Wind Breaker 2024 anime debuted its second character trailer for the cast, revealing that Koki Uchiyama will voice Kyotaro Sugishita. Uchiyama ranked fifth in Anime Corner’s Winter 2023 Seiyuu Rankings and has voiced many leading characters on iconic shows. My Hero Academia’s Tomura Shigaraki, Blue Lock’s Rin Itoshi, Yuri on Ice‘s Yuri, Horimiya‘s Miyamura, Soul Eater‘s Soul Eater Evans, and Nisekoi‘s Raku Ichijo are just some of the roles to his name. Check out the new character trailer below:
The news was announced via Wind Breaker‘s official X (formerly Twitter) and each day will debut further characters and the cast members voicing them in stylish trailers. Previously, the protagonist Haruka Sakura was revealed to be voiced by Yuma Uchida (Reo, Blue Lock).
Satoru Nii’s Wind Breaker debuted in Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket in 2021 and has been collected into 13 volumes as of August 2023. The manga was among AnimeJapan 2022‘s most desired works to get an anime adaptation. While further animation on the cast and staff is unavailable since the anime was announced with a teaser visual in March, a ‘special program‘ revealing more information is due on October 22. Studio CloverWorks will animate the series. Print copies of Wind Breaker by the North American licensor of the manga, Kodansha USA, are also expected this fall.
Kodansha USA describes the manga:
Haruka Sakura wants nothing to do with weaklings—he’s only interested in the strongest of the strong. He’s from Fuurin High School, a school of near-dropout degenerates known only for their brawling strength. And in a town known for its territorial disputes, Haruka’s got only one goal—become the hero his town deserves.
