Kaze no Yō ni (風のように?) or Like the Wind is a one-shot manga by Tetsuya Chiba published in Shojo Friend in 1969. In early 2016, Chiba began a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for a film adaptation.[1] In March it met its goal of 2 million yen.[2]

Plot[edit]

The manga takes place in a rural town in Japan. It focuses on Sanpei, a beekeeper and lone survivor of an accident that killed his entire family. While traveling alone, he meets a girl named Chiyo, who Sanpei helps after she is stung by a bee. Having nowhere else to go, he tries to begin a new life in her town. Sanpei begins to tend to an abandoned planting spot, but suddenly disappears afterwards. Soon the town begins to bloom with the flowers he planted, and Chiyo waits for Sanpei to return.
