風人物語
Fuujin Monogatari
A collection of episodes in the lives of people with the power to control the wind. In a small village in the Japanese countryside lives a clan of kazetsukai (風使い), wind handlers, people with the power to control the wind. Nao Ueshima is a middle school student and president of the school’s two-member digital camera club. Taiki, one of the kazetsukai, leaves behind the village and his brother’s widow, Yukio, to become a mathematics teacher at Nao’s school. Nao learns of Taiki’s power after he uses it to save her life. Nao and her friends travel to the kazetsukai village to learn for themselves the secret of how to control the wind.
Nao, an 8th grader, is one of the only two members of a Digital Camera Club, where she also serves as the manager. It's a mystery that she shoots nothing else but the skies and clouds. One day, she finds a cat on a rooftop where she usually shoots her camera. It's a cat that knows how to manipulate the flow of a wind. Shocked to find a strange animal, Nao loses her footing and falls off from the rooftop!
Miki is the other member of the club, and also Nao's best friend. Mr. Taiki is the teacher who's taught the cat how to manipulate the flow of a wind. Ryoko is a girl who has a huge crush on Mr. Taiki. And there's Jun, who helps Nao and Miki look for a cat that can fly. Then, there's Yukio, who is the widow of Mr. Taiki's deceased brother.
On the outskirts of this big city, a town off the "Wind Handlers," has been formed - and a mysterious Wind Festival is about to begin...
Nao and Miki are the sole members of their school's photography club, and have discovered the hidden secret of the wind. With the help of Mr. Taiki (a member of the ancient clan of the "wind-handlers" and one of their teachers) the duo soon pick up the secrets of controlling the wind and seeing it in its perfect beauty. With flying cats, lost tree squirrels and photography contests to boot, there's wind to be seen in any situation...
