Yowamushi Pedal episode 05
Yeah… I’m guessing that I’ll have to accept that pretty much all of the characters are going to focus on Sakamichi during each and every episode, telling themselves and others how interesting and amazing he is. Don’t think a minor flaw like that could ruin my fun though.
Episodes like this where the characters enjoy themselves and hang out aren’t all that bad. Things always become funny when Sakamichi is involved. He really is a straightforward little runt, isn’t he? Normal people (like me) wouldn’t go around telling other people about how much they love anime or whatnot. Sakamichi for president!
I have to say that I’m ever so slightly disappointed by how Sakamichi joined the bicycle club. Shoukichi lured Sakamichi out to watch three of the club seniors race together, which piqued his interest in bicycles even more. The problem with this is that he gave up on his desire to start an anime club a bit too easily, I think.
Let’s just skip past the fact that people are still keeping their eyes glued to him. Sakamichi managed to steal the show once again by demonstrating that he had perfect balance. Most people can’t use rollers until they are used to them, but that little runt did it in one go. He’s amazing. He’s super! He’s so freakishly interesting!! Shoot me.
All joking aside; I’m truly looking forward to the next episode. Episodes where the characters were racing is what I loved to see most in Over Drive. I’m pretty sure that that’s going to be pretty much the same with Yowamushi Pedal, especially since Sakamichi has to make do with that mommy bike while the others have their own racing bikes.
