Yowamushi Pedal episode 07
Yep… Sakamichi is going to get worshiped for the rest of the show. Maybe I should play along? I’ll order myself a life-size Sakamichi made out of cardboard and worship it before I go to work and before I go to bed. At least I would have a valid reason to cry myself to sleep every night.
So Sakamichi finally obtained a racing bike. He certainly did not wait around to ask questions. He just hopped on that bike and starting cycling like his life depended on it. He soon passed three of his ‘friends’ and, although he is eight minutes behind Shoukichi and Shunsuke, I’m pretty sure he’s going to follow Shingo’s advice to the letter. He started peddling faster even though he knew full well that he wouldn’t finish the race if he did. He just wants to catch up with those two and show them what he is capable of when he, too, has a racing bike under him. I dare say it’s poetic.
The match between Shunsuke and Shoukichi is pretty boring. It’s obvious that Shoukichi is bad when it comes to climbing, even though Shunsuke, an all-rounder, doesn’t have that difficulty. It’s quite obvious that Shoukichi is going to lag behind soon. You don’t need to have psychic abilities to be able to see that one coming.
On a similar note; Sakamichi is going to win. He’s probably not going to win the race, but I know for a face that there’s such a thing as a “king of the mountain” award. I saw it on Over Drive so it must be true. I think that Sakamichi, just like the main character from Over Drive, is going to win the climb but lose the race by not being able to finish. I’m almost a hundred percent sure of that.
