Yowamushi Pedal episode 09
Is it safe to me to say that I was pretty much right about everything during my last Yowamushi Pedal post? This part was so obvious that it was almost funny. It’s almost as though they actually “stole” the ending from Over Drive.
So I was right, Sakamichi managed to peddle his skinny ass up that mountain and actually reached the top before Shunsuke. It may not have been a real race, but to think that I was completely right about pretty much everything… You will just have to believe me when I tell you that I haven’t read the manga at all. It’s just that I noticed a lot of similarities between these past few episode and the ending in Over Drive. Both were delightful to watch and I really enjoyed this week’s episode, although I still believe that they need to cut back on worshipping one particular character.
Who is Shunsuke anyway? That character strikes me as a textbook control freak. He always seems so obsessed with winning that nothing else really matters. He almost sacrificed his victory in order to race Sakamichi for the mountain title. I understand that all of those characters want to win, but Shunsuke really seems obsessed.
It didn’t really surprise me that Shunsuke defeated Shoukichi. He really had a hard time climbing that mountain, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he used up a lot of energy to overcome that obstacle. I’m guessing next week’s episode is going to be all about training. I’m actually looking forward to seeing what they’re going to do.
