Yowamushi Pedal episode 10

The high level of predictability in Yowamushi Pedal is certainly disappointing. I might as well write next week’s post right away, too, since I probably already know what’s going to happen. It’s probably just going to be another training episode where Sakamichi gets worshipped some more and the others get worked to the bone to gauge their skills.

Yes, his seniors acknowledged his abilities and his spirit, which is more than can be said for his cocky ‘friend’ that came in third, but in the end he won nothing since he didn’t finish the race. That all being said, he was still admired and worshipped even though he won literally nothing. I honestly just don’t get that. Stop focussing on one character, no matter how awesome that character may be, and focus a little bit on the other characters as well. I wouldn’t mind knowing more about that team captain of theirs.

He’s not entirely unlike Sakamichi. They are both socially awkward and have no idea what to do in order to converse with people. Sakamichi will be fine as long as it’s about anime or manga, but I think Yuusuke is too far gone…

Am I excited about the next episode? Not really. I already know what’s going to happen. Sakamichi will race against Yuusuke and lose, Shoukichi will race against Jin and probably lose as well, and Shunsuke will race against Shingo and, surprise, lose. The others just aren’t important enough to mention at this point. You’ll see…
