Yowamushi Pedal episode 13
I’m going to have to get used to the new schedule again. Yowamushi Pedal was released a day later. I’m going to have to see whether this was a onetime thing or if it’s airing a day later from now on. Good thing the new shows usually appear after the holidays.
So their training camp is still underway. Everyone is doing their best to keep up with the schedule in order to complete the thousand kilometres by the end of their training camp. Nothing’s easy when their bicycles have been sabotaged. I’m glad to see that the spotlight is slowly turning away from Sakamichi. Everyone has his moments and the spotlight should be shared instead of shining down upon the same character. It’s only a matter of time before something happens and the spotlight once again shines down on Sakamichi, which is why I found this episode quite enjoyable.
I also liked the parts were we met some of the schools that Sakamichi and his friends will be riding against. Some of those guys were quite disturbing… There was a psychopath with dead eyes that likes to play dictator, a couple of gay twins, some hairy guy that claims his team is full of aces and, of course, that bicycle nut that loves to climb mountains, but we already met him.
I’m actually quite looking forward to the next episode. That guy is coming over to challenge Yuusuke after he heard from his teammate that he has a weird climbing style. I’m really interested in seeing that match, I really am. Of course, I’m still more interested in seeing Shingo’s abilities. Your attention automatically goes to him sometimes.
