Yowamushi Pedal episode 21
I am tired, hungry, annoyed and kind of short on time. It’s a good thing that this episode wasn’t as complicated as I had thought, because I am going to keep this post short and simple. My bad if I forget to tackle a few of the important stuff, but hey, I write what I want to write.
Their racing competition seems to have begun. People were giving it their all and things seemed to be progressing smoothly. I can even remember how much I wanted to see Shingo race, merely so that I knew what he was capable of. I got a good impression during this episode. Long story short: I am not impressed whatsoever. Not at all. I thought his racing would come close to the supernatural, but no…
What happened? Shingo got hurt badly and Juichi, his opponent, was feeling bad. I wouldn’t have it. It’s survival of the fittest in every competition. Is it legal? Do it. Just as long as long as it brings you a step close to victory. It’ll be quite amusing to see how Souhoku will function now that the team captain is wounded.
Quick edit: I realized, after watching the episode again (because something wasn’t quite right), that the competition hadn’t started yet. I was watching some kind of video tape-induced flashback of Shingo’s past. What a stupid and utterly confusing episode!
