Yowamushi Pedal episode 26
Hmm… Yeah… Why was this episode even created? I mean… What purpose does it serve? It doesn’t add anything, it doesn’t tell us anything and it certainly wasn’t exciting. Calling it a mediocre episode would be the most generous thing you could do.
Had this been episode twenty-five point five, okay… But no! It was an actual episode where the characters continued their b*tching about the last couple of episodes. What was the point? We know why that gay-looking guy lost. No point in explaining that he lost because he chose to dodge instead of rushing forward. He chose safety over victory, that’s all there is to it. We already knew that.
The second half, for what it’s worth at this point, was a lot better because of Sakamichi’s unfortunate accident. So what if he fell of his bicycle? Isn’t that his speciality? He falls for some reason and then gets back up again. Just watch, he’ll get back up, finds the motivation to get back in the game and amazes us by catching up again.
