Yowamushi Pedal episode 37
Yet another horrible and tasteless episode. This one was actually worse because nothing actually happened this time. No idea where Sakamichi and his friends are (although they might appear during the next episode) and no idea what to expect of the second day.
It really bothers me that the other characters just let themselves get talked down like that by that creep Akira. Why not beat him off his bicycle? What’s he going to do? Fight back? I don’t think so. He probably got bullied as a kid. Its characters like that that turn into psychopaths that eventually kill dozens of people out of boredom.
It surprised me that Juichi and Sangaku let him take the mountain award that easily. What’s the point of racing if that creeps keeps getting his way? Yowamushi Pedal really lost its charm. First it became far too predictable and now it’s downright annoying because the worst character on the show keeps winning and breathing. At least one of those two things has to stop. I prefer the latter.
