Yowamushi Pedal episode 38
What a disappointing ending. I knew that they were going to end this season with a cliff-hanger in order to lure people in when the second season starts in October. A three month break for Yowamushi Pedal isn’t such a bad thing.
I decided that I would read up on people’s reactions after they saw this episode. Not because I wanted them to help me get my own opinion. Hell no. I couldn’t possibly care any less about what people think of the things I watch. I can make up my own damn mind. I was just curious how they saw this episode. I must say that I was unpleasantly surprised. I saw people going completely nuts over this episode, saying that it was amazing, thrilling and even inspiring. My god… Is the world about to end? There are actually people on this planet that find this incredibly predictable episode amazing, thrilling and/or inspiring? Unbelievable…
Anyway, I started watching this episode and I asked myself why. Why bother watching this episode when you know what’s going to happen? Hakone was obviously going to recover since you can’t beat down an all-ace team just by winning a sprinting award. It takes more than that. The fact that Sohoku showed up in order to disrupt Akira’s plan was also painfully obvious. I have no idea why they waited that long to show up. They could’ve popped up during last week’s episode and ended this season with a winner for day two. Season two could’ve been about day three. But no… A cliff-hanger is all we get. Oh well, at least I’m done with all the Yowamushi Pedal reviews.
