Episode 1:

Eh it was okay. I thought it was somewhat funny mostly because of the girls' interactions but also the part about the bikes.

The JFK words were the most humorous parts of the first episode imo. Compared to the OVA, this had less fan service I look forward to seeing other types of bikes and perhaps actual competition as well. I think it's going to be a fun show every Monday to watch~

When the bike started talking to Hane I lost it, especially it trying to teach her how to treat a man

I just watched the 1st episode. I liked it!

The visuals aren't quite as pretty or sleek as I had hoped, but they're good enough. And the show's sense of humor is honestly better than I expected. I chuckled a few times during the episode, and I laughed very loudly at the JFK bit.

The core cast seems to have a good mix of personalities, and also a decent variety in character designs. Hane is precisely the sort of character I like to see in the lead role of a "cute girls doing cute things" show.

I think Episode 1 hit a good balance between lighthearted fun and treating the subject matter seriously. I don't know motorcycles quite well enough to fully get some of the jokes, but they do remind me of Chevy vs. Ford vs. Dodge debates in the world of trucks. And I am aware of Honda's reputation in the world of cars, so it's interesting to see that it has a similar reputation in the world of motorcycles.


On the whole, good first episode. I'm looking forward to more.

Hmmm, that was alright. Kind of a 6/10 first episode.

Certainly some good laughs. Like how Hane literally has a psychic connection with the training bike .

Though can't say the voice cast and the jokes fully worked for me.

Still, not a bad start.

Putting the boot into Ducati, early and often. I approve.

This is a series that only bikers will love. Other folks might get some amusement out of it.

The idea didn't do much for me. But I know just enough about bikes to get the jokes. A friend of mine used to have an apartment in which the living room was entirely occupied by his bike and all the tools he used to constantly repair it.

I thought Ueda Reina (Naru in Hanayamata, Mikan in Actually I am..., Elena in World Break) was good as the lead. And Nishimura Junji directed my favorite show, Simoun, as well as True Tears, and another show I love (and others hate), Glasslip. So I expect him to make reasonable decisions, within his budget.

The amazing talking bike was played by...Inoue Kikuko (Belldandy in Oh My Goddess, Mizuho in Onegai Teacher/Twins, Grace O'Connor in Macross Frontier, etc., etc.).

It really is K-on with bikes. Down to the airheaded MC with a capable little sister.

I found it pretty funny. In fairness to the show, relative to expectations, I'll say "very" funny.

I have to wonder how much pre-knowledge on bikes is involved here. I'm kind of expect if you either have zero knowledge or zero interest, the show's jokes will be far less effective. If not tone deaf.

@Anh

I know, it's perfect!

I found it to be pretty good!! as the sport anime fan I am, I see it has all the potential to get really real good later on if the show includes any kind of tournament arc later on. A keeper for now.

Heh. Hane is a baka all right.

Also, this all goes over my head. But it's cute.

It was okay in comedy, I guess. A bit forced solved by the cosmic solution of everyone being idiots, but whatever.
And motorcycles are god loud and therefor I dislike them in general.
Stupid talking motorcycles just no...

Everything carried over from the manga, from the humor involving bikes, to the Ducati-shaming, to Suzunoki's TWO LITER ENGINES. I am shocked about JFK and Kikuko Inoue ending up voicing the tutorial bike. That said, the VA for Hane really sounds like K-ON!'s Yui.

Won't be surprised if the humor isn't appreciated by some, but it kinda works for me, despite the fact that motorbikes aren't my choice of transportation.

Honda dominates Isle of Man TT records, mainly the Honda CBR1000RR. The masked biker reminds me of Sting from Top Gears and i like how Hane uses her breast as her holding point (i can't tell because she does it on purpose or doesn't know about riding bikes, but still funny).

As a motorcycle rider and lover I was waiting for this, yes it may be a K-On version motorcycle show but I'll take it. I like the stabs at Suzuki fan boyism also. I'm already expecting this show to be pretty bleh on everything expect the motorcycle stuff like bike details and riding techniques.

Being a show about a school club dedicated to bikes it would normal to expect them to participate into races and some kind of championship later on. Change bikes for whatever you want and that's your typical anime sport show premise right there.

It being K-On with bikes, I don't think the sports aspects are going to show up much, if at all.
