Decent first episode, I laughed a couple of times. Very enjoyable, I'll definitely be keeping this in my queue.

I didn't love it, but I did like it. I'm going to stick with it for now.

Something I've noticed with a few shows this season is that the intensity of the MC is kind of off-putting--which I may or may not get over. Noticed it first with Ace of the Diamond, and also in Yowapeda. And when I stop to think of it, Wanna be the Strongest also (though it's likely going to be more than just MC intensity that causes me to drop that one).

Yet, Non Non Biyori may lose me by going too far in the other direction!

So, I didn't love Yowapeda, but I didn't hate it. There's still a good chance for the MC to grow on me, and if he does, then I'm likely to keep watching.

I agree the main character and some are pretty typical in most of the sports anime and there is always a wimpy character that is the actually the strongest is also typical .

But the twist of the character is the amusing element of this anime. The writting on this particular character , Onoda , is pretty funny. The seiyuu is a newbie but I think he is doing a good job so far.

Since I went ahead and read the manga , its actually pretty exciting but not as intense as Kuroko .This one also teaches cycling technique and about team cycling .

Of course not everyone is into cycling , so not everyone will check this one out.

There's just something about these sports anime series about sports that I don't care about where I'm willing to watch and enjoy them. Like I hate baseball but I watched Big Windup! the other day and absolutely loved it. And Karuta looks insanely boring but Chihayafuru is one of my favorite anime. And I hate swimming but Free! was....ok I didn't like Free!, but a lot of the technical swimming stuff was the only parts I enjoyed

I like it. It's the standard sports anime, even the female love-interest character that is super-knowledgeable about the sport (not judging just saying).

I really enjoyed it. I think part of what made this episode were the technical details there at the end. As someone who enjoys bicycling, I though it was great.

You might even say it raced by :D

I felt like I was watching Chihayafuru again.

I was originally going to ignore this series because I'm following so many others this season, but I decided to watch the first episode while I was waiting for some of the other anime to premiere. It's pretty good so far.

Really good second episode. Turns out thanks to his posture he was handicapping himself.

Agreed with everyone here. The latest episode and this series has been great and right now, I'm not even sure who to cheer anymore. I predict that the match might end in a draw but it could be anyone's game if Onoda keeps it up. I mean, just look @ this determined face:

I'm already enjoying the relationship between the two protagonists a lot. The anime stuff and their back and forth has been really funny.

It was pretty interesting. I would not say this is an anime for everyone but if you got nothing else to watch just take a look at this anime. It was just Ep 1 but i feel this anime can be good to watch.

It kinda makes me wish we had a bike club when i went to high school. It looks like a really fun club to start.
