Plot Summary


The story revolves around high school girls who discover the appeal of motorcycles. Sakura Hane is a high school student who looks a little bit like an airhead. On the way to her all-female high school one day, she is worn-out climbing a hilly road with a bicycle, but she sees a girl named Onsa Amano who is riding a motorcycle. Sakura immediately becomes interested in motorcycles, and she and Onsa join the motorcycle club at the school. Then, Sakura sets out to get her license.

You know. I never heard about it before. I never read the manga. But i do ride and really love motorcycles so i'm really curious how they did this show. So yeah. I'll start watching it in an hour from now and hope it's good But seeing as it's TMS who also made one of my favorite anime ever (D.Gray-man) i have some good hope.

Let's begin the moecycling.

Episode 1

Pedaling uphill is quite a challenge for Hane, but there's a solution to that with motorcycles. After Hane went along for a ride, she decides that she wants to motorbike, but she'll need a license, which is not easy to do. She eventually learns the way, and she meets up with Rin, who is also going to the same school. And they go searching for a new bike where Rin is all about Suzuki bikes and twisting JFK's words, all bikes are created equals except for Suzukis. That was pretty cute, and certainly Hane reminds me so much of K-On's Yui getting into the activity for the first time ever, yet already showing aptitude and passion. Moving forward, this show should be a whole lot of fun.

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 indeed the most humorous parts of the first episode imo. Compared to the OVA, this had less fan service but still advertise Rin as the IT girl. I look forward to seeing other types of bikes and perhaps actual competition as well.

I...don't know what to make of this? Is the series about bikes or the girls obsessing about the bikes?

Probably the latter. Not sure if I want to keep up.

Since I haven't seen the OVA, I can't compare it to the first episode.

That said, I'll watch the first couple of episodes before deciding. So far though, I thought it was pretty funny, especially the fighting over the different brands of bikes.

I thought it was hilarious and adorable. I love all the bright colors and the *ahem* enthusiasm of the girls.

It's just another cute girls doing cute things show, but with bikes.

As long as it stays sweet and funny it will be a good watch.

Bakuon!! OVA

The Girls Ride 100 miles just for Coffee (Hundred Mile Blend )

I am so far behind I am quoting the EP


While taking a drive on the highway to try a "100-mile blend" of coffee, the girls stop by a service area, where they find cans of coffee with motorbike figurines included. Rin manages to obtain a figure of her Katana, only for it to get run over. Later on, everyone's bikes simultaneously break down due to an alleged curse, but they are soon aided by Raimu. Onsa becomes upset when she discovers the café serving the blend has been shut down, but Hane cheers her up with a can of coffee she had saved during their 100-mile journey. Afterwards, the girls enjoy a hot spring before returning to buy Rin a new figurine.

A favorite character when the anime comes out

Raimu Kawasaki

Hane's upperclassman who always wears a helmet and never talks, similar to The Stig. ( TOP GEAR ) She rides a Kawasaki ZX-12R

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bakuon!!#Characters

The Stig

Also writes notes like Celty





Raimu is just cool / she is a great rider and has sixth sense!

In Action / BTW she leaves her Senpai Saruyama-sensei to go where the other girls are!

She picks up the parts / gas for the bikes and they didnt tell her! / And she buries the broken figurine to break the curse! / The girls are shocked when she comes round the corner! ( Her boots are on Fire!)

I think Baita is, as they say, "best girl" of the first episode, because she's the only one in the entire episode to point out that you need to STEP INTO THE BIKE to lift it.

Unsure about this. Must admit I find that one girl annoying. I don't mind characters being passionate about something, but she gives off an obsessive vibe to me. So chances are she might drive me away.

Episode 1: Club Registration

I like this. Plus I feel like if you are a motorcycle enthusiast this might entertain you. But if you can't stand cute girls doing cute things then it might be hard for you to get through this.

Yup, best girl is definitely that Honda Su-Four. When she started talking I lost my shit. XD She was talking like she's a prostitute who's been used by many men, but gives good life advice.

The banter between which brands are better or shitting on another brand, I found to be entertaining. Also the MC isn't too bad, she has a cute voice I can dig.

Wonder if we will be left in the dark for the whole season and never see Lime-Senpai's face. That'd be hilarious. Looking forward to the next one.

I'm a big fan of Bakuon!!, but I was left a little short with the first episode. It kinda rushed through the early chapters, and I don't get why Crunchy is calling Raimu Lime instead.

I love bikes and am thinking of trying motorcycles in the future, so I'm up for this. The girls are fairly fun. Hane is a little weird though. She's starting high school and it seems that this is her first encounter with a motorcycle. Doesn't know what a license is too...

Onsa's hair is a beautiful mess.

I think Raimu is a joke name about the engrish pronunciation of Lime, which is the shade of green Kawasaki is known for.

I'm sitting on the fence with this one. I'm not a big motorcycle fan (esp after getting 2nd/3rd degree burns from the exhaust pipe of my cousin's) and there's something slightly off with the dialogue delivery I can't put my finger on. But I'm intrigued enough to give it the three episode test. Though I hope Stig-chan takes off that helmet soon. It's kinda annoying given it's done because she's obviously extremely shy.
