This show is supposed to be exclusive for subscribers of Daisuki's new membership, but for some reason I am able to watch it for free. Not sure if that was an error, but I took advantage of the situation.

Episode 1

I just can't help but to think of what might have been in Bakuon had Sakura didn't have to ride a bike up a hill to school. Anyway, that was a pretty cute way to start this show, and Ami's reaction to the price tag of those high-end bikes is really something. But she did find a bike she fell in love with that she could afford, so all is well for now. It's great to see that this show is happening in a college environment rather than a high school one for a change. While I have enjoyed the typical moe stuff so far, it hasn't exactly done anything to stand out at this point.

Unfortunately "this put Team Squeakz to sleep, its no Yowapeda" - ShawnHacaga

Hopefully next week makes better use of its sublime atmosphere, or does a 180 and uses a different tone? intensity? idk.

At least for the first episode as @Bakaneer noted, it is available without an actual subscription on Daisuki. I do have an account I log in with to give me HD but I don't pay (as their premium membership has "less ads", not no ads) and so far I've been able to watch the first episode no problem. Guess we'll find out next week if this is TAN's "first one is free" drug dealer model or a mistake or if we'll be able to watch it for free with ads for the season.

As for the show itself, the first episode seemed quite forced overall. I love a good girls on bikes anime and this one is off to a weak start. It's nice, slice of life with bikes but if Daisuki does make this subscriber only then I won't be crying about it or wondering what happens. I have a ton of other shows to watch on Saturdays though this one IS available very early so that's nice at least.

I'll be honest here, not a fan of the bike designs in this show yet.

Felt like I was watching Bakuon but with bikes rather than motorcycles. Out of all the main characters, I like Hinako the most so far.

Yay, guess it looks like I get to be the weird one again, because I absolutely loved this.

Based just on first episodes, so far this is my favorite show of the season.

As I was watching it I just thought to myself "Man, I'm so glad I'm an anime fan, and so glad I'm a fan of this genre". It felt so uplifting and fun. I myself don't cycle, but that never stopped me from feeling something similar from Bakuon. I think I honestly like this show more though because it doesn't feel so over the top. It feels quite grounded, and I like that.

I will find a way to watch this. Usually CR is good at picking up the stuff I like, but they really dropped the ball this season missing Magic of Stella and Long Riders. I don't know if it's because of this new Funimation deal or if Daisuki just stepped up their game or what. I hope it's not indicative of the future though.

It's more of a slice of life than a sports series but it's pretty alright. Turns out Daisuki exclusive only means that only premium members can watch it in 720p. I think I'll be watching this every sunday morning, don't need another show to watch on saturday lol.

I thought it was good but my hope is she graduates to bigger bike? If they base Long Riders on a fold up bike not very realistic, those bikes are for commuters or students taking the train then riding to school or work Short riders doesn't sound as Cool I guess?

Long Riders! EP 1 "A Small Miracle" 8

Not bad funny but looks like good friends will abound . For some reason whi is a Klutz wants a folding bike and her friend Aoi helps her to find one but prices are out of her budget at one store but finds a nice one at a better price elsewhere . Ani goes for a ride with Ami and is doing well until she runs out of energy ( no breakfast ) but two club cyclists help her by giving a paste snack meant for cycling . It is really sweet but perks Ami up and they go to a small dairy ith a store that makes / seels their own ice cream ( gelato ) which is really good but the duo leave before before they get their names and Ami then is in shoeck knowing she has a long way back Next day she is all tiif tired and collaspes when somebody offers the a snack tube it's the same as yesterday and Ami then meets the duo again Hinako / Yayoi

Ami VA the talented Nao Toyama

Two Va's were on Encouragement of Climb with another on Baukon so there is a good foundation to build on

Ami finds Pontakun!



Yayoi / Hinako



Aoi / AMI
