I just saw Episode 1 and the first thing I thought was Bakuon

and like Bakuon , we have cycle companies ie Cannondale as sponsors with their product placement and the almost not so pinup poster shots

I will watch this here and there and see how it goes. I really don't like the main character so far.
Anyway, I just tried watching Long Riders...their MC is annoying too and those girls are college students

MC girl is unbelievably stupid when it comes to bike riding but I generally love a girls on bikes anime so I will give it a bit more of a chance.

Ueda Reina being in Bakuon as well makes it a bit interesting, as do some of the other seiyuu but so far it seems like it won't be one to remember.

Yea, there is some uptick on cycling anime this season some reason. CR announced a male demographic show yesterday, now on. And it's winter, of course...


An NHK Conspiracy to get young (Japanese) out on bicycles? I think so....

Ep 1

It was a decent premiere. Maiharu is definitely a bit slow, but Tomoe is such a nice girl to offer to help her learn to ride her bike. I can see the characters growing on me with time, but I'm mostly curious about the direction the show is going to take. Anybody know if it ends up being a sort of competitive cycling show like Yowamushi, or cute girls on bikes like Bakuon?

For the first third of the show, I was wondering what age group this was targeting -- high school students?
The VA for the principal sounds like Fumio from Food Wars.

Episode 2

So Hiromi goes for a ride around Kamakura, and she gets lost along the way trying to get to the shrine. While she does find her way, she gets there the hard way and ends up having to be escorted back by those boys sent by the bakery worker. So after introducing Hiromi the last time around, Hiromi is meeting some friends that she'll be attending school with. That was better than the first episode as those kids sure are getting into bikes while there's also the scenery as well.

Episode 2

This episode was interesting as we meet a lot of characters. Not only do we meet two future members of the cycling club but we also met a old lady and a girl who turn out to be Tomoe's grandma and little sister. Not to forget we also met Shiki sensei's sister and some guy's that helped find Hiromi when she got lost. Alright that's four members down now we need the last one which will be introduce next week.

This episode was pretty much pure meh. Just boring stuff and uninteresting characters. Plus the quality of the art really is just all over the place, and this is only episode 2. Usually that doesn't happen until later on. Still not totally offensive but definitely not living up to what it could be.

Its wasn't too bad animation wise, some cg here and there.

The story moved on to introduce the new characters, although they are not that interesting , a safe type of episode but it is developing the story . Talked abit more about cycling in city streets almost like an instructional video.

I still think Bakoun was written better.

I thought it was ok.

Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club EP 1 “Entrance
Ceremony!”


Animation is very good

OP song / "Jitensha ni Hana wa Mau" (Flower Dances With Bike) by AOP

Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club EP 2 "Go Explore Kamakura!"

Another Alpaca ( riders name ) like Long Riders in fact this is basically another version ( anime ) of road bikes .

Episode 3

Hiromi and Tomoe are looking for a club to join, and they go try out for one of the athletic clubs, but things just don't work out. So they go meet Fuyune's grandmother and that got the girls the idea to bring back the cycling club that the school once had as with the country being motorized that people lost interest in bikes. That was rather nostalgic there seeing that while bikes have been replaced as a means of travel, the sensation just doesn't feel the same, so here comes the cycling club.

Easily the strongest episode of the show so far though that's not saying too much given how early we still are. The stuff with Fuyune's sister seems like it will give the show a little more emotional punch than the feelgood cheesecake of Bakuon. A nice pleasant way to spend 20 minutes but still nothing groundbreaking or likely all that memorable in the long run.

I'm liking it so far in terms of plot. It's a bit cliché, but otherwise I like it. The art style and animation could be better, though. And I definitely agree the third episode is the strongest so far.
