Onoda Sakamichi, a first-year student of Sohoku Highschool in Chiba, is a bit weak and loves anime. He was going to join the anime research club when he joined high school, but after his encounter with Imaizumi Shunsuke, a boy well-renowned in the middle school cycling world, and Naruko Shoukichi, a boy who won all the awards in Kansai`s cycling competition, he makes the decision to join the competitive cycling club.
Hard training and other incidents wait for him in the Competitive Cycling Club, but unique seniors like Kinjou, Tadokoro, Makishima, and many others support him as overcomes the many trials. Amidst those days of hard work, Sakamichi`s sleeping talent as a road racer begins to awaken!
When Jeremy first told me that he is watching a sports anime associated with cycling, me and him talked a lot about this. Jeremy is not a biker nor a cyclist but don’t you know that we talked about it like he already rode a bike because he understand and learn more about the basics, fundamentals and all the cycling lingo by merely watching this anime.
Having said that, I immediately watched it and it was really a good anime to watch for because it has the drama, fun and of course the thrill of riding a bike. On this anime, it also shows the history of cycling down to the advance stage of riding a road bike. On this anime, I learned the differences in technique in sprint, climb and endurance.
On this anime, it tells the character’s strengths, weaknesses and it’s special attack move and on each episode it highlights all the characters starting the with protagonists down to supporting cast to their enemies or competitors. The story is based on Tour de France though the tournament level is for high school students which is very common on every sports anime just like Slam Dunk and Koruku No Basket.
What are you waiting for? Watch it now or forever hold your peace. Haha!
