Not an otaku, but just lingering passions

Yowamushi pedal : ride to the top! (literally)

Love hime princess!

Ahh yes, the actual concept in yowamushi pedal that made me a big fan of this series. Love hime! Embarrassing as it may be if you were at some point associating yourself as an (weebo) anime otaku of some sort singing along to the tunes of “Hime hime, hime, suki suiki daisuki, hime…” Will make you go fuwa fuwa (fuck you if you don’t know what fuwa fuwa means, for the unaware, is basically describing a soft fluffy feeling and fuck you nonetheless).

Manly man singing hime hime in ofuro certainly adds a lot of comedy gold into it (if you can comprehend the situation). But hime aside, we are now almost at the end of the National finals and about 3,700 m (12,000+ ft) to the end point which is on a at least 20% incline climb. One thing i really dislike about sports anime is how they can drag a real-life time frame of say 5 seconds into basically a 20 minute long anime. Yes every single sports anime is guilty of this but somehow it doesn’t feel too overused in yowamushi, in fact it felt like it needs that over the top time dilation factor to tell the story.


If you have been watching anime long enough, still image like the one above tells you something right? It implies that the guy on the left (pink/purple top) is gonna fucking lose while the guy on the right (yellow pants) is gonna crush his opponent. But somehow, i wouldn’t say it is only restricted to yowamushi (there’s only an bias in observation since this is the only sports anime that i am watching at the moment), this triumph still has been overly used. In fact, this still does not mean any shit at all. It meant for that second, a minor victory is achieved and the story needs more pumping and adrenaline because it lacks adrenaline somehow in this cycling race. Before you go to a conclusion that i hate this show, stop right there, if you haven’t watch it before, fuck you for doing that. I highly, HIGHLY, i can’t stress enough, HIGHLY recommend you to start watching it. Crunchyroll has them from the first season , go freaking watch it. And also watch all the after-show short clips. A lot of easter egg goodies. The video i posted above, is one of them and so is the one coming up.

Even if sports anime isn’t your cup of tea, I can bet if you actually gave this a chance, you will fall in love with it. If not for the sports itself, it will be for love hime. Excuse me while i wait for the last 4 episodes in my cycling jersey.
