With Bakuon!! getting an anime too, looks like a lot of otaku will be riding bikes soon...
The anime character design is really close to the original manga! I'm expecting a lot from this series.
YowaPeda seriously made me want a road racer... Now this anime is coming... Why am I such a fangirl?!
A lot of cyclists ride around at night without their lights on or don't signal when they're turning, so I hope this anime will promote road safety!
MORE girls on bikes?!
It's a dream come true for you, right? Well I for one am looking forward to this!
