This looks like every other sports anime. I mean really. Is this Yowamushi Pedal with girls? I think I’m gunna pass on this one.

This is WAY better than Yowapeda or Prince of Stride Alternative. You know why? Girls. Cute Girls. Cute Girls on bikes. Cute girls on bikes sweating profusely.

I’m surprised you know how to even use that word Bee-kun. This legit looks like Bakuon!! but on bikes instead of Motorcycles.

No need to hate on it Bombon and Honey-chan. Legendary Seiyuu like Hiromi Igarashi and Nao Touyama are in this!

Synopsis

Ami Kurata is terrible at any form of sports. One day though, she sees a collapsible bike outside of a station and falls in love with it immediately. In a moment of cuteness, and without trying it out, she rushes to the bank and immediately drains her entire savings account. Where does she head next, but naturally to a bike shop! However… she doesn’t like to exercise! How is this now her fate? Check her out brimming to the top with charm along with this light and leisurely biking show!

Three Episode Impression

The love of biking has been brought back into anime form in Long Riders, an anime that focuses on a girl who discovers what it truly means to love riding. The style of Long Riders is very similar to Bakuon where an all female cast gather together to discuss their favorite hobby. We start off with our enthusiastic newbie, Ami, who falls in love with the idea of riding upon seeing her first folding bike. She doesn’t know much about riding, but she throws herself full force into the world of riding regardless. Who else does this sound like? It sounds like Yui from K-On! Yes, the anime has a similar style and follows along the lines of most slice of life anime. If you’re looking for a slice of life anime with an all girl group like K-On!, Bakuon, or even New Game, Long Riders may be the anime for you!
