The last episode of Long Riders! for the year 2016! Apparently the last two episodes are going straight to Blu-Ray…
(Spoilers in this review)
Ami is panicking over how they’re very close to not finishing the race in time, but the others aren’t too worried. As they talk vaguely about switching leads every 30 seconds, they only instruct Ami to stay within 1 meter of the rider in front of her and to not worry. What’s their secret plan?
Turns out they’re doing this kind of thing called a slipstream. The cyclist leading the pack fights against the wind, making it easier for the others, who are following her lead, to maintain speed. Smart!
Unfortunately, Team Fortuna was a bit too late.
…just kidding, they made it! The time displayed on her bike was off! Success!
The girls all head to their inn afterwards and celebrate with food. Ami ends up falling asleep while eating, the poor girl.
The second half of the episode basically shows Ami finally earning some onee-chan points with Emi. About time! I know this will disappoint some viewers / readerws, but their bombshell mom does not make an appearance in this episode. I am sorry.
Right as Emi is about to say something to Ami (probably something about biking as she got out the words, “ore mo“), her cell phone rings. Turns out her friends want to meet up at a store, so off she goes!
Unfortunately for Emi, her bike gets a flat tire. So she walks it home and Ami spots her while she’s trying to do laundry (the girl should be resting in bed!)
Fortunately for Emi, the newbie member of Team Fortuna is here to fix her flat tire! I’m sorry, I just had to throw in that line since the team’s very name is Fortuna. It was a perfect chance!
The next episode is titled, “The Moment the City Starts to Move.” I don’t know when I’ll ever get to reviewing that episode. It seems like Ami has her typical overreaction and the girls try to ride up the mountain that’s seen in the OP?
See you next time!
