Guess who gets lost while Tomo is showing her around Kamakura?
(Spoilers in this review)
Answer: Hiromi. Was there any other possible answer?
Anyways, she gets lost while Tomo is giving her and Shiki-sensei a tour around Kamakura. She just found riding Tomo’s bike to be really fun and kept going! As a result, Shiki-sensei calls her sister, Nagisa, for help. She in turn asks three bikers to hunt Hiromi down find Hiromi.
Meanwhile, Hiromi runs into Tomo’s sister, Yuika, after Tomo’s grandmother pointed Hiromi towards the wrong shrine. Everyone then bumps into each other at Tomo’s family’s bakery so they all go biking together.
We learn about how to pick bikes based on height and about riding posture in the last few minutes of the episode during the real-life footage segement.
Thoughts on this episode:
Hiromi is almost as ditzy and as helpless as Ami from Long Riders! Sorry, I really shouldn’t compare the two series, but I can’t help it.
Everyone now knows each other by episode 2 so the pace isn’t bad! Well, wait, I think the blonde-haired beauty still needs to pop in. Never mind.
Where the heck do I get small apples like that?
Nagisa seems to have three henchmen, wow!
May Yuika’s skill as an artist increase. The ability to sketch nekomimi shrine maidens is a valuable one.
The CG remains pretty good!
tl;dr – Pacing is a little slow but reasonable. Hiromi already has fallen in love with biking so establishing a school club is only a matter of time (the next episode’s title is “Let’s Start a Girls Cycling Club!” so there you have it). I guess staying healthy and active is too niche so it’s up to the girls to form a club! Hopefully the highschool girls can afford to do so since I’m now under the impression that being a biker is expensive…
