I just watched it, kinda okay.. They just make it tame though.. I mean the spoiler[Ducati get bashed scene is not harshly] like in manga.

Anyway why Crunchyroll translated Raimu as Lime?

What I like the most about this is that Raimu is a very obvious reference to The Stig. In fact, she's not The Stig, but she is The Stig's Japanese cousin!

Not to mention here name is a reference to Kawasaki Green.

Wait, does she seriously not take her helmet off? That's just bizarre.

I suspect all of the names might be puns since Suzukino > Suzuki.


So, what episode do they attend the funeral of a friend who gets t-boned by a distracted driver?

The artwork makes it look like the protagonist's head was edited in from artwork somewhere else.

Say, is this an official licensed product for all of these manufacturers?

Probably because her motorcycle is lime green.

I just watched the first episode. The fanservice was a little off-putting, but nothing that would make me wanna stop watching. I could do without spoiler[Hane grabbing Lime's boobs as they ride] and spoiler[Rin's jiggle physics] though.

And yeah, the 4 just basically seem like After-School Bike Time, if you know what I mean. I mean, seriously;

Hane = Yui
Onsa = Ritsu
Lime = Mio
Rin = Mugi

Did anyone else see it, or was it just me? Kinda seemed pretty obvious to me.

But still...

It could be that there's some licensing clause where you can only show so much damage to a vehicle, similar to how Gran Turismo didn't use to show damage to cars at all until Forza Motorsports raised the "allowable visual damage" bar.

Yeah I can see it except Raimu. Raimu is not really main character focused anyway, and Hijiri is more like Mugi than Rin so:

Hane = Yui
Onsa = Ritsu
Rin = Mio
Hijiri = Mugi

and Hane little sister more like Ui, so much reference to K-ON
