One Off was subbed yesterday and I already watched it 3 times. You may think that this anime must be pure awesome because I watched it 3 times in a day, but not exactly that. I just enjoyed it a lot.


That said, One Off is still pretty amazing anime for such a short series. The story is about these 5 girls, which names I don't know doing slice of life stuff, and they like motorbikes. The blue-haired girl is funny as hell. She has cutelittlefangs and she is master of the trope, google it if you don't know. Surpasses Tsuru-chan from Suzumiya Haruhi series, read more

I realize that this anime is sponsored by Honda Motors. However, I could have really done without the bashing of bicycles and their riders as being childish and immature; yet that's how this Anime opened. It was really hard for me to get through the rest of the story after the opening scene as it left me in such a dreadful state.

Much later, I made myself watch through the rest of the anime. I discovered that it was merely an advert for Honda's motorcycles and scooters.

To compare this anime to "art" you'll see that this only comes off as an ad.

"One Off" is a very simple story. It's all about overcoming the obstacle of negative thinking, things that you may think are impossible can actually be more easily attainable when you are working towards that goal and thinking positively. If anything, you will feel better.
Nothing good comes from negative thinking except for just that, more negative thinking.

This is your basic slice of life story with mopeds, motorcycles, the eagerness to travel, and Honda (yes, the vehicle company) as the main subjects. With one of the best directors when it comes to slice of life works, Junichi Sato.

It's not original, but does anyone really expect read more

Watched because i have interest in motorcycles but despite the official Honda guidance and all the motorcycle imagery there's very little detail or actual discussion about the bikes other than just a few casual rides and the art, so it probably gives a mixed message to the crowd of people that wanted to see this. It's mostly a slice of life. Feels like K-On with scooters.

Watch if you're bored and need an hour to kill but don't want to get into a longer anime because you may have to do stuff later and don't want to leave off the story.
