Synopsis

Koguma, a reserved second-year high school student, has nothing—no parents, hobbies, friends, or goals. On her way home one afternoon, she visits a vehicle shop in hopes of acquiring a motor scooter. With only enough money to make ends meet, she is disheartened by the price tags and prepares to turn back. However, as she is about to leave, the shop's owner offers her a pre-owned Honda Super Cub for ten thousand yen. Believing that the motorcycle will help brighten her monotonous world, she accepts the deal. As Koguma journeys through her town on small adventures with her Super Cub, she begins to build irreplaceable friendships and eagerly advances toward her new life.

Esoteric ideologies on the jubilation of owning a Honda Super Cub: Embrace materialism and the consumerist worldview to derive happiness and escape our amalgamated depression. Evocating tranquillity through enthralling artistic direction, incorporating subtle visual prompts, coupled with reserved use of melancholic classical works. Affable characters and eloquent dialogue depicts personal growth through sincere adversity; modest in theming. Predominantly pastel palette landscapes are home to consistently detailed designs and graceful animation, particularly in the CGI. Gleaming with artistic integrity and nuanced prose, Super Cub stands at the forefront of modern Iyashikei. Thank you, Honda and Studio Kai, for sponsoring this short review.

Watching Super Cub kind of feels like taking a bath. It's a bit plain and simple, yet never fails to soothe you even when you are having a bad time.

Super Cub revolves around high school student Koguma, a timid and lonely girl who has never had anything that she could cherish. As Koguma herself describes, she has nothing—no parents, no hobbies, no friends, and no goals. However, after buying a pre-used Super Cub, she finally finds something that even she could enjoy. The anime chronicles the now adventurous days of Koguma's life, showcasing how vastly she has changed and continues to change.

Mild Spoilers in a marked section

"I have no parents. No money either. Nor do I have any hobbies, friends, or goals for the future. But, where I didn't have anything in my life before.... now I have a cub."

I have always considered myself as a Slice-of-Life enthusiast. I have hardly rated any Slice-of-Life anime lowly but Super CGI has done it. It has broken my streak and that isn't a good thing.

I’m just going to begin with the art. Wow, the character designs are ugly. Just take a look at how Studio Kai draws lines. The lines on Koguma's face makes me think that read more

What's a bike for you? Well, it's a strange question, but at the same time, Super Cub questions this during his episodes. It is peculiar that for some people is just another type of vehicle, which can be used for work or simply take us faster anywhere we want. But is it just that?

Koguma has an experience with a Super Cub, a kind of common motorcycle in Japan, which at the same time would not be such a great achievement for us, but that for her, it is a unique and incredible achievement. She lives in a region right away from the rest of the read more
