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.

A great portrayal of depression and serene moments of discovery. The girl starts with no parents or friends, but discovers her interest and constantly finds new places to go. The plot takes it one event and moment at a time, so its very sympathetic and patient with sadness. The direction of the scenes is quite clear, the backgrounds can be subdued but detailed and realistic, and the orchestral music is inspired. There are many moments and artwork of genuine realism which can be rare in anime. A very elegant presentation, except for the animation.

The animation is usually quite bad, despite the detail being high in ...

Mixed Feelings
Ok, so this anime just interests me at least, but It felt bland because it’s not really an attractive anime to all people. Not saying its bad, its good however it’s really underappreciated. I still have some concerns about this.

Story is too simple, and too straight off, literally seeing Koguma riding in her cub anywhere around, same with Reiko and Shii, but Shii on her bike. Its almost like you’re going places point A to point B shortly and do these things simply less than a minute or so. Also the unsolved cases like how did her parents leave her, how did she end ...

In the opening, Koguma describes herself as having nothing, no friends, no parents, no money. At the end of the anime, after she makes “friends,” she repeats this exact line (including that she has no friends!!!) but adds that she now has a cub. What was the point of her spending time with the other characters then??

Koguma is a very flat MC with her only qualities being that she is self-centered and likes her cub. That’s it. My biggest issue with this show is Koguma’s treatment of Shii, who is supposed to be her friend. Koguma and Reiko, the other cub owner, tell ...
