Preliminary Spoiler
Jun 23, 2021
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.

Super Cub seems like ...

I’m a fan of most genres of anime, and love myself a slow paced, wholesome, slice of life anime every once in a while, just to take my mind off of things… And wow has Super Cub surprised me, it exceeded all my expectations, it was love at first episode!

Story - 8
The story is about a second year high school student named Koguma, she doesn't lead a very interesting life. She has no parents, no friends and no hobbies to keep her daily life interesting. One day, she acquires a second-hand Honda Super Cub motorcycle and rides it to school. As time goes by, not ...

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 ...

Okay, I have had enough of this crap. I am tired of sitting on this gosh darn masterpiece of an anime.

Those of us watching are currently wrapped up in this absolute gemstone of an anime in a season where it is so easy to be covered up. I am here to unravel this wonderful anime about cute girls scooting.

Before we get into the categories, let me address my first thoughts that made me wary. With all I'm about to say, you may ask "well, who is this being done by?" Well well well, funny you should ask. It's none other than.... *checks notes* Studio ...

There are many anime these days telling stories about self-discoveries. I'm talking about a type of show where a protagonist would undergo a dramatic change after meeting new people, experiencing new events, and changes themselves. Super Cub's main protagonist Koguma is one such character, a lonely girl who takes up a Honda Super Cub and begins her own journey.

Watching Super Cub is much more than just following a girl's life and her bike. Let's remember that Koguma is very lonely and starts out the show friendless with no income, friends, or even a future. A person like this would need to set a serious path ...

There is just. Something real beautiful about Super Cub. Like you need to understand, that this show, isn't something over the top, it isn't something with tons of action. But what it is, is something that's brilliantly done, and really takes you to a zone, you may have never been before. It's that good to me. I've never felt so more interested then I have within a few episodes then I have with Super Cub. Before I even say any more, honestly go watch it, pick it up and start watching it now.

Story and characters
Both of these fit together. As we follow a poor girl ...

Looking for something to fill that Yuru Camp/Non-non Biyori sized hole in your heart? Look no further, Super Cub is your answer.

Super Cub is not only arguably the best motor scooter ad ever made, it’s a damn good anime and is one of the hidden gems of a loaded season. I watch everything every season, so despite having no expectations for Super Cub, I went in with an open mind. From episode one, I was blown away by just how mesmerising this series is. It’s such a simple concept. Girl with no friends or family going through depression decides to try out a Super Cub ...

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 ...

*This review contains some spoilers*

For the first time ever, I felt compelled to write a review for an anime that has just finished airing. For somebody like myself who just doesn't do this sort of thing, it speaks volumes to how either brilliant and memorable the experience was or the exact opposite, an incredibly off-putting and/or insulting viewing . Unfortunately, I am of the latter for this series. Super Cub. What I was initially hyped for turned out to be one of the most soulless watches I've had, coupled with shameful advertisements of a product throughout the show.

For a slice of life anime to really ...

Had to revise my review because I dropped this show. It's not bad, it's just dull to me. There aren't really any characters. They exist, but they have no actual character, our protagonist is about as interesting as wood, and the fact that the show is just product placement is wearying after a while.

Even in SoL and CGDCT shows, I think it's important to have, at the very least, characters whose personalities can interact with each other in an interesting way. These types of shows usually have stock characters, but they can often get away with it by being charming in the scenarios it ...

With various relaxed slice of life series coming to their end I was worried I would not be able to find something to properly replace slow paced shows I watch for relaxation purposes. Thankfully Supercub brings us a warm story of a girl and how a motorbike changed her life. Its worth bringing to your attention that this show is episodic and you should not expect anything significant in terms of plot or overarching story, the show is simply a glimpse into the life of a girl and her friends who bond over their hobby. This review will cover various aspects of the show including ...

Super Cub is an Honda advertisement effort to sell those shiny and useless motorcycles, and it does a good job about it! First of all, I'm not being paid from Honda for this review, so I'm going to be completely impartial about it. Honda is a great company and I have the most respect out of their employees, so if you work for Honda I tell you, have a good life.

Now, going into the review, Super Cub features a glooming teenager called Koguma, whose life is as boring and middle of the pack as it can be. Koguma have no parents, money or friends at ...

It goes without saying that not everyone will be able to like, let alone understand the appeal of Super Cub. This is due in large part because of how it deviates from the Slice of Life/CGDCT formula, which more times than not tends to have a happy-go-lucky protagonist or cast of characters with a positive, optimistic outlook on life. Koguma, the protagonist of Super Cub, is anything but “happy-go-lucky”, stating rather bleakly that "I have no parents. No money either. Nor do I have any hobbies, friends, or goals for the future.” While some may proclaim that this is a betrayal of what is to ...

Where can I start? First of all, i know this is not an action anime, there won't be murders, evils, etc., I knew this when I started it.
The graphic is honestly beautiful, i like the animation and the art style.. but for me, the story is very boring. It's a chill anime, and I saw plenty of slice of life anime that were interesting, but this one didn’t pique my interest.
The dialogues are monotonous and for some reason I don’t like our protagonist either. I will finish the anime tho, because i don't really like to stop watching an anime in the middle ...

I have to say that... this anime isnt made for everyone. I think it sounds ridiculous 'cuz you can even watch it on youtube. But when i say this is not made for everyone to watch. I mean the good level of this depend on your vibe, favourite, feeling... I think these conditions are a big point to make people think Super Cub is bad. Lets talk about its weakness and strength 'cuz... you know, every single anime or film always has the weak sides and good sides
First of all, the story of this Super Cub. To ...

Just the facts. This anime is a gem. Maybe a diamond in the rough, but a gem. It is an outstanding slice of life. There is iyashikei. There are cute girls coming-of-age and growing into fine young women. Koguma, Reiko, and Shii are the nicest people! And it is not a spoiler to say there will be a happy ending. Highly recommended. For many, it will be a masterpiece. Yes, it is one non-stop ad for Honda Super Cubs. As the classic ads said: "You meet the nicest people on a Honda."

Super Cub is an attempt at a coming of age story, but places too much damn emphasis on scooters.
Before you come on my profile and say "well dumb dumb, this show IS about scooters." Yes, true. but I really would like to know the main character a bit. Similar to Yuru Camp, there is a lot of emphasis on the "activity" being done, while characters get little to no development other than their base personality traits.
In this case, I really would like to talk about Koguma, our protagonist. While it is true that she does change, make friends, and becomes more cheerful throughout the ...

Wow I didn't expect this anime could be this interesting, but I'm really pleasantly surprised, it's very calm and relaxing especially when Koguma smile, you really feel that she is very happy. Her background is kinda sad and strange (she's horphan and lives alone in a house, she says that she has no money, but this doesn't seems so real XD, or anyway not so precise)

By the way I'm really liking also the art, considering that this studio is kinda new, but frames are always full of details and this is something to consider.
I also enjoyed a lot the fact that the grey tone is ...

Having read the novel and the manga, I definitely have to say that the anime certainly did a good job at adapting the novel. But as far as adaptation of the novel goes, I think that the anime is inferior than the manga.
Explaining it shortly, the anime took a more calm/relax and serious tone in adapting, while the manga took a more goofy and comedic tone.
While the novel certainly had both those qualities, the anime felt like it was adapting the novel as it is. It's a rather "too safe" as an adaptation. Not bad, but it had the potential to be great but couldn't ...

First of all I read the Manga and this is gonna be an absolute banger. This Anime is about a girl buying a Bike and finding her hapiness. Its really wholesome and interesting. This is definetly one of the best Anime this season.

I hope everyone who reads this Review gives the Anime a chance. The main girl is really cute and the chracters are really deep. The main girl is so cute that i want to die and get isekaied into her world. I would even kill every person i know, just to go on a bike ride with her. The bike is also really ...
