THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
A very enticing journey of MOE and motorcycles. It lived quite well to its expectations. Tons of nice girls.

Haruno has this MOE that goes very well in general with her face and hair. Specifically its color. Seems most of her actions whether it is from drinking tea to wandering around gives out a MOE blush natural aura so to speak. Her motorcycle is cute. It’s a scooter type. Honda I think, not sure. Honda I think sponsors this anyway.

While Cynthia B. Rogers is quite the amusing bomb shell that is not afraid of showing out her chest in general. I do like her attitude. I would certainly enjoy as much as Haruno to travel around like that. Cynthia was most hilarious in the following,

And the chicken wins! YES! HAHHHAH! That was one of the most hilarious moments in this episode.

In terms of motorcycles, I have to admit I am a Harley Davidson lover. Not really wild over the Asian Motorcycles, however the ones in this series are quite nicely done. Mostly Hondas from what I saw.

That being said this series has potential and it’s doing it aright IMO.

Haven't seen a girl on a motorcycle from this year's series since Saber from F/Z.

Not feeling well for this OVA but it does have humor.

I know it's a joint venture with Honda, but its wierd to see all the advertising. That said, I really enjoyed this. I like violent anime, but its nice to watch something pieceful now and again, hell if I had to describe this anime it would have to be pieceful and heartwarming, sure there ain't much of a purpose to it, but thats kindov what I liked about it. The art was great, the vistas were beautiful, and the music was really calming. I especially liked the american chick Cynthia and her relationship with Haruno. Like I said, there ain't much of a point to this, but its so pieceful and heartwarming I know I'm really gonna love this anime and will be sad once it's over...and that doubly sucks cause its only 4 episodes...

ok it's an advertisement
but made by SatoJun <3
so it's everything that makes his works so adorable: calm climate, scenery porn and nice characters
even that advertisement and technical porn wasn't too bad - someone had to pay for this and it's still not Fujishima Kosuke level ;)

Not bad, actually quite enjoyable. Likable characters, nice bikes and even a deeper meaning to the story. I wonder if we'll see more of this. :)

Wanderlust - had it when I was young, and managed to do some, but not enough. Lately it's been kicking in again and I can relate.

Nicely done. The ads is very minimal when compared to PES.

I don't like Cynthia character setup but I like the funny moments during her hell in a cell with the chicken and her kissing scene with ...

Rie voice is ... ._."

Indeed she has a nice chest but I believe she is foreign so it could be that it's natural. Obviously an envy of many Japanese women.

I thought it was great...wonder if there will be more episodes in the future.

I can't seem watch this anymore the same way without thinking of the perverted Yokoshima sensei from Seitokai Yakuindomo being Cynthia.

This was pretty nice.
It was peaceful and relaxing and i liked the meaning behind it.
The characters where nice as well and they seemed to have a nice friendship the youngest one of them was so funny and Cynthia is a great character.

Tho it's obviously a work of Honda i still liked the bikes in there and it was pretty detailed.

I didn't expect anything, but i got nicely suprised. Very relaxing atmosphere, fitting pacing, great seiyuu cast - everything is great for this kind of show, despite being a promotional series for Honda. Bikes seem pretty detailed and nicely done too, though it was weird seeing Honda everywhere with no other brand.

Also, EveTaku subs were pretty weird translating Cynthia's engrish to 5 different languages but it really fit with her character.

I didn't even notice any of that until I brought up this forum last night. Guess I was easily sucked into the story since it is something that's been on my mind lately.

As expected of the creator of Aria. I felt so relax watching this feel good anime. 30 minute honda ad? Doesn't seem like it thought.

Cynthia is hot, and funny too. She got pawned by chickens and got bitten by a cute puppy.

Oh yeah, Evetaku subbed this to my suprise.

nice BOING
Isayama Hajime should be awarded The Manga with The Highest Inconsistencies of Characters' Appearances.
He keeps performing multiple plastic surgeries on those Shingeki No Kyojin characters in a SINGLE chapter.
Yes, I've read up to the latest chapter of Shingeki No Kyojin manga.
Forced myself to read through the kidsketching chapters after the anime's ended. At least from now on, I only have to go through the hell once a month.
Patiently awaiting SNK TV/movie/OVA anime-sequel.
The 2015 SNK live-action movie would probably suck.

Woah, Cynthia is one of the most charismatic characters I've seen in a long time. At least in my opinion, she carries this series. Haruno is just too pessimistic, though we can tell she will learn.
That actually sounds really nice, a small town in the hills, the bike shop with a cafe. .
