Pretty simple and straight forward OVA I guess. I haven't read the manga so not sure how well this was adapted. Well, this guy sports some weird green hair:

OVA reminded me a little of Overdrive. The OST is okay I guess. I sense a bit of the intensity from the riders though. Seems like the MC is pretty determined in what he's doing :3

This green haired guy reminds me so much of the annoying guy in Shiki! I guess is the chin lol

It looked good, the antagonists look crazy.

I liked the OVA, it was a good episode as training for the IH :) Also it was funny to see how the green haired guy rides :D
My goal is to watch as much anime as possible. On my profile you will also find a list of seen cartoons & movies. Sometimes I release older anime or sub some things. If you have any questions, just ask!

This was a nice OVA. That interaction between Onoda and Makishima in the beginning was funny.

I enjoyed it a lot, but that being said, I have seen the anime up until current (ep 18); Had I walked into this first, I probably wouldn't have understood anything. Doesn't have enough as a standalone; and considering it aired before the anime, I dropped it from a 5/5 to a 4/5;

Very enjoyable watch though

Great OVA. The interactions between Onoda and Makishima are so funny~

Fun fun fun :D

Makishima and his anti-social personality having to try and getting closer to Onoda was lol.
But he chose the wrong way to approach XD Talking about anime = he is screwed hahaha. Onoda entering otaku mode was hilarious lol. Poor Maksihima ^^;

The race was nice. Really nice rivalry between the 1st years and 3rd years :D

Loved how Onoda got hyped after getting his sticker back. Dat smile was lol XDXD

Intense ride with Maki. But he lost by a bit. Still can't get over Makishima's climbing style hahaha.

Was nice to see that Onoda defeated Imaizumi and Naruko in the climb. It really has become his specialty ;) Really can't wait for Inter-High :D

For those who wonder, I suggest watching this after episode 21 of the anime. It is before the Inter-High race and after Team Sohoku has chosen their members

From reading the posts, this is more a stand-alone story that looked it condensed the first 15 episodes?
What if the Hokey Pokey is what it is all about?

Very amusing episode, I love Onoda's reactions when it comes to anime :D
Mashi is still king of the hill though ; )

From what I understand, this is supposed to be watched after episode 19, which I did. Weird that this aired before the series, 'cause it wouldn't make much sense without any development

I was dying about Makishima being stuck with Onoda while trying to be nice but really getting annoyed. So good, I was wiggling around in delight by the conclusion with the second figure. xD

Even an OVA, I still have a problem with it, especially Miki. "Oniichan staph da car, Imma run to chase someone on a bike in a mountain area (dangerous)". I doubt Onoda would turn back to find his sticker during a practice session, that just doesn't seem like him at all, he wouldn't dare to disobey his senpai. I always have problem with Onoda, or anyone else for that matter, to miraculously catch up to someone. Though, I really like how they position the members during the hill climb, Onoda and Makishima on the front, they are climber so obviously they should be on the front. I don't like how Onoda is giving Makishima a fight tho, he is not there yet.

That said, I liked Onoda's funny moments. The Manami guy, I didn't quite notice it before, but his character design is beautiful compare to the other characters from this series, from his face to his hair and hair colour.
