Shinozaki Mikoto is a timid and short-statured 15-year-old high school sophomore who often gets picked on at school. The girl whom he admires, Fukazawa Yuki, happens to discover an overwhelming strength of heart behind his shy appearance. In efforts to promote the school's emergent cycling club, she introduces cycling to Mikoto and tries to talk him into joining the club, as she's thoroughly convinced he has a special inner drive that makes him a promising cyclist. How far will cycling take Mikoto, not only materialistically, but in his growth as a person?

Preliminary (72/150 eps)
I know next to nothing about cycling, and I don't know what made me want to read this manga, but I'm very glad that I gave it a try. Over Drive is an under-rated sports manga that is refreshingly pragmatic.

The story is fairly standard for a sports manga. The MC is an immature high-school boy who isn't very good at anything until he discovers his love for cycling. Along the way to the top, he makes his first true friends, gets closer to the girl he likes, ect. It's nothing spectacular, but Over Drive avoids the stereotypical "here comes a new challenger! Defeat him ...
