The best way to describe this show is just blobs of character development mounted on top of a single plot point. Other than that, there's nothing much here that it offers to be invested into.

Story:
A sidecar racing (if you haven't heard of it) competition set in the island of Miyakejima, 7 teams of different schools with passengers and drivers (plus the main duo) fighting for their chance to be able to enter to the Isle of Man TT.

Unless you're the type that appreciates sidecar racing to an extent, there is some enjoyment out of it. But for others like us, there is some melodrama mixed with each school, but don't expect entry-level good melodrama, it feels like it wears its welcome pretty quick before you know how it turns out.

Characters:
I don't buy the idea with so many characters having the main screen time as opposed to one with a real plot, so here goes:

Our main duo, Meguri and Yuri, the always-at-odds girl couple, fighting for their coach's affection, which in turn became the main driving force for them to win the Miyakejima TT.

The other schools passengers and drivers each have an episode or two about their backstories and reasons to compete in the TT, but that's as far as it goes to a further extent because while it can be intimidating, it turns out bland pretty quick.

Art/Animation:
This is Silver Link's 10th anniversary original project offering, but it felt like they wasted their time making something that you can plainly say it's bad in every way, because it is. While it looks decently good on screen, there's not much that can be said about their prowess in making mediocre to decent ones before. That being said, it more or less feels like a passion project than one that is ambitious to be brought out onto anime form.

Sound:
Another decent but not well rounded job. I usually like the OST, but that aspect cannot be found here. Same goes with how the BGM is always done, it felt forced and inconsistent at times, even to the extent of the feels of the show.

Overall:
With another project occurring in the same season (Imouto sae Ireba li, which is the best of the two), this show doesn't feel on as it should be, but then honestly, there's no redeeming value for this show. It feels half-baked and while people already dismissed it straight from the 1st episode, don't bother coming back to this one. It decent, but mediocre in every way.
