In 10 minutes. Are you ready ?
Waiting for [commieh].
The last minutes and hours hurt the most.
>tfw no roado racah
He's my hero
Oh 2chan ...
I want to protect those big round eyes.
I'm sure you do...
This is taking a while.
I can't wait, this episode is going to be INTENSE.
Hope vol 2 sells decently.
Did you guys read volume 10 yet?
I've stopped all manga reading for this. The anime has already caught up to where I was so I'd rather watch it than read it. It's more exciting.
Gravity. How does it work.
>2 more hours
You gotta make these threads later, rather than earlier OP.
That's a shooper
why is this anime so good? yesterday I marathoned it and when I was at the 12th episode or so I realized I enjoy it tons more than shit la shit, to name another ongoing show.
Because it's not trying hard to be something it's not.
I downloaded the raws up to volume 32, although I kind of wish I didn't because now there's nothing else to look at now.
Some interesting spoilers, nothing too detailed
Sugimoto gets his ass kicked in a race with the new freshmen, he also has a younger brother that joins the club
Aoyagi can do the same breathing trick as Tadokoro (and it looks absolutely ridiculous)
Since Midosuji was the only freshman on his team the only other members left are braces and freckles, there's a new first year with a headband that's their masseuse
Izumida is the new captain of Hakogaku's team, there's a whole bunch of new members since almost everyone graduated
One of the new members is his childhood friend, another is the childhood friend/now rival of Teshima
Kinjou and Arakita attend the same University
Naruko looks exactly like his grandma
Wait, why is Midosuji wearing that?
It's a joke
I'm really looking forward to this episode, the second-years' effort at the training camp is one of my favorite parts of the manga (as far as it has been translated).
>tfw when none of your regular riding buddies are fast enough for you to draft together unless you slow way the fuck down and pull them
>feels good but also bad
While we wait for subs, let's see what /a/non rides. Here's one of my road bikes.
>TFW NO ROADO RACAH
I know that feel.
The roads here are dangerous, the mountains and fields are safe.
>mountains are safe
Dunno about that, the overwhelming majority of crashes I've had have come while riding aggressively on mountain bikes, I find road riding to be very safe by comparison.
>sprain a wrist
>get run over by a car
I think I'll stick to my mountain bike.
>episode still not out
I'm getting impatient.
My best one
Today is the warmest day this week, so I will probably wait until tonight to watch
That gearing looks really low, otherwise I like it.
They pushed back the release a few weeks ago right? Anyone know why?
Yeah. It's a compact 50/34, and a 12-28 in the back, but I'm very spinny.
I've never spun out the biggest gear and thought to myself I need to be going 1.5 mph faster! (especially since I can't, because I'm only 125 lbs, so I reach terminal velocity on descents sooner than most guys)
That a matte finish?
Nice I like it
I know that feeling, at 150 pounds I have to sprint hard to keep up with heavier guys when going downhill.
I only have this bicycle (not my photo but it's the same one), I got it for free at my summer job. I was thinking about using it to bike to work when it gets warmer because it's only around four miles on a decent sized road.
The only thing is that I know it's an older bike so it's got to be a lot heavier than a new model unless I buy another. I also haven't rode in a long time so I have to practice before I try going out for a real trip.
>when it gets warmer
Why wait? Winter riding can be a lot of fun.
I started my riding to work in the winter, and I didn't have the right clothing. The early winter mornings are a whole lot colder than when the sun has been out. I didn't know what cold wind could do to fingers, so my pair of gloves was totally inadequate, even for only just over 3 miles. My fingertips froze and hurt, and it made me feel so bad I threw up as soon as I got off the bike.
Just be sure to have the right gear; I didn't.
B-but the sand
I ride a dirto jumpah. But with 10 speed 11-36 cassette and locking fork it's actually a do-it-all bike.
We get T2 today right?
>Prepare for trouble
The best goddamn part of the race is starting.
>[HorribleSubs] Yowamushi Pedal - 15 [720p].mkv
the time has come
That scene was awesome in the manga, I hope its just as good in the anime.
>tfw you'll never ride with /a/ in anime kits
Damn, the OST is good.
Makes me wanna ride while listening to it.
I wanna ride you while listening to it.
N-no homo of course.
>tfw pleb-tier casual bike
I kinda wish I had a road racer, but then again, we don't have any roads I could drive it on. On most roads you are forced to drive on the sidewalk and that wouldn't work out.
The OST really fits well with the cycling theme. I love it.
I'm halfway there... Never say never.
Nah dude, they are so in-sync that they can overlap wheels through a bend and not worry about the other drifting out of their line.
Be sure to read the warning each episode before getting any cool ideas.
It's okay anon, it's not like I have a bro to bike with ;_;
btw, the animu is on the back
What a glorious dick.
>tfw you realize the episode is already over
>hand on ass
That episode felt too fucking short.
This is mine, won it on my 13th birthday and now the bike itself is13 years old.
Used to go to middle school and high school on it, on those days I was almost everyday on it, me and two other friends used to go to a mountain bike tracks after school.
Still use and maintain it occasionally since it's now on my family beach house, and just today had to replace the front chainrings.
Is this how it always feels when watching good anime or sports series?
Those short segments at the end are always the best part.
What is it with women loving collarbones?
Probably the same as men and vagina bones.
Fag here, they're just attractive for some reason
But why collarbones over pecs or is it the aspect of a tease?
is perm senpai best girl?
Get your shit together Sugimoto.
God, this little shit is so annoying.
Pecs are good too, it's just collarbones are more common
He's got nice sexhair.
No wonder, that voice is earcancer
Ah this and the last season are so great, I can't remember seeing so many generic sports anime running at the same time.
There should be more. Too bad nothing new this season.
Spring has Haikyuu and Baby Steps so at least there's something to look forward to
The problem with pecs in anime is that 80% of the time they don't have nipples.
There's Ping Pong too
I like how he's obviously suffering from muscle ache because he hasn't actually practiced erryday like an "experienced rider" would. Now Onoda is a newbie, but a hardened one.
>Still can't find any uploads of Character Song Vol.4 anywhere
Does it sold even worse compared to other volumes or something?
>he hasn't actually practiced erryday like an "experienced rider" would
Everyone's getting real sick of Sugi's bullshit
This was a great episode - every episode just gets better and better, the production staff have finally figured out how to time the episodes interesting and exciting.
I'm going out for a ride now, until next week pedalbros...
Those fucking looks.
Is that an important note that onoda don't cycle with real bike shoes?
is he kinda slower that way?
Yes, proper shoes will clip onto pedals so pulling upwards turns the pedals too.
The bike shoes hold your foot to the pedal, so it's easier to spin your legs really really fast without worrying that your feet are going to slip off the pedals.
Since he uses normal shoes, his technique of spinning the pedals very quickly without anything holding his foot to the pedal is impressive.
Can Midousuji beat any of the 3rd years?
It was explained last episode.
Yes even Hakogaku
This is a common misconception. The main point of cleats is to fix your foot in the most efficient position for power transfer.
With clipless you can spin the pedals all the way around and use more muscles, so it's more efficient in the long run but also much better for sprinting. Pretty sure track cyclists use both clipless pedals and straps. It's ridiculous, they end up pulling both the handlebars and the pedals to get some crazy power in.
With platform pedals, all you can do is push a little bit with each revolution.
This is a great thread.
It's the first thread I see on /a/ where the Spoiler-Tags are used for Spoilers.
Yeah, besides his captain
He beats Arakita and ties for first with Fukutomi and Kinjou on the first day, barely beats Shinkai in a sprint-off to a checkpoint but gets defeated by Fukutomi and Kinjou at the final point, and on the third day passes Toudou, Makishima and Fukutomi before crashing and getting a retire after racing Onoda, Inaizumi and Manami
I'm hype now.
SHIT will we even make it that far?
Maybe if it goes well enough there'll be another season, the inter-high is so big I'm not sure if they'd be able to cover all of it.
Oh man, I hope none of you guys hate the second years, they gave me feels at the end of the race.
I like them. It's impossible to hate teamwork.
They're cool guys.
As much as I like Onoda, I wish Perm senpai was the MC after watching this episode. I want to know how him and Aoyagi were like when they were first years.
Oh don't worry, the author goes into their backstory in great detail.
Is that later on in the manga or is it still during this current arc?
This arc, although there's more about perm-kun around volume 29
And make it double.
fujo pls go
For those still reading the manga, what did you guys think about volume 10? Use spoiler tags if you wish.
Those pylons man.
So is the anime caught up to the (translated) manga?
sprinters are silly people
No we're in volume 6 out 10 that's been translated
It was good. Glad translation speed is picking up, can't wait for next volume with Teshima being ultimate bro as usual
Why is this manga (and anime) so lewd?
Finally? It's been that way since episode 1.
Wait a minute, I recognize that dick.
I can't decide if Izumida is kind of a cool guy or completely fucking crazy
I was waiting for this. Thanks for the laugh, anon.
>you will never touch a yowabooty
How many yowabooties has Teshima touched?
Feels bad man.
Oh shit, progress report on sleeping dragons states that v11 is fully translated already. Can't wait for Midosuji.
why is perm-senpai so sexy and awesome?
That scene was the best part of the episode, the suspense in this series is awesome.
>trains for a year with a bro
>have nice hair
Yeah, it's one thing being a character with a special talent but a normalfag that is only average and uses their best traits to their advantage is even better.
even supposed to convey?
I see it all over 2chan and I just don't get what they're trying to say.
Decided to read the chapter after the recent episode. It made me relive the days in sports when that elite underclassman overtakes the average me despite working so hard. I've never felt so depressed from a sports manga before. I'm probably going to cry watching the next episode.
Default text when poster doesn't say anything, it means
I read it too man, shit is sad ;_; they worked so fucking hard. But I can't even be mad at Onoda and the others.
At first I was really upset at Onoda since my mindset was that it isn't fair that he's able to pass them since he should be extremely exhausted from biking longer than Naruko/Imaizumi (he woke up earlier than them and even raced Manami). I kept blaming that he has plot armor or whatever. Now I'm not upset with him anymore since Onoda isn't considered an "elite" like the other two and just has fun when he's on the bike. This is the first time a manga has ever made me feel so negatively before.
Their promise. Their absolute victory. ;_;
Holy shit autistic-kun is a monster
As much as I hate him, I can't hate his crying face.
I would abuse the shit out of him.
