One day, Onsa became sick and bedridden. Rin thought she might have made her sick because Rin spent some time with her before getting sick. Saruyama, their homeroom teacher, said Onsa caught an unknown strange disease, so she shouldn’t visit her. Rin thought if Onsa got sick from her, Rin should be sick too, but Rin is not sick. Rin decided to visit Onsa, and she saw an unbelievable scene at her house. Meanwhile, motorcyclists and bicyclists were competing on the roads. What will happen?
Episode 11 was about bicycles. Two men who were bicycling on Road Racers said “my Road Racer was ￥150.000 (~1.400$),” “Mine was￥120.000 (~1.100$), so not bad.” They competed with prices while they were bicycling.
Then a guy came from behind, saying “my Road Racer was ¥1.000.000 (~9.500$)” and he blew the two away. The bicyclist said “this Road Racer was the same model as the ones used in the world’s greatest bicycle competition, like F1 for cars.” Hane and Onsa came by motorcycle from behind them.
Even if they were great cyclists, they weren’t any faster than motorcycles; Hane and Onsa passed them instantly. The ￥1,000,000 cyclist thought “They are enemies to the global environment, emitting black exhaust!” He felt insulted by Hane and Onsa and started speeding up. He sped up so much he passed motorcycles and cars trying to show them “I’m faster than you all!” and he passed Onsa and Hane. At first, the cyclists were saying the more expensive, the better performance bikes have, but the ￥1,000,000 guy thought price is in proportion to power.
He was showing off his speed and feeling happy, but he collided with the fancy car of Hayakawa and Hijiri parked by a meter. He was charged for more than ￥1,000,000.
The next episode is about Rin and Onsa.
Rin drooled on Onsa’s hand, but Onsa thought it was hers, and licked it. It was kind of awkward. Later, Onsa started feeling pain at school, and was sent to the hospital. Rin was worried if Onsa got sick from her, and visited her house. Onsa was licking a Suzuki motorcycle in her room where a lot of posters of the motorcycle were on the wall.
Onsa was infected with a strange disease, “Suzuki-holic,” and she fell in love with Suzuki more than Yamaha did. Onsa sadly said she had thought Suzuki was lame, but now she was loving Suzuki. “Onsa, you said all bikes are equally good, but you discriminated Suzuki,” said Rin, and Onsa felt guilty and started crying.
Onsa’s father and her brother came to Onsa’s room saying they found out how to cure the disease. According to her doctor, Suzuki-holic viruses become active under the situation where Suzuki is mocked, so if you praise Suzuki the virus will stop spreading.
Onsa’s brother did so and her symptoms stopped, and Onsa regained her opinion that Suzuki is lame.
Onsa’s family felt peace again, and Rin left. Rin drove her Katana while thinking “You guys don’t understand how good Suzuki is.”
Suzuki is one of the sponsors of this anime, but they mock it like they usually do. In the earlier episode, they mocked bicycles. I wonder if they are allowed to do this because this anime genre itself mocks motorcycles.
Then at last, Chisame finally got the motorcycle license, and went shopping for a motorcycle to ride on public roads. She went with other members of the motorcycle club, but they recommended the brands of their individual motorcycles.
Somehow they decided to settle who is better though sumo wrestling.
Hane won, but Chisame was already gone. “Which one should I get?” Chisame wondered. Then her father, an ex GP racer showed up. He said “I have been called Prince when I was a pro racer, and I was actually a descendant of a royal family.
Chisame has his blood in her too, so any motorcycle you pick will be fine.” He took his mole, his trademark, from his face and put it by her eye. Chisame chose a scooter because she thinks motorcycles are not for public roads, but for the circuit.
