The season for high school entrance exams arrives! Yume and her friend Chisame Nakano come to sit for an exam at Okanoue High School. At school, the members of the motorbike club are acting as guides and they are busy selling the club as well making motorbike sounds by mouth. Chisame is actually a pocket bike rider and appears to be a great candidate for the club, but she doesn’t seem to be interested in the club… Spring is the season to begin a new relationship, but it is also the time for farewells. Raimu is a third-year student, so Hane and the others will try to take responsibility for the club to reassure Raimu that they’ll be OK when she leaves school…
A new rider, who is a high school girl, appears in the episode.
Her name is Chisame Nakano, a friend of Hane’s little sister Yume. She is petite with black hair tied up in pigtails. Yume and Chisame sit for an entrance exam together.
Since she was little, Chisame has been riding in races, so the club members have high hopes for her to become one of them.
Hane, Onsa and the other club members don’t know it, but Chisame has another connection to the motorbike club.
She is, in fact, the daughter of the former club member, Akina.
Tazuko finds out about her on the phone and gets shocked. That’s totally news to her that Akina is even married.
Tazuko, as a high school girl, didn’t like boys at all. She rejected every boy who came after her on the motorbike. It’s been 20 years since then.
Her high school friend is now married and has a high school age daughter. On the other hand, Tazuko still has no experience with men being well into her 40s.
Akina asks Tazuko a question…’is it because of Raimu?’
When Tazuko is at high school, Raimu is always there to protect her by getting rid of boys coming for Tazuko.
Since then, Raimu, who knows her age, is always and still there for her and the motorbike club as their guardian.
Raimu makes up her mind to stay on at school again this year after doing the same dozens of times in the past and remains as a member of the motorbike club.
In April, Hane and the others move up to the second year, and they welcome new students.
To introduce the club to the new students, the members are to bring their motorbikes onto the stage at club orientation.
However, they find out that they are not allowed to do that one hour before the performance on the day.
As a result, they go up to the stage holding just a handlebar in each hand. They actually do so well with their hilarious performance to make the new students laugh.
Yume and Chisame stare at the club members on the stage. Rin, who is not a member yet, does the same.
The members have high hopes for Chisame, but she makes the comment that ‘motorbikes aren’t meant to be ridden on public roads’.
She is petite and not athletic, but she starts riding for motor racing because of her parents.
Her small and light body works as a huge advantage in racing, which you need to lean a motorbike as much as possible, and she wins the races.
She is a highly skilled rider, but it doesn’t mean she rules public roads. In fact, she is not physically able to do so.
When she is on a motorbike, her feet don’t reach the ground. It may be all right in a race, but it is a massive problem on public roads.
Her petite body acts as a weapon on a racetrack, but it seems to drag her down again to move on.
For that reason, Chisame is not thinking to join the motorbike club. However, she gets stirred up as she watches the members dance ‘hang on’, and she even walks up to the stage to join them showing off her impressive ‘hang on’ moves.
Is she really going to reject the club…just like Rin?
