Bakuon!! Episode 12 A World of What-ifs!!
Hane fell and scratched the tank of Super Four. She brought it to Onsa’s store for repair, but they failed to fix it and it got even worse than before. Then Hane happened to meet someone again… Hane talked to Onsa and the others about how necessary motorcycles are in the world. The next morning, when Hane woke up, all the motorcycles in the entire world were gone! What conclusion did she make?
This silly crazy anime is ending with this episode.
The last episode is “The world of What-ifs”
Hane was knocked off her motorcycle, Super Four, for the first time, and she had to exchange its oil tank. Then she met the motorcycle, Baita who spent time at the motorcycling school. After Baita retired from school, she was deconstructed and sold for parts. She was pessimistic about it, but Hane exchanged her motorcycle’s oil tank with Baita’s, which made her happy because she can drive with Baita again.
Hane had a reunion with another key person, who was the mysterious man riding on the Suzuki motorcycle.
When Hane and others were going to buy a motorcycle magazine from a book store, they saw the man looking at a nude model in the motorcycle magazine. When Hane interrupted him, she was obnoxious and mentioned the nude model naughtily although Hane is a cute figure in the anime, which made me laugh.
The mysterious man slapped Hane’s cheeks because of her rudeness. He used his power and made her see the imaginary world of “what if there were no motorcycles in the world;”. He used the power several times before. In this world, the motorcycle club members were commuting on bikes. Their brands were the motorcycle’s they rode in the real world. I didn’t know about this, but motorcycle makers also make bikes. There was no Raimu in the imaginary world (although she showed up at last), which might be because Kawasaki doesn’t make bikes. Hane guessed it was because there weren’t any motorcycles.
In the last episode, they were making fun of bikes so much, but they ride on bikes naturally in this episode. Rin was loving her Suzuki bike abnormally. Hane was confused in this world without motorcycles, and everyone laughed at her when she mentioned a motorcycle saying, “who would ride on such a dangerous inconvenient vehicles?” Hane was crying because everyone had changed. In the real world, everyone in the club loved that dangerous inconvenient vehicle.
Hane came back to the real world, and went on a tour on motorcycles with the motorcycle club members. Everyone was feeling the wind while driving their beloved vehicles, and the ending theme played till the end.
The anime ended like “the motorcycle club members will continue loving motorcycles” just like typical anime endings. The opening of the last episode was naughty. I enjoyed “the world without motorcycles.” It was the same story, but the bike version, and it was like what if the motorcycle club members were bike club members which was enjoyable although Hane was sad.
From the first episode to the last, the characters’ features were strong, and the development of the story was silly, and I never got tired. I am sad this was the last episode, but you could read the original manga or buy the DVD or Blue-ray.
I’m looking forward to seeing Hane and her friends again sometime.
