“The story revolves around high school girls who discover the appeal of motorcycles. Sakura Hane is a high school student who looks a little bit like an airhead. On the way to her all-female high school one day, she is worn-out climbing a hilly road with a bicycle, but she sees a girl named Onsa Amano who is riding a motorcycle. Sakura immediately becomes interested in motorcycles, and she and Onsa join the motorcycle club at the school. Then, Sakura sets out to get her license.” -ANN

I’m sure any fan of motorcycles will appreciate Bakuon, because they get into quite a lot of detail when talking about the the bike models and parts. And the ecchi is a plus XD. Two main reasons I started this,

1.) Touyama Nao voices Suzuki Rin.

2.) Sayaka Sasaki sings the opening theme.

Other than the two reasons about Bakuon’s plot and characters were pretty mediocre. Animation is so-so mostly relying on 3D for most of the bike animation. There’s no real character development besides their growing love for motorcycles or as Hane like to call them “Auto-bi”. The real comic relief in the story is Raimu-senpai, even at the last episode no one know exactly how old she is (although she has to be at least as old as the principal of the school), nor why she still resides in the high school! But her driving skills are top notch are not to be underestimated!! There wasn’t much going on throughout the show, just a day to day in the life of highschool girls who ride bikes to school, really.
