Bakuon! -- ep 11


I think this was the funniest episode yet, and for this series that's really saying something.

It's in three parts, each telling a different joke. The first one is about how obnoxious and arrogant some bicycle riders are. In the second one, Onsa gets a disease and is emotionally devastated by it, and then her father and brothers figure out how to cure her.



Rin comforts her.




The joke is the nature of the disease and the nature of the cure, so of course I won't reveal it. This was the best segment of the episode.

In the last segment Chisame asks the bike club for advice on the kind of motorcycle she should buy. Big mistake. Everyone has an opinion and they end up fighting about it.



Chisame now has her scooter and she is no longer sucking light out of the room, so we're back in business.

They're taking things out of order, in the windup to the finish. The first segment of this episode was from chapter 33 of the manga. The second segment was chapter 30. And I could have sworn I saw the third segment somewhere but I just searched (twice!) and couldn't find it.

Assuming next episode (12) is the last one, I'm betting it will include chapter 36, which has another onsen scene.

2 An eboshi strapped on top of her helmet.  Sometimes the little things are hilarious.

3 One of the coolest things about Lime, especially if it turns out she's supernatural, is that she doesn't mind doing silly stuff with the rest of the girls (like the handle-bar dance a couple of episodes ago).
