Bakuon is good… because I’m a motorcycle geek

[HorribleSubs] Bakuon!! - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.45_[2016.04.19_16.25.18]

Heh, she's such a geek. Heh, she’s such a geek.

…well sort of.

I said geek and I’m a fan of them, though “geek” here only extends as much as googling random crap about them, and forget about them a few weeks later. Other than googling about them, I never really delve any further into them. Outside of anime and games, I have these few “geek” interests where I sporadically, and I mean VERY sporadically research random trivia on google, wiki and youtube in an on-off manner; so it’s not like I’m very knowledgeable about them either. So far I was a dancing geek, wrestling geek, martial arts geek (I like Asian kung fu movies, even if I don’t watch a lot) and a motorcycle geek.

Being a motorcycle geek, this trait of mine is even something I transition to one of my mascots, Kyouko, though for now, the only artwork I managed to commission is one where she rides a Yamaha Stryker. I have like a list of motorcycles I want to commission for Kyouko but it’s probably a dream left forever unfulfilled.

Totally. Not at all.

Totally. Not at all.

It’s funny too because I know next to nothing about motorcycles. There are times where I saw some sick-looking motorcycles, I would point at them and say “OH SHIT, LOOKS SO COOL”, but beyond that, I know nothing. I guess I like them more for their aesthetics rather than performance and actually riding them, and I definitely don’t plan on getting a motorcycle license anytime soon. Sometimes, some things are just meant to be admired from a distance, otoko no roman, if you will.

…Here’s a confession: I hate driving. I used to be the same as the next guy who’s like “OH SHIT, LOOK AT THAT SPORTS CAR. IT’S SO COOL, SONUVABITCH“, but when I actually tried to get my car license, it’s anything but cool, and it’s only then that I realized: driving is shit. I did manage to get a license after awhile, but now I drive more out of necessity rather than because it’s “cool and fun”. Whenever I’m on the wheels, I keep thinking “Just how the heck do people find this fun?”

I guess the point is-reality’s a bitch and I don’t want to shatter my dreams with motorcycles. Again, some things are just meant to be admired from a distance. Obviously, don’t even get me started on the technicalities and specifications on vehicles because I don’t even care to know, maybe just enough to know which car to pick if I were to buy one next time… but certainly not enough to say, modify cars-a hobby a lot of my guy friends are into.

My ramblings got a bit lengthy there, but yeah, Bakuon is good, because I’m (sort of) a motorcycle geek, who one way or the other, still haven’t got his dreams shattered by reality. And when you combine the fact that this is actually a moe anime… I think you know where I’m coming from.

Now, if only one of them in Bakuon would ride a Harley Davidson while wearing a pair of sunglasses and leather coat, that would be a dream come true, but I guess that’s too much to ask.


It's also kinda lewd.

Additionally, it’s also kinda lewd.

P.S: I only just noticed Bakuon was actually drawn by a hentai manga artist. No wonder I like it so muc- OH WAIT

    • Nah, they are nothing alike. K-ON’s cute and while this one can technically be counted as moe anime, it’s super ecchi, lol. I only added that last line in the end as a joke.

  1. I like bikes mainly for the looks, but it’s dangerous from my impression, some bikers drive so reckless on roads.
    On the other hand I love this show, a fresh idea and nice atmosphere with the different types of characters.
    Ahahaha and they totally bash Ducati

    … a hentai manga artist, well thats explains everything about Rin’s hot and cute fanservice body ( ̄▽+ ̄*)

    • I assume it’s uncomfortable too. Even the anime acknowledged this and it’s answer to it is pretty much just “people bikes… because they can”.

      And Rin…

  2. I managed to watch all 4 episodes in one day and it is surprisingly enjoyable. Kind of reminds me of Top Gear and K-ON, except girls being enthusiastic about motorcycles instead of cars, which is a change. Not a motorcycle person myself since I prefer cars, but they are cool to look at, especially girls riding them.

    • It’s actually kinda hilarious (Jesus Bike xD), probably a lot more than I thought. I never watch Top Gear but I see what you mean. Yeah, I like motorcycles myself more for the look, there’s just something oddly charming about riding bikes, with your back straight, while wearing sunglasses and leather coat like a badass (I prefer cruisers mostly, if you notice).
