If this ever get licensed, it will be on my to-buy list!

It's true Shinozaki Mikoto IS stupid, with no common sense whatsoever. Sometimes it's too much, his stupidity, i mean. And it's not like he gets the girls, cool, popular, or even worth looking at in school, but the manga is NOT mainly about how he get common sense or that, it is about him loving to ride and race with all his heart. Now THAT'S important, like screaming to the viewers and telling them to go out and do something just as cool.

Again --- 10/10 a must buy, read, and watch!!!

Sometimes i simply hate Shinozaki for being that much of an idiot.
He is not simply weak or unlucky or not smart enough, he is irritatingly stupid.

It's usual in sport manga the main character beiing uncool and ignorant about the sport the manga is about, but this is too much.
Therefore it is unrealistic for the girl to become interested in him.

I still have hopes that he will reform himself through the sport training and races, and he won't just become better at cycling, but he will get some common sense too.
