Bakuon is a great and special thing. An easy favorite. Top Gear x K-On

A most charming send-up to K-On and Top Gear plus the author's very obvious love of motorcycles makes for a great manga about fandoms with a heaping helping of Orimoto Mimana's unique and excellent, kind of cynical sense of humor. I love this manga. I wouldn't necessarily call it "fun", but it's definitely relaxing a lot of the time and it's without a doubt funNY. Wrote a review on it. The series is great even if you have no real interest in motorbikes.

Bakuon!! is fun. It's a lot of fun. I'm afraid that unlike the last commentator I'm not Sophisticated and Mature enough of an unvirgin (lol), to dislike this manga.

To call this K-On with bikes isn't a slur, in fact it's how this manga is actually advertised (unlike the original k-on manga however, this isn't a 4koma). The girls are hilarious, the plot is largely episodic and Larry David'ish (no lessons learned), and the level of motorcycle knowledge and trivia displayed would make the editorial board of Cycle World applaud. Seriously, I have no clue why the other guy says "I actually have a motorcycle license and am interested in a proper series about the scene", as the manga is larded with bike culture references. It's almost like he hasn't *gasp* actually read the manga.

To sum up if you like bike trivia and culture, cute-girls-doing-stupid-things, and zany, lowbrow, madcap humour, then give this a shot.

Just a post script of sorts, the other commentator accused Orimoto of drawing naughty manga in the past, that's true. So have the mangaka of Yotsuba&, Ghost in the Shell, Black Lagoon, Shokugeki no Soma, Medaka Box, Negima, Gunslinger Girl, Tenchi Muyo, Bastard, Keroro Gunsou and Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō. Plus hundreds more.
So what's the point? Who knows? ask him.

I don´t care about this vapid K-On clone but it represents the mangaka´s first anime adaptation despite cranking out one creepy softcore porno after the other. He then decided to skip any sexual content for once and out came his first long running series. The lesson here is that the market is more interested with virginity porn / pandering than actual porn. Lol. I actually have a motorcycle license and am interested in a proper series about the scene. Read the reviewed and car focused Wangan Midnight (8/10) instead.
