First Impression: Over Drive

Over Drive - 01

I remember that time I just got into cycling, naturally one would look for anything related to his hobby and I stumbled across this anime. It received good reviews which was written back in 2008 on MyAnimeList. I remember I had the complete series ready since 3 years ago, however I kept it on hold since then for unknown reason.

Got the DVD out of the box and start to watch it. Immediately I’m annoyed by the stupidity of the main protagonist, Shinozaki Mikoto.

Maybe he’s portrayed as a clumsy and stupid to provide a certain level of comedic effect. But dear production team of Over Drive, I seriously don’t get your sense of humour.

The jokes are horrible.

Next up, the female protagonist, Fukuzawa Yuki, which I have no idea what’s her purpose in this show at this point of time.

If you watched the episode (or refer to above 2 screenshots), you’ll be amazed that red colour is produced from blue paint..

Bad jokes, bad transition of scenes, bad BGM and worst of all awkward silence during certain scenes. But one thing it excels, the spirit of cycling.

I wonder if I manage to complete this series or not..
