After Koguma’s night out with her newly bought, and used Super Cub, she tries to make her first friend.
Now that Koguma finally bought her used Super Cub, she drove it to school for a while. She eventually figured out where to put her helmet away, after looking up how on the manual. Even so, given that how much her life changed from getting this bike, perhaps it’s time for her to make some friends? Not only that, she kind of want to make it known that she now has a bike. She thought about it, but reluctant to do so.
Of course, it’s not until home economics class that she told everyone. The teacher instructs the class to create a drawstring bag. Of course, Koguma’s classmates are being mean towards her given her fabric selection. After Koguma mentions a motorbike, she got her classmate’s attention. That is until she mentioned that she rides a Super Cub, they became disappointed. However, there is one girl that seems interested in Koguma and her bike. If you can’t tell by the title of this episode, her name is Reiko.
I find it funny how Koguma tried to leave the school without her. I know Koguma is shy, but she is making it too obvious. Of course, Reiko holds her drawstring bag that she forgot. Either way, she showed Reiko the bike and she seems impressed. She also showed off her Honda MD90 Postal Cub. While it looks slow, she basically modified it to make it go faster. Yep, it’s like upgrading a computer with faster parts. Either way, it seems that Koguma is possibly interested in befriending her.
Of course, she tried to do so by greeting her, but Reiko didn’t think much of it. However, Reiko invited Koguma to lunch and already declared her friends. Reiko while eating lunch mentioned that with her bike, she has the freedom to go anywhere. It’s not too surprising since transportation whether it’s a car or a motor bike can get you to place where you can’t by walking, mass transit, or a regular bike. Yep, that is how Rin can take those camping trips in faraway places.
Of course, Koguma didn’t think much of it since she only rides her Cub from and to school. That is until she decides to take a detour and go to a supermarket. Yep, she no longer must wait until the weekend to buy groceries. She can do it anytime.
Still, it’s obvious that the Cub is a life changer for her. After all, Honda’s slogan, “The Power of Dreams” brings this point home. Still, I wonder what other places she decides to go to since it’s possible for her to go anywhere, anytime. We’ll see soon enough.
