The story revolves around high school girls who discover the appeal of motorcycles. Sakura Hane is a high school student who looks a little bit like an airhead. On the way to her all-female high school one day, she is worn-out climbing a hilly road with a bicycle, but she sees a girl named Onsa Amano who is riding a motorcycle. Sakura immediately becomes interested in motorcycles, and she and Onsa join the motorcycle club at the school. Then, Sakura sets out to get her license. (Source: ANN)



The second I saw Bakuon!! poster One Off came into mind. I really liked One Off OVA thus I decided to watch Bakuon!!. One Off was about the joy of riding a motorcycle/scooter. Bakuon is basically motorcycle porn 😛 jk. The anime focus a great deal on the motorcycles themselves, brand and specs wise. The characters are constantly fangirling over the motorbikes. The show also had some fun demonstration about each bike’s limit. I adore motorcycles so I very much enjoyed the anime. However, anime wise the show was average at best. The story is really boring even as a slice of life. If your not interested in motorbike you’ll get bored easily. The fan service heavily revolves around the bikes themselves. So the plot is weak and the animation was okay it wasn’t great. In all honesty though the show did have its funny moments so that covers the comedy. All in all if your not interested in motorbikes I don’t recommend you watch it.

Overall Rate: 6/10
