    Man, I can't even be assed to start this season, and forgot this was even a thing. My enthusiasm just got killed too much by the previous season.

    I keep reading the title as Glory Hole and thinking that this season is going to be a massive change in direction.

    The first episode was alright.
    It's always a bit weird to come back in the middle of a race, so most of the episode is reminder of what was going on at the end of last season, but I'm looking forward to the next episodes a bit because Naruko and Imaizumi are going to be featured. I just find the old cast more interesting than most of the new characters, so I'll be glad to watch some old faces go all out.

    Episode 1
    So there is one of the team saying "niku" which is meat and that's what it is in the manga but the anime has changed it to "muscle" which kind of lessons the creepy factor. Still, I'm kinda glad the Streetfighter esque cycle anime is back, even if the positions some of the riders take are pretty ridiculous, like the head over the front wheel or down towards the side and the ground. I dunno..anyways here it is.

    Episode 1

    Was I the only one that was grossed out by Kuroda's jelly muscles? They were weird af

    Actually "kinniku" means muscle, so he might have said "niku" just to shorten it (and given his muscle fetish it fits him more to say muscle than meat)

    Episode 2
    Imazumi and Naruko make for an interesting if chaotic team. Mostly arguing all the time, throwing off the enemy team I guess, although if anyone knows them best it should be Hakone I would think. Also Naruko and some of the others with the over stylized combo like names for their techniques is ridiculous. And then there is Kyoto-Fushimi, I dont even know where to start with that, except, Zaku.

    I think I just have to admit that I'm over this show. If
    Midousuji and Naruko racing for the finish line isn't enough to get me excited anymore, then I don't know what will. It's not like the show is suddenly doing something different. I think I'd appreciate things more if it were doing something different. Watching this episode all I could think is I'm tired of Midousuji's usual shtick and listening to Naruko ramble on about being flashy for the millionth time has lost its appeal. The simple characters were part of the show's charm, but now it seems the show has run out of interesting things to do with them.

    The new characters are hardly interesting enough to warrant a mention. Cat Legs tearing up his shoulders to on the corners and then violently crashing was too over the top even for this show. In the first season a bad crash like that left Kinjou seriously injured.

    It's just the same thing over and over again at this point.

    Seeing Hakone bastards win every single race sickens me. This season is really getting boring.

    Episode 22

    Boy those were the longest 50 mts of my life

    I just hope we are already over with the unnecessary backstories or else another season would be needed just to cover the last day of the Inter-High :seriously:

    Manami wearing that "Best Boy" hat that Sakamichi's mom gave him will never get old.

    With as many problems as I have with this series since it progressed into the second year, I have to say god it has some amazing charm and hype. The characters are just so damn quirky and loveable, and they give the series so much life. And in the big moments we almost get Dragon Ball levels of yelling and poor pacing. But even so, I just couldn't tear myself away from it, it's like a drug.

    This show really knows how to hit all the right notes.
    4.5/5. Better than New Gen, but not as good as the first two seasons.

    Aaaand I finally remembered that I had stalled this show after 3 episodes for reasons others have mentioned already. Just dropped it and in no way feel like I'm missing something.

    That, it surely did.

    Midosuji's victory speech really made me laugh.

    I hope we will see a new season.
