For those unfamiliar with the Netflix anime, the sports-focused series is about a young boy who gets drawn into a school cycling club, where his new friends help him face tough challenges to develop his racing talent.

While at school, a fellow freshman, and much more serious cyclist, named Shunsuke Imaizumi notices Onoda riding his bike and mocks him.

Another student named Naruko visits Akihabara and meets Onoda, who catches his attention because of his cycling skill as well.
