Currently, the anime “Super Cub”, which is based on motorcycles, is attracting attention. As you can see from the title, this work has become a hot topic due to the cooperation of Honda, the manufacturer of Super Cub. Currently, it seems that a scene in an anime work is controversial online. It seems that not only anime fans but also motorcycle enthusiasts are interested in the content.
What is “Super Cub”?
Before the topical event, I would like to briefly introduce the anime “Super Cub”.
The original is the light novel “Super Cub” published in Sneaker Bunko.
As introduced on official Twitter, the story is that the main character, a girl, grows up as a result of her encounter with Honda’s Super Cub 50.
As you can imagine from the title “Super Cub”, this work is also attracting attention because it is produced in cooperation with Honda.
Against this background, not only anime fans but also motorcycle enthusiasts were interested even before the start of the broadcast.
Two-seater scene in anime is controversial
In the sixth episode of such an anime Super Cub, it has been pointed out that there is a problem with the scene of “two-seater on a moped”, which is controversial.
Even if it is a moped, if it is the second type, the two-seater itself is not a violation.
However, this time, it seems that there is a conflict with the part that “a person who has been licensed for a normal motorcycle for less than one year must not drive a normal motorcycle with a person other than the driver on board.” is.
A common reaction is that it’s fiction, so there’s no problem. Certainly, Initial D and the Gulf were amazing works in many ways. It’s interesting though.
However, in reality, it seems that there are not many fictions about cars and motorcycles that do not violate any violations, whether good or bad.
However, on the other hand, it is pointed out that “it is a work that conveys the charm of motorcycles and violations are bad” and “Honda is cooperating in some parts and should be more careful than ordinary animation”.
I don’t think this will work negatively for anime and Honda, but I wonder if it is necessary to consider various parts because it is a work that attracts attention.
