Takane no Jitensha

The story behind Takane no Jitensha was, apparently, the best submission of the 2007 Animax Awards. Watching the roughly 24 minute one-shot, it felt like A-1 was merely honouring an obligation. On the other hand, “best” could mean “whatever can be done quickest and cheapest.”

Given that they play into each other, it’s probably a bit of both.

But at least Maaya got the role of title character, limited as even that was.
