Super Cub Episode 7: Third Cutie

Eagle eyed viewers noticed the third cutie pop up here and there throughout the show. The time has come for her proper introduction.

Reiko's new Hunter Cub

It was Fall and the cold weather was fast approaching. Everyone already felt it. At school Reiko arrived in her new Hunter Cub. Koguma noticed one of Reiko’s gloves had a hole.

Koguma pulls a petal from Reiko's hairIt’s not really anything to squee over but Koguma pulling a petal from Reiko’s hair and accepting it as “payment” for her complaining about the cold was nice.

ShiiDespite the cold weather there was growing energy around the school because of the upcoming culture festival. Koguma and Reiko’s class planned an Italian Bar with the third cutie, Shii Enuma, one of the people in charge of organizing it. First thing that surprised me was how short she was. Obviously she’s adorable. Reiko was a frequent customer of her family bakery thus they knew each other.

Koguma keeping Reiko on courseShii asked for volunteers to help decorate the cafe. Reiko considered it but Koguma was like “Let’s buy you a new glove first”. So assertive was she now that she didn’t allow Reiko to get distracted by bike parts. They couldn’t find what they’re looking for at the store so they searched online. Koguma again refused to let Reiko going ham over bike history distract her. Koguma has come a long way. So cool, so sassy.

Shii in troubleThe trio’s paths would cross again the next day. The class teacher had an important errand to run and couldn’t pick up the supplies at the neighboring school in time for preparations. Reiko and Koguma were on their way to have lunch but Koguma stopped when one of the boys said it’d be impossible to drive and deliver the supplies on motorbikes. Koguma accepted the challenge and volunteered the two to carry out the mission.

Cubs ready to goReiko didn’t like the trailer add-on messing her Hunter Bug’s style but Koguma wouldn’t have it. “Your Cub’s engine is stronger than mine so you’re carrying it.”

Afterward they presented Shii with a Texas saloon setup in case they fail the mission. They taught her the value of having a backup plan.

The teacher returnsThis lovely teacher only appeared in one episode before this but I like her. Good to see her again. We got to see more of Koguma’s assertiveness this scene.

Shii thanks Koguma and ReikoAfter a job well done the bar was a resounding success. Since everyone was busy Shii offered our heroines coffee as thanks for their good deed. She mentioned wanting to ride a motorbike too but felt was too scared and clumsy to do so. Koguma-Sensei offered her sage advice from experience. Seeing her in action Koguma got a much better impression of the short one.

Shii smileMust protecc.

Great debut by Shii! Next time we’ll learn more about her. Maybe she’ll join the Cub Buddies then?

  1. Super Cub just keeps getting better and better! The amount of character development going on, especially Koguma, is outstanding and wonderful! Such a quiet, warm hearted story, it is. This is one Biker Gang, I am probably going to fall in love with, bigtime! Looking forward to each new episode.

    Aww. I thought Koguma was short, but Shii is tiny even compared to her. So charming.

    Red suits Koguma really well. As does being so assertive with (her) Reiko ^^

    I have to admit that Shii is precious cinnamon bun. Still, I am quite surprised how much shorter she is compared to Koguma. Still, I wonder if she will actually gain the courage to ride a motor bike.

    • If Shii is the she of the OP, she is shown with a cub. They are certainly beating around the bush about who is the third member of the gang.

      • This is incorrect and wrong. Sorry about that! Went back and studied the OP, and Shii does not have any kind of cub or bike at the lookout point. As Koguma drives herself to this meeting, the only way Shii could have gotten there was to ride with Reiko. So no Cub, although she may get one before the series ends.

    that “catering delivery box” is mighty impressive, and I’d have loved to see a Texas saloon setup in any cultural festival.
