Heartwarming: Yowamushi Pedal

  • When Onoda mentions during his race with Imaizumi that I Just Want to Have Friends.
  • When Tadokoro hugs Aoyagi and Teshima after they collapse during the 1000km challenge, telling them how proud he is of them, also counts as a tearjerker.
  • Onoda being showered with affection by his teammates after he wins the Interhigh is sweet overall, but special mention should go to him getting an enthusiastic hug from Makishima.
  • After the Inter-High Onoda wants to express his gratitude to his senpai and takes them to, of all places, Akibahara where he buys each of them a present.
    • It doubles as a Crowning Moment of Funny when Onoda doesn't just buy Makishima one gift but ten times the same thing. He's just so grateful to Makishima for helping him and teaching him.
