On the official Twitter account for the animated adaptation of the light novels written by Tone Koken and illustrated by Hiro, Super Cub, a special illustration was shared to commemorate the broadcast of the eighth episode of the series. The illustration stars the character Shii Eniwa, who debuted in the previous episode, and was done by Kanitan, who is in charge of the manga adaptation.
It should be noted that the artist has previously shared illustrations to celebrate the broadcasts of the previous episodes of the series.

Super Cub Synopsis
Koguma, a reserved sophomore in high school, has nothing: she has no parents, hobbies, friends, or goals. On the way home one afternoon, she visits a vehicle store in hopes of getting a scooter. With just enough money to make ends meet, her price tags put her off and she prepares to return. However, when she is about to leave, the store owner offers her a used Honda Super Cub for ten thousand yen. Believing the motorcycle will help light up her drab world, she accepts the deal. As Koguma travels through her town on little adventures with her Super Cub, she begins to build irreplaceable friendships and enthusiastically moves toward her new life.
