On the official Twitter account for the animated adaptation of the light novels written by Tone Koken and illustrated by Hiro, Super Cub, different illustrations were shared to commemorate the broadcast of the twelfth and final episode of the series. The first was made by the independent artist Maruyo.
The second was done by Hiro, who is the artist of the original light novels and also the author of the manga Akebi-chan no Sailor-fuku (Akebi’s Sailor Uniform), which will soon inspire an animated adaptation.
On the other hand, the series aired in Japan during the Spring-2021 season (April-June) and had a total of twelve episodes, while the Funimation platform is responsible for its distribution in the West. Koken and Hiro have published the light novels through Kadokawa Publishing’s Sneaker Bunko imprint since May 2017. A manga adaptation by Kanitan has been published through Comic Newtype magazine since December 2017.

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 shop 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.
