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, the 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.
