Kandagawa Jet Girls Title 2

Rin and Misa find themselves in a thrilling jet race. They may not win, but the excitement might just be enough to get Misa to take the sport seriously again. If nothing else, they’ve been noticed!

Kandagawa Jet Girls (Episode 2) – The Ace’s Pride

What happened?

The race came down to the final stretch of water and it was anyone’s to win. However, Manpuku took her time and landed a killer shot that cut the power to their jetski. They lost, but that didn’t matter to Rin, that was the most fun she’d had in ages. In truth, it looked like Misa had a good time too. Misa asked Rin why she didn’t use the boost function to which Rin confessed that she didn’t know how. They could have won if she did!

Rin was determined to book some more time on the Kandagawa so that they could practice more, however, only official clubs can book time and her school doesn’t even have a club. So, that’s the first thing she needs to take care of. She manages to convince a teacher to be the club sponsor using her powers of cuteness. It even works on a friend, but she needs at least five to form a club. Misa says she may know someone…

What did you think?

They started the episode by explaining the rules for the race and the various safety precautions and to be fair it was done in a very funny way. The idea that the wetsuit will purge itself to protect the rider is hilarious and the way they told us was even better. Still, it’s nice to know how things work. The race was a lot of fun and I can’t wait until we’re in something bigger with more competitors. That’s going to be a blast. I’m watching the dubbed version for the benefit of screenshotting and I think the accent they’ve chosen for Rin is really annoying. I get that she’s a country girl, but did she need a southern drawl? This is in Japan, it really wasn’t that necessary. A few simple word choices would have worked and been far less out of place.
