From the creator of Oh My Goddess! comes a manga dedicated to the thrilling world of motorcross!
Ages 16 and up.
THE GREAT EQUALIZER
Toppu faces off against his rival Takadai in his first race on a wet track, but a mishap on the track puts them both in last place. Each boy is trying to claw his way back into contention for the victory, but when it comes down to the last corner, who will have bested both his opponent and the road racer’s greatest enemy: the rain?
Series Overview: Toppu Uno never wanted to race motorcycles. He was perfectly content watching his sister ride—with his eagle eyes, he knew her lap times before the the stopwatch did. When he’s convinced to take a ride on a minibike for the first time, his hours of observation translate into instant skill on the track. But turning a quick lap and winning a race are two very different things, and Toppu’s got a long way to go before he’s ready for the big leagues—MotoGP, the highest level of two-wheeled road racing.
The new work by Kosuke Fujishima, whose Oh My Goddess! series was a bestseller in the U.S. for decades and had several successful anime adaptations.
Fujishima’s You’re Under Arrest also featured loads of car chases and had a successful classic anime adaptation.
