Horikita Maki - Bicycle adventures in Europe Screen Caps

A pretty girl riding a bike through Europe, what’s not to like. It gets even better when the pretty girl is Horikita Maki (Densha Otoko, Nobuta wo Produce). Maki must be the busiest of Japanese stars, this summer she had her hit series Hanazakari no Kimitachi e then in September she starred in the special Deru Toko Demasho!, a couple of weeks ago she stared in the special Love Stories IV, she was also starring in the movie sequel to Always - Sunset on Third Street. In the middle of all that she found time to go to Europe and bike 200 kilometers through the countryside and release this lovely travelogue. I thought she was going to be killed as she hesitantly traversed the first intersection but she made it the whole way and looked like she had a great time doing it. It’s billed as her last great teenage adventure as she’ll turn twenty next year. I enjoyed the whole ride mainly along bike paths but when she interacts with the locals she really shines, loved the scene when she gets directions from the German kids and also when she’s playing the church pipe organ. Lots of screen shots of the hour and a half special below.

Download the HQ RAW video bit torrent file here. I doubt this will ever get subbed but it really doesn’t matter it fact reading the subs would just distract you from seeing the beautiful country side. When is coming to North America for a ride? I’m so jealous.

I just love this hat!

I read Ran is looking for translators to translate/sub this special:

That would be great, I'd love to see it subbed, There's not a real lot of dialog so hopefully some Maki fan who can speak Japanese will agree to do it,
