As the track announcer called it, that Silence Suzuka's tragedy is widely remembered by Japanese fans as Chinmoku no Nichiyobi (Silent Sunday).
But she (he) survives in this anime.


Thanks for the reminder...I'm up to Ep. 4.....

It was out last week on Crunchyroll and I was really stressed out because I didn't know how it would play out for her. There was foreshadowing that something would happen to her, and I was worried she'd meet the same fate as the real Silence Suzuka.
But Spe-Chan saved the day thankfully!

It did make me go back and watch some of Silence Suzuka's real races, there was something that defied comprehension about how he would just take the lead and keep on widening then you'd think he was hitting his plateau and he'd widen again. A perfect, sublime running machine.

While we fans haven't heard anything official about Rainbow Line's status after his injury and detailed examinations, his name remains in the JRA's fans balloting list for the Takarazuka Kinen.
No one believes that he will be ready to run in the Takarazuka Kinen in June at this point as he must still be under follow-up observations.
But we may at least think that his injury has not yet been judged as career-ending.

Thanks for the update tachyon, crossing my fingers he makes a full recovery even if it isn't in time for June.
