Welcome to a (terrible) VIVACIOUS PLACE! From time to time I draw so I guess that is one thing to look forward to?

I’m not sure if this was intentional on Watanabe-sensei’s part or not, but when Fukutomi and Kinjou cross arms at the wrist to acknowledge their rivalry carrying them as far as it has it mirrors an actual cycling image from the 1986 Tour de France.

Despite being on the same team, Bernard Hinault (left) and Greg LeMond (right) intensely duked it out for the General Classification title that year. Hinault had won in 1985 with LeMond’s assistance, and in 1986 the team wished to create the opposite result. Hinault, however, repeatedly attacked, raising suspicions that he wanted the title all to himself (despite claiming he was trying to dissuade other teams from attacking). Finally, at the top of one of the most notorious climbs on the Tour, Alpe d’Huez, they crossed the line together, arms like this, with LeMond’s wheel just a bit in front (he took the stage) to show they were burying the hatchet. LeMond went on that year to become the first American to win the Tour de France (and now only American since somebody’s results have been nullified due to doping).

At any rate, I thought this was cool.
