Anime News Network : Taira Kappeita, or Capeta, was a 4th grader boy. He had lost his mother when he had been very little. Although he pretended to be tough in front of his father, actually he felt lonely. One day, his father brought junk parts home from his workplace and made a racing cart. Soon, they went to a circuit to drive the cart. However, Capeta found that its frame was bent and it could hardly run straight. But, with his technique he managed the cart.
There are two things a person fears, those are death and embarrassment. Those who try to overcome death are just idiots. But i won’t laugh at those who try to overcome their embarrassment, i like those kinds of idiots. Straighten yourself up and go, go ahead and embarrass yourself. If you embarrass yourself you’ll surely grow strong. (Capeta)
Cut the wind and become the wind, As though to Break Out. Kick away the hesitant yesterdays, When eternity meets with an instant, I feel an awakening desire.
(Opening theme song – Capeta)
