Australia's Madman Ent. Plans Yowamushi Pedal Film DVD Release

posted on by Karen Ressler

Australian anime distributor Madman Entertainment confirmed on Saturday that, in addition to releasing the Yowamushi Pedal film in theaters, it will also release the film on DVD.

The theatrical release is slated for December 5 and 6 in Australia and New Zealand. The film opened in Japan on August 28.

Original manga artist Wataru Watanabe wrote the new story for the film:

[Highlight white text to read spoilers for the earlier manga and television anime] After winning the fierce Inter High race, Sakamichi and the other Sōhoku team members receive an invitation to compete in the Kumamoto Hi Province Mountain Range Race toward the end of summer. The top-tier teams from around the country compete in this race, including Sōhoku's rivals Hakone Academy (which yearns to take down Sōhoku), Kyoto Fushimi, and Hiroshima Kureminami — as well as Kumamoto Daiichi High School's team led by Shin Yoshimoto.

On the stage of Kumamoto Prefecture's Mount Aso, the curtain rises for the "final race" of Sōhoku team led by Kinjō.
