The official website for the Cycle Mode International 2016 event revealed that the anime of Noriyuki Matsumoto's Minami Kamakura Kōkō Joshi Jitensha-Bu (Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club) manga is slated to debut in January. Matsumoto confirmed the premiere date on his official Twitter account on Saturday.
Susumu Kudo (Mardock Scramble: The First Compression, Dear Boys) is directing the upcoming anime, and Kurasumi Sunayama (Bakuon!!, scripts on Yowamushi Pedal) is writing the script.
The story begins with Hiromi Maiharu, a girl who moved from Nagasaki to Kamakura. She begins her new life in Kamakura and her first day in high school by bicycling to her school, but she has not ridden a bicycle since she was young. On the way to the ceremony for the first day, she meets Tomoe Akitsuki, and Tomoe helps her train to be better at bicycling.
Matsumoto launched the manga in Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Blade magazine in 2011, and the eighth compiled volume shipped in Japan in April. The series inspired a drama CD and original song that shipped with the second volume.
