Yowamushi Pedal TV Anime Slated for October
posted on by Rae First
This year's 36th issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine is announcing on Thursday that that the television anime of Wataru Watanabe's Yowamushi Pedal manga will premiere this October.
The story centers around Sakamichi Onoda, a high school otaku who loves figures from anime and games so much that he would ride his commuter bicycle to and from Tokyo's Akihabara shopping district in a 90-kilometer (about 60-mile) round trip over steep slopes. Onoda ends up joining the competitive sport of bicycle racing.
Watanabe launched the manga in the magazine in 2008, and the story already inspired stage plays.
