Crunchyroll Streams Yowamushi Pedal Grande Road Sequel Anime

posted on by Karen Ressler
1st episode premieres Monday

Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Friday that it will stream the Yowamushi Pedal Grande Road sequel anime. The first episode will premiere on Monday, October 6 at 1:30 a.m. EDT for premium members and one week later for free members. The stream will be available in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, South Africa, and Central and South America.

The following cast and staff are working on the second season:

Wataru Watanabe's Yowamushi Pedal (Yowapeda) manga follows Sakamichi Onoda, an otaku at Sōhoku High School. He loves 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 after school. Onoda's life changes when he encounters his school's cycling team, and he ends up joining the competitive sport of bicycle racing.

The television anime premiered last October, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime outside of Japan as it aired. A compilation film, Yowamushi Pedal: Re:RIDE, played in a limited two-week engagement from September 19 to October 2 in 10 Japanese theaters. It compiles the first half of the Inter High arc from the first television anime season with some cuts of new footage added. The second season of the anime will pick up where the first left off in the Inter High arc.
