Bodacious Space Pirates artist's story of girl who picks up bicycling again

The wraparound jacket band on Noriyuki Matsumoto's seventh Minami Kamakura Kōkō Joshi Jitensha-Bu (Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club) manga volume announced on Monday that an anime adaptation is in the works.

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. The seventh compiled book volume shipped on Monday with a clear file featuring an exclusive illustration. Matsumoto previously drew the illustrations in the Mini-Skirt Uchū Kaizoku (Mini-Skirt Space Pirates) light novel series that inspired the Bodacious Space Pirates television anime.
