posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Yowamushi Pedal Glory Line, the Yowamushi Pedal anime series' fourth season, began streaming the show's second promotional video on Sunday. The video previews rock band Rhythmic Toy World's opening theme song "Boku no Koe" (My Voice).
The video also reveals the show's January 8 premiere date. The series will air on TV Tokyo and TV Osaka at 2:05 a.m. (effectively January 9), before later airing on TV Aichi, TV Setouchi, TV Hokkaido, TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting, NBC Nagasaki Broadcasting, and AT-X.
The new season's story will begin from the Inter High competition.
The story of the original Yowamushi Pedal manga centers around 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.
Wataru Watanabe launched the original manga in Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine in 2008, and the story has also inspired stage plays and live-action television series. The first season of the anime premiered in 2013. The second season premiered in 2014, followed by the third season in January. Crunchyroll streamed all three seasons outside Japan as they aired.
The franchise's most recent anime film, Yowamushi Pedal Re:Generation, opened in Japan on October 13. The compilation film incorporates footage from the third anime season with some new shots.
