Marvelous' official website for the stage play adaptations of Wataru Watanabe's Yowamushi Pedal manga announced on Friday that the series is inspiring a 14th stage play in Tokyo and Osaka in February 2020.
The 13th stage play, Yowamushi Pedal: Shin Interhigh-hen: Limit Breaker (New Interhigh Arc: Limit Breaker; pictured right), ran at Theatre 1010 in Tokyo from May 10-19, and at Namikiri Hall in Osaka from May 25-26.
Wataru Watanabe launched the original Yowamushi Pedal manga in Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine in 2008. The story of the original 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. Yen Press is releasing the manga in English.
The first season of the television anime premiered in 2013. The second season premiered in Japan in 2014 and ended in March 2015. Yowamushi Pedal New Generation, the series' third season, premiered in January 2017. Yowamushi Pedal Glory Line, the fourth season, premiered in January 2018. Crunchyroll streamed all four seasons as they aired.
