Rinkai! Project About Women's Cycling Gets Anime, Manga

Umino Kawamura, Azusa Aoi star in project about female bicycle racers

The "Rinkai! Project Unveiling" panel at mixi_anime's AnimeJapan 2023 booth announced on Saturday that an anime adaptation and a manga series have been green-lit. The project follows the competitive world of women's bicycle racing.


The story centers on the sport of women's cycling, which debuted in Japan shortly after World War II. However, organized competitions folded after just 15 years and laid dormant for several decades. Then the Rinkai League launched to revive the sport.

The manga will launch on the Manga Bang! service this year, but the staff has not announced the anime's launch date.

The cast for the project includes:

Umino Kawamura as Izumi Itō

Azusa Aoi as Nana Hiratsuka

The project will launch a streaming program on YouTube in late April, and the staff teases more characters will be unveiled.
