Yowamushi Pedal Episode #01 – 13 Anime Review

Based on the manga by Wataru Watanabe, Yowamushi Pedal is one of the latest lengthy sports series to debut. The original work is still ongoing in manga form since it began in Weekly Shonen Champion back in 2008 with over thirty volumes in print now and no sign of slowing down. Planned for thirty-nine episodes, Yowamushi Pedal is animated by TMS Entertainment and it hits a lot of familiar marks for a sports series. Every genre has its own particular quirks that it wants to work with and this one is no exception. The difference of course is that this one is about road racing bikes competitively in high school. We’ve seen a lot of different sports series and I love that they can always bring in something new along the way as I can’t recall having seen one in this particular genre before.

Yowamushi Pedal Episode #08 Anime Review

Things get  incredibly  interesting in this episode. We see some character background, some character development, and the Welcoming Race for the bicycle club heats up as the racers reach the summit of the hellish mountain course! Naruko attempts to push himself up the mountain slope but eventually falls behind Imaizumi, as he is a sprinter and not a climber. Onoda falls back to ride with Naruko, but he insists that Onoda race to the top and become King of the Mountain, a special title awarded to a racer who reaches the summit of a mountain first. He gives Onoda a pep talk, and tells him “I’m giving you my spirit” and urges him to beat Imaizumi to the top. Onoda eventually, with only 500 meters to the summit left, ends the episode by closing the gap and rides neck and neck with Imaizumi.
