The first original feature film in the Yowamushi Pedal (Yowapeda) manga and anime franchise will open in Japan this summer. Manga creator Wataru Watanabe himself is drafting the original story for the movie’s scenario.
The original manga follows 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.
The television anime premiered in October 2013, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime outside of Japan as it aired. A compilation film, Yowamushi Pedal: Re:RIDE, played in a limited two-week engagement from September 19 to October 2 in 10 Japanese theaters last year. It compiled the first half of the Inter High arc from the first television anime season with some cuts of new footage added. The second season of the anime picked up where the first left off in the Inter High arc in October.
