About the Yowamushi Pedal franchise

The anime is inspired by the eponymous manga by Wataru Watanabe, which started in 2008 and is still ongoing. Akita Shoten is publishing the series; so far, there are 78 tankōbon volumes. Yowamushi Pedal is serialized in Weekly Shōnen Champion under the Shōnen Champion Comics label.

Mangaka Watanabe is also the creator of the spin-off series titled Yowamushi Pedal: Spare Bike, which started in 2012.

Yowamushi Pedal has inspired a whole slew of adaptations, including multiple anime series, films, a live-action drama, a video game, a live-action movie, and numerous stage plays.

In fact, Yowamushi Pedal stage plays (16, in total, with another one being in production) have been around far longer than the anime series and celebrated their 10th anniversary in May 2022.

The first stage play premiered at Tokyo’s Galaxy Theatre on February 1, 2012, and the latest, Yowamushi Pedal: The Cadence!, premiered at Tokyo Theater 1010 on July 5, 2022, and Cool Japan Park Osaka on July 16, 2022.

Yowamushi Pedal follows an otaku named Sakamichi Onoda who originally intends to join the school’s anime club upon entering high school. However, he discovers that the club has been disbanded due to a lack of interest. Thinking about finding four more members to establish the club, Onoda is spotted riding his bicycle by two fellow students (Shunsuke Imaizumi and Shōkichi Naruko). The two are impressed by his cycling skills and plan to convince him to join the school’s bicycle racing club.

The Yowamushi Pedal manga series is licensed by Yen Press.
