A third season has been announced for TV anime series “Yowamushi Pedal”. Based on the manga series of the same name, published in Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shonen Champion since 2008, the series tells the story of bicycle-racing high school students.
The anime’s first season ran from 2013 to 2014, with a second season, titled “Yowamushi Pedal Grande Road”, airing from 2014 to 2015. The series ended being so popular in Japan that it was viewed as responsible for the recent boom in sales of racing bikes.
The first two seasons, as well as the three theatrical anime films released to date, focuses on main character Sakamichi Onoda’s first year of high school and his participation in the Inter-High bicycle race. The upcoming third season will pick up with the 27th volume of the manga series, which details his second year of high school.
Additional story, cast and crew details, as well as broadcast dates, will be revealed in the near future. The third season is currently rumored to debut next spring.
