Yowamushi Pedal (Weak Pedals) is a sports-themed shounen manga by Wataru Watanabe. It has been published in the Weekly Shounen Champion since February 2008 and some people have been waiting a long time to read this news – there will be a TV anime series based on the manga.
The story of Yowamushi Pedal centres on the true otaku Sakamichi Onoda who is just starting his first year as a high school student. Hopeful that he will be finally able to talk and discuss anime and manga as much as he wants with the other members of the school’s anime club, he is more than dissatisfied when he understands that this very club has been disbanded. His new quest would be to find at least four other students who would want to join the club anew, so that it would be reestablished.
At the same time, his incredible skills with the bike have been noticed by two of his new schoolmates and they both will try to get him to join the bicycle club.
More details on the anime project will be released in 2013 as promised by the publisher!
