For prior conversation in anticipation of the show, see /forumtopic-921879/yowamushi-pedal-season-3-anticipation




Synopsis

Onoda Sakamichi is a rather timid, anime-loving first-year student at Sohoku High School. Upon entering high school, he tried to join the anime research club, but after meeting Imaizumi Shunsuke, a renowned cyclist since middle school, and Naruko Shoukichi, who swept the Kansai cycling championship, he ended up joining the competitive cycling club.

Guessing were getting a recap of the movie. Nothing bad, but at the same time nothing great. Although Teshima and Aoyagi definitely got stronger.

So glad that Yowamushi Pedal is back! It would be a little weird if they did show the Yowamushi Pedal Movie. Timeline sense it might make sense but it'd feel out of place for me. The 1st two seasons were about a long buildup for the Inter-High. That movie's race was fairly quick and wouldn't really flow well into the rest of the season. Got to say, their new bikes look amazing.

On a side note, it feels really rare to see a sports anime continue after the team has accomplished their goal (winning the Inter-High). I guess it'll be interesting to see Sohoku as the favorites and everyone gunning for them.

but I am happy the Yowamushi Pedal is back

Yowamushi Pedal New Generation EP 1 The Last Minegayama

Starting out very good ! The 3rd years are done and Kinjou / Tadokoro assign Teshima and Aoyagi as Capt / co Capt and are quite strong as they are older and training hard and are aware the team is now a target as the # 1 team.

Onoda mom was funny



Touji fixes tricks out Imaizumi bike with a battery powered gear changer and upgrades then scares Onada when ge asks for his bike but gives him a hot carbon fiber model



Naruko has trick wheels / tires to let him sprint better !

The sad thing is that Makishima is leaving the country to go to an English school and wont finish at Sohoku High he sees Onada with his new bike (who just got done training ) and asks to ride with him ( His last ride up the hill ) which Onada who first says no but sees Makishima sad so he goes again!



Later Teshima and Aoyagi are outpacing Imaizumi / Naruko while Onada is far behind! Kinjou / Tadokoro are still concerned about Onada even as observers

I'm guessing the movie (or at least the second half) isn't canon. Makishima is on his way to England. Were going to get some action next week. Lets see how Teshima old teammate handles Onada.

Great second ep, the first ep was a set up so I wont really comment on it...but man Yowa is back. Im very very impressed with Teshima, this development he's gotten is excellent and it will be intersting to see how him and Aoyagi impact this season.


Only thing I will say I'm disappointed with is Onoda, like....whatever is happening to him is lame. Dude you won the freaking Interhigh, I understand hes in a different position now that the third years are gone but good grief, this is an extreme overreaction. And honestly it feels like repetitive character development for him. I know he misses Makishima but this it just feels like character regression.

I think Onoda would be more composed if he had taken part in more races. Unless I'm remembering wrong, Onoda's first and only race is the Inter High. This a big contrast to Imaizumi and Naruko. Both had plenty of racing experiences prior to Sohoku.

With Makishima gone and no other climber, he feels an immense pressure. Teshima is trying to be a climber, but Onoda doesn't know that. In this episode, Teshima even stated that Onoda was their only climber. There's also the pressure of being more popular as the winning cyclist. The third years were instrumental in calming down and inspiring Onoda. Teshima's just starting to develop a similar role. Though I do agree that Onoda is overreacting. But its better for him to freak out now and work through that, rather than the Inter High later on.

I'm most curious as to who'll fill the 6th slot on Sohoku.

There is one thing I can't stand in anime and that is slow character development and regression. After reading those 2 comments i don't even want to watch the 2nd ep now. Reasons why I disliked the lead guy from hitman reborn when it aired years ago and the lead from hero academia. Slowwwwww character development and them always being soooooo timid.

While I am frustrated with Onoda and I dont know where they are taking his character(though the guy below me makes some solid points) he's never been the main draw of this show for me. I mean even in my post I said it was a great ep, even if you are frustrated with MC theres ALOT of other good characters to see in the show besides him.



Also Hero Academia MC is fine the way he is imo, he maybe timid, but when it matters he isnt, he's also a pretty smart kid as well.

Finally his balls get bigger in the race. Onoda records fastest climb on Mt Fuji race in history yet he needs motivation? I get they need it to be dramatic but Onoda is a stud should beat the Giant no matter how much the guy flings his body.
