"Yowapeda - Spare Bike" Visual And Character Art Prepare For Fall's Prequel Anime Movie

Double movie with Yuusuke Makishima and Jinpachi Toudou's back stories opens September 9th

On September 9th, a Yowamushi Pedal - Spare Bike double movie, adapting Wataru Watanabe's spin-off/prequel about the back stories of the series' third-year cycling competitors, hits Japanese theaters for a limited, two-week run.

 

The two stories focus on Sohoku High School's Yuusuke Makishima, who, as a freshman, was ridiculed by the upper classmen for his unusual dancing-style technique and Hakone native Jinpachi Toudou, who, in junior-high, was too concerned about the condition of his hair to compete.

 

A third season of the TV anime is also planned for winter 2017.
