UPDATE: Episode number corrected.
This season's Yowamushi Pedal LIMIT BREAK will be putting on the brakes again... but just for a week.
It was announced alongside the most recent broadcast that the next episode—episode 9—will be delayed to make way for a broadcast of the World Cup quarter-finals. The episode will air the following week in its usual time slot on December 18.
