New cycling Anime: Yowamushi Pedal!

A new cycling anime called Yowamushi Pedal has just been released on YouTube! The anime series according to Wikipedia is released on 2008 as a magna(think of it as a comic book series) and now its on video.

According to episode 1, it portrays Sakamichi Onoda as an anime nerd who does not have the intention to join a sports club due to his huge love for anime. However, he is seen climbing well up a steep slope near his school with a market bike, and can even keep up with Shunsuke Imaizumi, a cyclist who have been training since young. How we ever feel when we are smoked or is amazed by some guy on a crap bike but yet is able to keep up.

Overall from the first episode, I think the developers have done enough work modelling the bikes, and equipment after some popular cycling brands around the work (I spotted a DA 7900 crank in anime in the opening theme and trek and scott! Obviously misspelled to avoid a copyright issue but the resemblance is uncanny) Waiting eagerly for the second episode!

The anime can be watched here . Cant wait for the second episode
