Wataru Watanabe’s Yowamushi Pedal is going to begin its third season in January 2017.
To promote the new season, a spin-off movie titled Yowamushi Pedal SPARE BIKE will be released in the movie theaters for a limited period of time. This movie explores the past of a third-grade Yusuke Makishima and Jinpachi Todo. A comical mini spin-off story titled Soreike Arakitakun will also be screened as a bonus part. We found out that Makishima’s story in the movie is going to be split in two different parts!
The first episode will explores the time when Makishima entered Sohoku high school. It was included in the first volume. The second is a very rare episode that we can only read in the bonus booklets of the second season Blu-ray & DVD limited editions (Vol 1 – 3).
Makishima is one of the show’s most popular characters. It will be interesting to see how he became the man he is in the anime, and what kind of struggles he had to go through.
Yowamushi Pedal SPARE BIKE will be screened from September 9 and for two weeks only.
The latest Blu-ray & DVD is scheduled to come out on November 16 (Wednesday) and it contains exciting bonus material such as Wataru Watanabe’s original comic booklet, design materials, and a storyboard.
