Yowamushi Pedal Season 5 Episode 11 has just been released, and fans are already waiting for the next one. Yowamushi Pedal is a Japanese manga series that was later adapted into an anime with the same name. The writer and illustrator of the series is Wataru Watanabe. The first episode of the anime aired in October 2013, while its latest season, season 5 aired in October 2022. More than 20 million copies of the manga have been sold, making it one of the most popular mangas of all time.
Many people did not think that a simple anime about sports would do so well, but Yowamushi Pedal has proven them all wrong as the 5th season of the show airs. The story revolves around our protagonist named, Sakamichi Onoda. Being a fan of anime, video games, and more, Sakamichi Onoda joins the anime club so he can have someone to discuss his interests with, but he is crushed after learning that the club has disbanded since there were not enough members. He needed four new members to restart the club.
Ever since Onoda was a child, he used to ride his small but bulky bicycle for fun and daily transit. One day, while he was doing that, a much-respected professional cyclist named Shunsuke Imaizumi noticed him and made fun of him and his bicycle. However, he soon changed his stance when he saw Onoda riding the bicycle uphill with very little effort. Soon after, Onoda met another person, Naruko, who also noticed him for the same reason. Both try to convince Onoda to join the bicycle racing club at their school, and the story follows their dreams and passions.
