Yowamushi Pedal Season 5 Episode 18 is in full gear as the sports anime holds the reign this season, just behind Blue Lock. The bicycle sports anime belongs to the time of almost two decades ago, back when anime and manga were not as popular as today. Due to that, the anime is a little different than the ones that were released in the last five years. It does not have as much energy as them, but, it is much more sincere in its storytelling.
The fifth season has Onoda going on a new level in the world of bicycle racing clubs. He has entered this world thanks to the friends he made in high school that saw his talent in the sport. Though the series first started as a comedy, it has long since evolved to the point of competitive sports anime. And due to this, Onada’s character is one of the most interesting ones among all sports anime protagonists. But his journey has just begun and the new competition pushes him to his limits. You could even say it forces him to break his limits.
Yowamushi Pedal Season 5 Episode 17 Recap
Yowamushi Pedal Season 5 Episode 17 had intense bicycle racing between Imaizumi and Midosuji. The two biking fanatics were going toe-to-toe, pedal-to-pedal against each other in the mountain terrain bicycling. Midosuji was on the offensive most of the time in the series as he was hungry for victory and thought less of Imaizumi. He was so eager to win that he even did a few fouls to make sure he stays ahead. And when he was at a critical point in the race, he broke Imaizumi’s balance and broke through.
Imaizumi had the test of victory in the last year, and that sensation had helped him in going forward. He knows what it means to be up ahead all alone, and the thrill of finishing first. Despite his caring nature, he left Onada behind to get ahead and have his fight with Midosuji. He wasn’t disheartened in the least by Midosuji’s attempt to break his form. Instead, when the slope ahead showed itself, he pushed himself and closed the distance between him and Midasuji. Midasuji was shocked but things turned in his favor once it started to rain.
