Yowamushi Pedal: Glory Line
Yowamushi Pedal: Glory Line is the fourth season of the fan-favorite Yowamushi Pedal anime franchise. Osamu Nabeshima (Saint Tail, D.Gray-man) returned to the director’s chair at TMS Entertainment, with Yukiko Ban (.hack//SIGN, Yowamushi Pedal (movie)) providing character designs. Kurasumi Sunayama (Bakuon!!, Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club) is in charge of series composition.
Crunchyroll describes the show as:
Protagonist Onoda Sakamichi’s team, Sohoku High School, won last year’s national tournament, the Inter-High. The upperclassmen who pulled the team have graduated. By inspiring, supporting, and lifting each other up, the new generation of team members won a ticket to the Inter-High and a chance at a repeat championship. Their rivals, Hakone Academy, former champions seeking to reclaim their crown, and Kyoto Fushimi, home to the monstrous racer Midousuji, have gathered at the race, where they’ll clash in a fierce battle for victory! Every racer carries his hopes and dreams in his heart. As sprinters who race along straight lines, climbers who are masters of the mountains, and aces who lead their teams to victory… The “GLORY LINE” is each racer’s finish line of honor and glory, but who will be the first to cross it?!
gdgd Men’s Party
gdgd Men’s Party is based on the CGI project gdgd Fairies. Series creator Sōta Sugahara (Hi-sCool! Seha Girls, gdgd Fairies 2) was tapped to direct gdgd Men’s Party, with Akira Isō providing character designs. Ryōichi Mori (100% Pascal-sensei) is in charge of series composition for the project.
