It’s been a minute, but it’s time to hit the cycling circuit once more.
Yesterday, Toei Animation unveiled a new teaser trailer for Yowamushi Pedal: Glory Line‘s second cour. The minute-long promo uses character dialogue to convey the major plot beats, as opening theme song Dancing by Saeki YouthK plays as a background track.
Yowamushi Pedal: Glory Line returns to Japanese TV on May 28.
The series 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.
Saeki YouthK will perform opening theme song Dancing. Route85 (“route Hako”), which consists of six cast members, will perform closing theme song Over the Limit.
Crunchyroll is streaming the title as it airs, and describes it 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?!
