The popular bike racing series, Yowamushi Pedal, may be getting itself a movie. This is all thanks to an official movie listing made by one of Japan’s most well known cinema chains, Toho.
The movie is listed to air along with Rise of the Planet of the Apes which will be premiering on September 19, 2014. No other information has been made thus far other than the September 19 release date and it is still not known if this is an animated movie or a live action one.
Yowamushi pedal is based on Wataru Watanabe’s popular sports manga about otaku student Sakamichi Onoda who gets scouted into his school’s cycling team after a series of improbable feats in his mommy bike. The anime is set to have a second season this October 2014 as part of the Autumn 2014 anime season.
