Following two television anime series, two compilation films, and an original film titled Spare Bike, Wataru Watanabe’s story about an otaku joining a high school cycling team sure isn’t doing bad with audiences. Now, not only does it have a live-action television series on the way, but also a third television anime titled Yowamushi Pedal NEW GENERATION.


NEW GENERATION might be coming in January, but we’ve already got the first five character designs for the show. Take a look:

Sakamichi Onoda


Shunsuke Imaizumi


Shokichi Naruko


Hajime Aoyagi


Junta Teshima


In NEW GENERATION, Junta Teshima serves as the captain of the team. The voice cast of the TV anime will be returning with Daiki Yamashita as Onoda, Kosuke Toriumi as Imaizumi, Jun Fukushima as Naruko, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Aoyagi, and Daisuke Kishio as Teshima.
