    Yowamushi No Pedal

    Anyone watched this anime? It has a 2nd season, I watched it first and 2nd season and it's been pretty good.
    What do you guys think of the MC?

    Otaku Sakamichi Onoda has just entered high school and plans to join the anime club. In middle school, Onoda didn’t have any friends with whom he could talk about anime, games, Akihabara and other otaku things, and he is hoping he can make such friends in the anime club, but he finds out it's been disbanded. In order to reestablish the club he tries to find 4 other people who would like to join.

    Since he was a little boy, Onoda has ridden his mamachari—a bulky bicycle with a step-through frame mainly used for short rides, such as for casual fun or to pick up groceries—to go to Akihabara every week to check out or buy otaku things. Fellow freshman Shunsuke Imaizumi and bicyclist, while training, notices a boy (Onoda) riding his mamchari up a steep road.

    Freshman and road racing cyclist, Shokichi Naruko visits Akihabara to get some Gundam plastic models for his younger brothers and meets Onoda who catches his attention because of the his cycling skill on the mamachari and later find out they go to the same school. Later on, both Naruko and Imaizumi try to convince him to join the bicycle racing club, but will he?

    I've heard about this and it's moderately hyped, but don't know if I should pick it up.

    It's good. It's a sports anime without superpowers, all about nakama power.

    Just finished the third episode and I like this. MC's a pretty odd but likable dude. Hard not to root for him. I like how his interest in cycling is developing.

    Give the first episode a try. It's a nice lighthearted watch.

    Season two's been having some bumps but it's been pretty damn great so far. B+ series overall for me thus far.

    Sprinters are my favourite type.

    What was your favourite race? Mine are the the first years vs the second years at the training camp, and the climax of day 1.

    Finished both seasons. Great anime. Really liked Hakone Academy (apart from Manami) and Midousuji. He and Shinkai were my favourite characters. The finishes to Day 1 and 2 of the inter high were real intense too.

    I've caught up with the manga too now.

    I want more people to talk to about this.

    @Riki; @DoflaMihawk;

    Genuinely think you guys would enjoy this. It took me a while to like the characters but they're great. Midousuji is the GOAT. Such an interesting character. I would love him and Hiruma to meet. They're similar in a sense, but they'd insult the hell out of each of other.

    And then the races when they get serious are amazing.
