I have heard quite a lot about this manga/anime, and decided to check it out.

I am not sure if I will continue, while I did like the first volume, it was also still a sports manga and I was bored at times. So far I have only found a handful of sports manga or anime that I truly liked and enjoyed fully or at least most of it.

What also annoyed me was the exaggeration of everything, the way that nothing seems to match. I am not sure how to explain correctly, but really, the fact that someone just

I'm watching the anime for this at the moment and knew my brother had a copy he wasn't going to read so I took advantage of that fact and took it off his hands. I was a little disappointed to start off with as the manga style is different from the anime style so it took a while to adjust. Also as I went through the volume I realised that they had changed some things for the anime that I missed in the manga. An example would be that one of my favourite side characters does not exist in the manga ...more

I've only recently been introduced to Manga and Anime by my daughter who kindly lends me the books she thinks I will enjoy.

I find the art style a bit distracting in the "action" segments, however I do enjoy the way Manga artists develop characters and story lines. These translate well to the relevant Anime series.

I'll read some more, once they are available in the "lending library".

Good for practicing reading Japanese (読解), since the kanjis are always accompanied by furigana.

This is a fun little manga about a nerd (otaku) who hates jocks -thinks they are mean, scary and have no respect for others unlike them. Now this volume he is looking forward to joining the anime club and is on the search for more members when he is noticed by the cycling club and his skill on riding an old bike they call a mama bike and has no business being able to ride the way he can without the speed gauges that road or racing bikes have.

This was way better then I thought it was going to be

Aunque este tomo es prácticamente igual al anime, tiene pequeños detalles diferentes, y aunque ya tenía idea de cómo se iba a desarrollar ésta parte, aún resulta muy genial y divertido de leer.
Onoda me da mucha risa, a simple vista pareciera un personaje algo típico pero conforme avanza la historia nos damos cuenta de que resulta ser muy genial y diferente a lo que habíamos imaginado.
Imaizumi es otro de los protagonistas de esta historia, centrado en ser el mejor ciclista se la pasa entrenando c

Sakimichi Onoda is an otaku. He make the ninety-kilometer round trip to Akihabara more than a few times a week, and mommy bike too. As in, a women’s designed bike with a basket. Despite this, Sakamichi is a power-peddler. When his biking skills are notice I a serious first-year road racer, Imaizumi, Sakimichi is challenged to a rigorous bike race. Sakimichi has no interest in biking for sports, but when Imaizumi says he’ll join the anime club if Sakimichi wins, Sakimichi has something to race fo ...more

Standard affair: Social-invalid teenage protagonist has unknowingly fostered a skill throughout youth and now, off to a new highschool, that mysterious skill is spotted by someone else who in turn becomes first friend of awkward teenager and is followed by many others.

Same thing that you have either read a million times in manga, or have spotted a million times by reading just the first page.

Yowamushi Pedal is about bicycle racing; some good amounts of biking terms like "dancing," a substancial

I am loving this series so far. Not since Eyeshield 21 have I come across something where you find yourself cheering on the weak, sweet and innocent protagonist as he struggles to find his place in high school. Onoda just wants to join the manga club where he can make friends but for some reason or another, he keeps running into serious biker students. The first one he meets is the tall, serious and arrogant Izumi who's confident he will make it to the school cycling team. This series is well wr ...more

Imaizumi really should've joined the anime club. If he watched tons of sports anime, he would know not to underestimate the weak-looking ones. Speaking of weak-looking ones, Onoda's character turned out a lot better than expected. He's neither meek nor timid but rather is just a happy simpleton otaku who also gets shy sometimes. If there's something that I'm quickly hating about this manga, it's the girls. Srsly Kanzaki is starting to get on my neves and idk why. But guess I'll have to sort out ...more

The art style is a little rough, but unique, and that's what I like. The main character, Onoda, is cute and awkward. Don't know if I'd personally read the rest of it, since the sports genre isn't really my thing, but it does seem like it'd be worth a try if you do.

It's not bad, but it's not good either. There are better sports related anime/manga out there. Overall this volume was too slow paced for me, which is a particularly bad sign for a sports manga. I do like the main character and wish him well.

This was actually really fun and cute. I like our main character and the few other characters we saw. I wish we would have finished with the outcome of the race but I guess that means I'll have to continue on.

I received this manga in a loot crate anime box. I originally subscribed to the box to introduce myself to more anime, and I definitely will watch this anime. I have grown to love sports anime. I want to see who wins the race!

This manga had a really good story line. When I first started reading it I wasn't sure what to expect. I plan on reading the other 3 of these my local library has too. Oh, and I checked out the Yowamushi Pedal anime yesterday; I haven't watched yet.

I really liked this, and I'm not a big fan of manga. It has a lot of introductory details about road riding and racing, including why people enjoy it. I'm probably going to read the other volumes.

I have a soft spot for shonen sports manga and YowaPeda's become my most favorite recently. I've seen the anime first so I'm just trying to catch up to the current manga release.
