Description:
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 mamachari 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?

This manga can stupid sometimes, but this is really good.
I really like, the "I'm a man" spirit, something like that from this one.
It's actually better than overrated Kuroko no Basuke, well yeah every sports manga has their own style so this one is no exception.

Hi.
Wanted to comment just to let you know that I did not translate (for my french scantrad team , J-Garden) the vol.48 (and soon the vol.49) from japanese.
I just took the official french translation from Crunchyroll and adapted the translation in the bubbles because the animation is very faithful to the manga.
So, somes minor dialogues (espacially with the spectators of the road race) were invented or made by google japanese translate but overall there is nothing wrong.

If the english team did not think of this idea, it can do the same method. But the real issue will be with the Vol.50 were it will be obvious that will we need a japanese translator because it is beyond the season 4 of the animation.

Seems like there are no new chapters past season 4 anime content? :(

I read the first chapter about three days ago, and I've caught up to the last chapter. I didn't really think much of this spokon, but it's not bad at all. The drawings aren't high class, but they kinda work well with the story. Too bad that the anime's going to stop in a few weeks. Looking forward to the next chapters, both in Japanese and English languages!

@nanisore yay! :DDDD

I read the translations up to 407 or whatever and if the scanlation had to stop right there I think I would have died (well, it's less dire since the current anime season is going on, BUT SERIOUSLY IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A PROBLEM).

ahh it seems i forgot to delete that page when I joined the spread.

Don't worry, we are working with a new translator so we will be able to advance further from sleeping dragons's version!

Hey, for 401, did you mean to upload both image 20 and image 21? (20 is one page of the two-page spread that's 21.)

Aren't there only a few more chapters of translations left, now? D:

Onoda was very cute this chapter! :3

ahhh fixed it! should be fine by now.
pedal anime covers about 3 chapters per episode so I'm trying to release chunks of 3-4 to avoid being catched up but sometimes life happens. (Ive been super busy drawing for hakogaku anthology these past days)
Avatar
lol, after the previous update, I was thinking that if 3 chapters were uploaded at a time we could still stay ahead/on track with the anime. Ganbatte! XD

EDIT: ah, 385 was named differently so it's out of order.
