Unable to achieve the desired results on the first and second days of the Inter-High competition, members of the Souhoku High Bicycle Racing Club use their frustration as motivation to perform better on the final day of the race. However, it is easier said than done as they are up against the overwhelming talent of Hakone Academy and the shrewd strategies of Kyoto Fushimi High.

Despite the challenge, Souhoku members are not disheartened by the obstacles that they need to overcome. After all, no matter what their opponents try, Souhoku will have the last laugh as long as they are the first to cross the finish line.

Chances are if you are reading this then you've already watched every previous episode of Yowamushi pedal and so there's really no reason you shouldn't watch this one. I mean come on, the last season ended on a cliff-hanger which this season then picks up so it would be really weird to not watch this season too.

However, just because I'm saying you should watch this anime, that doesn't mean I have only positive things to say. In fact its quite the opposite. Firstly, half of this season is just flashbacks that feel more like filler to kill time than actual good content, and honestly they ...

Mixed Feelings
While I enjoyed previous seasons of Yowamushi Pedal, this felt like a slog to me. The entire season covers just the second inter-high race, so they are sure to drag out every bit as long as possible. Plot-wise, it is almost a carbon copy of the first inter-high, with basically identical strategies. The later episodes feel exceedingly slow, with flashbacks taking up the most of some episodes, and racers barely traversing a few hundred meters. Now, Yowamushi Pedal is a character driven story so flashbacks are great for fleshing out characters; however, by this point we already know the characters rather well and it is ...

Did you enjoy season 2? Want to watch it again? Then watch season 5! Oh sure, some things might have slightly different names (such as "piranhas" instead of a snake). Some things might be said by a different person. There are even moments when something that was only implied in season 2 is made explicit. But basically, plot point for plot point, season 5 is identical to season 2.

You even still get to keep all your favorite characters from before, not only because some of them return to watch the inter-high, but because many characters are carbon copies of characters who have graduated, only ...
