Since Yowamushi Pedal: Glory Line continues the second annual Inter-High racing story, it’s advised that you at least watch the third season (Yowamushi Pedal: New Generation) that aired last winter in 2017.
Although still in the first episode, the fourth season of this anime immediately presents an intense cycling race, with the scenes are still animated briliantly by TMS Entertainment studio. The race between “seasoned” cyclers of Sohoku High School (Naruko and Imaizumi), with debutant racers of Hakone Academy (Kuroda and Ashikiba) ahead of the first-day Inter-High finish line, as well as the surprise of “dark horse” Kyoto Fushimi’s team led by Midoukuji and Mizuta, will be explored in the upcoming episode.
If you are still curious about the story of Onoda and Sohoku High School cycling teams competing in Inter-High race, you should watch Yowamushi Pedal: Glory Line.
