It’s been a few years since the fourth season of Yowamushi Pedal with Glory Line but we’re going to get back on that bike again. The fifth season under the title Limit Break came out in October 2022 with a two-cour/twenty-five-episode run. TOHO is handling the home video release and they’ve set it for three volumes with an 8/8/9 pattern. With both editions being limited edition releases, the DVDs are priced at 15,000 yen each while the Blu-rays are priced at 18,000 yen each.

With the first set still a good bit away, we now have a look at the cover for the first set below. Check the full schedule and known details below.

04 Limited Sazabys are performing the opening theme song with “Keep Going” while Novelbright is on board with “PRIDE” for the ending theme.

Based on the manga by Wataru Watanabe, the previous seasons were directed by Osamu Nabeshima based on scripts by Reiko Yoshida with character designs by Takahiko Yoshida and animated at TMS Entertainment.

The property stars Daiki Yamashita as Sakamichi Onoda, Kousuke Toriumi as Shunsuke Imaizumi, Jun Fukushima as Shōkichi Naruko, Hiroki Yasumoto as Shingo Kinjō, Showtaro Morikubo as Yūsuke Makishima, Kentarou Itou as Jin Tadokoro, Daisuke Kishio as Junta Teshima, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Hajime Aoyagi, Junichi Suwabe as Toji Kanzaki, Ayaka Suwa as Miki Kanzaki, Megumi Han as Aya Tachibana, Tomoaki Maeno as Juichi Fukutomi, Tsubasa Yonaga as Sangaku Manami, Tetsuya Kakihara as Jinpachi Tōdō, Satoshi Hino as Hayato Shinkai, Hiroyuki Yoshino as Yasutomo Arakita, Atsushi Abe as Tōichirō Izumida, Koji Yusa as Akira Midōsuji, Hirofumi Nojima as Kōtarō Ishigaki, Tomokazu Seki as Eikichi Machimiya and Yukari Tamura as Kotori Himeno.

Plot concept: The race continues in Yowamushi Pedal Grande Road! Picking up right where season one left off, the Inter-High is in full swing, and Day 2 is still undecided. There are only a few kilometers left until the end, but this grueling race isn’t just about who will cross the finish line first–it’s about who will get there at all! With one more day to go to decide who the ultimate victors of this three-day marathon will be, the competition only heats up with every cyclist that drops out. Whose jersey will make it across the finish line?
