Episode 6 of Yowamushi Pedal Limit Break delayed due to rugby – to air on November 20th instead

While you may not think the game rugby would be particular popular in Japan, apparently there are enough Japanese who are into rugby that broadcaster NHK has announced on their official Twitter account that Episode 6 of Yowamushi Pedal Limit Break will be delayed due to an upcoming rugby game broadcast.

That delay means Yowamushi Pedal Limit Break Episode 6 will now be airing on November 20th instead of the 13th.

The episode, titled “The End of the Flat Road“, means fans will have to wait to see the outcome of the race between Sohoku’s Kaburagi and Hakone’s Doubashi.

And man, are they going to be upset.

Particularly as things on Yowamushi Pedal Limit Break have just started to get incredibly exciting, with the rivalry between Sohoku and Hakone becoming ever more intense as episode follows episode.

No worries, though, two weeks passes quickly.

Plus, it will give you chance to catch up to events if you haven’t already.

Or rewatch some of the current fifth season’s most exciting bits.

Meanwhile, the fifth season of Yowamushi Pedal, which is five episodes in, is airing on Crunchyroll and available for Premium subscribers.

Yen Press is publishing the manga in English.
