Daiki Yamashita, Daisuke Kishio and Yuma Uchida talked about their feelings toward climax episodes

Special advanced screening event of last episodes of “Yowamushi Pedal NEW GENERATION” was held at TOHO Cinemas Nihonbashi on June24.

 Climax episodes of ep.24 and 25 were screened in front of audiences and their eyes were fixed on screen.

 Daiki Yamashita (as Sakamichi Onoda), Daisuke Kishio (as Junta Teshima) and Yuma Uchida (as Yuto Shinkai) came on stage after the screening. They were welcomed with warm applauses.

 First of all, Daisuke Kishio described his feeling of recording “Yowamushi Pedal NEW GENERATION” that ‘Teshima had more lines than previous series and felt harder but worth doing it. I can tell that my 2017 was fully given to do my best for Pedal’.

 Furthermore, Yuma Uchida, who have joined “Yowamushi Pedal” for the first time in this series commented that ‘I was envious of seeing members who are putting their full energy to fight each other to not to be defeated’.

 When they were reviewing impressed scenes, Daiki Yamashita reviewed a scene of Sakamichi and Makishima (Yusuke) just before leaving to Britain, with words ‘This scene was very important for Sakamichi. He was respecting Makishima-senpai not only as climber but as a human. It was my second time of performing this scene because this scene was in the movie, but I still have noise feeling in my heart’.

 For episodes in training camp, Daisuke Kishio reviewed a scene between Tshima and Koga that ‘This was when Teshima, who couldn’t reach the first place for long time, has won for the first time in sprint racing. It was very hard scene to perform but I couldn’t stop crying when I saw Teshima’s name credited on top of other casts in the staff roll’.

 Moreover, Yuma Uchida commented on inter-high episodes that ‘I watched some scenes with Hayato Shinkai(Yuto’s borther. Voiced by Satoshi Hino)’s appearances and I hoped that I could create Hayato’s atmosphere while performing as Yuto’.

 Furthermore, they talked on episodes 24 and 25, and Daisuke Kishio was asked about impressed line and answered ‘I remember Teshima saying ‘I love bicycles’ because I’m feeling the same kind of emotion towards ‘performing’’ and continued that ‘I was sympathizing towards Teshima and was hard not to cry while performing’.

 Daiki Yamashita commented on climax recordings that ‘every single scene was about fighting with my members so it was very passionate’. More and more episodes were talked at the event.

 At the last of this event, each cast left a message towards fans.


Yuma Uchida:
It hasn’t been long since I joined this anime as Yuto Shinkai, but I’m hoping to have a chance to think about Yuto again. There are still some events to be held, so I hope every fan to stick together with “Yowamushi Pedal” for some more.


Daisuke Kishio:
I’m also a fan of anime and original manga “Yowamushi Pedal”, so I’m looking forward to watch last episode on TV. Please be looking forward to watch Teshima or Manami to be a winner. I’m feeling this anime as guideline in my life. I think this anime will stay in many audiences’ heart. Please enjoy.


Daiki Yamashita:
I was emphasized and felt my heart to vibrate by seeing characters trying their best to race, same as Sakamichi who got vibration (of heart) from Teshima. I’m hoping that I still have chance to race with characters and explode our energy towards fans. Thank you.
