Yowamushi Pedal (弱虫ペダル/Weakling Pedal) by Watanabe Wataru (渡辺 航) is now one of my favourite sports anime. I really like watching titles in this genre because more often than not, they’re inspirational and motivational. When I decided to finally watch this anime, I tried not to expect too much because I didn’t want to be disappointed. Thankfully, I wasn’t.
The first thing that got my attention was the opening theme song Reclimb (レクライム) by ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D. It’s a super upbeat song that sticks inside your brain after you hear it. At least that’s what happened to me. I can’t help bobbing my head and body in time with the guitars and the drums, and as usual, I just adore the vocalist of ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D.
What I like the most, however, is the lyrics. I think that it fits the theme of YowaPed quite well. It’s inspirational, urging all of us to believe in ourselves at all times. I love songs like this; the ones with meanings that resonate to the listeners. I also think that the animators did a great job in creating an opening sequence to complement the song. Kudos to them.

Below is the actual music video of the band ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D. I don’t like it that much, but the kids are cute.
