"Yowapeda" (or Yowamushi Pedal)

This is a refreshing sports series that has you cheering for the whole cycling team at Sohoku High School, especially freshman Onoda Sakamichi (the wide eyed guy above).  Onoda begins high school hoping to join the anime club to get some friends, but ends up joining the cycling team after discovering that after all his biking to Akihibara to buy anime goods, he has a real talent for bike racing.  It's a sports shonen show (i.e., lots of racing), but the real draw is seeing Onoda bloom into a racer and making friends, especially with Imaizumi and Naruko, two other talented freshmen.  Each show has lots of laughs and makes you smile.  Everyone is super earnest and it's fun to watch.  I'm up to episode 10 and each show has been great.  Looking forward to more.
