Synopsis

High school student Reki Kyan is passionate about one thing: skateboarding. When night falls, he heads to "S," an illegal underground race inside a mine where skaters compete in highly dangerous situations. After a loss that results in his skateboard being destroyed and his arm being broken, Reki is now incapable of practicing at all.

While working, Reki runs into his new classmate, Langa Hasegawa, a half-Canadian and half-Japanese boy with no skateboarding experience whatsoever. Langa is in desperate need of money. After they both visit "S" when tasked by Reki's boss, they get into trouble and are forced into a bet that requires Langa to skate in a race. However, the mysterious transfer student holds a trump card that Reki is unaware of, one which might help him win the race in the most unexpected way.

I didnt know what to expect once I started watching it but I am sure glad I got to start and finish it.
The animation was on a good high quality level that transports you into a good binge watching. The characters were not bad at all, their plots and backstories really hold up for 12 episodes without letting you get bored or annoyed at their character development or interaction. I dont usually watch sports anime cuz they only lead to the loop story based on/off situations and arcs, but for this one, as a 12 episode anime, it was compact and very thrilling to watch.

Mixed Feelings
The anime comes off as both knowledgable and uninitiated in the sport it's trying to portray. It’s both futuristic and backwards at the same time. Some parts of the show are astoundingly realistic, while other times throws logic out the door completely. One of the main characters (Langa) has been a snowboarder since he was 2 years old, yet he’s never been exposed to skateboarding before. And when he tried for the first time, he lost his balance just standing on the board.
I’m sorry, but I haven’t met a snowboarder that couldn’t skate, let alone a snowboarder that’s been doing it for 15 years.

It started off so well!!! I’m not too sure what the creators were thinking towards the end. I think for any show, it’s easy to suspend your disbelief (no matter how unbelievable the fable), if the rules within the universe are well defined and adhered to throughout the entirety of the story. In the case of this anime, it was easy to suspend your disbelief initially. Some questionable aspects of skating on rocks down a mountain, but generally it was easy to get into. Then the primary antagonist up’d the ante by turning the competition into some sexualized fight club and the show went downhill ...
