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.

Fun story, captivating characters, cool music, and beautiful art!!

Have you ever watched a 100% realistic sports anime? No? Me neither. If I wanted it to be realistic I would stick with real-life shows...

I love the chemistry between all characters, how great their friendships are, and how much fun they are all having! This is a really fun, cute anime to watch!
So far, this has been low on drama and high on entertainment! :D

If you like Haikyuu, Kuroko no Basket, Free!, or Yuri on Ice, I believe you'll also enjoy this!
Don't confuse this anime with this season's Skate-Leading Stars! This is so much better!

So generic, so often seen, so clichéd...and yet so fun to watch. 'SK∞ The Infinity', a disappointing and at the same time highly interesting show, of which I think that it not only offers something for fans of the shounen or the sports genre, rather something for every person out there that loves anime.

Story - 4/10

Firstly, I have to admit that the idea of a skateboarding anime for sure is revolutionary, because until this show started airing, no other anime featured skateboarding as the main topic. But after all, you could also say that it's just another sports anime with comedy elements. And the concurrence read more

As much as I enjoyed watching this anime, I'm pretty disappointed as to what it turned out to be.

Positives:
I'll start off by saying that the art and animation is gorgeous. The colors are so vibrant and exotic that you don't even realize the story takes place in Japan. The animation for the skate tricks was especially good and satisfying to watch. Visually, the anime is refreshing and really good. The sound is good but nothing too special, they did a good job at implementing the skateboard's sound effects apart from a few irrelevant flaws. The enjoyment was reaaally good and each episode only gets better. read more

So SK∞
What a strange anime that I kinda felt like came out of nowhere but holy hell does this anime ooze style. From the street art aesthetic with all the characters clothing and stickers to the fantastic skating animation SK∞ really becomes an anime to behold.
Story: 8 Honestly it reminds me a lot of Initial D (with the one racing spot premise) except a LOT MORE anime which can be a positive and a negative. I personally like the comedy side of the anime which with that already being kind of over the top makes it easier to except all the extremely anime characters that read more
