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.

So, this is my first mal review ever and I'm not a native English speaker but I hope that doesn't effect the review.
This review includes spoilers!

So, first of all I have to say: I'm absolutely disappointed. This anime wasted it's whole potential.

It starts of really nice, I liked Reki and Langa, even though they are a bit cliche but that didn't bother me much. Later some other characters were introduced, I especially liked Cherry and Joe.
The anime first focuses a lot on Reki and Langa and skating in general.
I myself have no clue about skateboarding so I don't know whether "S" is realistic or not read more

This is a show about a secret underground skateboarding race in which it is perfectly acceptable to just straight up clock your opponent in the face with your longboard and give them permanent brain damage. And it's so much fun.

Needless to say, it's not exactly grounded in realism. Characters often pull off skateboarding moves that break the laws of physics. One character rides an electronic AI skateboard that calculates wind speed. Another salsa dances on his skateboard while its going downhill at 80 miles per hour.

Despite the over-the-top way the show handles the skateboarding side of things, it nails the real-ness of its read more

It was good at start, i was thinking that this will be another ok sports anime, but no it started to get psychological and brutal for no reason. Characters are boring, so many fans loves Langa bcs he is "sexy" sure but isn't that all ? he is like one punch man of skating after few days, then we have Reki the one that is worse than Langa that is equally good as Adam but still manages to almost defeat him, but after that Adam stands up and scream like some jojo character (Dio's va pog) and gets angry and suddenly speeds up as fuck read more

-Note: English is not my native language, I apologize for possible mistakes.

The script for SK∞ has a casual tone that is easy to catch, with the inclusion of comedy overtones that, without being recursive, is effective. But undoubtedly one of the production's greatest strengths is the artistic rendering and technical effort on Bones' part. Because building a current fiction from the foundations of an urban culture alien to current times would not be easy if it weren't for the excellent work of photography, color, music and artistic direction in general, which give the set a great appeal and special magnetism. Special mention, of course, to read more
