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.

are you looking for a sports anime that would make you feel the way the ones from 2010s did? don't search any longer, sk8 the infinity is here!!

such a fun experience, full of lovely characters, feels and an awful villain, like oh my god, it's ridiculous how much i hate him. fair warning for grooming, inapropriate language and touches towards minors and just overall creepiness and violence. thank god no one in the show views it as something normal/excusable.

sk8 the infinity tackles all the good stuff: developing friendship, healthy rivarly, overcoming doubts and finidng your place in the world. additionally it gives us some love ...

So I just want to say that this review is coming from someone who's been in the skateboarding community for over 6 years, and therefore I will try to remain unbiased and understanding of a non-skater's point of view, as well as mine.

I am assuming when you are reading this review, you can categorize yourself into 2 categories:

A: You want to watch this anime, mainly for the storyline and don't really care about the realism and accuracy of how skateboarding is depicted, it's anime after all, so maybe it doesn't matter to you.

B: You are a skater yourself and like anime, so you wanna watch ...

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 ...
