The Sk8 the Infinity Week Special Event has revealed that the previously announced new Sk8 the Infinity anime project is an original video anime and a second season. The main staff from the first season is returning.
The anime centers on Reki, a second-year high school student who loves skateboarding, and gets caught up in “S,” an underground and dangerous skateboard race with no rules at an abandoned mine. Langa, who has returned to Japan from Canada and has never skateboarded before, also gets wrapped up in S. Dirty racers, AI racers, and other unique individuals compete in the “youth skateboard race battle.”
Sk8 the Infinity premiered on Japanese television on January 9, 2021. FUNimation Entertainment simulcast the series as it aired, and began streaming an English dub in February 2021.
