SK8 the Infinity contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Hiroko Utsumi and includes a special booklet.
“Skating with you is Infinity.”
Reki, a high school sophomore and skater, is addicted to “S,” a highly secret and dangerous downhill skateboarding race that takes place in an abandoned mine. The skaters are especially wild about the “beefs,” or heated battles that erupt in the races.
Reki takes Langa, a transfer student returning to Japan after studying abroad, to the mine where the races are held. Langa, who has no skateboarding experience, finds himself pulled into the world of “S”…
From skaters who play dirty to AI-controlled skaters and even backstabbers, the intense, unpredictable skate battles brimming with endless possibilities are about to begin!
This exciting coming-of-age story was created by an all-star team featuring Hiroko Utsumi (Director), Ichiro Ohkouchi (Series Composition/Screenplay), Michinori Chiba(Character Design), and Bones (Animation Production), so don’t miss it!
