1st Visual Revealed for Sk8 the Infinity OVA
The core team from the first season that was broadcasted in January 2021 is regrouping for the OVA. Hiroko Utsumi (Banana Fish, Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club, Free! Eternal Summer) is coming back to direct the original anime at BONES, and Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress) is supervising the series scripts. Michinori Chiba (Basilisk, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans) is resuming the character design work.
The original anime features Reki, a high school junior with a passion for skateboarding, who becomes entangled in “S,” a hazardous skateboard race with zero rules taking place at an old mine. Langa, who has recently returned to Japan from Canada and is a novice at skateboarding, also finds himself involved in S. Dishonest racers, AI competitors, and a host of other intriguing characters participate in this exhilarating “youth skateboard race battle.”
The anime series debut on ABC TV and TV Asahi‘s “Animazing!!!” programming block in January 2021. Funimation aired the anime concurrently in Japan, and started streaming an English dub in February 2021.
