The nighttime session of the “Sk8 Masquerade of Love” event made an important announcement. It revealed that SK8 the Infinity anime will have a new anime project and a two-part stage production.
So far, no additional details (such as the format or the release date) have been revealed for the new project although new announcements will be provided via the official SK8 the Infinity website, and Twitter feed (@sk8_project) in the future.
Since the anime’s premiere in January, it has gained the love of fans online who appreciate the way it navigates the sports genre. SK8 the Infinity is centered around doing what you love, rather than winning.
The main character isn’t a prodigy or even a natural skater, but he never gives up on doing what makes him happy. The show is amazing in portraying how the characters deal with their personal issues while still tackling the sport.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Funimation describes the series thus:
High school students Reki and Langa are hooked on one thing—a dangerous, top secret, no-holds-barred downhill skateboarding race called “S.” When Reki takes Langa, a transfer student, to the mountain where “S” is held, Langa finds himself sucked in. These colorful skaters will take you through a thrilling story of skateboard battles and unlimited possibilities
The original anime was directed by Hiroko Utsumi (Banana Fish, Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club, Free! Eternal Summer) at Studio BONES, and Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress) wrote and oversaw the series scripts.
Michinori Chiba (Basilisk, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans) designed the characters and Ryō Takahashi (ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept., Argonavis from BanG Dream!) composed the music.
The first part of the stage play will open in December 2021 while the second part will open next January. The original anime premiered on January 9 and was distributed in America by Funimation.
