SK8 the Infinity Synopsis
The anime centers on Reki, a second-year high school student who loves to skateboard. One day, she is caught in “S”, a dangerous skateboard race without rules that takes place in an abandoned mine.
Ranga, who has returned to Japan after living in Canada for some time and has never skated before, also wraps in “S” along with Reki. The plot will introduce us to different types of contestants in these races ranging from rookies, those who play dirty, and even skaters with artificial intelligence!
