It’s official! A new anime project for the skateboarding series SK8 the Infinity is in the works.
The announcement was made during the “SK8 Masquerade of Love” event which confirmed Reki and Langa will shred the gnar once again. Not much else is known about the upcoming Sk8 the Infinity anime project, but they do implore you to check the official website and Twitter to stay up to date.
Additionally, a two-part stage production based on the series was announced. Titled SK8 The Stage, the first part is scheduled for a December 2021 open with the second part slated for January 2022.
While many popular anime television series begin as manga, SK8 the Infinity is actually an original anime series produced and animated by Bones. It aired between January and April 2021. The animation company has worked on several popular series including My Hero Academia, Fullmetal Alchemist, Mob Psycho, and Godzilla Singular Point. It also worked on many anime films like Cowboy Bebop: The Movie and the upcoming My Hero Academia The Movie: World Heroes’ Mission.
SK8 the Infinity does have two manga adaptations. Sk8 Chill Out! has been serialized on the Young Ace Up website since January 2021. The second is based on the actual anime television series, and began serialization in March 2021 on the BookLive! e-book store.
SK8 the Infinity is directed by Hiroko Utsumi and written by Ichiro Okouchi. There are currently 12 episodes released. The entire series is available on Funimation in both Japanese sub and English dubbed.
