Hey guys welcome to a Rebellious Review! I know, it’s been forever since I’ve done one of these huh? But from now on I plan to do a review each week so look forward to that you guys! Anyway this week I’m going to be reviewing the first three episodes of the new anime everyone seems so hyped up about lately: Sk8 The Infinity. So far this anime has been pretty interesting so let’s see how this goes eh?
Alrighty, when it first starts out it immediately catches your attention. It brings you to a back story of how everything started for our main character. What made him pursue his passion of skateboarding and what he really loves about it. Then it immediately cuts to the battle of him and the supposed “Anti-hero of Sk8: Shadow. It…well, it doesn’t go well for our lovable Reki. But I’ll leave the major details out so I don’t spoil anything. It then shows our precious cinnamon bun Langa coming in from his old home Canada. And boy this does adorable silver headed cutie shake things up taking the skate boarding world by storm like no one has ever seen before.
This get’s the attention of known skaters everywhere and we get an unstoppable duo between Reki and Langa. With Reki’s skills with making skateboards and Langa’s special skills it makes the whole three episode amazing and interesting. And that’s saying something coming from me considering I usually don’t really care too much about skateboarding.
So far we’ve been introduced to what could possibly be all of our characters in the anime. But, it’s still too early in the anime to judge that completely. I absolutely love the characters so far from Reki and Langa our main protagonists, to Shadow, Cherry, Joe and all of the others. It’s also quite entertaining to see how outside of the S skateboarding matches the characters have a completely different personality. For example, Shadow–a rough and tumble guy in the S games, but a completely different guy: He runs a flower shop. If that’s not hilarious and lovable I don’t know what is.
The only thing I would say I wish I would have gotten a little bit more background or introduced just a little bit more about our characters in the first few episodes. Just to get more of a feel for the older characters that we’re introduced to. But, the fact that we weren’t given too much information maybe because they will play a much bigger and much more important role later on in the anime. So, it’s yet to be seen.
Opening and Closing Theme music:
I think without a doubt Sk8 The Infinity has one of the catchiest music and entertaining to watch openings I have seen in a while. Both of them are really catchy and easily get in your head when you listen to them. Plus, it’s just so cute to see our protagonists dance in the openings. This makes me wonder what they have in store for us in the next episodes of this anime.
Overall Fangirl Score: 10/10
Final Score: 39/40
So that’s it for this week’s Rebellious Review. What did you guys think? Do you agree with the score? Have you watched the anime yourself? I’d love to hear what y’all think! Well, that’s all for now,
Rebel Fae out!
