What is the show about?
The show is about a high school student named Reki. Reki happens to be into skateboarding a lot. Due to circumstances, he gets involved in a shady underground skateboard race called the “S”. Along with Reki, Ranga, who has just come back to Japan from Canada, gets sucked into the “S”. It is fascinating to see all the dirty racers and AI racers completing in the race battles. Reki gets involved and later on gets addicted to the “S.” The teaser shows a young guy taking his skateboard while new-age electronic music plays in the background. Anime fans should get ready for the new and exciting anime which shows a lot of promise.
