Skateboard anime by Hiroko Utsumi, BONES premieres on January 9

The official Twitter account for director Hiroko Utsumi (Banana Fish, Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, Free! Eternal Summer) and animation studio BONES' (Eureka Seven, My Hero Academia) original anime project Sk8 the Infinity began streaming a second promotional video and a commercial on Saturday.

The anime will premiere on ABC TV and TV Asahi's "Animazing!!!" programming block starting on January 9. The show will air at 2:00 a.m. on Saturdays.

The show stars:

Ichiro Okouchi (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress) is writing and overseeing the series scripts, and Michinori Chiba (Basilisk, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans) is designing the characters. Ryō Takahashi (ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept., Argonavis from BanG Dream!) is composing the music.

Additional staff includes:

The anime centers on Reki, a second-year high school student who loves skateboarding, and gets caught up in "S," an underground and dangerous skateboard race at an abandoned mine with no rules. Langa, who has returned to Japan from Canada and has never skateboarded before, also gets wrapped up in S along with Reki. Dirty racers, AI racers, and other unique individuals compete in the "youth skateboard race battle."
