SK8 The Infinity Season 2 Release Date
We do have an official announcement but it isn’t necessarily about season 2. There are also speculations that the new project will be a movie. A teaser for the upcoming project was already released. But, it does not tell us whether it is season 2 or a movie. It might come around late 2022 and early 2023. We will have to wait for more updates to find out what the new project is all about.
SK8 The Infinity Season 2 Characters
We expect the lead voice cast to return if there will be a second season of SK8 The Infinity Which includes My Hero Academia‘s Tasuku Hatanaka as Reki, Chiaki Kobayashi as Langa, Chiaki Kobayashi as Miya, Yasunori Matsumoto as Joe, and ‘One-Punch Man’ voice actor Hikaru Midorikawa Cherry Blossom.
SK8 The Infinity Season 2 Expected Plot
The first season ended with Langa winning the tournament after beating Adams. He also left him with a valuable lesson about the purpose of skating. Langa celebrated with his friends. Meanwhile, Shadow is broken-hearted after discovering that the florist he likes is dating someone else. In the post-credits scene, Tadashi revealed to Adams that he did not sell him out, but he now has to act like his dog.
If season 2 picks up on this ending, we expect Langa and his friends to go to Tokyo and participate in the S Downhill Skating competition. Langa will have to prove his skating skills against level-up competitors.
Is SK8 The Infinity Over?
First up is the ending. If an anime has a definite conclusion then the second season won’t have an opening to start from. In other words, the show signaled an end to the series. But if the anime has a conclusion that can be stretched forward then the chances for a sequel increase.
So what’s the case with Sk8? Well, lucky for us, it’s the latter. If you remember correctly, the series ended with Langa winning against ADAM and putting an end to S. Langa was placed as the best skater as he won the tournament and we went to post-credit scenes.
There, we saw Koyomi starting her skating practice and finally, Langa and Reki against one another. They both ask each other to give their best in this final race! Now this “Final Race” might just be an exclamation and they don’t mean it literally.
So we can say that the ending was open enough to be used for the next season. From this point, we can see our gang traveling to new places and racing there. So we can say that the ending of Sk8 the infinity was good enough to be used for the next season.
SK8 The Infinity Season 1 Ending Explained
Season one concluded on an extraordinary note. Adam and Langa’s feud begins on S’s original and riskier path. Langa enters a mental state where he is unable to concentrate on anything other than skating as a result of Adam’s coercion.
When he falls, he acknowledges that Reki has written “fun” on his deck, which reminds him of how much enjoyable skating is. Langa assists Adam in realizing the fun of skating, and he wins the race as a result.
Following that, the gathering commemorates Langa’s victory, while Adam is released from custody after providing authorities with knowledge about his accomplice. As part of their earlier promise, Reki and Langa race at S.
