New original anime from BONES
The anime series is directed by Hiroko Utsumi (“Banana Fish”) in Studio BONES. Ichiro Ohkouchi (“Princess Principal”) takes care of the series composition and screenplay, while Michinori Chiba (“Mobile Suit Gundam 00”) contributes the character design. Ryo Takahashi (“Citrus”) composes the music. Aniplex takes over the sales.
The main roles are Tasuku Hatanaka (Yuuma Tsukumo in “Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL”) as Reki and Chiaki Kobayashi (Makoto Edamura in “Great Pretender”) as Ranga.
In addition, Takuma Nagatsuka speaks the character Miya, Kenta Miyake speaks Shadow, Hikaru Midorikawa speaks Cherry Blossom, Yasunori Matsumoto speaks Joe, Takehito Koyasu speaks Adam and Kensho Ono speaks Atsushi Kikuchi.
The story revolves around Reki, a sophomore high school student who is an avid skater. He’s addicted to “S”, a secret and dangerous downhill skateboarding race that takes place in an abandoned mine. The skaters are particularly keen on the beef and heated fights that break out during the races.
Reki also convinces Ranga, who is returning to Japan after an exchange year, to take him to the mine where the races are held. Ranga may have no skateboarding experience, but is enthusiastic about the world of “S”
