Sports anime can depict thrilling competitiveness, compelling teammate dynamics, and triumphant personal growth stories while offering engaging and fast-paced animation. However, a common resentment with standard sports anime and manga is the dramatic deviation from the actual sport itself.

No, Sk8: The Infinity is not anywhere near accurate in terms of how skateboarding -- or the laws of physics -- works. The anime takes plenty of creative liberties, exaggerating what tricks get done on a skateboard. That has said, Sk8: The Infinity does capture an authentic mental aspect where so many other sports anime fail.

Amid extreme downhill races between skating masters with natural talent, protagonist Reki gets forced to grapple with his inadequacy, and he finds a way to make peace with it. Those participating in sports often have to face the cold reality that not everyone is natural, and that’s okay. Sk8: The Infinity expertly gets an essential point across: fun should be at the heart of sports.
