Plot: This original skateboarding anime follows high schooler Reki, who is addicted to S, the no-holds-barred skateboarding downhill jam set in an abandoned mine. Yes…all of that is true.
Reki brings along transfer student Langa, who has no skateboarding experience whatsoever. And in this world of skating, it’s all about the “beef,” the showdowns that take place mid-race! Good luck, you two.
Available in the United States, Canada, Mexico*, Brazil*, United Kingdom and Ireland. Available in Australia and New Zealand on AnimeLab. Available in France, Germany, Scandinavia and Russia on Wakanim.
*Simulcast date to be confirmed for Mexico and Brazil.
While Langa and Reki have a falling out, we get to see some of Adam's backstory and why he is like that. His female family members "punished him" in the name of love. Adam cherishes that word. Adam's secretary is also in the race.
Joe get some sakuga moment where he backjump on the wall to accelerate. It's called Joe's Power Break.
While we see a spectacular match between Snow and Joe play out from start to finish. Snow used the power of Reki's love to jump over the tracks to reach Joe whose muscular tactics of reducing speed and such.
For Cherry folks, his match ended quickly with Adam doing the Hisoka of Sports, beat him down because Cherry bores him.
The backstory on their relationships of a young, happy Adam with Joe and Cherry reminds me of Kuroko's Basketball. Honestly, I find these 3 relationship much more interesting than Langa and Reki's.
Adam is facing many issues: *Despite defeating Reki, everyone is cheering and complimenting Reki for his achievements: jumping down a hill, using rain wheels *A red haired woman who was shown previously is now initiating a search warrant *Adam is spiraling down
Too bad, we don't see Langa's fight with Adam's secretary.
We probably won't see Adam skate in his prime state of mind in the finals with Langa since he seems damaged from Reki's match mentally.
We pretty much closed most of the things with this episode. Adam saw Langa's drive for fun opening his heart. The two relationships foil each other. Adam kept seeing Langa as Tadashi. Last episode, Tadashi saw Reki as old Adam.
Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
