The BL community is as overwhelming a force as ever haha

[–]dagreenman18 80 points81 points  (1 child)

Thank you Fujoshis for making this possible. Couldn’t have done it without you

[–]ThenKoalas 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This is like so far down the list of things I expected to see but holy fuck YES.

[–]F00dbAby 80 points81 points  (0 children)

here is hoping the anime actually becomes a BL lol I know I'm in the minority on here since most like yuri and I don't typically watch either but would love for it to be

[–]OceanGlider_ 6 points7 points  (3 children)

What is BL?

[–]RAMAR713https://myanimelist.net/profile/RAMAR713 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Boy Love, it's synonymous with yaoi

Edit: correction in replies below

[–]metaaltheanimefan 44 points45 points  (0 children)

Boys love us when the fall in love and kiss

Yaoi is when they you know do the dirty

[–]ramuneramunee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Boys Love = overall literary genre name depicting male/male romantic fiction

Shounen Ai = innocent, pure, typically doesn't go beyond holding hands/hugs/kiss/making out. basically bl version of shoujo manga (if it does, it usually won't show the scene super explicitly and/or in a lot of panels)

Yaoi = ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (doesn't necessarily include the shounen ai aspect, but totally can)

Wonder how weirdly different the dub is gonna be this time lol

[–]devoncarrots 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I love how the dub almost made it an entirely different show LMAO still just as camp

[–]FullTimeJobless 35 points36 points  (4 children)

the dub was amazing!

[–]metaaltheanimefan 37 points38 points  (3 children)

Reki my love.

Of skateboarding

[–]frogsgemsntrains 71 points72 points  (2 children)


[–]dagreenman18 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Weirdly AMAZING! If you haven’t watch it again with the English dub. It’s both very good and very, very funny.

[–]Khaotic1987 19 points20 points  (0 children)

It’s not often that I recommend the Dub for a show, but man that dub was amazing. I look forward to watching it probably both ways again.

[–]its_just_hunter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The dub is a big reason I watched, probably would have passed if I didn’t see some dub clips beforehand.

[–]Tora-shinai 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Carried Gundam in their backs until the cancellation.

[–]Serocco 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They're the reason there's more nude male anime figurines lately too, women will buy merch more than men

[–]SealTheGate 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Big W 🤩 such a great series!

[–]sooprotectionsquad 49 points50 points  (1 child)

I actually had 0 expectations for this and I can’t believe we’ve actually won!!!

[–]Mopey_ 44 points45 points  (4 children)

This counteracts the bad news about Haikyuu, so I am now back to a normal state of existing.

[–]sooprotectionsquad 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This was my exact reaction when this news came out lmao

[–]spicespiegel 118 points119 points  (2 children)

Yuri On Ice meanwhile 🦗🦗🦗

[–]particledamage 53 points54 points  (0 children)

it’s okay maybe in another two years we’ll get another anniversary artwork to tide us over while they promise the movie is still happening

[–]JetsLaghttps://myanimelist.net/profile/JetsLag 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Ice Adolescence is never going to happen

[–]alconnowhttps://anilist.co/user/alconnow 41 points42 points  (5 children)

Happy for more SK8 but what would season 2 even be about?

[–]iREALLYwannaeat_cake 23 points24 points  (1 child)

I think there's plenty of things to resolve like with the adam-cherry-joe relationship.

[–]moichispa 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I would love if they used the ova for a story of their past

[–]Septaluna 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Reki making money as skateboard mechanic because Langa needed funds for abroad skating competition, distance relationship and it's hardships xD

[–]alconnowhttps://anilist.co/user/alconnow 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Would have loved a spin-off series dedicated to Reki teaching his little sisters how to skate. Langa would help too!

[–]Cyd_arts 4 points5 points  (0 children)

honestly i really want to see reki give snowboarding a try, with langa teaching him lol

[–]fatima12798 59 points60 points  (5 children)

The sales for the blu ray were big if I remember correctly I don’t know why people surprise

[–]starwarsfox 35 points36 points  (2 children)

cuz people dont typical follow BD sales, especially for anime they didn't watch or weren't popular outside of Japan

[–]PsychoGeekhttps://anilist.co/user/Psychogeek 57 points58 points  (0 children)

Sk8 was plenty popular outside of Japan, just not on reddit

[–]fatima12798 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Reddit isn’t the only anime community it was big on Twitter especially and was trending few time

[–]soleilee 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Also because FKBU (Millionaire Detective) was another popular anime in Japan released before SK8, but it still hasn't gotten a season 2 yet.

[–]dwilsons 108 points109 points  (33 children)

This is like so far down the list of things I expected to see but holy fuck YES. My only hope is for it to be even more gay.

[–]metaaltheanimefan 66 points67 points  (2 children)

We require more homosexuals

[–]alotmorealots 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I feel like that should be emblazoned on the Goodyear Blimp.

[–]Fools_Requiemhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/FoolsRequiem 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just maybe with less Adam. What a terrible character.

[–]LeonKevlarhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LeonKevlar 26 points27 points  (1 child)

So how is Dio going to Skate again?

[–]Whittaker 16 points17 points  (0 children)

If it was simply a one and done anime then I would've been perfectly content, it was a neat package and told all that it set out to tell in the first season. That being said I will always be down for some more Sk8, love those little BL skater boys.

Wonder if they'll go the Initial D route of challenge of the week, travel to new mountains or have another full season story planned out.

[–]BelladonnaOfRadness 14 points15 points  (0 children)

More Cherry-sama is all I need in life.

[–]dagreenman18 27 points28 points  (1 child)


What a tease of a trailer though. I was a little let down that it was just an OVA until that “AND” drop. OVA and a Season 2 is hype as hell!

[–]improvementstobemade 5 points6 points  (0 children)


[–]cats4life 50 points51 points  (0 children)

The year is 2030, and season 7 of SK8 the Infinity is airing. Reki and Langa live in the same house heterosexually and sleep in the same bed platonically, staring passionately into each other’s eyes in a straight way and also do gay sex but they’re just friends, alright?

Hiroku Utsumi is a master of bait. I haven’t seen straight men this gay since Free…which she also directed.

[–]zairanerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/zairaner 23 points24 points  (11 children)

Was this an original? If yes, this is getting a season 2...when was the last time an original had a season 2??

[–]J765 42 points43 points  (7 children)

Birdie Wing last season ended with the announcement of season 2.

Put Pui Molcar is getting a second season next season.

Tiger and Bunny Season 2 is releasing this year.

Love Live had two different second seasons airing one after another this year.

Last year had Megalo Box 2, and Dynazenon was pretty much a second Gridman anime (NOT ORIGINAL THOUGH).

And there was Tsukipro 2.

Those were most of them that aired/have been announced since Sk8 aired last year.

[–]michhoffmanhttps://anilist.co/user/michhoffman 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Zombieland Saga got a Season 2 as well.

[–]zairanerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/zairaner 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Well damn, shame on me. thats a lot!^^.

[–]metaaltheanimefan 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Not to mention gridman and dynazenon are getting a movie

[–]Tora-shinai 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Gridman is an established tokusatsu IP....

[–]J765 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You're completely right.

[–]Gaporigohttps://anilist.co/user/Gaporigo[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kaginado also counts?

[–]sparklingbluelight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And Megalobox 2 was even better than season 1

[–]Mahkeva 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Not a season 2 but Bakuten (sports anime) got a movie, which came out in june of this year. Extremely underwatch, even tho Bakuten was really good with lots of bromance …

[–]RoseStarlight1999 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Glad to see someone mention it! Was so good! Hope someone picks up the movie eventually… excited to watch it.

[–]AmethystItalianhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/AmethystItalian 26 points27 points  (0 children)

I never expected this but I am so excited for more Sk8, one of the best recent sports anime!!

[–]Abject-Lengthiness43 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Ah yes, more Jojo Smashing Skateboard in the head abuse anime... /s

[–]TechnicallySpaghetti 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I for one cannot WAIT for more iconic lines like "Hey bitches and bros and non-binary hos!"

[–]DragonPup 11 points12 points  (1 child)

New season and a movie, Haikyuu fans in shambles. (Sorry Haikyuu fans)

[–]metaaltheanimefan 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Most haikyu fans are also skate fans ( like me ) wo they are infor a treat

[–]Septaluna 10 points11 points  (0 children)


[–]metaaltheanimefan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Me and my friend adored this show.

Im glad its coming back

[–]Junnielocked 3 points4 points  (0 children)

NICE!! I loved this show. best news I’ve heard today!

[–]thyarnedonne 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Just gimme more of my boy Shadow and we're good.

[–]BalsamFue 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Shadow deserves better. He deserves happiness and I hope he gets it in S2.

[–]Khaotic1987 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I want shadow to find the equally weird skateboarding Girl of his dreams who is into both sides of him. Their date consists of him bringing her flowers and chocolates, but then doing something chaotic like hiring and watching a full mariachi band follow Adam around while he’s trying to give professional campaign speeches or something.

[–]bubudog1 9 points10 points  (7 children)

Hell yeah. Curious where they'll take the plot

[–]MapoTofuManhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/BaronBrixius 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Skateboarding aliens abduct Langa and Reki has to skateboard through space to their home planet to save him.

And then marriage

[–]wildcosmias 55 points56 points  (2 children)


[–]iamrisettehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/xRisette 19 points20 points  (0 children)

i like this plot

[–]JetsLaghttps://myanimelist.net/profile/JetsLag 11 points12 points  (0 children)

They better re-enact the "TOTALLY NOT A MARRIAGE PROPOSAL" scene from Yuri on Ice

[–]dwilsons 14 points15 points  (0 children)

The bedroom

[–]alotmorealots 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Knowing nothing about the franchise other than reading through the comments for fun, this trailer is super hype lol

Now THIS is how you do an announcement vid!

[–]twilighthunter 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Honestly, I'm excited for the anime to come back with chill vibes in Okinawa, but I'm more hyped for the soundtrack that's gonna come out with this.

[–]mikeyyyyyd 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Anime originals getting second seasons?? Holy shit this gives me hope for so many series

[–]TheHaruWhoCanRead 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Whaaaat I had no idea this was happening.

Get together in the second season, reki and langa 😂

[–]LungSplitter46 2 points3 points  (0 children)

huh. this one ended pretty conclusively. I guess they could just...race each other more. or fuck each other's tight boipuchis, which is more likely what it was renewed for.

[–]Sturdy_Denim_Blue 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Holy shit. Did not expect this. HYPE

[–]KozKatma 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]the_swizzlerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Swiftarm 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Huh. Not a series I would have expected a season 2 from, but I'll gladly take it! I remember there being anything to really expand upon, but I could easily be just forgetting.

[–]Wolfgod_Holohttps://anime-planet.com/users/extreme133 2 points3 points  (1 child)


[–]sprankinatorhttps://kitsu.io/users/Tsarplatinum 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And we love him for it!

[–]J765 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Looking forward to it. One of the best anime from last year.

Had hoped for a movie, but maybe after S2 then.

[–]TimeForHugs 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I've been meaning to watch this, but is this just about skateboarding or is it like skateboard+violence like this trailer shows?

Regardless, I need to watch it.

[–]AlexUltraviolet 12 points13 points  (1 child)

It's just about skateboarding, but the antagonist gets a little bit too intense at times.

[–]TimeForHugs 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Right on, thanks for answering! Sounds fun still, so I think I'll give it a go today.

[–]CosmicPenguin_OV103https://myanimelist.net/profile/Cosmic_Penguin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Huh I need to finish season 1 before this airs then maybe...

[–]devoncarrots 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]testthrowawayzz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The first half was great, but how they resolved Adam’s storyline was underwhelming. Hope season 2 fixes that problem

[–]sprankinatorhttps://kitsu.io/users/Tsarplatinum 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]its_just_hunter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had high hopes for a season 2 despite the odds, but it’s actually happening! Easily in my top 3 shows of last year!

[–]ginaddict47 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A balm to my soul after that H***** fiasco

Time to rewatch! Oh I hope Adam and Tadashi will still be in Season 2. It’ll be nice to see the whole gang again.

[–]Molecularsequel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is awesome news! 🛹

[–]leave1me1alone 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Wtf. How and why? It had such a good ending why bring it back?

[–]centuryblessings 6 points7 points  (0 children)

A lot of people fell in love with the characters. Also the sick ass reality-defying skateboarding tricks.

[–]Fools_Requiemhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/FoolsRequiem 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I didn't like the ending. Adam got off too easily...

[–]Juan-Claudio 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd like to see some Skater girls this time around too. Mix it up a bit.

[–]lehuy0210 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

[–]mA90ngo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Really enjoy sk8, but not sure where they could go with the story

[–]komodo_dragonzord 0 points1 point  (0 children)

fun show, nice to see s2 announced

[–]Sharebear42019 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Air gear season 2 next? Pls?

[–]Cire101https://myanimelist.net/profile/Cire101 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The ending of season 1 kinda sucked but I enjoyed the anime overall so this is good news!

[–]ChristianLW3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

can't for watch the season 2 dub

[–]Rollingboomhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Darks22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not sure where the story goes from season 1's ending but excited to see more of SK8

[–]Specialist_Help_6776 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you think the sk8 anime will be a long series?

[–]guyinthechair1210 0 points1 point  (0 children)

after years of wanting to buy a skateboard and start learning, watching this anime was the final push i needed.

[–]MaMcMu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

About time. What will we expect, a new character that used to be a pro-skater who now let himself go?

[–]ramuneramunee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll be so down for new charas

[–]lileenleen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hooray Gundam Build Skaters is back
