Plot Summary: Minami Itsuki never thought about seriously riding Air Treck motorized roller blades, until he got his butt handed to him by a street gang of Storm Riders. That day, he discovered in a locked up room, a pair of AT’s and a box of stickers belonging to the Sleeping Forest street gang. One thing leads to another, and Ikki dons the wheels and begins to ride. As his reputation builds in the AT street fighting/racing world, he begins to develop his own gang and participate in more fights, gaining more and more territory.
What I think: I actually never wanted to watch Air Gear. The poster (the one above) and the fact that its supposed to be a sports anime discouraged me. I was forced to watch the first episode because of a friend that was watching it. The next day a watched the remaining 24 episodes. It´s incredible how an anime about “skating” can be this addictive. I´m even thinking about watching it once more.
I always try to keep my reviews short, so you can find an anime you like, and go and watch it right away. So check out my older reviews, maybe you will find something you will enjoy.
