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.


I watched Air Gear by mistake. I thought it was the anime that my friend recommended me to watch. It wasn’t but I only learned that when I was done.

I got bored from the anime as soon as I finished the first episode but decided to keep watching since I thought it was recommended. The main character is you typical shounen manga heroin. He’s very average at first then his special power unravels. Boring!

As I kept watching the typicality of the show didn’t change but there were a few interesting aspect of the story which made it somewhat interesting. However, the ending wasn’t an ending which disappointed me more. I was told that the OVA was a better completion of the anime but I couldn’t bother to watch it.

The anime wasn’t to bad I have to admit that I did enjoy it at some point.

Overall Rate: 6/10
