A rant about sk8 the infinity.
I know I’m going to get hate for this but. Legitimately WHY does the sk8 fandom have so much hate for Adam? I have watched the whole English dub and most of the original Japanese. The honest to god worst he gets is being performatively flirty to someone who is the same age as Jotaro is in early SDC.
Aside from the dance, which is effectively intimidation and honestly no worse than Shadow’s explosives, he is pretty goddamn harmless in that sense. Sure, he’s also sending people to the hospital but. This is an underground skating group that has little to no safety measures. He isn’t doing any worse than anyone else, it’s just that he’s kind of ruthless.
I think the fandom is empathizing a little too hard with Reki. And as someone who instantly connected with Langa and saw their interactions in a different light because of emotional abuse by my friends...
Let’s get into it.
~REKI VS. ADAM~
-FANDOM OVERSENSITIVITY AND EXCUSING TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS-
Yeah you heard me right. Reki is a toxic friend. And it doesn’t just start at the fight. Early on we get hints of it in the preview chats! Reki admits to not talking to Langa about anything important, such as his feelings or details about himself. I wonder where THAT might have been useful?
As Adam becomes a thing, we see Reki getting increasingly pissed about him despite him not doing much worse than insulting Miya and wanting to teach Langa. Reki has effectively already decided that Langa is his property. He gets visibly pissed when someone else wants to get to know him, more so than he was about the insult to Miya even.
And then Langa decides he wants to race Adam and everything goes to shit. Instead of saying anything about feelings, expressing worry, being genuine... Reki outright demands that Langa not skate against him. He’s so insistent about it that even in a fluffy side-comic, Langa is seen putting his foot down and insisting he WANTS to race Adam, only to be ignored. And when Langa does race Adam and has an adrenaline high so obvious that he outright flings himself into the leading role in his and Adam’s dance, Reki seems to ignore the signs that maybe Langa enjoys this sort of thrill!
To the point where he immediately starts to learn Adam’s tricks. In the very next episode, he uses the skateboard capture and dance to catch a falling Reki. He starts to outperform him, to get popular even though that’s not what he’s after. And what does Reki do about that? He lets it fester. He gets sour and mean to Langa when all the other is doing is trying to impress him. And when push comes to shove, he outright GASLIGHTS him, insisting he broke a promise that he never even made as an excuse to cut him off.
Sure, they get back together. But there’s always this air of control to him, as if he sees Langa as a side character in his life and wants it to stay that way. He’s hovering a lot in the last few episodes, and it honestly rings a lot of alarm bells in my brain.
And now for Adam’s side of things.
If there’s one character in sk8 that sets off a lot of “aha” moments from my informal therapeutic training, it’s Adam. Golden child syndrome stacked on top of signs of autism, clear and visible ptsd, and definite suicidal ideation. Adam has had a number of things literally beaten into him from a very, very young age... and it’s left its mark. He has absolutely zero understanding of love, platonic or romantic, and if he’s anything less than his best he goes into what I can only describe as a panicked rage.
Despite this, he’s not a killer. He’s dangerous, but only in that he wants so hard to be matched with someone so that he can be understood, so he pushes people too far. If he’s not in the spotlight, he’s not doing good enough and he’s not worthy of any sort of affection. Delusional? A little. But he’s clearly making an effort to recover at the end of the season, even admitting his attachment to Tadashi.
Even his last race wasn’t meant to end with Langa’s death... it was meant to end with his own. Adam had absolute trust in Langa’s abilities from the beginning, and knew him to be a fair match. My opinion is that he intended to go out in a bang, having been ‘ruined’ in his previous race despite winning it. The only reason Adam lives through the season is that Langa pulled him out of it.
And then we get to how he treats Langa. I firmly believe it was never romantic, and that he simply didn’t know how to separate “respect and platonic admiration” from “romantic adoration”. He flirted, gave gifts, got jealous. He organized an entire tournament to try and get his approval, and is shocked when Langa offers him an open hand and tells him he doesn’t need to be perfect to be appreciated.
I think he really was just looking for a friend, and doing it in all the wrong ways. And his own internalized homophobia and forced heteronormativity isn’t helping at all. It’s clear that Adam is queer from the very beginning, and he’s being forced into a mold that doesn’t fit him. It’s to the point where he throws it all into his S persona so heavily that it’s practically a drag performance.
In short, there’s a lot more depth to the tragic character of Adam than people give credit for, and a good 50% of the fandom seems to have decided to overlook that and call him a creep.
Now, I wonder where we’ve seen that sort of animosity with little basis in the series...

I literally hate everything, I left my good scale at home and the only scale here is literally broken a shit. it gives me like 12 different weights and I'm like which one is fucking right. I've tried everything. stupid fucking scale I want my scale back so bad, it was new glass, and pretty. I wanna go home if I don't have a good working scale with me wtf. I need a new scale I wonder how much it costs.
fuck off, I didn't eat today thank God. finally gonna finish a fucking fast. hopefully I can keep it up tomorrow too an then go the week or 2. fuck I hate my body just lose weight already. I did lose about 4 inches off my waist since June so that's cool, I haven't seen the difference tho I still feel fat and bloated and gross so yea just no food. my body is so tired idk what to do, maybe I should pace more.
remember i said it was going well? clearly i have to ruin things because apparently it is the only thing i know how to do well, i just binge and purge and now i want to cry and kms, shit i was doing so well ... now i’ll try to fast maybe 2 days again and do double the exercise i don’t want to go back to that cycle, please don’t
