Anime Winter: Skate Leading Stars (2021). Bored with anime like that, try watching anime with genre music. One of the anime with the music genre that will be present in Winter 2021 is Skate-Leading☆Stars.

Although fans of anime music are not as many as fans of action or shounen anime, you shouldn’t look down on them.

Anime with a music genre has its uniqueness, if you are bored watching anime with a fairly heavy storyline, you can first switch to anime that is light enough to watch. Usually, anime with music genres are not too complicated for the storyline.

From the graphic quality for the Skate-Leading☆Stars anime which is pretty good, you can check out the promotional video for this anime below. For the story, it is not known for sure what it will be like in the future, after I read the synopsis, it is still unclear what this anime will look like.

Synopsis Skate Leading Stars

Skate-leading is a fictional figure skating competition, where each team contains five skaters to display their abilities to earn points. There are 3 positions in the skating competition, namely point-getters, twist-lifts, and lifts.

Figure skater Kensei Maeshima then stopped his career after hearing those words from his rival, Reo Shinozaki. Moving on to high school, Maeshima never committed to one thing anymore, he used his physical talent to help with various activities.

Until one day, Shinozuka announced that he had switched from single skate to skate-leading (team skates).

Then Maeshima meets a boy named Hayato Sasugai, who learns of the solo skating career that he once had.
