SK8 the Infinity Episode 7 Spoilers

In episode 6, Reki, Langa, and Miya travel towards Miyakojima. Reki is still recovering from the injuries he received during his race with Adam, and everyone seems to think that spending some time in the hot springs in Miyakojima will be good for him. Shadow is forced to tag along as a chaperone. On the boat ride to their destination, the group comes across Cherry and Joe, who are also going to Miyakojima.

Having spent almost all his life in the mountains of Canada, Langa is enamored by the beach. The group spends a considerable time there, playing beach volleyball, swimming, and floating. As usual, Joe flirts with a couple of women, making Reki and Shadow envious. As the two of them argue on how to prank Joe, Miya walks straight up to the tattooed skater and starts calling him “dad.” This spooks the girls away. Meanwhile, Tadashi informs Adam that Inspector Kiriko Kamata is behind the recent crackdown on the “S” race. Adam later runs into Kamata at a hotel entrance.

Reki, Langa, and Miya discover what kind of accommodation one can get for a measly 3,000 yen: a cramped room with a table fan in a homely inn. Reki’s misery only increases when Shadow tells him that the inn won’t provide any dinner. Joe comes to their rescue and takes them to where Cherry is staying- the high-end inn across the street. Joe declares that Cherry will pay for the dinner, much to Cherry’s dismay.

Reki is somewhat depressed about how quickly Langa is improving as a skater as well as his own stagnation in that regard. He has a candid conversation with Joe. The group later decides to race towards the hot spring. Joe and Cherry arrive there before anyone else and bicker about who was first. The other four run into some odd people covered in mud. The episode ends as the group wonders who these people were back on their boat ride. In episode 7, Adam might find a way to deal with Kamata. Here is the trailer for the next episode.
