Original TV Anime Skate-Leading Stars 1st PV Announces July 2020 Premiere, OP Song by Takuo Sakuma

Goro Taniguchi (Code Geass) serves as general director at J.C.STAFF



The official website for the forthcoming figure skating-themed original TV anime Skate-Leading Stars has started streaming a 65-second first PV to announce its premiere in Japan in July 2020. You can also listen to the anime's OP song "Chase the core" performed by the ex-Fo'xTails singer Takao Sakuma.


The four-member rock band Fo'xTails disbanded in August 2018 after its four-year activities releasing seven singles and one album from Lantis. "Chase the core" is written/composed/arranged by R・O・N and will be released as Sakuma's solo singer debut single from Lantis on July 15, 2020. 


Toshinori Fukushima (MAJOR) is attached to direct alongside the general director Goro Taniuchi (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion) and the original character designer Yana Toboso (Black Butler manga series). J.C.STAFF (A Certain Magical Index, Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) works on anime production.





"You'll never beat me." Kensei Maeshima quit figure skating after the words from his rival Reo Shinozaki. A few years later, when Maeshima becomes a high school student, he makes use of his motor nerves to spent his days as a helper in various club activities without devoting himself to anything. One day, he watches a press conference in which his rival Shinozaki switches from a single skater to the skate-leading, an original figure skate team competition. Then, a boy named Hayato Sasugai appears in front of him. He also seems to know that Maeshima had previously performed as a single skater, and invites him to the world of the skate-leading, saying "I need you."
