Synopsis

In the year 2048, people are raving about a fighting race called “Immortal Grand Prix”, or IGPX in short, which is faster and more exciting than any of the existing motor sports. The phenomenon is so big that an entire city was built for the racing industry where competitions take place on a huge track. In the “Immortal Grand Prix,” two teams of three IG machines, high-tech humanoid mechs driven by humans, race at speeds greater than 400km/h. The teams make three laps of a 60 km course while intercepting the opponent as they vie for a first place finish. The best machine performance, the best pilots and the best teamwork are the only factors that can make them the winners.

Overview:
IGPX is a speck of gold ore in the seemingly automated production of Shounen muck. Whether this charms you or Bleach does, there`s very little room to argue which Anime has the better pacing and scene direction. IGPX is a quality Shounen work that can easily appeal to people who aren't fans of the genre.

As a racing Anime infused with martial arts, its closest relatives are not Naruto or DBZ, but instead Hajime no Ippo, Kenichi, and Slam Dunk. Structured competition is the core of IGPX. In that list, and including any anime I have ever seen, IGPX contains the best read more

I'm writing this because the other reviews have rated IGPX is less than ten and the anime only averages a seven. I find this deeply wrong. Never before has an anime impressed me as much as IGPX. This is a passionate plea for anyone looking at the page to go watch it.

IGPX is animated by Production I.G., so high quality is to be expected. While the characters and scenery are all beautifully animated, the mecha/race sequences are entirely CGI. Thankfully, the CGI is more than enough to look good on the track, yet is kept seperate from the non-race scenes as to not be jarring. read more

IGPX

Story ~
IGPX has one of the best story line I have seen, to be topped only by Kanon and MAYBE FaTe Stay Night. The story is interesting and it is really addicting once you started to watch it. I seen the whole thing like five times... all 26 episod.

Art ~
The art isn't too bad for the time it was aired, of course most anime aired in 2007 and Q1 Q2 of 2008 are far better like Clannad, Shippuuden, and One Piece HD. But it is definitely at the top at its time.

Sound ~
I personally really like the OT's guitar solo at the beginning, the closing read more

Recommendations

IGPX and Air Gear have similar sports. Both the IGP and A-T involve ranked teams competing, battling, and maneuvering obstacles. The mechs in IGPX are really just a larger, form of a human on an A-T. Both are shounen animes with battle/racing and big emphasis on teamwork as an ambitious leader tries to take his team to the top.
The thrilling action of sci-fi racing with cars or mecha like vehicles are just what these two anime series are about.

Both are filled with a great story and characters with lots of great races and victories.

So if you like sci-fi race anime both these anime series are pretty recommend worthy!
Searching for actioned packed racing with awesome characters? Then these anime series might be something for you.

Both revolve around sci-fi racing and are really nice as a whole so if you like this genre make sure to check it!
Both series feature fast pace mecha action with a sub tone of romance and humor. Both also features a main character who loves and has natural talent for piloting mechs and teammates who support them along the way as they strive to improve.
Sci-fi racing that's what these anime series are about, if you like this kind of genre you might like this anime as well!
Both feature giant robots in a tournament-style competition.
