Synopsis

Tomoe Shiro, a formidable racer with a very promising career, experiments a U-turn when a serious accident puts his life at stake. He recovers miraculously though when his heart is replaced with the engine of his own racing car. However, because of that very reason, race regulations demote him to the category of a mere mechanical part of the vehicle and is deprived from the right to participate as a pilot in regular races. Only in a far away colonial planet, along with a multitude of other charismatic pilots also vetoed from participating in regular competitions, will he be given the opportunity to race for his pride and the money of the prize. And so this exciting rally starts!!

I never thought that a single 27 min episode would be good enough for a movie.. stunningly enough Tailenders broke the record in this case, utilizing a meager half an hour this movie gave me an unexpectedly good and entertaining experience.

The story is set in future when mankind plants Terraformers on planets in an attempt to colonize them. By going haywire Terraformers produce disastrous consequences of tectonic shifts, environmental changes and 'stampede'.The protagonist, having an engine as his heart, must now participate in a precarious race with the Terraformer as the final destination risking his life to achieve what the Loser King couldn't 100 read more

Anime: Redline
Both movies are galactic racing series pumped with spectacular colorful animation, dirty weapon-filled demolition racing, and enough badass adrenaline to kill several large elephants. Both series have a comic style set in space, and the down-on-his-luck protagonist has to rebuild himself and his resolve to win the race and get the girl at sacrifice of his own body. The only real difference is that Redline had more funding and talent behind it, so there is more polish and less restraint.

Anime: Oban Star-Racers
"Tailenders" and "Oban Star-Racers" are both anime focused on racing where a lot is at stake.

In these races, the situation is a free-for-all where violence often comes into play.

Anime: Karas
Both: Mysterious girl with goggles gives superhuman powesr to a guy so he can work for her for a greater battle with an upgraded physcial body. Also the art styles are very 'sharp'.

Anime: Dead Leaves
Both are fast-paced and rather crazy story-wise. The animation is also similar.

Anime: Trava
Similar animation, but Trava is more slow.
