Synopsis

Redline is about the biggest and most deadly racing tournament in the universe. Only held once every five years, everyone wants to stake their claim to fame, including JP, a reckless dare-devil driver oblivious to speed limits with his ultra-customized car—all the while, organized crime and militaristic governments want to leverage the race to their own ends. Amongst the other elite rival drivers in the tournament, JP falls for the alluring Sonoshee—but will she prove his undoing, or can a high speed romance survive a mass destruction race?

Takeshi Koike's debut feature; seven years in the making. Redline is an anime about racing, only presented like nothing seen before. Produced by Madhouse, with second key animation from Gainax, music from James Shimoji and a cast and crew pumped with everlasting potential, this is certainly one of - if not the - most adrenaline filled anime film to date.

As a film about racing, the plot is fairly standard fare, but the larger than life presentation coupled with the sheer imagination and creativity that has gone into Redline is second to none. The story - despite cliches - is both exhilarating and incredibly well paced. read more

This movie was so much fun to watch. The story is short and simple. Awesome an eccentric racers, driving crazy vehicles, in a anything go’s race, that is Redline. The story move’s fast which fits the theme. Its written in linear progression with the exception of a few flashbacks. These are used to add extra emotional depth to the core characters which I thought made the story exceptional. For a show thats all about fun which it was, these character bonds crafted through the writing really stood out amongst all the ridiculousness. The story isn’t complex by any means but the wonderful thing about this read more

Recommendations

Both have fast animation with a lot of explosions and action. Also, Sonoshee reminds a little Yoko.
Both of these have similar character designs and overall atmosphere to them. They both know not to take themselves too seriously and manage to both be extremely entertaining. Basically it's Redline without cars and in SPACE.
