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, more than five years in the making. Redline is an anime about racing, only presented like nothing we have seen before. Produced by Madhouse, with second key animation by 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.

If you've seen a film about racing before, then you know how the plot in such a film tends to unfold. Essentially it isn't so different in Redline, but the larger than life presentation coupled with the phenomenal experience this film brings read more

Redline... I found the gem in lurking in youtube and was blown away by the visuals. Little research I made on film it said it has been in development cycle already for 7 years. I really don't think this film should getting much criticism on story or character development thus it's a racing film, what do you expect?

--Story--> 7

Story is so-so for a racing movie. Little predictable but you will enjoy it nonetheless. Story is about racer trying to win races and government being baddies. Pretty standard plot, don't expect any deep plot development.

Art is the selling point of why you should watch the read more

Recommendations

Crazy action
Both shows have a similar kinetic style of animation. Whereas "Redline" is directed and storyboarded by Takeshi Koike with some key animation by Hiroyuki Imaishi, "Dead Leaves" is directed by Imaishi with some key animation by Koike. Although Dead Leaves is shorter than Redline, both shows are not plot-centric, putting the main focus on the spectacular visuals. However, the premises of the two shows are not related.
