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 is the pinnacle of what every racing movie inspires to be, fast paced, high octane, absolutely insane, and stunningly beautiful. It does this while all being set to one of my favorite anime soundtracks, so good that it rivals those of FLCL, Cowboy Bebop, Madoka, Attack on Titan, Kill la Killa, and the Monogatari Series (as well as anything else that I missed).

Before you watch Redline, there are a few things that you must know, chief of which is that this movie is not being made for the intellectual. The story is simple and understated, but never aspires to be anything compelling on its read more

Crazy action
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.
