When I first heard about this anime I thought It was going to be similar to Wangan Midnight, with street racing and tons of cars. I was wrong.

Story: A future where cars are controlled by computers, and a team of gasoline powered classic car drivers chase them down when they go haywire, sounds like a very repetitive plot. But it turn out it's not, I wont ruin the plot, so ill just say there's events that keep the plot going.

When I saw this was written by Kōsuke Fujishima, author of “Oh My Goddess!” and “You're Under Arrest”, I became mildly interesting in eX-Driver. I've found parts in his other series kinda fun, so I went into this hoping to get some fun out of it too. After watching it, I can see why this wasn't as popular as his other woks.

Set at some point in the 22nd century, people no longer drive cars themselves, instead of relying on a computer with an artificial intelligence to drive for them. But when the AI systems start losing control, a team call eX-Drivers (or eX-D for short) read more
