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 that this series was written by Kosuke Fujishima, author of the "Oh My Goddess!" and "You're Under Arrest", being a fan of "You're Under Arrest" and hearing good things about "Oh My Goddess!", I became interested in checking it out. After seeing that it wasn't as popular as his other works, I went into eX-Driver with moderately set expectations that I would get at least some entertainment out of the six episodes. And after watching it, I can easily see why this wasn't as popular or well remembered as his other works.

Set at some point in the 22nd century, people no longer read more

eX-driver doesn't have the best storyline or the best character development you'd expect in modern animes.
Most people can say it's just another car anime from the 90s like Initial D, but is it really?
No. When you first watch it, you get the impression that it's a rather odd anime, because it is, and this sensation latches on you as you watch more and more and it's hard to say why without spoiling anything. Not that the story is godly, but because it's just something you have to watch 3 episodes and get used to.

It's not like the other car animes out there like Shaokotan read more
