Tomoe Shiro, a formidable racer with a very promising career, experiments a U-turn when a serious accident puts his life at stake. He recovers miraculously though when his heart is replaced with the engine of his own racing car. However, because of that very reason, race regulations demote him to the category of a mere mechanical part of the vehicle and is deprived from the right to participate as a pilot in regular races. Only in a far away colonial planet, along with a multitude of other charismatic pilots also vetoed from participating in regular competitions, will he be given the opportunity to race for his pride and the money of the prize. And so this exciting rally starts!!

I never thought that a single 27 min episode would be good enough for a movie.. stunningly enough Tailenders broke the record in this case, utilizing a meager half an hour this movie gave me an unexpectedly good and entertaining experience.

The story is set in future when mankind plants Terraformers on planets in an attempt to colonize them. By going haywire Terraformers produce disastrous consequences of tectonic shifts, environmental changes and 'stampede'.The protagonist, having an engine as his heart, must now participate in a precarious race with the Terraformer as the final destination risking his life to achieve what the Loser King couldn't 100 ...

I spent a couple of minutes trying to find info on Tailenders but came up with very little. This 27-minute short movie has often been compared to the phenomenal full movie Redline, either favorably or derisively for being a copy. Oddly enough, Tailenders aired a mere month after Redline’s debut at the Locarno International Film Festival. It would’ve basically been impossible for it to have been made in that timeframe even as short as it is. It’s much more likely Tailenders took inspiration from what little they saw in the Redline pilot in January 2009, because if they went completely without encountering it than this ...

Disappointing. The "Movie" gives no time for character development, so as you go through the badly explained and clichéd script you don't even care about the characters. Also the movie seems to be extremely scruffy, I felt seeing a reupload of an all cut movie from youtube, actually I thought that was it and right after I was done I tried to find info about his missing pieces, but in fact there wasn't, that was the movie. But it has some good features of the movie, like the character design, I was really hyped to see what the pink haired girl would do in the ...
