Holy crap, that was actually really awesome! Despite being a 6-minute Anime short promoting a Mercedes Benz car, I really liked the 'story' and characters. :D Animation was great, Production I.G. doesn't disappoint. Need more companies making anime shorts to promote their products. >=D

Awesome. Great for I.G. Productions to have this under their belt.

Awesome! That was really worth 6 mins of watching. Better than Wangan Midnight or Initial D imo.

Still, I could hardly believe that. Mercedes fitting a 6.2 L V8 on a hot hatch? That's unbelievable! Wonder how that car is going to handle with power like that.

Woah haha, that was way more fun than I expected.

So basically, the truck is much better than the Mercedes, eh? Where can I get one?

I'm assuming the Mercedes comes with rotating seats :D If it does, I'm sold~

Yep, that was actually pretty good!

Wow that is quite neat!! I really like the video's idea of Tokyo too! That'll be a great version of Tokyo for the setting of an anime series! Maybe they will make one sponsored by Mercedes Benz? :P

I love all the short anime that advertise the cars. :D

I like the characters in this one too!

That was AWESOME! Much, much better than those mahou shoujo car collaboration projects. This one totally deserves a movie (^^)d
