Redline is by no means new. It’s a movie two years old that only got a video release this year. But I’m not cheating here when I put the entire film as a moment. They don’t make this sort of anime movies often (for a good reason–it costs damn too much). It’s as relevant to the western anime audience as Macross Plus and Cowboy Bebop, since it’s a work that you could show to anyone who hasn’t even seen a single anime.
Really, there’s so much to get from this film. I might be in the minority, but I really liked the middle, the racer interviews and all. They were quite clever and did the job of endearing us to the characters well.
