Wrote about Madhouse's phantasmagoric Redline and interviewed creators Koike and Ishii two years ago for stories in the US (here), Japan and Malaysia (here). Now it's finally screening in the US ahead of DVD and Blu Ray releases next month.
via crunchyroll news:
Redline—created by studio Madhouse (Paprika, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars)—is about the biggest and most deadly racing tournament in the universe. Only held once every five years, everyone wants to stake their claim to fame, including JP, a reckless dare-devil driver oblivious to speed limits with his ultra-customized car—all the while, organized crime and militaristic governments want to leverage the race to their own ends. Amongst the other elite rival drivers in the tournament, JP falls for the alluring Sonoshee—but will she prove his undoing, or can a high speed romance survive a mass destruction race?
