Fasten your seatbelts! This full-throttle gearhead anime sees daredevil driver JP fight for survival in the fast and furious world of underground racing, with the dream of competing – and maybe evening winning – the galaxy’s most popular race, the deadly, risk-filled Redline. Unhinged, breathless and totally unique, this visual stunner from veteran animator Takeshi Koike (Ninja Scroll, Memories, The Animatrix) bends and warps the rules of anime to present a nitrous-powered big-screen experience that the likes of Dom Toretto can only dream of.


Introduced by Michael Leader and Jake Cunningham, co-hosts of the podcast Ghibliotheque and co-authors of the Ghibliotheque Anime Movie Guide, which charts a path through the wildly creative and influential anime industry with 30 standout feature films, from Akira to Your Name.
