English Version Trailer For Anime REDLINE

source Twitchfilm
Back in the early 1990's I was lucky in the UK to have a chance tp follow Manga& Anime when you could go into shops buy various magazines, watch anime on tv that wasn't Pokemon or Beyblade, new videos (it was still video back in those days)out everyweek and you had unlimited resources to find out whats going on. Nowdays thanks to antianime sentsationalised reporting by the rightwing media of UK the fanbase has went more underground or struggles to find where to get new movies/comics, its sad because theres more to anime than just Naruto. I still love to delve in and see what I'm missing but finance prevents me going further because when you have great anime like REDLINE you want to be involved more.
Redline is the creation of Takeshi Koike (Ninja Scroll) and Katsuhito Ishii (Taste of Tea) for Madhouse Studios and the movie will be getting a release in North America soon as for UK & Ireland thats a good question.
It's sad in today society especially in UK & Ireland watching animation or reading manga and your over 25 the media regards you as mentally unstable, if only they understood animation and comic books are for all ages!

trailer after the break...

Every five years, the toughest and most destructive underground car race in the universe, “REDLINE” draws the most elite drivers for a winner-takes-all asphalt battle! JP is a dare-devil reckless driver oblivious to speed limits with his ultra-customized wheels named “Transa Am.” One of his competitors, Sonosee is a hot girl determined to do whatever it takes to stand on the winner’s podium in the REDLINE. In order to win the finals, they’re up against the craziest drivers on the race scene with their deadly and awesome road-tearing vehicles. Moreover the biggest problem for JP is that he secretly is in love with Sonosee!
The only one rule in the race is there are no rules! While cars crash and burn and the courses become a merciless hell, JP whips his ride into a dead heat!
Who will survive to win in this mass-destruction race?! And what about JP’s romance?
