In a time where hover cars reign supreme and wheeled vehicles are a thing of the past, one group of dedicated speedsters aim for the ultimate goal: to compete in the notorious "Redline" race. In a no-holds-barred battle where anything goes from nitro boosters to all-out warfare and dirty tactics, competitors must be prepared for anything. Having lost out in the qualifying Yellowline race, "Sweet" JP finally gets the chance to participate in Redline as a substitute. However, with his car requiring a total rebuild, the Roboworld government using all their military might to prevent the race from happening, and host of the universe’s best racers – including the beautiful Sonoshee Maclaren – to contend with, can JP go for glory and take the checkered flag?
Both of these titles are highly stylized sharp in contrast and possess deep crisp lines in art.
The titles are not similar, but both revolve around action and vehicles.
Both are also one shot titles. If you really dug Redline's art style, you might enjoy an 80's take on labor of love visuals.
Riding Bean is a one episode OAV by the creator of Gunsmith Cats. Its lead charater is Bean Bandit, aka, 'The Roadbuster'. Bean operates as a contract driver; for good or for bad, if you have the money, he can do the job. This time though, he's been framed for kidnapping the daughter of a wealthy businessman. Good thing Bean is bulletproof.
If you want an anime set in North America, with cars and action, with a semi-higher end OAV action, you could not fare much worse than either of these titles.
Riding bean is a bit more seedy, while Crisis is a bit more upbeat.
