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 animated films are visually stunning (with a ton of ugly characters) and the work of quite distinctive animators. Mind Game, admittedly, is the deeper film, deconstructing the shiftless spinelessness of a twentysomething man with pity, wit and derision (funny though, honest) while Redline's mostly a big gaudy spectacle with some heart around the edges. Anyway, either anime film is worth checking out.
Makoto Tsukimoto (nicknamed Smile) is a quiet high-schooler who's been friends with the loud and energetic Yukata Hoshino (nicknamed Peco) since childhood. They're both in the local table tennis club and both have a natural talent for it, although Smile's personality always enables him from winning against Peco. The club teacher, however, notices Smile's talent and tries to make him gain some sportive tenacity.
I'd like to link Mind Game and Ping Pong strictly for the animation, they're very similar, I find them quite unique and artsy and a good alternative for the common anime being drawn all these years out there, I also think the humor is quite similar, I even thought they were both from the same company but they're not. Bare in mind that plot-wise they are nothing alike... But if you into this kind of art style like myself, then give them a try.
Edit: after a closer research I found out that Masaaki YUASA is actually the Director of MindGame and PingPong. I knew there was some connection :D
Two shows with a very high pace, eccentric art and humor, while at the same time holding a fair share of philosophy. Both these shows will make you think even if the presentation is somewhat unorthodox (expect a lot of colours and nonconform art- and animationstyles).
The only difference in the two shows is that it's more a recommendation of style and pace, rather than plot. In other words: if you like the plot of either of these shows but hated everything else, this recommendation is not for you.
A dog named Matt has a serious sexual problem. He decided to visit a detective agency known that there is a most beautiful woman in a town...
Similar in pace, style and even general plot. Both shows are essentially shows filled to the brim with violence and sex. Artstyle and animation style are also similarly abstract and crude.
The main difference is that where Mind Game has a philosophical side to it, Sex and Violence with Mach Speed is a lot more crude and stays more near the surface.
If you are looking for some high octane enjoyment, check Sex and Violence with Mach Speed out. If you are looking for soemthign similar to Sex and Violence with Mach Speed, but felt that the short lacked depth and/or was a bit too violent/sexual, check Mind Game out.
