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?
Ryuuko Matoi is a fiery, feisty girl on a vengeful mission: she’ll find her father’s murderer at all costs, with only a giant red scissor blade as a clue to the villain’s whereabouts. Using the item as a weapon, she fights her way into the terrifying Honnouji Academy to track down a lead, unaware that the institute is brutally governed by a student council that’s anything but ordinary. Wielding special “Goku uniforms”, the group, led by president Satsuki, uses superpowers to keep the student body in check - but things are about to change now that Ryuuko’s in town!
Just to get it out of the way, Redline and Kill la Kill have zero in common story-wise. But if you're looking for a nonstop visual onslaught of colorful/crazy scenes and fist-pumping action, look no further than either of these. If you're looking for another burst of adrenaline either of these will fit the bill.
The plots don't matter for this rec because both these anime are more about their high octane action anyway. They both have slick unique visual styles and hyper stylized action that gives them a very unique look. Redline is about racing and car battles, Kill is about melee fighting but they're both stylized in how the action is presented that they give the same feeling. They both also have a quirky sense of humor and more than a touch of fanservice.
This isn't in the slightest a rec based on plot similarity, rather it's a rec THAT'S MAINLY based on the exhilerating action sequences that are the foundation of both shows.
Each show has an almost excessive amount of crazy, over the top action that just oozes style, partially helped by the highly stylized art design in each show. The action in both rarely, if ever lets up, and is always accompanied by an OST than enhances every scene. The comedy in each is of similar style too, and neither is shy to throw some fanservice at the viewer.
If you enjoyed one, and are looking for the next adrenaline hit, then you could do worse than the other.
Both are visual spectacles, full of weapons-grade awesome hijinx happening at breakneck speeds. The animation styles are vibrant, colourful and manages to inject each frame with more energy than what ought to be possible.
Fans of action-filled anime should not miss out on either of these.
They generate the same fast paced action filled feeling and flow. Art wise they are very similar. Honky humor and absurd characters included.
Both shows give you the exact same feeling of over-the-top funkiness, and both are super fast paced and tend to throw action in your face at every corner that will never give you a moment to breathe. While Kill la Kill is a bit rougher with animation, both use similar, flashy way to present their world, which does generate a really similar feeling. Rule of the cool is omnipresent in both, and fans of others could easily like the other one.
Terulus: a world destroyed by a haywire terraformer where destructive earthquakes, constant danger and wildlife mutations are a fact of life. Those who survived built giant mobile cities to withstand the tremors, and pass the time with dangerous, no-holds-barred races – the same races that caused the famous champion Loser King to go missing a hundred years ago. Determined racer Shiro Tomoe wants nothing more than to live up to the Loser King's legend, but a terrible accident leaves him nearly dead – that is, until Tomoe, an inventor with her own motives, replaces his heart with a prototype engine. Now, Shiro's performance is tied to his very heartbeat, and success, or failure, will determine his fate.
Racing, pounding action, and a really fun cast is what these 2 wonderful titles offer. Both have a very unique animation style to them as well. These 2 could not be a better match for one another. Check em out!
These two can't be more similar - a very flashy, no holds barred race with various critters and humans and nonstop action. Redline is far superior in animation, but honestly, there isn't a better rec than these.
Tailenders and Redline look and feel like they were made by the same company, the art style is verrrry similiar, the characters are a lot alike and the plot is basicly the same: I WANNA GO FAST..
if you liked Redline then you will should give Tailenders a look
If you liked Tailenders you will love Redline
Tailenders is much shorter than Redline- to a fault, but Tailenders is fantastic in it's own right. Both anime encompass a main character that puts everything on the line to win a super-race! If you like Redline, you'll like Tailenders as well, and vice versa!
A race of the best. Mind blowing animation. Unbelievable ending. Fasten your seatbelts because when you watch Tailenders and Redline, your in for the ride of your life through a planet you didn't even think could be raced on. The action and sheer fun of each series will give you goose bumps. Enjoy the ride.
In both Redline and Tailenders, racing is serious business. The racers in both of these anime lay everything on the line in order to win races in pretty extreme conditions. Both of these anime also have some pretty crazy looking characters and unique animation style.
For Pandy and Retro, waking up naked with amnesia wasn't the high point of their day. While going on a crime spree, the duo are captured and sent to the infamous Dead Leaves, a notorious prison where the baddest of the bad are sent. Using the bathroom is a chore, eating is force fed and escape seems impossible -- but is it? Join Pandy, Retro, the drill endowed Chinko Drill and a gang of inmates as they plot their escape from the hell that is Dead Leaves!
Bizzare, ugly, weird, brassy, kickass, in-one's-face anime titles. Think there's nothing quite like what you just watched? Enjoy some more of the same. Redline's animation is more eye-popping, and Dead Leaves is far more strongly skewed to potty humour but they feel fairly similar.
If you want action and some amazing unique animation to follow check these 2 titles out. Dead Leaves is a little strange humour wise where Redline is all about speed and the race but both have a similar feel that will pull you in and take you for a wild ride.
Both movies are chockfull of attitude and cool visuals. The animation styles are very similar: both are cartoony and use stark shading to great effect. Redline has more plot and better animation, but both are very similar (and unique) and are fun, action-packed romps.
Both of these movies have extreme visuals that are quirky and flashy with bounds of zany characters and over-the-top action mixed in. Dead Leaves is a lot more crude, though both feature main characters who'll do what they want the way they want to. Fans of one should enjoy the other and should brace for the inevitable blood pumping.
Linne Amagame has just begun her first day of high school... in purgatory?! After running late in the land of the living and getting run over by a semi truck, Linne found herself stuck in a world where her classmates are demons and monsters instead of cute boys. To make matters worse, there’s been a mix-up, as she isn’t dead yet! Now, surrounded by half-decayed dogs and satanic Elvis impersonators, what’s a once-normal school girl to do, and is there any way to get out of this hell?!
Two movies by studio Madhouse, featuring crazy animation, over-the-top action, rock'n'roll drive... and not that much of a story, character development or common sense. Nevertheless, both are fun to watch and recommended for each other.
Yes, theyr'e both recent films released by Madhouse which have bizarre, styling and striking animation, saddled with plots that often seem entirely besides the point compared to the specatcle.
But more than that, Redline and Hells Angels are works with an abiding love of kitsch. The greasy hair of the drivers and designs that harken back to 1970s anime on the one hand, and a garish demonic Elvis and a weird world of distorted people on the other. As weird as both stories are, they're also basically pulp narratives - racing on a galactic scale or a supernatural visit to a high school Hell.
Both films are really similar in tone, looks and a heavy focus on action instead of plot or character developtment. Both are good fun and a real treat for the eyes, so fans of either should check out the other.
Both are movies made by Madhouse, with both being totally crazy, and filled with utterly over the top action. Plot and character development are almost entirely done away with, with the action and bizarre, yet stunning visuals taking center stage in both.
If you liked one then it's probably fair to say that you're a fan of crazy animation and over the top action, so the other should definitely appeal to you.
In the 21st century, mankind has finally expanded its reach into the corners of space. After a narrow victory years ago against their enemies, the Crogs, humanity’s peace is again threatened – but this time, they are saved from an external force known as the Avatar. He offers them a chance to enter the Great Race of Oban and compete for the ultimate prize; and man, with the alternative of defeat at the hands of the Crogs, enters. Meanwhile, Eva is a young girl whose father, the famous race manager Don Wei, left her alone in a boarding school years ago; and she has not heard from him since. Upon tracking him down, Don does not recognize his daughter and treats her harshly; so Eva dubs herself Molly, gets a job as a mechanic on the team, and ultimately tags along with Earth’s star racing team to participate in the Oban Race. Fierce opponents and racetracks stand in their way – will Earth’s team be successful?
I'm astonished that no one else has recommended these two together - galactic space race with tons of wacky characters/aliens? These two can't be more perfect together.
If you like racing in space surrounded by aliens and lots of fast paced action look no further than these 2 titles. Both have a lovely Star Wars epsiode 1 feel to them as well. Oban is slightly more childish in tone where Redline is very mature but both fit together lovely.
Redline and Obans stories differ fairly greatly. The reason these are cross reccomended is because of the focus on futuristic racing on both. If you like the action of one you will like the other.
