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.
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?
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.
Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels. His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned. Their fight for adventure just turned into a war for the survival of the human race - will their lust for freedom hold out against such terrible odds?
While they have different plots, both Tailenders and Gurren Lagann are packed with over-the-top action. They both also have a simular artstyle. Gurren Lagann is alot better than Tailenders in my opinion, but I still think that if you like one your should check out the other.
These two action packed anime feature a special type of animation style and a go-getter male lead that will leave you panting as you try to keep up with him in these two fast paced shows.
Two flashy, highly manly thrill rides - though Tailenders is nonstop action, and TTGL has more of a story. Similar animation styles as well.
Following the disaster wrought upon the world by a mysterious being called ‘Akira’, Neo Tokyo is now in social and economic turmoil. In such a decaying city, feisty Kaneda and his shy friend Tetsuo survive by running around in a biker gang, chasing local rivals and generally evading the police. Everything changes, however, when Tetsuo crashes into a strange-looking boy during a bike chase and the military ends up taking him away. When he eventually returns to his friends, he’s no longer the same weak little boy they always knew – in fact, a military experiment has turned him into something beyond human imagination. While the military is intent on reclaiming its specimen at any cost, Tetsuo is sick of being bullied around and is about to show everyone, including his friend Kaneda, exactly who is boss.
I found that the animation in Tailenders closely resembled that of Akira in certain aspects, and the gritty appeal of the dirty and broken artistry is really neat in both. The storylines couldn't be farther apart, but if you liked one, you will probably like the other.
Sena was always a weak child, constantly having to run away from bullies; so much, that he became good at it. Now, as a teenager, Sena’s skill at running has become so impressive that the diabolical mastermind of the school football team notices his talent and recruits him. Yet to keep his privacy intact and his dangerous hobby a secret from his overprotective childhood friend Mamori, Sena is forced to develop a secret identity: the ace running back, Eyeshield 21! But the world is full of talented rivals, and Sena has a long way to go until he can reach the top...
Some of the color usage in Tailenders reminded me of Eyeshield 21's composition. While the stories are nothing alike, the vibrant colors and action-filled scenes are pretty cool in both. If you like one, I think you will like the other.
Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...
Some of the color usage in Tailenders reminded me of FLCL's composition. While the stories are nothing alike, the vibrant colors and odditties were. Towards the end one of the characters even resembles the tv-headed guy from FLCL. If you like one, I'm pretty confident that you will like the other.
