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?
While one is a 101 minute tour de force and the other is a cheerful music video both are brightly coloured audio/visual assaults. (In the most enjoyable way, of course.)
Both Redline and The TV Show showcase eye-popping animation style - the visuals are key. Each has a barebones minimalist story and this is relayed with speed and graphically styled flare. Pacing is fast and constantly moving, perfect for the ADD generation. The plots zooms by with nary a moment for breath, hyper action pushing the story ever forward. If you like fast and furious action, each of these delivers and makes their point in a souped-up highly colored and excessive animation style.
Both are stylish music video anime. They both have a similar feel (especially when the multiple realities begin to blend together). Things get more and more chaotic towards the end of both music videos.
Songs from the same artist and similar animation from the same studio, this is an obvious recommendation.
Cat Soup is an extremely abstract, abnormal, and at times, disturbing adventure, from the director of Nadesico. This 30 minute OVA follows two kittens through what seems to be the underworld, as they search for one of their lost souls. Along the way, they encounter new (edible) friends, scary situations, and even the end of the world! Will these felines manage to return unscathed? Or more importantly, avoid becoming the main course for dinner? Confusion abounds in this quirky OVA.
What is real? Why, where and when is it real? These are the questions both Cat Soup and The TV Show ask. With these you will never know what you are seeing until they show you the next scene that you will not understand until you see the next one that you will not understand... The overall feeling is therefore very similar.
If you liked one, give the other a try, you'll thank me later.
