To quote the entry on TVTropes.org—because I just don’t have the vocabulary and technical and historical knowledge to do justice to REDLINE’s animation:
"Visually, it’s easy to see that Koike is a huge fan of western graphic art, and has been influenced as much by French comic artist Jean "Moebius" Giraud, the US animated film Heavy Metal, cult UK sci-fi comic 2000 AD, and even the Star Wars movies as much as he has by the likes of Katsuhiro Otomo, Hiroyuki Imaishi or Leiji Matsumoto. Not that REDLINE feels or looks like a mash-up of different styles – somewhere in the visual chaos it unrelentingly throws at its audience it becomes something that is far more than the mere sum of parts, a unique piece of animation that at times doesn’t even feel like anime in the traditional sense."
There. It will throw you right in the middle of the action complete with power up music and introduce you to racers and distinct characters driven by unending supply of hot blooded determination and sheer awesome. The world building is consistent and has its own little share of political plots and diplomatic concerns. I have to watch it again. If Eiga Sai ever features this film in my country, I will shed tears of excitement, head to the theaters, and let it all take me away.Image source
