Product Description

The most dangerous and exciting car race in the universe is held only once every five years. And that's tonight. The competitors are lined up at the starting block. In his vehicle, JP, the most daredevil driver on the circuit, is ready for the green light. Female driver Sonoshee, with whom he is secretly in love, is also on the starting line. She will stop at nothing to get on to that podium. In this race, not only is anything possible, but also anything is allowed. The film is produced by the studio MADHOUSE (Ninja Scroll, Summer Wars), directed by Takeshi Koike (The Animatrix's "World Record") and written by Katsuhito Ishii (Piroppo, Trava).

I acquired the Japanese Special Edition when it was released (put it on preorder as soon as it became available) and it is the Blu-Ray to beat for Audio/Visual quality of anime. The Audio and video are just about perfect and reference quality. The only thing truly not quite up to par on the Japanese release is the English subtitles.

When the date for the UK release was FINALLY finalized, I had to decide whether to wait for the US version at a later date or import the UK release. Well it became obvious the US was not going to get a collectors edition (confirmed by Manga themselves) and the UK Collector's Edition cost is right about the same as the US release pre-order list price... so I went with this UK release. The subtitles are noticeably improved and I do enjoy the Japanese w/ English subtitles a lot more now (my preferred way to watch for other reasons discussed later.) English Dub was ok as far as acting, but JP's character comes across more goofy with mannerisms like a surfer/greaser combined rather than cool and collected. And Sonoshee has some really b****y dialog moments that changes her character into something less classy and charming than she was before. With much more language and innuendo added in the English dub it definitely deserves an R/Mature rating now - the Japanese with English subtitles would still be PG-13/R borderline equivalent. Below is text of my review from Blu-Ray.com for the UK Collectors Edition release of Redline, no need for me to rewrite a new review from scratch:

MOVIE
Redline is an anime movie with a rather straightforward plot about racing and goals, it's not a deep or serious movie. It was made for the sole purpose to have a fun experience watching...and it excells greatly in doing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good BluRay for an amazing film. 9 Nov 2011
A month ago I was lucky enough to catch REDLINE on the big screen during the Camera Japan Festival in Rotterdam, and it blew the entire audience away. The story sure is simple enough and built around clichees, but that does not harm the film in any way. For the sole purpose of REDLINE is to present viewers with the feeling of accelaration, and the goofy charm of having the good guy win over seemingly insurmountable odds by sheer use of adrenaline. Well, that and nitro. Lots of nitro!

Over 7 years in the making, the whole film is meticulously hand-drawn, no 3D-cgi models were involved. In fact, cgi has only been used to embellish gleaming surfaces, color effects and such. It looks amazing and urge everyone to try and see this in HD at the very least.

And now we have Manga UK's BluRay which is pretty much flawless. The image rocks, the sound is True HD for both Japanese and English soundtracks, and the extras include one extra race (a try-out promo made five years before the main feature) and a whopping 67 minute "Making of" which delivers the goods. The 18-page booklet contains extra interviews and a small essay. All in all a very good release, especially for this price!

5.0 out of 5 stars It Blew My Mind 10 Jan 2012
This Movie has reminded me why I started watching Anime in the first place. I usually decide on how good a film is by it's storyline and characters, and while this film does have a decent plot where it really shines is it's art, designs and race scenes. The film took 7 years to make and is composed of 100,000 hand drawn pictures, no CG. The film uses an experimental art style which looks amazing. because of the long development every scene is great and is full of life. The designs for the characters, locations and vehicles are very creative, the film even has some what-the-heck moments. The middle section of the film is kind of slow moving, the section between the two races, there are some funny scenes and watching the characters interact is very fun. The story, in my opinion is the weakest part of the film, it's very predictable and there is little to no character development. Now for the races and this is where the film really pays it's way, The animation is unbeatable with mind bending chases and physics, each crash, explosion, nirtos speed boost and hair pin turn is executed perfectly. You should defiantly watch this as it is a one of a kind film.
