Love it, but I wish the plot was a bit more polished.

I didn't know hair could be hard enough to kill.

Kind of boring. Didn't really care about anything that was happening and the spectacle wasn't creative enough to engage me on its own.

Trava was better.

Great first and last half.
Middle was a drag and I skipped it the couple of times I rewatched the movie

too much talking, not enough going fast

>>137832141
It needed more short races. Showing off the other racers ability, letting the audience grow some attachment for them.
I think they were going to at one point just because of the ending where everyone is sitting around sweating and panting and smiling up at JP and Sonoshee. Like, I have no reason to believe that any of them like or know each other because of how little time they spent showing them interacting together.
>>
>>137832306
Far as I know, originally there was. It was going to be a show, but considering how long it took to animate it as well as they did, they chopped out almost all the setup and backstory they'd written and just showed the Redline as a movie.
>>
>>137832405
>It was going to be a show,
That would have been awesome, but I guess it was too difficult to make a show if they wanted too kept the animation quality.

I feel like even Trava was going to be a much different show than what Redline ended up as.
I was surprised they didn't give them the mech suit from the shorts though instead of that retarded car.

Some fun facts I found out about Redline:

>JP's name stands for James Punkhead.

>Miki & Todoroki are damn near the only actual humans in the movie; just about everyone else is some weird species of alien. Some are obvious aliens, like Shinkai (Oceanic/Chikulun hybrid) or Trava (Anista hybrid), but even most human-like characters are aliens; for example, Sonoshee is listed as being a species hybrid between a human and an Oceanic. The most curious case, though, is JP. While it's easy to assume he's a human, there's a lot of details that don't add up: his totally unique elf ears, his super-lanky-even-for-a-Koike-character-design physique, the fact that his race is covered up on his bail sheet when he gets out of prison, and the fact that he seems to be totally immune to death.

>giant data-driven crocodile monster Volton takes over is a she, and her name is Wire Girl.

>It was, understandably, a huge pain in the ass to hand draw every frame of the various vehicles of Redline without using any CGI, especially with how nuts all of the designs are. To help with this, the Redline team made some sweet-ass production models of all the cars for animators to use for reference.

>before deciding on a film, the team was considering making Redline into a TV series. In preparation for this, the initial writer meetings saw the entire team fleshing out a very detailed and thorough story bible about the entire Redline world: it included not only a wide-scope view of the entire universe and some of its goings-on, but also detailed histories for each racer. In the initial script for Redline, every single racer would have had as much detail provided on their backstory as JP has in the final movie; unfortunately, most of it had to be cut for time.

14 YEARS HAND DRAWN.
>>
Watched it streamed in a chatroom with other /a/nons soon after it was subbed. Downloaded it, but can never recreate that experience.
>>
>>137834491
7 years, 142 minutes.
Let's say it got 12 episodes at 20 minutes a pop to keep math simple.
That's about 240 minutes of animation they would need.
So yes, that 14 years would be a pretty close figure.
>>
>>137834601
the seven years is because they threw it out at year 4 due to plot reasons, so shouldn't it really be 3 years? Did any of the previous drawing go into the movie, because I though the earlier stuff went into the so so movie "Trava"

>>137831285
great movie, really really wish they didnt have funkyboy and instead made it more about the drivers against one another
-more lynchmaaaaan and johnnyboooooooooooooyyyyyaaaa
-more miki and todoroki
maybe not have the explosive as the final thing that gets them past the finish line

also really wished ending was on a different note

I thought JP was alright, he was a nice mix between cool and humble.
>>
>>137834866
Sounds a bit morbid, but it would have been fantastic if they both died during the final stretch, their faces aren't shown at all for quite some time after the car starts to break up.
>>
I didn't know about the whole 7 years thing but I still enjoyed the movie for what it was. The nice soundtrack was a plus
>>
>>137835112
I find most of the dub characters to be about equal to the japs. The only one I blatantly preferred was Frisbee. His gook voice was awesome.

>>137831285
It was visually spectacular, and a fun B rated movie.
>>
there was this video with a race that had some cool wubwub music I really liked and lost and never found again, sadly
>>
Reminded me of the old speed racer show, the nostalgia I got from it was fun. Plot was pretty bland but the races were top notch.
>>
Sonoshee is love. Sonoshee is life.

The ED was fantastic too. Great love song.

Brilliant avant-garde visual narrative, magnificent character design, world construction and animation

Some people thing that it's just nice animation and colors, they are wrong and don't understand art

Pretty good, by the end they introduced so many interesting things in their world that i was disappointed there wasn't more.

Guess that's a good problem to have if any.

Yeah I agree, Im a hardcore sub dude, but the dub is pretty alright. It fits his personality, kinda like panty and stocking or space dandy. Other than that, sub only and sub forever
>>
>>137834601
My only question is that, animation tech mustve gotten so much better over than span of time, how did the manage to keep the quality consistent?
>>
>>137835829
>that tehy all just start to sound the same, and they actually do

Don't usually defend dubs but honestly it's the same case with subs which is weird since they are meant to have a large pool of VA's.

I fucking love it. It's a fantastic audio-visual experience, and it just oozes character everywhere. It's so fucking dense. I love how much detail there is, not just in the animation, but in the lengths they go to explore the world with things like the introductions for each of the racers by the TV channel, each with their own awesome theme songs. Also the fact that they're racing on the equivalent of space North Korea's nuclear missile development sites is hilarious.

MACHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE HEAD!

It looked nice. And well that's it.

that surprise romance ending
>>
the 7 YEARS HAND DRAWN meme set my expectations too high. Plot was lame and the art wasn't able to make up for it.
>>
>>137831285
I expected better, honestly.
The middle parts building up to the race played it too straight and typical, they really upset the flow of what should have been 100% whacky, over-the-top racing shenanigans in space. Instead we got 70% whacky, over-the-top racing shenanigans in space.
And while I'm certainly not suggesting the political/supermonster subplot should have taken centerfold, I would have really liked a proper conclusion and follow-up for it.

That said it was still a really fun watch and an absolute feast for the eyes that everyone should watch.

Great way to spend the night.
