12 Days of Anime 2013, Day 5: MOVE OVER, REDLINE

MOVE OVER REDLINEMOVE OVER, REDLINE! THERE’S A NEW KING OF RACING ANIMATION IN TOWN!

that's it, this show wins everythingI mean seriously, take a minute to appreciate all the little details that make this one short clip from the show so amazing. The background that loops after less than two seconds. The fact that there’s a baby driving a car shaped like a hammerhead shark with teeth and I’m not even sure what those accessories are supposed to b- are those stroller wheels on the front? I don’t know, the gif won’t stay still long enough for me to tell. Mister Judge flies through the air and bounces off of this car as if it’s a trampoline, and it explodes into a hilariously poorly-integrated fireball and ridiculous particle effects. Seven hand drawn years ain’t got nothin’ on this.

If you haven’t seen INFERNO COP yet, what on EARTH are you waiting for. There are thirteen episodes and they’re like five minutes each, and they’re all available officially, legally, for free, on Youtube, with subtitles that occasionally have cute Engrish grammatical mistakes in them for supplemental hilarity. Here’s a playlist that plays all the episodes in order for you, so you don’t even have to do anything, complete with bonus “Fact File” episodes.

I honestly couldn’t tell you anymore if I prefer Imaishi’s work with a budget or without a budget. He can put out some awe-inspiring animation if he’s got the cash for it, but his stupid low-budget gag stuff is just the funniest crap.

    Hellfire Boy gave his life so our hero could win that race. A worthy sacrifice, indeed.
