Tailenders



New anime about a race car driver who gets in an accident and has his heart replaced with the engine of his car. I can't decided if that premise wreaks of everything that is wrong with anime today (i.e. just taking out of left field concepts and throwing them together) or if it sounds totally awesome.

Anyway he gets barred from racing, and finds some fringe racing league that lets you get away with things like having an engine for a heart.

The trailer looks beautiful and I'm already in love with the art style. It looks "Gurren Lagaanie "
enough to be able to able to pull off the ridiculous premise with some highly stylized artwork.

I'll give it a look when it is released.
