In celebration of Manga Entertainment’s 20th Anniversary, the Redline anime film is scheduled to have a limited theatrical run in LA starting December 2nd, followed by a screening run in New York starting on January 6th, 2012
Redline is a popular anime series created by Madhouse studios (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars, Paprika), and tells the story of JP, a reckless daredevil whose fondness for speed is perfectly suited for his ultra customized car.
JP’s story is set against the backdrop of the most deadly racing tournament in the universe, and a world that is trapped in the middle of organized crime and militaristic governments. Of course, JP’s problem is that out of all the women in the world, he falls in love with the alluring Sonoshee, one of his staunch rivals in the racing tournament.
After Redline’s limited theatrical run, the DVD and Blu-ray releases will follow on January 17th, 2012.
