IGPX -- Immortal Grand Prix Impression

IGPX or Immortal Grand Prix. The latest addition to Toonami's programming block, but one you must raise an eyebrow to. This series was created by and for Cartoon Network, and I must say it's animation is flawless. The story, actually it pretty basic anime fare. Young group, in this case a team, has to grow and overcome adversity all the while expanding their already heightened skills. The setting, not so ordinary. It's all about giant racing robots in future.

Now it was groundbreaking news when The Big O received new episodes due to demand from the U.S. At the time it was unheard of that the U.S. market could drive anything anime related. Heck just a few years ago the true Otaku were reduced to fan-subs to get the best series. Now the demand is growing and we get to experience more and more, and even add to the creativity.

Well, I'll be keeping an eye on this series because if it goes well hopefully there will be more, and more means we won't have to wait for a series to get over here, it will start here, good times. Oh, one last thing, does anyone remember when all good video game development was done in the Land of the Rising Sun? Those days are over, and I think that very soon the same will be said for anime.

  2. I looked over some of the animes and such that you were mentioning, and I've one to suggest to you. Not sure if you've heard of it, but it's a manga by CLAMP called X-1999. It has an excellent storyline, deep characters and will keep you glued to your seat reading for hours... The anime isn't as good as the manga, but it's still done very well and will probably have a different ending than the manga. (The manga isn't finished yet... :( ) Check it out though, and maybe review it on the blog or something.
