The other English-language castmembers include Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cloris Leachman, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin, and Betty White.
The Anime Innovation Tokyo production company (Cencoroll) has begun streaming a 90-second short trailer and a two-minute long trailer for Picograph's Tailenders project on its channel on the YouTube website on Thursday. Anime Innovation Tokyo posted an earlier trailer on the same website last summer. The company describes the plot of the anime as the following:
The destiny of Tomoe Shiro, a formidable racer with a very promising career, experiments an U-turn when a serious accident puts his life at stake. He recovers miraculously , though, when his heart is replaced with the engine of his own racing car. However, because of that very reason, race regulations demote him to the category of a mere mechanical part of the vehicle and is deprived from the right to participate as a pilot in regular races.
Only in a far away colonial planet, along with a multitude of other charismatic pilots also vetoed from participating in regular competitions, he will be given the opportunity to race for his pride and the money of the prize. And so this exciting rally starts!!
