One day, he meets Merry, a beautiful girl who came from the world of dreams. The television anime will premiere in Japan on January 6, 2011.
The Nico Nico Douga website began streaming an 82-second promotional video for the limited-edition Blu-ray Disc release of the Tailenders anime on Friday. The limited edition will feature a box illustration by co-creator mebae, a deluxe 64-page booklet, and a bonus DVD with cast interviews and "making-of" videos. The Japanese production Anime Innovation Tokyo (Dōgakakumei) 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!!
The anime will ship on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in Japan on January 28, 2011.
