While flipping through recommendations on Netflix I stumbled on something that really surprised me. Sit down and strap in because we are about to race for the ultimate prize.
This is an anime with a twist. It's not just Japanese... it's also French! Created by Savin Yeatman-Eiffel and first airing in 2006, this anime follows the story of a team of star racers from Earth (think podracers from Phantom Menace but much, much cooler... and they have guns too!) that have been invited to join the Great Race of Oban. The prize for winning the Great Race? Well, to find that out you'll just have to watch!
With lots of action and characters that really pull you into their personal struggles as they work together to win the race, this is an incredible series. When I first started it up I was a little skeptical but I found that it quickly drew me in and left me wanting to find out more of the story, not to mention the crazy Car Wars like action of the race itself. I definitely recommend checking this one out if you haven't already!
