Storyline

In the year 2048, people are raving about a fighting race called "Immortal Grand Prix", or IGPX in short, which is faster and more exciting than any of the existing motor sports. The phenomenon is so big that an entire city was built for the racing industry where competitions take place on a huge track. In the "Immortal Grand Prix," two teams of three IG machines, high-tech humanoid mechs driven by humans, race at speeds greater than 400km/h. The teams make three laps of a 60 km course while intercepting the opponent as they vie for a first place finish. The best machine performance, the best pilots and the best teamwork are the only factors that can make them the winners. Written by Production I.G.

Trivia

This was originally pitched by Production I.G. Cartoon Network rejected it but was glad to use it as a replacement for Toonami's Total Immersion Event in September 2003. However, it was so well-received by viewers, and got high ratings to boot, that they decided to go back to Production I.G. to plan and create a full-fledged TV series. See more »

Nothing is original? I've been proved wrong
27 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

I love cartoons. Always have, always will. I watched IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix for the first time last night. Nothing is original? I've been proved wrong. This series is original. It's a cross between sports movies and BattleMech series. Set in 2049, just forty-four years from now, it's about a team of IGPX races led by Takashi. The team, Team Sutomi, is managed by the granddaughter of its founder. Think of IGPX as an ice hockey game where the players don't have sticks and skate inside mechs. The best in the league, the league MVP, is Cunningham. Cunningham does whatever he can to get his team to win. Even if it includes cheating. Team Sutomi's coming apart at the seams. The rivalry between Takashi and River is tearing it apart. Sutomi doesn't want to replace Takashi because he's the best forward the team has. River begs to differ and wants to replace him. What happens next? Find out next week.
