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 »

About time too!!
20 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

I have just seen IGPX for the first time,(on the Cartoon Network in USA) and have to admit to being blown away.

I was a big fan of Battle Of The Planets in my childhood days and loved Akira, mainly for the motorbike scenes, (the rest just baffled me frankly) when it first appeared in the UK. Sadly since then I had been put off by increasingly violent or turgid Japanese cartoons and what with the rise of Pokemon, Hentai and everything including the pseudo spiritual soul searching Ninja kitchen sink, I'd lost hope in finding anything of genuine 'fun' entertainment coming out of Japan..............

So finally a cartoon that simply has enough plot without brooding, action, realised characters and a soundtrack to die for!
