Just as great as the anime, if not better

by -

As a fan of the series, and a fan of cars and Motorsports, I really like this. It's stage 1 of the anime, but redone in a film format that plays out to the advantage of the story, as it cuts out parts of the story that aren't as essential.

The Good:
-Good animation
-Good voice acting
-Revamps the old art style without losing it's identity
-Just a great remake of stage 1

The Bad:
-Eurobeat is replaced by rock
-Fanservice is a little much when your family is around (considering it's just about racing)
-All on one disc (I'd rather have three individual discs)

All in all, I really like it. I just wish Sentai would turn the other stages into music, but beggars can't be choosers. Would I recommend this to fans of cars and racing? Absolutely. What about to fans of the original series? Yes. Would I recommend this to fans of anime in general? I think so, as even if you aren't the biggest fan of cars and racing, you can still appreciate the voice work, writing, and animation.
