Storyline

Earth, 2082, twenty-five years after the failed invasion of the Crog forces. Young Eva (15) is determined to be reunited with her father, race manager Don Wei, who sent her off to a tough boarding school after the tragic death of the mother, ten years earlier. She escapes from school and secretly joins her dad's famous star-racer team under the alias "Molly". But Don Wei doesn't recognize his daughter. He has other troubles on his mind: the President of the Earth Coalition has just put him in charge of a dangerous top-secret mission. Don Wei must lead the Earth to victory in a mysterious and mythical intergalactic competition - The Great Race of Oban. It is said that the outcome of the competition will radically transform the balance of power within our Galaxy. Earth cannot afford to lose - especially not against the Crogs! Before she knows what is happening, "Molly" takes off for the planet Alwas, the first stage of The Great Race of Oban, with Don Wei, champion pilot Rick ... Written by STW Productions

Wow, that was great!
11 December 2013 | by jeanmichelcaupainSee all my reviews

As a fan of anime and sports car enthusiast I loved watching this on TV when it first came out. Unfortunately I never had the chance to watch the second half, so a few days back I decided to watch it after all.

The story was unique, the races and sceneries beautifully animated, definitely worth around the eight. But (don't think this is really a spoiler, but if it is, this reaction will probably be deleted) the final episodes were so great that I gave this show a 9. The last few years I have seen some great series, like "Elfen lied" and "Code Geass". I can't say "Oban Star-Racers" in its entirety is as good but the final might be from the same league.

Great series like "Code Geass" already have a lot of great reviews on the internet, "Oban Star-Racers" hasn't as much as it deserves. It was good enough to make me write my first review (I hate writing reviews).
