IGPX Immortal Grand Prix

Immortal Grand Prix

Immortal Grand Prix (IGPX) refers to two anime series co-produced simultaneously by Cartoon Network and Production I.G. The first is a "microseries" consisting of five 5-minute episodes. The second is a loosely-related 26-episode animated series.

Koichi Mashimo co-wrote, and directed the micro-animated the series, while Bee Train Animation and Production I.G animated it, and Bandai Entertainment acted as the North American distributor. The full length Anime series was handled by director and writer Hongo Mitsuru and was animated by Production I.G with Bee Train returning for in-between animation.

The series' production was managed by Williams Street in Atlanta, Georgia. Bang Zoom! Entertainment in Burbank, California produced the English dub for the series, as well as adapted the scripts alongside Williams Street.

An IGPX video game was released on September 12, 2006 for the Sony Playstation 2.

IGPX microseries

The Immortal Grand Prix is a tournament between teams of gun-wielding mechs. As Team Velshtein is injured, the random drawing chose Team Suzaku as the one to face Team Sledge Mamma, a trio of cybernetically-enhanced cyborgs and the lead pilot of Suzaku would be Takeshi Noa (Joshua Seth). At first, Team Suzaku did not have weapons because their mechanic U-Matsu (Kirk Thornton) forgot them. But then, Amy (Sandy Fox) delivers weapons from Velshtein and Team Suzaku has a hard time controlling them. Amy's cat co-pilot Luca (Kari Wahlgren) takes control and knocks Timmer (Steve Kramer) out of his mech. Liz (Kari Wahlgren), out of ammo, uses her Capoeira image training. She is eventually at the mercy of an opposing pilot and surrenders. The Sledge Mamma mechs shoot at Takeshi, but Amy jumps in to save him and is out of the game. After being kicked around by the Sledge Mamma mechs, Takeshi reveals his plan. That he has ninja skills and, with his ninjatō and shuriken, he knocks Dimmer (Michael McConnohie) and Yammer (Beau Billingslea) out of their mechs and wins.

IGPX TV series

The IGPX TV series made its hour-long premiere on Saturday, November 5, 2005, at 10:30PM. This series appears to revolve around an "Immortal Grand Prix", which is a mecha racing/battle circuit, whereas the Toonami "microseries" primarily revolved around tournament battles, with similar (yet still separate) thematic development. In the regular series, the year is 2049 and the Immortal Grand Prix has become the world’s most-popular sport. It’s so big that an entire city was built for the racing industry where competitions take place on a huge, 60-mile track. In the Immortal Grand Prix, two teams of three mechs, high-tech fighting machines driven by humans, race at speeds greater than 350 mph. While it has transformed from a battle event to a race in the intervening 2 years since the microseries, the Immortal Grand Prix retains ties to its fighting roots, as attacking the opposing team in order to disable their mechs (thus preventing them from winning the race) is not only legal, but also expected. Team Satomi, a crew of amateur pilots, has just won a minor-league championship, the IG-2, vaulting them into the sport’s highest level, the IG-1. Now, the untested rookies of Team Satomi must overcome impossible odds and beat the world’s most skilled and ruthless pilots in the planet’s biggest event, the Immortal Grand Prix. The series was Toonami's first and only original series. And by "only", that meant that Toonami had to shut down on September of 2008.

Rules of the IGPX

An IGPX race consists of two teams of three pilots: a forward (usually places first or second), a midfielder (usually places third or fourth), and a defender (usually places fifth or sixth). They compete on a 60-mile track, going at speeds upwards of 350 mph. The overall objective is to make it to the finish line and accumulate more points then the opponent. 1st place receives 15 points; 2nd receives 7 points; 3rd gets 5 points; 4th gets 3 points; 5th gets 2 points and 6th gets 1 point. No points are awarded to pilots who are unable to finish the race. Lap one is basically a setting up lap. Teams set up their positions on the track as well as troubleshoot any problems that the mechs might be having before the second lap. In the second lap, also known as the Battle Round, the teams now fight their way to the finish line. The pit machines, also known as the Running Skeletons, are only employed during this lap. Each skeleton is designed to be able to hold two people, one being the mechanic that fixes the mech, and has an open center that allows the mech to be held between the two cockpits while the parts for each mech are stored along the sides for quick and easy replacement. However, throughout the entire race, the Running Skeleton can only be called on once for each team. So each team has to strategically call on it for themselves before the other team does. You don't want to call it too early because you never know how much more of a beat down you'll get, and you don't want to call it too late because the other team might get it before you. It alone can play a key part in the race as to who the victor will be, mainly because if the repairs take too long, points can be lost. In the third lap, pilots are allowed to set their mechs into speed mode. Speed mode allows the mech to achieve maximum speed, and make a quick sprint to the finish line.

Team Satomi

Team Satomi is a crew of young rookies who have just won the minor league IG-2 Championship and are now entering the big leagues as an IG-1 team. This young and inexperienced group actually did achieve the impossible dream to go from complete obscurity to winning in the IG-1 not only once, but twice.
Position: Forward

Age: 15 years old
Gender: Male
Height: 169cm
Weight: 56kg
As Team Satomi's forward, Takeshi is a gifted pilot who frequently defeats Liz Ricarro when his talent gets to his head. Takeshi seems to take nothing seriously, but his determination is strong when racing and he is also a practitioner of kendo. He has an affinity for hot dogs and video games, particularly Watch World where his dog-like character is named Katana. Although Takeshi is a skilled pilot, he has an emotional breakdown from a blow to his ego. He, unlike his teammates, seems to have a normal family life, along with a younger sister named Yuri, who loves teasing her brother, and barging in on him without asking, though it is obvious that she loves her big brother dearly and she claims to be his biggest fan and supporter. Takeshi also looks to his idol, a famous IGPX pilot known as Rocket G, or simply "The Rocket", as a source of inspiration. The Rocket is later revealed to be Team Satomi's coach Andrei Rublev. Takeshi was an item with Fantine Valjean and met with her at times when playing Watch World, however, in season 2, they broke up. Fantine realized that Takeshi and Liz have feelings for each other and thought of Takeshi as a friendly rival rather than a boyfriend. He also matures throughout the series.

She is also an avid martial artist, always practicing her Kung Fu (Capoeira in the microseries) and quoting Confucius. Takeshi's contrasting attitude and antics on and off the track are always annoying her, but it is because she feels he's never being 'honest' with her about his feelings.
Position: Midfielder

Age: 14 years old
Gender: Female
Height: 166cm
Weight: 43kg
A child prodigy, Amy is Team Satomi's midfielder and battle tactician. She, being the physically weakest of the team, synchronizes with her cybernetically enhanced calico cat, (Vanilla Yamazaki, Kari Wahlgren), to form a composite personality during IGPX Races. Quiet and sympathetic, Amy will often patch up conflicts between other team members, but her sweetness belies her considerable combat abilities. In season 2, Amy is injured in Satomi's race against White Snow. Andrei replaces her for both Velshtein vs Satomi and Skylark vs. Satomi matches. Throughout the series only Amy could hear Luca's 'voice' while racing with him in her mech. However, at the end of the series, at the beginning of Satomi's first race of the 2051 racing season, it is revealed that now all members of Team Satomi can now hear his voice. In episode 4, "The Ghost", it is revealed that Amy dearly misses her parents, who are always out on business.

Michiru Satomi is the granddaughter of the chairman of Satomi Heavy Industries. Her family allows her to manage Team Satomi in the faint hope that she can turn this failing franchise into a success story. Satomi may be young, but she is a hard worker and knows she has a special team, including a one-in-a-million pilot like Takeshi.
Position: Coach / Substitute Pilot (Midfielder)
Nationality: Russian
Age: 45 years old
Gender: Male
The coach of Team Satomi. Andrei practices an almost "zen" coaching style, in which he appears to be doing very little and motivates the team primarily with cryptic comments and instructions. The other team members do not know about Andrei's past prior to his joining team Satomi, apparently as a result of Andrei's contracts with unknown persons, but a promise that Andrei makes to Takeshi suggests that he could have connections with or be Rocket G. It was recently revealed that he is actually the Rocket himself and used to race with Sir Hamgra of Team Velshtein. He substitutes for Amy after she is injured during Satomi's race against White Snow, and plays Midfielder during their matches against Velshtein and Skylark. Despite being way out of practice, he manages to hold his own during the races and even manages to surprise a few people. It is noted, however, that despite his pacifistic coaching style, he's not above using some 'questionable' tactics on the field; he intentionally spins out his mech and crashes into and destroys two of Velshtein's mechs during the speed round of their race to ensure that Satomi doesn't lose. Turns out that he had a daughter and wife but they had left him. Recently however, due to his more positive lifestyle gained from coaching Team Satomi, they have come back and are living together once more.Mark Ramsey

Mark may care more about his beautiful machines than the team's pilots.Jesse Martin
Position: Assistant
Age: 19 years old
Nationality: Japanese
Gender: Female
The peppy one, Jesse (in the Japanese version) is Miss Satomi's assistant. She's always the one to cheer up her fellow members of Team Satomi when they are depressed. Once, when Miss Satomi talked about dropping out of the race between Team Satomi and Team Velshtein after Amy got sent to the hospital in the White Snow race, Jesse was the one to convince her otherwise, inspiring Andrei to temporarily replace Amy as Midfielder.

Team Black Egg

The team from Argentina that has a very distinct racing style: They place emphasis on defense rather than offense, preferring agility, smokescreens, and similar tactics to avoid attacks and concentrate on racing. Since the IGPX is descended from a battle sport, this strategy completely bowls over most teams. They unfortunately placed sixth in Season 1. Finishing last place in Season 1 lead to their demotion to the IG-2. Their place in the IG-1 is filled by a team promoted from the IG-2, Team White Snow. Their mechs are equipped with hologram projectors and smokescreens, the likes of which scramble enemy opponents when their mechs are in the smoke.

Frank Bullit is the defender for Team Edgeraid. He likes to keep his opponents guessing and is sometimes off guard. He is always there for teamwork.

Team Skylark

The all-female team from France. Team Skylark's machines have all been designed to maximize drafting techniques. The Skylark mechs are more of the aggressive melee type where team members Elisa Doolittle and Jessica Darlin help protect team forward Fantine Valjean and use their special attack to take the lead after expending minimal energy for most of the race. Their mechs don't possess any kind of special weaponry or equipment except extremely fast-moving arms, so the pilots focus mainly on their combat prowess. Their drafting techniques may also be out of necessity for their mech's safe handling, since Fantine's mech overheated during their first match with Team Satomi after trading blows with Takeshi for an extended period. After losing to Satomi in Season 2, Skylark was demoted to the IG-2.
Position: Forward

Team Sledge Mamma

The team that frequently dominates the IGPX, Sledge Mamma is made up of Yamma, Timma, and Dimma, three legendary pilots who are 10-year veterans as well as notoriously ruthless fighters, plus former Satomi team member and rookie River Marque. The team despises the young upstarts of Team Satomi and will stop at nothing to put the rookies in their place on the field. Team Sledge Mamma apparently draws the line at cheating off the field, and once helped protect Team Satomi from an attack by overzealous Sledge Mamma fans. However, in Season 2, it is learned that it was Team Sledge Mamma who was behind Takeshi's machine error and the gang that fought them. Team Sledge Mamma's mechs are armed with detachable fists connected by strands, which allows them to attack enemy mechs from a distance. Except for the defense mech that has arms attached at the back of its elbow. the ends of which spin extremely fast thrashing at the opponent like a spinning punch. In the microseries, Sledge Mamma is cybernetically enhanced.

River is the new forward of Team Sledge Mamma and a rival to Takeshi. He used to be the back-up pilot for Team Satomi and was frustrated about being on the bench. River is an outspoken and pushy troublemaker and shows it when he pushed Takeshi into a security machine during a confrontation in the hangar, locking them in for the night. River was offered to replace Liz as defender at one time, but it was the forward position he wanted. He then decided to leave Team Satomi so that he could challenge Takeshi in a friendly rivalry rather than a hateful one.

Team Velshtein

The members of Team Velshtein were last year's IGPX champions, having upset Sledge Mamma last year in the IG-1 of 2048. Their coach is (George Nakata, Kim Strauss), who coaches in a military fashion and was also responsible for the Rocket's success. The Velshtein mechs are also specially designed to discharge a pulse that disrupts the air pressure and creates a high voltage tornado. This attack has been named the Indraga Mano or Ace up the Sleeve. In the commentary of Season 1 DVD, it is stated that the word "Indraga Mano" is just a made up word created by the writers. Essentially they had to make a crafty translation for the English version, hence "Ace up the Sleeve". In the second season, the move was made illegal by the IGPX League stating that it was starting to get unfair how richer teams were able to buy more expensive equipment than poorer teams such as Team Satomi. Their mechs are also capable of gliding short distances due to small wing-like extensions which are usually retracted. Aside from that, they are extremely skilled pilots, with mechs that have immense reserves of strength for conventional combat.

Team White Snow

This team replaces Team Black Egg in Season 2 after Black Egg finished in last place during the first season. They started in the same place as Team Satomi did in Season 1, coming up from the IG-2 to take a crack at becoming IG-1 champions. Their mechs have the ability to hack into enemy mechs and take total control of their systems, though this requires physical contact with the other mech and was banned by the IGPX League after it was used against Team Satomi. In their first match against Satomi, they score a resounding victory by taking control of the Satomi mechs and forcing them to attack each other. Amy's mech ends up being destroyed from the waist down by a kick from above by Takeshi controlled by Zanak. Amy is sent to the hospital, and is suspended from the next 2 races: Satomi vs Velshtein and Satomi vs Skylark. Team White Snow also has the tendency to sabotage or spy on Team Satomi by hacking into their computer systems thus memorizing all of Team Satomi's plays as shown in the last race. Team White Snow has also combined their mechs into "Snowman", a large behemoth designed to prevent the other team from passing them on the track. It also has many extended, spiked arms.

Trivia

  • Fantine Valjean's name is an allusion to the characters Fantine and Jean Valjean in the book Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. Likewise, Team Skylark member Elisa has the exact same name as the main character of Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw and as the leading lady in My Fair Lady.
  • Andrei Rublev bears the name of the Russian iconographer Andrei Rublev .
  • In the episode "Cat vs. Dog", there is a man who looks exactly like Gendo Ikari from Neon Genesis Evangelion. The man also sits with his hands crossed over his face, which was first done by Gendo and has been done in many other anime series. This character insertion was probably due to Production I.G working on both IGPX and the Evangelion movies.
  • The leader of Team Velshtein, Sir Hamgra, is an exact lookalike of Patrick Zala from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED.
  • In "Cat vs. Dog", the mecha of Team Edge Raid have GITS painted on their arms. This is a reference to Ghost in the Shell, a pair of feature-length films and a TV series animated by Production I.G, who also animated IGPX. Team Satomi's mechs have the word Absolute painted on their arms.
  • IGPX's episodes alternate between TV-Y7-FV and TV-PG. Originally, the TV-PG-rated episodes had no objectionable content, however, many fans believed that the reason for this higher rating was due to the band Wagon Christ appearing in the credits. In later episodes, the use of moderate profanity such as "hell" and "ass" (and on one occasion, "bitch") has contributed to the TV-PG-L rating, making IGPX the first Toonami exclusive, and the only show on the entire network (Adult Swim is considered a separate channel), to have that rating.
  • On July 8th, IGPX was moved from the Toonami block to the regular Cartoon Network schedule (Fridays at midnight), perhaps due to lower-than-expected ratings. Toonami advertised the show's move, unlike many of their other series such as .hack//Legend of the Twilight, Gundam SEED, YuYu Hakusho, and Megas XLR.
  • In the final episode of IGPX, Team Black Egg's symbol is shown on the TV located on one of the triple towers that surround the track, which only shows team emblems for IG-1. This suggests that Black Egg has regained their spot in IG-1, replacing Team Skylark after they are demoted to IG-2.

IGPX Promotions

  • A promotional DVD featuring Episode 1 ("Time to Shine"), the IGPX trailer, music, and a screensaver was distributed with Anime Insider v. 26 (November 2005).
  • The same was released with Nintendo Power v. 198 which was, however, the (December 2005) issue.
  • Special editions of the US DVD volume 1 release came with a puff pack artbox, a Team Satomi T-shirt, the first episode from the microseries and team stickers, one for each of the teams from season one.
