IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix (IGPX インモータル・グランプリ Ai Jī Pī Ekkusu Inmōtaru Guranpuri) is an anime series co-produced simultaneously by Cartoon Network and Production I.G. The opening theme is "Go for It!" by GRAN RODEO while the ending theme is "Believe Yourself" by Exige. The ending theme for Toonami is "Strings" by Tommy Guerrero. The series is loosely based on the microseries of the same name which came out a couple of years prior.

Synopsis

The series is set in 2049 and revolves around the Immortal Grand Prix, or IGPX, which is a mecha racing/battle circuit. The sport is so popular that an entire city has been built for the racing industry, where competitions take place on a huge 60-mile (97 km) track. In the IGPX, two teams of three mechs, high-tech fighting machines driven by humans, race at speeds greater than 350 mph (560 km/h). The IGPX also contains fighting elements; attacking the opposing team 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.


Dubbing History

The series' English dub was produced by Williams Street in Atlanta, Georgia and Bang Zoom! Entertainment in Burbank, California. Both studios collaborated on the English script and casting, Bang Zoom directed and recorded the actors, and Williams Street handled the final mixing for the dub. IGPX was the first original series on Toonami.

On November 21, 2014, anime distributor Discotek Media announced their license to the TV series and re-released both cuts (including Toonami cut and Production I.G cut) of the series on DVD on February 9, 2016.
