If you wanted a true racing anime about professional Moto racing then Futari Daka is perfect for you. It’s quite an old anime but definitely, one of the best racing anime ever made. Taka Sawatari and his mother were attacked by a motorcycle gang and were saved by a mysterious young man who happened to be a professional racer Taka Toujou. A great story about rivals and racing that is sure to entertain you.
7. Master Of Torque
One of the more recent anime that is not that well known but is still a great watch for those who love bike racing. It’s fun to watch with decent animation.
The story is a bit bland but the racing action is quite entertaining so I would still suggest watching it.
These were all the animes about bike racing. Only these any were made so we decided to list them all. The remaining are OVA’s which are short movie-type animes that are also great to watch. So let’s begin:
Bonus OVA Animes:
1) Circuit Angel: Ketsui no Starting Grid
Circuit angel is one of the few female riders based anime ever made. Mariko is a tough yet kind girl who loves riding motorcycles. She ends up in a race to settle things between the rich son of the bike maker and herself which shows off her true talents as a racer.
It’s an OVA so it’s quite short but a great watch.
2) Bakusou circuit roman twin
This is another great short ova anime based on circuit racing that I’m sure many of our readers will love. Despite being short it’s entertaining and I wish they had continued it but alas.
3) Bari bari dentetsu
This is an anime movie about 4 high school seniors, who race on the mountain roads at night. They dream of being professional racers and thus refine their motorcycle skills on the harsh road.
It’s a great movie for those who love bike riding.
4) Kaze wo nuke
This is one anime whose remake I wish to see. I mean the original was only a small OVA where a 16-year-old Satoshi Ichimonji fights his way from the novice grade up to Junior Cross championship in motocross racing.
It’s fun to watch anime with motocross racing. It’s quite the old anime so don’t expect great animation.
5) Kentaurous no densetsu
An old ova that only a few of the veteran bike racing anime fans have watched. It’s quite old and there are hardly any proper images for this anime.
Even I haven’t watched this anime since I couldn’t find it. If someone does let me know in the comment section below:
6) Aitsu to Lullaby: Suiyobi no Cinderella
One of the oldest bike racing ova with bike racing and romance combined. It’s one of the underrated ova’s that never made it big.
It’s a short and sweet racing and romance story of bikers and the thrill of riding a bike. A decent watch.
That’s all folks. These were the best bike racing animes and ova ever made. If we missed any great anime then do let us know in the comment section below.
Happy Anime Binge-Watching
