The Line Animation Honors The Classic Anime Fight

IZZO follows a masked hero as he fights several demons with his ultra-sharp sword on his way to the peak of a Japanese city.

He’s Fast, Agile, and Sharp; qualities that echo the key attributes of IZZO, the brand new trail bike released by YT Industries. Directed by Wesley Louis and Alvise Zennaro. Together they handpicked a small but elite pack of artists to make characters swoop, cut, and splatter across your screens like a Japanese ink brush.

Our intent was to honor the classic anime fight sequence but bring something new and unexpected to the table. The collaborative spirit of everyone at SHIFT Active Media and YT allowed us to create something really unique. With the combined effort of our in-house team, as well as friends from outside The Line, we managed to craft something that we’re immensely proud of.
