Yes this thread deserves all caps title.

If you haven't watched Initial D, go @#%^ing watch it. Both dub and sub are great. The eurobeat soundtracks are amazing for racing. I've rewatched the seasons 1-4 at least 5 times now.

Love that song. Never watched or played Initial D, but I had that song on my ipod somehow... maybe it was in a DDR or Stepmania version?

Friend of mine back in high school used to play the Initial D arcade version all the time. Had his own punch card which kept track of his records and cars and whatnot Smiley: lol

My friend was just at Otacon and apparently they had 2 Initial D arcade machines set up there. He gets back and wakes up to this, the bestest news ever.

To give a small breakdown on the anime:
Season 1: 26 Episodes
Season 2: 13 Episodes
Season 3: 1 Movie
Season 4: 24 Episodes

The animation early on shows it's age, and you can clearly tell that the cars are CG, but it doesn't look bad. The races are incredibly fun to watch, and the music just hooks you in. I can also safely say I didn't know sh*t about cars before this, nor did I think I would appreciate a racing animu. But not only did I love it, I learned a lot about cars lol. And of course I now want to get a manual when it comes time for me to buy my second car.

I want to link some of my favorite songs.. but there are way to many.

Doesn't look like my cup of tea, although I might give the new series a shot. Usually not very interested in cars and for some reason I can't get past the art style in older anime.

(Edited, highjacking the thread felt bad.)

I'd say at least try to watch half of season 1. I didn't know sh*t about cars, nor did I care about cars or racing, before watching Initial D lol. The art style grows on you over time. It's not bad when you remember that Season 1 aired in 1998.

Watching the new season probably won't make much sense without watching the previous seasons. It's all been a continuous flow that follows the manga so far and I don't expect s5 to be any different.

Until I finished the series, I used to watch Initial D during my workout routine. It always got me pumped up, especially the music. I'm assuming there's no info yet on whether it's a reboot or 5th stage?

I don't think it was specifically stated anywhere, but I'm certain it's going to be a fifth stage. More info is supposed to come out August 6th. (8/6, フフフ)

Never seen a single episode, no interest in ever remedying that since I'm simply not a car person, but the music has been in heavy rotation in my workout playlist for what feels like forever.
