Initial D Fans Here?

Are there any Initial D fans in here? Just wondering cuz that is my favorite anime of all times. They better be making a 5th stage or something cuz Im not happy with the ending in the 4th stage.

Go to www.youtube.com

Search for Initial D 1st Stage Act 1 Part 1 (or click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sf0vi9FDUx0) and watch it.

Initial D was exactly what I needed to see when everyone else was raving about Fast and Furious, it's a great story and the racing scenes aren't the monotonous ones you see in every other racing movie.

And there's nothing wrong with wanting a car that looks like Takumi's

If it wasn't for Initial D, I wouldn't have gotten into cars the way I am now. I wouldn't have bothered going to Club4ag to see what the car was like in the real world and why it is highly regarded by most Japanese professional drivers.

Likewise, it's natural to want something you like. One of members at Club4ag has a replica of the Tofu delivery car. I personally love to have an FC3S that looks like Ryosuke. Just because it's a cartoon doesn't mean you can't be inspired by the designs.

Initial D is a cartoon but it pays a lot of attention to detail in the racing scenes, other films that are based on cars/racing wouldn't bother going into those details. That's what makes Initial D so special.
