Initial D Movie - Coming Soon

I know most of you either liked the manga/anime series or you didnt. I read the manga's and they're pretty entertaining. I never bought into the whole craze and hype...but seeing Formula D on G4TechTV a few nights ago seems that the drifting craze is not over and is not dying any time soon.

So this is a Chinese attempt at a Japanese manga...there are two trailers on this link...

http://www.putfile.com/media.php?n=initialdtrailer

Hopefully the link works fine for everyone...

I wonder what the real Itsuki be like. Whether he'll be as funny or not is questionable.

And I wonder whether Mako and Sayuki are good looking in the real movie (or whether they weren't included)

The cars looks good-but i don't think it'll be released outside asia.

I stick to watching Project D for now.

I don't think a movie from Hong Kong is going to have a big effect in the US, unlike Fast and Furious the only advertisement so far has been on the web in car forums. Anyway Initial D has been out for over 6 years now so it's not like the new craze. Also it's not just Initial D that's promoting the AE86, Best Motoring has been doing loads of shows on it as well(Touge showdown, N2 races etc) and D1.

I think Initial D is the best car story I've seen in terms of racing, tech info and humour. Nothing else imo comes close.

I suppose you get less attention if your car was a coupe than a hatchback .

It looked pretty good, so I'm downloading the Initial D's, but I've never heard of it before.

Somehow I just think the movie is going to have to same plot as the 1st and 2nd stage. People who watched the anime or read the manga would probably know what will happen and it takes a bit of the fun away. But most people just want to see it for the real cars drifting on the touge.

A brief description of Initial D. An 18 year old boy called Takumi delivers Tofu every morning at 4am in his dad's AE86. Since he's been delivering since he was 13 he has amazing driving skills from it. It's a good storyline and you'll have to watch it.

I've found the first episode if you want to see it:
http://www.superhonda.com/video/init...tage1_eps1.avi (DIVX)

If you want more then I'd suggest Kazaalite or Bit torrent(then go to http://go2.id.net to obtain the torrent files)

Mazda...that is probably the only coupe I've EVER seen that looks decent...but it still needs like a spoiler or something...to break up the rear.
