Movie Reviews

Great Series! Great Collection!

"Now that Funimation has the rights to Initial D its even better! The DVDs contain both the original Japanese production (for the fans) and the English TokyoPop version (for those who dont want to read). Ive been a fan of the series for years now, and for those that are new to Initial D, I highly recommend picking this collection up. Plus its much cheaper that buying each single DVD, which would cost around $150.

I just hope Funimation continues to release all of the stages in collections like this..."
INITIAL D - A must have for anime or street racing lovers

"Let me start the review with the package. This box set is very well presented and includes a booklet with the characters and their respective cars, also this package includes a sticker with the FUJIWARA TOFU logo as a bonus.

This first season (of four) tells the story of TAKUMI FUJIWARA a dreamy high-school student and its introduction to STREET RACING. Takumi's friends don't know that he has drive the dangerous and complicated Mt. Akina for the last 5 years, delivering TOFU (the family business) for customers. One interesting thing is that he doesn't only drive in a legendary car .... his father secretly trains him to control the car like any other part of his body.

Some events lead Takumi to compete with a well know STREET RACING TEAM, called the RED SUNS and this is the beginning of a new world for Takumi. Something awoke inside him when he felt the rush to compete with a much higher powered car with a good driver inside.

Drama, love, comedy and too much action awaits you in this series that comes in 9 DVD and will give you many hours of fun. You will love the series for sure, even if the animation is a little bit different combining 3D CG with hand drawn animation.

You will be immediately drawn to INITIAL D universe in the end of the first DVD. Enjoy"

"Wow, I have not seen this one for more than ten years ago. Time sure flies. When I see this product in stores, I was a bit hesitating because I have seen the trailer in english dubbed and music changed. Once I have heard from friends who rented or owned it, they said the japanese versions were kept in tact. You know, they were right!. That made me happy. I tried to give english version a chance, but I cannot surpass the music, the new given names, and the new special effects during the race. It just not the same! Just to be fair, I will only review only the original japanese version. The picture and the sound are really clean for a first season TV series. The contents are kept intact. I do not recall any scenes have been edited out. I recommend who enjoys classic sport cars do battle and remind how good the cars in their time."
Initial D is the best auto-racing themed Anime series ever.

"I grew up watching Initial D and it is completely awesome. The characters are engaging and every episode will drop some useful knowledge about automobiles and racing technique. I highly recommend the Tricked Out version with hip hop and pop electronic soundtrack and some CGI animations. The original version is very nice as well and you can watch it with English sub-titles if you do not understand Japanese."
