Initial D: How It All Started

A few months ago we posted about the upcoming next chapter of the Initial D anime. The highly-anticipated full-length movie will take us back to the early days of the story when Takumi had no interest in cars or racing, but possessed an incredible talent for driving. With the release not far off now, a longer trailer has emerged and it gives us a better look at what we can expect to see this summer.

This brings back a ton of memories for me, as I’m sure it does for everyone who grew up watching the story of the world’s most famous tofu delivery driver.

Now hurry up, August 23rd!

Is it just me or did the voices change?

Can anyone suggest more Japanese live action movies like Initial D and Wangan Midnight?

Goosebumps!

I wonder if the movie will follow the manga time line or the anime time line.
To be honest the two are pretty similar so won't make much of a difference though.

Pumped up forever.

I bet all those parts are flashbacks, the last episode of the TV show said the final race would be in the movie.  Takumi races another disinterested AE86 driver.

11

PoopieDoopie  Dont forget Robo Geisha!!! or Machine Girl!!!  or any other movie by that studio....

NoLabelNo1  The subs for episode 1 and 2 haven't been release yet.  I believe the ID forums said they are predicted within the next month or so!

23

Oh my god! Incredible, feels like Season 1 with better drawing, can't wait for this!
Initial D is one of my favourite Anime Series

24

XTREMESP33D Unfortunately, they did.

25

i don't mind a remake with this graphic if they make it all the way from stage 1. I'd re watch it again.

This looks amazing, I love how they made the 3D car models look hand-drawn instead of having them stand out awkwardly like they used to!

Noah_Lines spMulcahy This was just released 2 days ago so it may be a while before we see subs.

31

Right off the bat I can tell you that the license plate number is different (original is 群馬 55 お 13-954) and the windshield wipers are on the wrong side (LHD). Not sure why they decided to change it. o_0

32

Now we have to wait for the English dub, and who knows when that's coming out.
