As you are probably aware, the second movie in the Initial D Legend series will be coming out on 5.23. This time, the plot will focus on the NightKids arc from First Stage. We are excited to see the R32 vs AE86 re-animated in true HD format. There are a couple things we are pretty certain of (But not confirmed):

1.) There will be no Eurobeat BGM in Legend 2 (unfortunately)
2.) The movie is only 65 minutes long, similar to Legend 1.

The movie title for Legend 2 is 《闘走》"Dokusou", which literally translate to "Battle Run", but the actual meaning is simply "Racer". If you recall, this story plot was all about Takumi discovering the pride of a street racer. Takumi, at the time, still stuck with the mindset that one needs a reason to race. For him, driving was merely work and daily routine. As he explore the idea that driving can be fun and exciting, we see our protagonist slowly develop to become a true street racer.

Around the 19th minute of the episode, including the opening. To situate the moment, it's exactly when Keisuke and Ryosuke are watching and there is an oncoming car.

Re-watching Final Stage recently I felt like this song (Nuage - Crazy Little Love) deserves to be shared on the page. It has that right Initial D Eurobeat feel to it. Something about the rhythm just reminds me of Initial D without any context.

Which one is your favorite song from Initial D Final Stage?

ACT.1
» David Dima - Dancing On The Street

ACT.2
» Dave Rodgers feat. Futura - Magic Sunday
» J.Stark - The Jungle Is On Fire

ACT.3
» Igoda - Flash Light
» m.o.v.e - Strike On
» Dave Rodgers - 1 Fire

ACT.4
» Nuage - Crazy Little Love
» Joe Banana - Wild Boy Bad Love
» Ace - Adrenaline

You can download all of the songs here: http://idforums.net/index.php?showtopic=46883&view=findpost&p=1296895 :)

Some of the fans questioned what really is the point of remaking First Stage again in the form of a trilogy movie format. I am not trying to place the spotlight on them. It is a legitimate question.

They recast all voice actors, swap out all the Eurobeat music and those catchy BGM that helps builds suspense. They even took the time to changed the license plate on all the cars. Why go through all these troubles? It seems the Legend trilogy committee made it clear they want nothing to do with the original First Stage. Sure, the story line remains largely intact, but in a much more condense and quicker pace. As a trade off, they lost that magic touch that made the first few episodes of First Stage so addictive.

Of course, nothing is absolute. There are benefits as well. The music selection and the art style made the new movie cater to a much broader audience. And the most important of all, it doesn't require the viewers to have any prior knowledge of Initial D.

If you watch Legend 1 purely as a reboot in an alternate universe, then it isn't that bad. It is the same argument with the Live Action movie. Majority of the fans that hated the Live Action movie is because they viewed it and expected it to be canonical and follows the spirit of the original plot when in fact it is a reinterpretation from the director's point of view.

At the end of the day, the trilogy movie will no doubt keeps us talking about Initial D again. For some of us, it means we get to revisit the early days of Initial D again.

Are you ready to go back to the beginning?

What is a good car?

Inspired by this question, +TOYOTA sets out to explore the idea of what makes a car good. In this mini web series called 【TOYOTA NEXT ONE】, it talks about two best friends just like Takumi and Itsuki, discover the joy of driving together. It's about friendship, youth and first love.
What makes a good car? When it's filled with precious memories. Full of laughter and tears. That is youth. That is life.

Watch the web series here now: http://goo.gl/HJNCmo

When it comes to lifelike scaled car models, AUTOart has no competition. That's why their 1:18 scale Project D version AE86 has been such a hot item. (We made a post about it back in late 2013 - http://goo.gl/9yGAEu) So it was a no-brainer for AUTOart to release a "Legend 1" version of the AE86 model when the first part of the trilogy hit the theater last year.

Reddit user Chimuel has taken upon himself to take some very nice photos of this incredibly detailed and accurate scaled model of AE86. But being a hardcore Initial D fans, buying one is just not enough. He bought both the Project D version and the Legend 1 version. And what better way to display them both than to buying one of those 1:18 car lift? I have to say, it looks so beautiful.

Chimuel was kind enough to share with us where he got that car lift from. So if you are thinking of recreating this set up, be sure to check the links below. The current price for the Legend 1 version is $153.50 and $148.81 for the Project D. version on Amazon.

For those of you who are as poor as I am, hey at least we get nice pictures of AE86 to look at. If you already bought them, take some pictures and show them here in the comments below!

I am sure we all remember how Takumi beats Nakazato with his superhuman footwork and fearless move over the curb in First Stage episode 10. One has to wonder, is it really possible..?

One Initial D fan sets out to find out. He went to the exact corner where AE86 overtakes the R32 and actually took some measurements. According to him, the gutter is a lot wider than he thought. From the edge of the pavement to the actual curb is a 80 cm (32 inches) of 15° decline. The actual curb is 30 cm (12 inches) in height. He questioned whether or not such shallow dip can generate the centripetal force needed for Takumi's 86 to corner at such speed.

In reality, cornering at speed over 100km/h (62mph) at such tight hairpin is probably suicide. The saving grace is, this is going downhill. So the center of gravity is towards the front of the car, meaning the two front tires will have slightly higher traction than the two rear tires. Also, since 86 is relatively light compare to other cars, the inertia is easy on the 86's body. The tendency of the 86 flying out of the gutter due to centrifugal force is minimized.

But I digress. Takumi didn't beat Nakazato the same way he did Keisuke. No, Takumi actually drove over the curb, to basically get inside R32's blind spot. As we know, AE86 has a 20cm ride height clearance. In the manga and anime, they never show how exactly the 86 got over the curb. If you ever drive over a curb before, you know it isn't exactly easy on the car. Now imagine driving over a curb at speed in excess of 100km/h.

So this is where we draw the line between reality and fantasy. Bottom line, it is possible given the right suspension settings and skill level of the driver, but highly unlikely for just about everyone.

I am sure Bunta can pull that same move with no hands on the wheel. (laugh)

It really is possible to catch better grip on the curb, but don't think it won't put a lot of pressure on the body and suspension system. Do it a pair of times and something is gonna break, just like one of the episodes where the suspension broke and Takumi really won because his opponent had to puke!

Your dream has come true. They are bringing Blu-ray to Initial D Fifth Stage and Final Stage. They are calling this the "Initial D Premium Blu-ray BOX Pit3" which is slated for release on 2015/03/20. You can pre-order it now in the links below. But first, what's in it?

Good question, us fans have the right to know what is contained in this box that they are selling for 31,968 yen ($264.53) From the description, this box contains five Blu-ray discs and one music CD.

» Disc 1~3 is Initial D Fifth Stage (All 14 episodes)
» Disc 4 is Final Stage (All 4 episodes)
» Disc 5 is a digest version of First, Second, Third and Fourth Stage. (Think of it like battle stage clips in High Definition)

And finally, the music CD contains non-stop Eurobeat music used in Fifth and Final Stage. Also there are deluxe booklets on Initial D material; a very nice luxury-looking storage box for the discs.

But all these for over $260?! Isn't it a bit expensive? You are right. That's why avex is also throwing in a special 1/24 scale Fujiwara Tofu Shop version AE86 model with this Premium box.

This AE86 model is different than the 1/18 version from AUTOart (http://goo.gl/TUjsM9) This one is smaller but it's just as detailed as the 1/18 version. This one also seem to have the roll cage (!) which was installed in Fifth Stage. So think of this exclusive version as the most up-to-date scale model of the Initial D Fujiwara AE86.

Anyways, this is not for everyone due to the price tag. If you do decide to take the plunge and get this, take some nice pictures for those of us who can't afford it. (that includes me..)

Trailer for Initial D New Movie Legend 2 is out! This is the second part of the trilogy. Legend 2 "Battle Run" is set to release in selected theaters in Japan on May 23rd, 2015. No release date for Blu-ray yet. But if Legend 1's Blu-ray release date is anything to go by, then it's most likely 3 to 4 months after the theatrical release date.

As mentioned previously, story line for Legend 2 will be about AE86 vs R32 (Takumi vs Nakazato) from First Stage. It is roughly four to five episodes worth of plot. We don't yet know how long the runtime is. Again, if Legend 1 is of any indication, Legend 2 is most likely an hour long.

More updates on Legend 2 will follow in the days ahead. Stay tuned.

The official website for Initial D The Movie Legend 2 is up!! As most of you know, this is the second part of the trilogy. Titled 闘走 "Dokusou", it literally means Battle Run.

Because this is an re-adaptation, the storyline will closely follow First Stage when Nakazato challenges Takumi for a downhill battle. From the introduction text, it seems like we'll start right where Nakazato's GT-R R32 tailgates Ryousuke's FC and subsequently we'll get to see the 3-way battle 86 vs R32 vs FC re-animated in high definition. And then of course the spotlight will be on the dangerous Shingo and his EG-6, in a gumtape death match with Takumi.

For those of you who still haven't watch Legend 1, please follow this link: http://idforums.net/index.php?showtopic=46060 to watch the English subbed version of Legend 1. (Look for the flashing NEW icon)

The trailer of Legend 2 is not available yet, but you can start following the thread on our forums for the latest information on Legend 2 today: http://idforums.net/index.php?showtopic=47520

Annnd that didn't take too long, did it? The 720p HD raw for Legend 1 is available. Please visit this thread for more information: »»» http://idforums.net/index.php?showtopic=46060

One thing, if you want to watch it online, better do it quick because it won't stay up for long. And I have to say this again, this is RAW, meaning no English subtitles.

English fansubs will be released soon. Please check the forums for latest news on that. We will keep you posted in the upcoming days. Thank you for your patience.
