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.

エイベックス・グループ(avex group)has released the blu-ray version of 新劇場版「頭文字D」Legend 1 覚醒 (New Initial D Movie Legend 1: Awakening) yesterday (2014.12.26) for ¥ 5,434 ($45 USD)

There are two editions of this blu-ray release. A limited first press edition and the regular edition. The regular edition doesn't have all the extra bonus goodies that comes with the limited edition. So make sure you get the limit version if it's still available at the time of your purchase!

The Limited Edition includes two mini script books (prequel and sequel), a Takumi Fujiwara driver license and a deluxe booklet. The driver license is a nice touch from the publisher. Basically, it's a "mock" or a replica of a real driver license in Japan. Though, no real information is filled out which takes away from the realism.

The blu-ray disc also includes behind the scene footage, and some clips of special event, promotional video, commercials are also included. The region code is worldwide. However, as previously mentioned, there is NO English subtitles. Be sure to check out additional images below.

We hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday!

Do you remember this scene from Initial D First Stage? It's right after the S14 downhill rain battle. Natsuki went to see Takumi at his work. Like the good friends they are, the gas station gang had to take a peep at Takumi's girlfriend. But of course, they weren't being discreetly enough.

Did you notice the price on that sign the manager is holding? Yes, those price were indeed actual price at that time in Japan. Don't believe me? Check this out. The second item from the top is ハイオク (High-Octane gasoline) for 94 yen per liter. The third item from the top is 軽油 (Diesel) for 63 yen per liter. Cross reference this to the historical pump price for gasoline here: http://goo.gl/w7Tp5o You'll notice the average gasoline price was around $1.02 to $1.25 per liter in Japan from the year 1995 to 1998.

Then you have to take the exchange rate into consideration. US dollars to Japanese Yen was exchanging at 1 to 105 around 1995. So 94 yen was actually slightly cheaper than the average at that time in Japan. Considering they are in the Gunma Prefecture, it makes sense because gasoline price is generally more expensive in the big cities. Add on the fact that those prices were for カード会員 "Cardmember", it makes sense to be slightly cheaper than average.

There were many things that made First Stage a timeless classic. Subtle things like this contribute to the realistic aspect of the show. It makes you appreciate the show a little more. Though, it also shows its age. (coming to 20 years next year!)

Reader 少年A submitted this sketch that he drew a few days ago. We thought the style was very unique. It's sort of what I would expect to see in a spin-off. The artist runs a blog that feature his sketches on a weekly basis. He recently started reading Initial D and love what he sees. So he decided to dedicate this week's drawing to Initial D. It's pretty neat.

Do you like drawing? Show us your work and we might feature it on our page!

| Editor's Note |
The Initial D hype has decreased considerably in the recent weeks. The new movie brought a lot of hype in the scene in a short time, but it went away just as quickly. The Blu-ray for the first part of the trilogy is slated for release on the day after Christmas (2014.12.26) We will cover that in the next post.

And the last hours of 2014 are slowly ticking away. It's been a pretty great year in the world of Initial D. We had the release of Final Stage that at last wraps up the original story. Then we were introduced to the first part of the trilogy to the New Initial D The Movie. Though, most of us still haven't seen the latter due to the fact that it was a theatrical release.

But fear not, the Blu-ray version of it was just released in Japan few days ago. It shouldn't be long before us overseas fans get to watch it. Central Anime Fansubs has already confirmed they will be translating the new movie Legend 1: Awakening. In fact, there is a 7-minute-long leak (http://goo.gl/uEgeaq) of the new movie from a few months ago. Though, the quality is horrendous.So wait for the quality stuff, guys!

2015 will mark the 20th anniversary of Initial D. Yes, Initial D will be officially 20 years old. There will be many events celebrating this for sure. The second part of the trilogy will also be released in May 2015. We will continue to bring you latest Initial D news going forward.

We would like wish everyone a great start in the year 2015 !!
HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

Season's Greetings and Best Wishes for a Happy New Year from Initial D World!!


| Editor's Note |
Initial D New Movie Legend 1: Awakening will be released on Blu-ray the day after Christmas. We have not heard any fansub group that will be translating it yet. However, as many people who already went to watch the movie pointed out, besides the change of voice actors, the dialog is identical to First Stage. Die-hard Initial D fans probably wouldn't even need subtitles for this movie. Expect the raws to come out a few days after Christmas. We'll keep you posted. Merry Christmas, everyone!!

This is probably the most interesting Initial D merchandise we came across. That's right, the package reads 頭文字Dプリントクッキー "Initial D Print Cookies" Wait.. what?!

The package contains 12 of these cookies, with each one having a different label that you can supposedly collect. It also includes a PROJECT.D sticker in the packaging. Currently selling for 2,160 Yen ($18.70), the Initial D set version also comes with these fold-up paper models (86, Sil-80 or FD) I guess the idea is you can eat while making paper craft AE86. That's brilliant.

So what's the weirdest Initial D merchandise you've seen? Speaking of merchandise, Initial D New Movie Trilogy One: Awakening is coming out on Blu-ray on December 26th, 2014. Check out the links below to pre-order it today! (No English subtitles.)
