It's All About The Story

  • Sep 3, 2006
Initial D has a very catchy story line, one that will hook you and never let you go. I understand why this animation would tick people off though cause it looks like it's from the 80's. Plus the not so great shift to computer graphics when it's time for them to get the street racing going is almost intolerable because of it's unrealistic look. It takes little time to spark a story with an idiot that doesn't truly know how good he is at diving. Tak is the idiot I was talking about and he is probably the most clueless person in the series but also the most riveting and action packed. His dad's car is what he calls a dump but other's call it an almost unbeatable drift car. I'm not that into drift racing but Initial D surely clues you in on it and Japans addiction to it. After a while your so into the episodes you pay little attention to those animation mess up's and it may become one of your favorite series.
