Takumi rocks! He wins a lot and I envy him on how he drives. He wins even when everybody or his enemy thinks that his an underdog or some kind. Trueno really something! Have you watched this or have you played its game on arcades? How do you find this fast paced anime series?

I have watched the Initial D where Jay Chou played as the lead character. I really liked the movie. It was more realistic than Fast and the Furious. Plus Jay Chou is just so cute.

Well, it gave me an idea how good movie it was. I will try to find a copy of that soon. With that kind of reaction, I think this is really a good movie. I havent seen the movie because some people discouraged me not to watch it.

my husband loves it. i'm not caught onto the newer episodes. basiclly once he graduated high school, i kinda lost the storyline. but my husband just ordered 4th stage and it should be here soon. i know that he did lose ONCE, but it was to his father, and he didn't even know it was his father anyway. i saw part of the live action movie and didn't think much of it. they screwed up a lot of characters and mixed everything up. if you like Initial D, you might like Prince of Tennis too. for some reason, i find them pretty similar.

Its hard for me to watch the prince of tennis at the moment because they air it while on my working hours. I guess I'll just have to find myself a dvd copy of that anime series, its really hard to find women who loves to watch anime. They think that its childish watching anime, I have an officemate (a girl) who is really fascinated by the Prince of Tennis and that gave me something to look forward to. I tried watching the series and I find it very interesting but when we change shifts, Im unable to watch it. Im just starting to like that anime series, too bad for me Im unable to watch it for three months.

well if you live the in US watching it on cartoon network will screw you up big time because for some reason they're skipping over episodes. so i pre ordered the english version 1st box set which is episodes 1-19. but if you order from japan you can get episodes from 1-almost current there. i think those go for like $80 or so. try places like www.nextdayanime.com they sometimes have some good prices. animes like initial d and prince of tennis are real different from the fantasy ones i normally like watching. i think anime is for everyone, children and adults. i didn't start watching it till i was 19 or so. had a bad experience with Sailor Moon as a child that turned me off of it. but my husband grew up watching anime, actually, he watched the japanese ones and thats how he learned to read a little becase he needed to read the subtitles.

i do watch all of the series of initial d from 1st stage to 4th stage and even the special stage where the girls on sileighty are the main characters and i even watch the initial d movie which made a lot of initial d fanatics confused because of its different storyline. but it was really nice to watch that even my feet are moving while watching it LOL! it's too good to see how takumi beats those high end cars with his dad's one night suspension settings hahaha! Actually by watching it, I want to have that AE86 with the same setting and engines. Hope i got to have one by earning in MyLot LOL!

Takumi is really good, imagine that he was driving since he was young by delivering tofu. That have enhanced his driving skills, he only realized that he loves driving when he got the good feeling of winning races. If you want to earn big in myLot you have to spend more time responding to discussions, post lots of comments. The best way is to create a very interesting discussion where people would respond to it. Thanks for the comment.
