Editorial Reviews

Nobody drives like Takumi; his instincts, confidence, and downhill expertise make him seem unbeatable. Now that he’s joined the Project D racing crew, his reputation precedes him as the team travels the region, facing the competition on its own turf. Every challenger brings a unique style and each course holds its own dangers, but no matter the obstacle in Takumi’s headlights, he’ll do whatever it takes to put it in the rearview mirror. Because he knows when you’re born to race and driven to be the best, it’s not enough to be fast – Takumi won’t take his eyes off the road until he’s faster than everyone else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funimation NAILED IT!! April 21, 2013
Format:DVD
NOTE: The DVDs are encoded in 4:3 widescreen. Meaning? The video is Letterboxed AND Pillarboxed (black borders around the screen) This is the ONLY problem amid this 5-star review

---

Back in the mid-2000s, Initial D was already an established property that many anime fans and car enthusiasts loved (including myself). With that much popularity circulating, it was only a matter of time before the US localized it and presented it to America.

So... US anime/manga distributor Tokyopop licensed the distribution rights to the Initial D anime as well as the manga it was based on.

In their attempt at creating an experience that could appeal to a wider audience, Toykopop did things that are totally unacceptable in today's US anime market.

* Names were changed/altered
* The original true-to-life car sounds were replaced with generic sound effects
* The Super Eurobeat soundtrack (a trait the series had become known for) was removed in favor of generic rap/rock music
* The computer-generated race sequences were given added "special effects" (this was the most questionable edit they made and still baffles me)
* A simplified translation that lost almost ALL the racing technicality in the process

Tokyopop tried to justify these edits by including the original Japanese versions of the episodes in the discs they had. But... the fans had spoken. The localization treatment Tokyopop gave to Initial D was horrible.

As time passed... it seemed like the US would never see Initial D in proper English. That is until Tokyopop lost the rights in 2008 and Funimation picked it up.

By Zach
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love initial d and.this was such a good price I couldnt resist! The save edition is the way to go, it has the entire season together so you dont have to pay almost the same price per disc for part season packs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good price, great experience. March 28, 2014

The only thing bad about Initial D is the awkward blend between 2d and 3d scenes. Other than that, it is one of my favorite animes. It's one of the only animes I've watched that doesn't have people with blue/pink/green hair and everyone wears regular clothing. Lol. The music is really awesome too. Some of these songs will be stuck in your head for days. And you'll be dancing to them to boot.

By Jchetty

This is the Japanese audio with only the voices dubbed. Way better than the original release. Better yet, I payed about $50 for the entire series. These are priced so well, this is the second set I have bought.
