Watch Initial D
- 4 Seasons
Cars going at fast speeds, drifting in mountain roads and dealing with school, this are the things that go around Takumi Fujiwara. His life dream and goal is to be the fastest driver in the streets and after being convinced by friend and rivals he decides to join a local racing team and race against some of the fastest drivers in the city an soon the world. As the anime starts Takumi is a very inexperienced street racer and knows little about car mechanics but as each season, or as called in this series, stage ends, he learns more and more about features of cars and new driving techniques that will later allow him to win races against tougher opponents and like this become a much more mature street racer. The television series is based on the manga of the same title written and illustrated by Shuichi Shigeno. It was produced by Studio Comet and later by Pastel, it is licensed by FUNImation and it features 4 stages with each having its own development and all focusing around Takumi and how he progresses as a driver to extents never expected from him. The graphics are gorgeous and stylish and the soundtracks are phenomenal as they go to new extents to set the mood even before the scene starts rolling and like this causing a state of suspense in the viewers' mind and curiosity towards what is going to happen next. This truly is a television series for the entire audience as it doesn't contain many over perverted reactions from the characters and there is little to none fan service. The genders that compose this gorgeous and inspiring anime are comedy, action and suspense. This is a great anime for any fan specially if they like cars and is very unique in its perspective taking on a more realistic role of how life spins around aspiring racers.
