Wow thats really interesting. GTO and Initial D are series that I like and I'm wondering will it be worth holding off from purchasing them until I see what FUNimation have to offer?

I'm really interested to see what they are going to do.

Well I've already got all of Initial D that's in English. So if these FUNimation ones... are they going to re-dub it? If they do, I hope they leave in the old score. The eurobeat was awesome.
