Welcome fans to the Initial D forum!

With Madman's upcoming release of Initial D and the wealth of different Initial D releated merchandise and media it's only fitting that a franchise so popular around the world gets its own forum with the lead up to the release.

Talk about anything and everything Initial D in here including:

*Anime :1st, Extra, 2nd, 3rd and even the rumored 4th Stage anime and movies.

*Manga : spanning numerous amounts of volumes and extending far beyond the storyline of the anime)

*Games : The extremely fun and highly addictive Initial D Arcade games set a new trend in Arcade gaming with the introduction of a card system, this has also lead to so far 3 versions of the arcade stage game and a Special Stage made exclusively for the PlayStation 2, not forgetting of course the other not so famous Initial D games for the other systems.

*CCG : Collectable card game that is about to be launched.

*The cars : we all love it so car discussion is more than welcome in here, can the Hachi Roku really beat an FD 3S in real life? Discuss away!


Mods appointed to this forum will be myself, Kardith and InGram.

You forgot...

Music!

As with the other series-specific forums, specific Initial D music discussion can be had in here.

Generalised Eurobeat discussion is best kept in the JPop/Anime music forum.

It will be up to the mods of this forum to determine when that line gets crossed.

Oh and...

First Post!

Is general, non-initial D related car discussion welcome here, or should we keep that in the madhouse?

I would say put it here, so at least we can clear up the Madhouse some and kick this forum a little. Wink

I'd say cars related to the anime can be discussed here here, while the others can go into that car thread in the Madhouse. I think it's still alive in that forum somewhere.

Well, I backed out of buying Initial D, but I hope it's popular enough, and has enough exposure, for one of my Video stores to buy it so it's rentable. I guess I can only wish. Sad

Firstly, I'd like to say whoever wrote the "Initial Rap" (Poke-rap, anyone) that is on the preview trailer, well nice things shouldnt happen to them. Razz

Secondly, spelling mistake


Shouldnt it be "Drive, Dream and Drift, discuss all things Initial D in here including the anime, games, upcoming movie and of course the manga."

I changed the order to make it more accurately reflect the Initial-Rap

Sorry, I forgot to clarify my last post, there is a spelling mistake, shouldnt it be "discuss" not "dicuss"?

Well Initial D wasn't on my list of dvds to buy but now I can't help myself! I have a question and sorry if its been answered before - I must have missed it. I noticed there is no mention of a box with volume 1. I know pretty much every series gets a box eventually but the majority have the option of purchasing it with the first disc. Any particular reason its not the case here?

Um.

...

Sorry, was laughing too hard Razz. It's called a Collectable Card Game for a reason Razz You both collect it and play games with it ^^. It seems a bit dumb from the video off the initial D dvd, even though I normally dig CCGs... you have your car, a course, some parts, and cards that indicate variables in the driving... ie loss of traction, a drift etc... if I ever see a pack I might buy it just for the novelty Wink

doubleyou tee eff mate?

Also... mountain drifting is quite real... it's a common event in Japan. Watch any Japanese import dvd for footage, it looks hella awesome. The only thing not real about Initial D is an 86 beating a GTR. Razz
