| Urgh why no Eurobeat or be connected to the original story at all?!!! D:
They had the friggin damn time to change the whole animation into a reboot but they didn't even bother sticking back the original Eurobeat songs and the original story? Seriously man this made me blood boil. This movie could've had the potential of being better then the original anime. This is if they have given this any thought at all.

I watched the first episode of the anime and didn't like it because of the atrocious art as well as the confusing storyline but I was so damn grateful for the music man! Initial D has the best soundtrack outta all the animes that have good soundtracks. I so wanted to see the series progressing better but instead was also a serious flop too!!!

I am just so disappointed man, I know this review is stupid like many of my other reviews but I just thought this anime would be remembered better for its music as well as the hype of car racing...
