Just saw this posted on Funimation's YouTube channel, I guess it means they remember Initial D after all.

Heh, I wonder why they went and did it, I mean Rockstar as opposed to Funimation, seemed kind of random to me.

I dunno, a major auto company pimping the new Corolla iM drifting would probably want to connect with the younger crowd somehow... pair up with one of their teams and whoever has the license to Initial D.

Weird, well Rockstar still has it up:

I wonder why Rockstar picked the Corolla iM for their rally project, I'm guessing it's lightweight, but it's kind of small. I test drove one when it was the Scion iM and wasn't all that impressed.

The video was rather entertaining, though the [EUROBEAT INTENSIFIES] meme seemed totally crow-bar'd in there. But they do know their audience ...

Half of the kids on Twitter tweeting about Eurobeat are Red Bull crackheads. So they're probably just trying to take a swing at the competition. derp.gif

Also they could've just done it with an FR-S instead of that little econobox originally marketed at Vespa powered OL's ~ tongue.gif
