Looks like Shigeno is working on another new work after having finished his first post-Initial D work after 2 volumes (Takane no Hana) back in Decemeber.

The new series is apparently about a fashionista who has an amazing right arm who joins a woman's baseball team. A pretty big departure from his previous works to be sure...

I wouldn't either if I wrote a declining series for over a decade.

Guess he got the itch for action again already. Shonen is in the man's blood, after all.

Main character ejected for illegal substance on arm. Unfair advantage. Series cancelled.

I wonder if he'll try to rip off Adachi Mitsuru, since he's also playing the romance angle with his other new series.

It's pretty simple to me....

A post touge / project d Manga.

Takumi and keiskes life and new challenges in the pro world and how all they learned from ryuske and the streets helps them in the pro world.

We need more Bunta and way more itsuki and all the speed star characters.

We need the side stories and the friendships.

There is your money and there is your next ten years

Thing is Shigeno clearly got tired and bored of Initial D many many years ago just before the final story arc focusing on Kanagawa (although some might argue he got bored and stopped caring long before that).

There is A LOT he could expand on if he really wanted to.

-A prequel featuring Bunta and Takumi's mother.

-Impact Blue and Iketani's relationship.

-Release Keisuke's races from the 4th stage and the what about the races that were never even included in the Anime.

Maybe slightly less work re-release the entire thing in HD lol

I feel like anyone could continue Initial D from this point. Considering stage 5 and final stage were weak apart from the first episode in stage 5 which i enjoyed a lot biggrin.gif

They could continue the series in so many ways but as always, everything that i love is never "popular"....instead we get endless episodes of Naruto >__<

Initial D is actually one of the most popular shonen manga in Japan.

His new series seems to be still going, I kind of wonder how sales are and whether it'll last longer than the other one he did.

Unremarkable sales and will last a long time in obscurity, are my guesses.

Wait for the inevitable post where I'm told that I don't know Japan and should shut up.

He's going through new manga like pairs of underwear. Third time's the charm?

It's almost like after two flops he gave up trying to do something original and figured going back to racing stories would do the trick.

Sounds like a dumb concept for a new manga anyway. "This guy is a pro racer coming back to a country where self-driving cars are the norm." WHAT IS THE POINT?

Well at least this time he can mess around with timelines and not worry about introducing cars that don't match up with the presumed date.

Shigeno finally realized that most of viewers wanted matchup of *such vs. such* cars. : )

The point is in this timeline the MC is a particularly rare breed. It's an interesting enough idea, I am curious to see how Shigeno builds around it. It could be trash, it could be cool. This will only be his third racing-oriented series.

Hopefully it turns out as good as the other two, although you could argue that at least one of his one shots (from before Initial D) was tangentially car-related.
