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.

But... who the hell will he race against if nobody in Japan knows how to drive? It's a neat concept, albeit absurd.

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?

Wow, what an idea !

Has anyone of you heard of "ex-Driver" ?

Holy fuck I knew this idea sounded familiar. Shigeno's lost it.

It's going to be interesting to see how this pans out. I'm looking forward to Initial D fans pouting because it's about cars but not a sequel, no Takumi, no real cars, etc.

I've got a good one biggrin.gif :

It's the story of a boy called "Carrera w00t2.gif Makoto" (Carrera = Birth Name, Makoto = Given Name)
who comes to a club where people racing Modelcars on miniature Racetracks.

He tries hard and after a while he becomes No. 1 in the Club.
Than he competes with members of other Clubs in his Prefecture and sone he becomes No. 1 there.
Than he competes with members of other Clubs in whole Japan and becomes No. 1 in Japan.
After that he competes with members of Clubs in the whole World and becomes Worldchampion.

All through the Manga our Hero must face different Opponents with different Modelcars, bring his own potential and that of his Car in every Race to the Max and deal with problems with his girlfriend.

I would call the Manga "Slot Racer" thumbsup.gif

I don't know if a Manga (or Anime) like this already exists, but if not Shigeno-san (or anyone else) you're free to use my idea.
please.gif worship.gif

Sounds good. People, myself included, want him to just get back & start writing more stories about Takumi. That's his baby, so to speak, so he'll be forever linked with Shigeno like Goku is linked to Toriyama, granted on a much lesser scale.

I'm happy that he's drawing more stuff about cars tho' ~ hopefully he doesn't take it too Sci-Fi & start throwing in some iRobot kind of shiz ~ laugh.gif

If it gets animated that'll be a plus too ~ clover.gif

I know there is a steady stream of new DB projects, but has Toriyama gone back to the manga after he finished it to continue it? The only person I can think of who is linked to one particular series and gone back to it is the guy who did the Rurouni Kenshin manga, he's done a short series on it and is starting up a whole new manga in that series.

I think all he's been doing recently is the Jaco manga ~ unsure.gif

I thought the Kenshin author was still doing Busou Renkin ... oh thank Golly Lama in heaven he's moved back to Kenshin man! laugh.gif

That's a very interesting observation though ~ that very few manga artists return to their magnum opus. Even Rumiko Takahashi or Inoue from Slam Dunk never did that, aside from probably a couple of doujin style one-shots. ohmy.gif

Shigeno must've really banked it with Initial D to never return to it again & live the rest of his life sippin' on Margaritas in Okinawa writing niche manga ... laugh.gif

Why did not let other people draw Initial D (or Spinoff) Manga ?

For example look at Neon Genesis Evangelion
There are the following Manga available in english (I don't know if there's more in Japan):
"Neon Genesis Evangelion"
"Neon Genisis Evangelion - The Shinji Ikari Raising Project"
"Neon Genesis Evangelion - Campus Apocalypse"
"Neon Genesis Evangelion - The Shinji Ikari Detective Diary"
and new in May 2017
"Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Legend of Piko Piko Middle School Students"

It's always "Neon Genesis Evangelion" with the "Original Neon Gensis Evangelion Charakters" but in different situations and drawn by different people.

So why did not do the same with Initial D ?

Takehiko Inoue didn't return to "Slam Dunk" but at last her returned to Basketball with his Manga "Real"

Pretty awesome concept, one that I've been wondering about myself philosophically.

Please make the car an old beat up Toyota 86GT, lol.

Whaaaaat? The short stories about Shishio's past and how he met Yumi were GREAT. Now Watsuki is making MORE Rurouni Kenshin? Damn that's AWESOME

He made a recent short series in the Kenshin series prior to going back full throttle to focusing on Kenshin.

I just want to have Shigeno make a series in which its Japan vs. Europe. Would be a fun idea and better if animated like Initial D.

didn't he say in some interview that if he were to make a sequel to Initial D it would be based on Rally racing?

With that information, just go watch rally videos for Initial D fix : D

Very good to see Shigeno-sensei return to motoring manga!

Sailor Ace didn't seem to be that big hit since it wasn't showing in manga selling charts, but made it to 6 tankobons, much more than Amazing Hana's 2 and I was getting afraid it might be popular enough to continue for several next years. So, bring it on, MF Ghost! Here are hopes it won't be that sloooow paced like Initial D ending!

Also interesting is that Kusunoki-sensei is back at Monthly Young Jump (after Big Comic Spirits affair called Ginkai no Speed Star and collaboration manga project Kami-sama no Joker) with yet another Wangan Midnight sequel called Shutoko SPL -Silver Ash Speedster-, telling a story of 42 years old tuner rediscovering his passion for shutoko racing.

Does anyone know if there are any other car/motorbike manga than those nowasays? The only other one I know is Toppu GP just recently relased in west by Kodansha. Others like Capeta and Countach ended long time ago.

That would be really cool! grin2.gif

Or maybe this futuristic AE86 adapted to future regulations & competing Vs. self autonomous cars:
YOUTUBE ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ro42wsDc2sQ )


But knowing Shigeno and how popular is Initial D among car enthusiasts in Japan, I'm sure we'll see some nostalgic cameos happy.gif

Now, looking at this ad posted by Rain197:
user posted image

It may well be the silhouette of a Toyota GT86, and it says it'll take place in year 202X, too (remember the beginning of Initial D manga... 199X wink2.gif ) so the ZN6 could be 10+ years old by then derp.gif

It looks promising to me, to be honest I'm excited to see Shigeno coming back to a car background story.

Can't be the GT86 with those mirrors. The roof is also incorrect for a GT86 silhouette.

You realize they probably had whoever did the ad pick some generic car silhouette from stock photos to use.
