Hi, i'm the guy that started the Initial D petition long ago (The_Shape aka Orin_Quon).

Just letting you know that the R1 DVD is still messed up. Read the review:

http://www.animeondvd.com/reviews2/alt_reviews/923.php

By the way, i wonder if Tokyocrap's also going to get the live-action Initial D and call them "Tak" and re-edit? Hahaha...

http://www.kungfucinema.com/news/2003-07-28-04.htm

"he also plans to make another 'effects' movie entitled Initial D. This will be an adaptation of a Japanese manga title of the same name."

Let them know how you feel (that is, if you still care):

well Tokyopop (aka tokyocrap,tokyochop) really did it now, when they said they were gonna leave an "original" version on the DVD, boy was that a bunch of BS, just by reading the review u can tell they the whole thing "has been FUBAR'd".

FUBAR, gotta love that acronym

booo-urns

'tricked out' version, what a heap of shit.

I can imagine the ricer exhaust noises they have used also.

God dammit, who makes these descisions! Who decides that a ricer exhaust sounds cooler than a real one, I would like to acutally meet the person who decided this, not JUST to kick him in the nuts, but to question his bizare reasoning!

if i were to learn about Initial D at the time T.P.(lol, TokyoPop/Toilet Paper) released the butchered manga and knew about the original, i would of found the original with the correct names etc much more interesting! and why ONLY Initial D??? Chobits and everything else TokyoPop has is still produced as the original and as it was made. why target a great one? why not go target some shitty one no one likes???? why the hell target any manga/anime at all???

Dude, i didn't even know there was sex and prostitution and stuff in Initial D because i was reading the TOKYOPOP mangas!

Man...this sux. Won't really be worth it to buy the japanese manga's since i can't read it...

BTW: i wanna get the DVD's off ebay from HK, do ppl own these? are they good quality? are the subs decent? I mean, sometimes they take the japanese, sub it into chinese, then use the chinese subs to sub into english, so it gets changed and confused. Are the subs understandable?

hey jlo Mein--

check out http://www.jackadeal.com for HIGH QUALITY dvds of Initial D - i thought i was getting jacked but i was pleasantly surprised about the hi-qual stuff i got from them...


btw - i realize that there's quite a bit of backlash against TokyoPoop's b@st@rdiz@tion of the characters and ID storyline in their release set for October. I've been a fan of Initial D for approximately 6 days (August 24). I literally just finished watching Stages 1, 2, Extra, and 3. I enjoyed every minute of it. I can say I'm addicted...

But my question is: How many of you who dislike TokyoPop's edits will refuse to watch the Americanize version of the show? Maybe i'll start a poll on that if no one has already...

Have fun... laugh.gif

Well, all I know is that she gets about $5000 to see "Papa", like a couple of times per month or something like that......


Tokyopop screws up again, what else is new.


One of these days, loyal ID fans should lead a revolution and riot against the TP offices. Burning TP mangas in sight. laugh.gif
