the movie disc is 6.67gb in total.
the 2nd disc has over 1 hour worth of bonus material footage. too much space to fill in.
that's over 11gb worth of data in total. the most you can put in is 8.5gb in a dual layer dvd. you do the math.

I've gone ahead and ordered the boxset. Even though I didn't like the film a lot i'm an Initial D nut w00t2.gif So I expect to be making my 500 piece jigsaw puzzle, while reading my Initial D encyclopedia and using the bookmarks well into the Xmas period grin2.gif

My parents were able to find it for me (by accident) here in Sydney, and picked it up for $100 aus

so no, i didn't order it online .. but after looking through everything, it looks pretty authentic .. the dvd is in perfect condition and presentation

Unfortunately no one, that speaks the language the film is made in, ever buys the REAL DVD.

Looks like an awesome bundle as a collector's item though.

Hopefully I'm able to find that Special Edition Kit you got there. I know I can't find the special edition DVD online at the moment, but I hope ebay will be stocking those soon enough. I haven't seen the movie myself, but I always wanted to. Quick question, does the movie play eurobeat music during racing scenes? Not that it matters, but I just wanna know.

NO it doesnt - it uses kinda rappish and funky beats instead

but i have found and am currently downloading a torrent of the movie that is apparently a "Eurobeat version" ~ search 'eurobeat' @ www.torrentspy.com

Initial D live action movie - eurobeat version

only 32% complete at the moment .. unsure on the quality (also of the subbing) so ill post back when its complete

you know what, let's sticky this thread!

You know, i dont know about any others but for me; my first viewing of the movie kinda soured it for me because i brought my own prejudices and limited my acceptance to the movie .. i.e. it not being authentic to the story and characters, the elimination of eurobeat music and j-pop, etc (plus the subs were horrendous too!)

but after getting my original copy and finally getting to see it in its entirity, it really it a great movie

sure its not for the hardcore initial d fan, but as a HK movie with entertainment value it's pretty damn good!

im just curious as to how the sequel will be played out ~ it may even be Project D already, since Ryosuke asked Takumi to join his new racing team and Takumi accepted whistling.gif

how is that strange? he's really saying that in cantonese (literally, it's "yeah....and i want to hit airplanes" ("hitting airplanes" or 'daa fei gay" is a cantonese slang meaning "to masturbate").

disregard the mandarin dub translations.

speaking of which, has anyone seen the drifting demo in shanghai? anyone notice the muffler fell off from the EVO3? lol!
