Hi dear Initial D fans,

Personally, I didn't read the manga but watched the anime and loved it biggrin.gif
Because of this, I want to see, well not a continuation of the series but another version (different characters, cars, places, etc.) with the same mentality.
With posting my idea here, I just hope a fanatic might change the idea into reality or at least to have a great conversation over the topic.
I don't know whether this idea was posted before or not, so here it comes:

Initial D in German style smile.gif
We all know several classic & modern German cars that would be awesome to see in an epic downhill/uphill battle.
My only concern is whether they have some sort of touge racing habit like in Japan, so if anyone is an expert in the topic, please share your thoughts.

Seriously, this car resembles to the 86 so much smile.gif

And this alwys picture gives me the great feeling of Initial D ! biggrin.gif

Of course there are other cars as well, not just VW, but you know it better than I do (I'm just an enthusiastic fan smile.gif )

If you have any comments, ideas or thoughts related to this topic, please share with us wink2.gif

Initial D be with you smile.gif

I don't think there is a Touge racing scene in Germany, because only a few people know about that.
The only thing the know about is drift, mostly from the Movie "The Fast and the Furios - Tokyo Drift" or maybe from the Drift Challenge on the German Hockenheim raceway

And if you want to do "Touge Racing" like the Japanese do, you have life in south of Germany (Bavaria), because there are the only high mountains (the Alps) with Roads that resemble a "Touge"

And no, if there's a german car that resembles the AE86 it's not the VW Scirocco, it's the Opel Kadett C Coupe in the "Rallye" or the "GT/E" Version

Here are some random pics I found on the net:

And here's a video
Sorry, no drift, just a hillclimb race against the clock.

Thanks for your reply and correcting my mistakes.
You're right, that older Opel is more like the 86 smile.gif
As I've previously mentioned, I'm not an expert on the topic, just an enthusiast.
And the "race" in the video was rather a rally-like performance, still I had the "Initial D feeling", just awesome biggrin.gif
Thank you for sharing this special vid, great find wink2.gif
Even though, it was in Switzerland, I'm sure Germany has a few similar courses like the one I saw in this video, with some tight hairpins and great places for clashes.
They have the courses & cars needed for epic downhill/uphill battles, so I just can't wait to see an anime (or cartoon) based on this awesome.gif

If anyone found any mistakes in my post and want to correct them or just interested in this topic, please feel free to share your thoughts with us, thanks smile.gif
