It seems they're still using the same art style as the Legend movies, so possibly they will also still use rock style songs instead of eurobeat. Doesn't matter to me, still hyped either way biggrin.gif

Holy crap there is finally going to be an anime adaptation of this series?! Maybe this website will finally be alive again. I alos wonder if there will be some changes to the series like what happened in the animation adaptation of Initial D. for the better.

Go read the manga, come back here, and tell me why you think it's good and worth the production costs to animate. I read through it up to the current chapters, and I think this is a giant waste of time and money. It's not at all a hot seller, barely gets mentioned outside of its own official website, and the studio that helmed the last Initial D production doesn't seem to have learned anything from that venture if these teaser images are anything to go by.

Initial D sold on average 1.14 million copies per volume. MF Ghost sells 50 thousand. Optimism and faith in Shigeno is not going to spur him to write compelling literature after over a decade of creative burnout. Everything he could say about racing that could be spun into an interesting story arc has been said already. Did we not learn anything from the post-Purple Shadow arcs? Call me a buzzkill if it makes you feel better, but even if this had the best animation team working on it and the best soundtrack since Battle Stage, they have nothing compelling to work with in the source material. I wish it would succeed, but it has no spine to hold it up. It's a bad series. I have read it twice trying to find something I can spin into "well this might be a cool sequence", to no avail. The action is bland, the characters are soulless, and the plot is nonsensical.

"But hey it's more Initial D related content so that'll liven up the forum." No it won't. There has been very little excitement for MF Ghost shortly after people actually read it and saw it for what it is. This anime is a heartless cash grab riding on the nostalgia of an author that checked out many years ago. Anyone with a functioning brain should be able to see that. Kanata will eventually find his father, and it will be a Kodansha editor telling him the series is being mercilessly cancelled.

Rumours around Hirose are...

This means Sega might be working on an MFG arcade game.

Countach, Over Rev, GT-giRl, plenty of better manga out there.
Hell, even Kanojo no Carrera would be better, and that barely has a story or any memorable characters.

Some changes happened with the Initial D. T.V. show & in my opinion for the better. So it could happend to MF Ghost.

Animation looks like shit, but to be fair this is basically pre-pre-production.

With the current trends in the JDM scene and such, I propose:

Wangan MidNight anime remake. I think it could do rather well now.

C1 Runner has yet to be adapted and probably never will be, considering its lack of popularity. Kusunoki is currently publishing another racing series called Shutoko SPL that... isn't doing very well either.

Honestly Japanese cars in general have so much competition now a days and the younger generation has a much greater interest in pretty much everything except cars. It's the old farts 30+ that still have memories of the 90s machines dominating.

Hard to develop a story around the cars being amazing when right now they're honestly outclassed.
