I was at the mall christmas shopping, and I stopped by Animagic on the way. I asked the guy about Initial D, and they had a whole bunch of it in stock. They had soundtracks, the DVD's, and the Manga books. One guy saw me looking at itm, and he pretty much gave me a crash course in the whole thing real quick. I wound up buying the entire first season, "Stage 1", a three CD set for 49.99, and I just fired it up. Its look good initially. I like the cars and I like the animation. I thin we have a winner. I'll keep you updated as Im only 5 minutes into it.
