    This is possibly hearsay but quite a few reliable sources are quoting this

    Taken from ANS (Anime News Service)

    Wangan Midnight Anime To Debut Spring 2007
    Anime News Service:Based on the long running street racing manga series created by Michiharu Kusunoki, a decision has finally been made to adapt Wangan Midnight to animation. Look for the project to manifest in consumable form sometime next spring in Japan. The announcement came in last week's edition of Kodansha's Young Magazine where the manga has serialized since 1993. No details on the project were mentioned besides the the sole expression of intent to commence with the animation. 36 collected manga volumes now exist on the market. A number of related video games have been created in the past which have featured in-game anime sequences.

    Developer Genki is now working on a new PS3 version game for release in 2007. Additionally in 1994, 1997 and 2000 a series of live action Wangan Midnight movies were produced based on the manga storyline. Similar to Initial D, the hero, Akio, races a Japanese classic sportscar, the Fairlady Z (S30). Unlike Initial D's Touge hillside drift racing focus, Wangan Midnight concentrates on Shutoko "Expressway" racing along the actual long Wangan (Bayside) stretch of highway between Tokyo and Yokohama. Real street racing occurs along this stretch virtually every weekend and down the long straight a high horsepower and properly geared car capable of over 200mph is required to even begin to compete with top dogs.

    I Cannot WAIT :noes: :drool: hopefully this will also spur someone to finish scanlating the damn manga. :mad: Although I could problably learn to read japense by the time they're finished scanlating.....:hs:

    they had to make it a little ricey thats a given

    but at least he starts off kinda average and works his way up, even crashing a bunch of times. Way better then Initial Ds guy who wins by pure BS and never loses.

    I can host the mangas, but no ones subbed them yet. Only http://www.wangan-midnight.com/ are currently subbing them, and they've only done up to chapter 4. Don't hold your breath though, their releases are far and in between. You can also download the manga from there.
