Thumbs up Initial D - Cartoon series dedicated to Japanese Street Racing -- Now in India!!

Guys, the world famous Japanese Cartoon Series based on Japanese Street Racing is now aired in India on Animax Channel at 7.30 pm from Monday to Friday........

A brief description of the cartoon sourced from www.orkut.com
Quote:
The anime and manga focus on the world of illegal Japanese street racing, where all the action is concentrated in the mountain passes and never in cities nor urban areas, and the drift racing style is emphasized in particular. Keiichi Tsuchiya helps with editorial supervision. The story is centered around the Japanese prefecture of Gunma, more specifically on several mountains in the prefecture and in and their surrounding cities and towns. Although some of the names of the locations the characters race in have been fictionalized all of the locations in the series are based on actual locations in Gunma Prefecture.
It's quite an old cartoon series with four seasons viz. 1st stage, 2nd stage, 3rd stage, 4th stage.

Some of the cars featured are....

Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 4,5,6
Toyota Corolla
Nissan Skyline R-32, R-33
Honda Civic
Mazda RX-7

and many more Jap cars.......

Take a look at these videos ..... the animation is great !
