  1. TOKYOPOP doesn’t know anime and transform it into uglyness (change score, characters’ names, cut scenes, etc…). Pioneer at least keep the original score and characters’ names for their animes.

  3. This is one of the best anime if you are into racing and cars. I just want to say that it is drifting though not “drafting” as written below.

  4. I went out of my way to by the boxed set.

    The translation (several years study of the language), for its use of America slang is actually very good. There are several nuances that are missed, ( the Japonese never say a direct no, but rather look away and say “CHOTO”, – give me a second to think) that are missed, but there is no direct English translation.

    The Driving tech is right on. I was taught by my Uncle ( a pro driver) and he used the very same methode on me, water glass and all. You can learn a lot on HiPo driving from this Anime. One thing, you really do need to practice if you want to be able to drift! If you get to know how to do the stuff, you actually become a safer driver ( ! ), because you are forced to realise your limitations, and your cars.

  5. This series is so great and one of favorite BUT don’t trust the translation. Normal dialog is kinda OK but MAKE SURE shut it off when the battle starts. The translation is so completely screwed up whenever conversation or the line gets technical. It’s really a JOKE!! If you like or know or do this kind of high speed cornering rather than drag racing, you will know what’s going on by just watching. They show you enough images to help you understand. Use your imagination but not your ears if you can’t understand original Japanese. That’s how bad translation is. One of the great thing about this series is that they stay as realistic as possible (at least somewhat). The writer does same kind of thing and famous racing driver is helping to create the show. The translation spoiled all those sweet things if you trust it. Having mentioned that, if you still want it, it will worth buying but otherwise forget it.
