Initial D – Episode 044

We’re drifting into the final turn of our Drivers miniseries by talking about Sega’s most prolific driving game series, Initial D. So hop in our Trueno GT-APEX – just don’t bump the tofu – and settle in for a two plus hour exploration of this manga turned anime turned arcade.

Why does this mix of Japanese mountain racing and pop music Eurobeat work so well? How did Pastblaster and Mr. SNK go halfsies on IDAS? Can we count high enough to cover all the arcade games released in this series?

Enjoy some very specific talk about local landmarks, tailgating BMWs, dbags with drivers licenses, and the short history of the long running Fast & the Furious franchise.
