    Default Initial D

    Bari Bari was the precursor to Initial D, however the Initial D fandom in incredibly strong. Those cats have mapped out the series, and published it. Have any of you ridden the Initial D routes?

    Best to enter a corner slow and exit fast, than enter fast and exit Dead.

    Initial D was a ground breaking anime that pioneered 3D animation with physics based movement. The story setup was based around car drifting in the mountains of Japan. Written by the same guy (Shuichi Shigeno) that did Bari Bari Densetsu, a motorcycle anime. Most of the plot lines were written around a race on actual mountain roads. The Otaku fans have mapped them out, and should be a total hoot to go ride on a moto. ;)

    Thanks, that explains everything now, the video didn't play on my phone, but mine is set in for another country, so that might be why, yes the roads look interesting, car drifting in one of the motorsports that hadn't grabbed me.

    Many of these roads are outrageously popular, choked with traffic, patrolled heavily, and in some cases have been ruined by anti-drift speed bumps that make riding less than enjoyable. Use street view to scout the route.

    That's a shame. I still plan to go ride at least some of them. Since I don't ride fast (anymore) I should be okay. They don't put the speed bumps in the corners do they?
