I mean seriously, there isn't a single thing like this out there and THAT IS A GOD DAMN SIN!

Next thing you're going to tell me, there is in fact something like this and I'll look it up and it'll be some moe car thing.

The racing scene in Japan probably just died a swift and lonely death just like most fads. That seems like the most likely explanation.

What the hell.....nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!


While Yowamushi Pedal is great, it's not about street racing xD.


Yeah, I figured that was the case, scene has pretty much dried up yet CR is still subbing those car vids on the Drama side of things, makes me wish we could get an anime.

I never watched Initial D, but I imagine that the racing was sort of like Yowamushi Pedal. After taking a whole season to finish a race, I just can't bring myself to keep up with the 2nd gen.

I do feel that you're correct to assume that any new racing anime would be moe-based.

Airing after Initial D, in a list of 'best racing anime' on MAL, I saw Goddamn, Capeta, and RideBack.

Hmm...still don't scratch that itch, doubt anything ever will. >_< Someone throw money at Japan and have them make something non moe based, hell I'd even settle for CG cars!

Don't steal fuel, kids. Not even to satisfy your burning thirst for speed.

The final stage for Initial D aired in 2014, not that long ago. Then they redid the first season in a set of 3 movies in 2014-16. So anything new would have still been competing against Initial D. I think the street racing fad hit it's peak quite awhile ago as well.
