The anime is much much better. Although the manga is quite ok too. I think that you can't see as much of the characters stress during the battles (not that there's that much of stress)

Manga, as usual, is faster than anime, but its more fun to watch a race than read it.
Battle doesn't need a purpose.
The battle is its own purpose.
You don't ask why a field burns or a plague spreads.
Don't ask why I fight.

I do hope you aren't reading the US release of the manga by TokyoPop, that translation is a travesty and an insult to everything that is good and right about Initial D.  If you actually like that version, then I would suggest you go hang yourself right now and save us the trouble.  Note, I am being facetious here.   ;D
I scoff at your pathetic signatures!

I was thinking the same thing. Lol I read one and really it was awful. By the way Jaisbane it's the same with the Initial D's english anime version. The voices are awful and it's really shameful.

 ;D Okay I am gonna go and hang myself now. Yes unfortunately I am reading the english version BAH!! Thats the best I can do. My older bro bought me the books outta the goodness of his heart so its not my fault anyway  ;D. But yeah. I read the 3 I got and I agree that I would prefer to watch the actual episodes because reading about the battles just doesn't feel right. I need to actually watch the battles.

I finally realized who that guy is in Judau's sig. It is Bunta.

Well I have seen commercials and such for Initial D before but it never really interest me til now cause I wasn't really into cars. I formed this stereotype that if you know nothing about cars Initial D isn't for you.

That isn't actually true. There are a lot of tips and introductions to cars specs and modifications. There are a lot you can learn from Initial D's series.

Yeah I realized that when I first started reading it. Like the eight six, the FD and FS such things. I had no idea what those were. Then they tlaked about em which got me intrigued even more. I love this series so far. I want more books of ID.
