*Spoilers* Initial D 4th Stage - Project D!

This is so cool!
Aired in Japan yesterday night on pay per view.
This is for episodes 1 and 2. Expect episodes 3 and 4 to air on June 19th.
The animation has been redone and looks much cleaner and much more colorful. Color contrast blends in well.
Also, the racing scenes are much nicer where they use cel-shading over the 3D animation making the cars blend into the anime better, but you can still see the intricacies of the car down to the littlest detail.
In episodes 1 and 2, you will see 3 new cars.
The intro and ending songs are both by Move.
Intro song is called "Dogfight" and the ending song is called "Blast My Desire" in case you want to go looking for it on the net.
Was kinda dissapointed with the little amount of Eurobeat soundtracks in these two eps.

Read down more if you want the spoilers, for those who like to know what's up or won't get a chance to watch fourth stage for a while.

EDIT: For those who have seen, please post your reactions. I loved it!



















***SPOILERS***
Follows the comic pretty well.
As you remember from the end of Third Stage, Takumi no longer works at the gas station and they are high school graduates.
Ryousuke has Project D underway.
Project D goes to race Seven Star Leaf on the uphill and downhill.
In case you don't know the chassis codes:
AE86T - Toyota Trueno (aka FR version of Corolla in USA)
FD3S - Mazda RX-7 (newer model)
GC8 - Subaru Impreza WRX STi Version VI
NA6CE - Mazda Roadster S (aka Miata in USA)
ER34 - Nissan R34 Skyline 25GT Single Turbo (the FR model)
EK9 - Honda Civic Type R (model after EG6 and before EP3)

The intro was cool. Has Takumi's AE86 driving around, then shows twin drift in Ryousuke and Keisuke's FC3S/FD3S, then to Itsuki practicing his drift in his AE85, then a quick cut scene between Takumi and Bunta racing in the AE86/GC8.
First battle is Fujiwara Takumi (AE86T) vs. Suetsugu Toru (NA6CE).
It was a standard battle with not much "tension" except for the end of the race in ep.2.
Toru tries to do what Takumi did and he falls in and the car flips.
No injuries.
The sizes of the gutters are different where if you go in too much, you'll fall in this time (not like the gutters on Akina).
Next battle is supposed to be Takahashi Keisuke (FD3S) vs. Kawai Atsuo (ER34), but the scene cuts out and we don't get to see the race.
Of course, Keisuke wins though.
Later on, you see a yellow EK9 racing on the mountain.
Ends with Daiki Ninomiya seen on the phone with Tachi Tomoyuki.

I got it from http://www.downloadanime.org/ and uses Bittorent.
It's a RAW encode (meaning there are no subtitles).
Hope you can speak Japanese, or just enjoy the racing!

For those of you who haven't seen it yet... here are some teasers of the intro movie I cut/pasted.
BTW... if you're wondering why Takumi has a black hood on his car and doesn't in the anime, you'll find out in later episodes or just read the comic.

Really? I was getting it at 70K/sec. Finished in about an hour.
Wow.. it looks like everyone is having that problem.
