A Speed Racer Respect thread. Just post your favorite Speed moments or the most badass. Or sometimes when he did cool tricks or whatever the fuck. He was my first anime and i watched it religiously as a child. Do me a favor here.
>that scene early in the series when trixie thinks speed is in a burning building and lets out a blood curdling scream.
I was rewatching that episode and I forgot how horrifying it sounded.
