What the fuck man?
Legend 3 is coming out soon. How popular are those movies? All I know is >no eurobeat
>you will never live in 90s Japan and race down tooj in a shitbox
Track days are too expensive, North American street racing is just in straight lines with roads full of cops, and /o/ meetups aren't fast enough. Fuck.
>not traveling to mexico where you can illegally street race every fucking tuesday-thursday and saturday night near city airports
and there's always some random fuckhead crashing and totalling his car or running the flag girls over
I've been watching it over the last couple weeks. First Stage is a little slow (with bad CGI) but still worth watching, even if Itsuki is fucking annoying. A few episodes into Second Stage and I'm liking it more.
Consquently I've started maining /o/ and watching Top Gear a lot too, and now I want to import pic related since that's legal in Canada now.
Watch the first 5 episodes. If you're not into it after the first race, you can just stop.
Considering you like the music, you should have enough fun though.
It's pretty good if you even have a passing interest in good music, Japanese stuff, cars and nostalgic shit (especially early on since it's an anime made in, and taking place in the 90's). The CGI is pretty fucking bad though at first, but I mean, you can't expect much from a 1998 anime. It gets better through each season. Also note that season 3 is a movie, like, the movie counts as a season and it is solidly in the timeline and canon and needs to be watched.
On a final note, season 5 has a massive slump in the middle, but stick with it. The beginning and end of that season are pretty good, well worth the borefest in the middle. If you're not hype as fuck at the start and end of that season, you aren't human.
