Initial D First Stage(Review) (No spoilers!)

This is one of the anime which every car-person knows about, because this is a really good anime.

This one has got small details about cars right, it also has an really good MC who is a really good driver. This anime was also which introduced many kids to the car culture. This anime did a really good job of portraying the drifting and racing scene in Japan at that time. It also includes real-life  locations which are used for races in the anime.            I also liked how the characters would give explanations for some techniques which they used or something about the car setup etc. This explanation really seems helpful.

Soundtrack:

I can’t confirm if Initial D was the reason why Eurobeat music got popular or not but i can say that it was the reason why i started listening to Eurobeat more. The soundtrack used are really fitting to the scenes when they are played. Some popular songs are “Deja vu” And ” Running in the 90’s”. Those soundtrack paired with racing and drifting really set the mood for the anime.

Synopsis

Takumi Fujiwara is an aloof, spacey high-schooler who does delivery runs in his dad’s Toyota AE86 in the dead of night. Despite working at a gas station and having friends who are car nuts, he doesn’t know a single thing about cars.

Takumi is introduced into the world of street racing and his natural talent draws attention from all across Gunma. Will Takumi face the challenges or back out from the call of the mountain passes? (Taken from Myanime list).

All in all this is a really good anime and everyone should give it a shot.

Angolmois: Genkō Kassen-ki Episode 1 Review

This anime is based on real historic events. I really find that interesting, cause this probably my first historic anime which has more focus on a war that had happened.

Let’s head to the review-

So this anime has quite the art-style suited for it’s historic look. It is quite a violent anime it is trying to depict the horror’s of war so that seems fitting.

So the story revolves around some people who were exiled for reasons unknown are forced to fight against the enemy. Our main protagonist is one of the person exiled, he was actually a general in a kingdom but did something which caused him to get exiled. I think that the other exiled members will also play a key role in the anime.

Now for the characters we have our main protagonist who is a pretty confident kind of person and is strong. He is the type of person who has been through wars,so he has experience with the horror’s of war,he is also a samurai. Then we have a princess and whole bunch of other people who were exiled but we are not properly introduced to them. The other exiled people actually look cool,they might also have some different perks.

This feels like the more serious type of anime and now i am really interested in this one. Now just gotta wait for the 2nd episode.
