initial D forth stage so far has been awesome...prior to that review above...the 3d animation is so clean in this stage...instead of ultra realistic cars...the animators have now gone with cel shading rendering (cel shading makes the 3d object look like a cartoon) i think it blends perfectly with the rest of the hand drawn animation...i like how each season cleans up the hand drawn animation...but this season looks exceptional...the story line is quite simple (as the whole story line in initial D is) a new squad of touge racers who drive miatas challenge Project D...but this time they are racing on new courses such as Akagi and Happogarahawa...so far I've only seen 2 episodes of the 4th seasons...but good things come to those who wait...any initial D fan will LOVE this brand new season =)
