After losing a street race to the legendary "Blackbird," Akio Asakura purchases his dream car: a first generation S30 Z. The car has a dark history of accidents, leading some to believe it's cursed. This includes the previous owner's sister, whose boyfriend Tatsuya, driver of the Blackbird, has found a new rival in Akio. It doesn't exactly help the situation that Akio has the exact same name as the previous owner either.(copied from anime news network)

I am starting to get Wangan now...maybe if the fansub picks up, i will be able to give a better review on this...

<8 episodes watched> As much as i liked Initial D...All of the stages, i really wanted to give Wangan a chance...but from fansubbing being slow, to alot of time between WTF?!?! is our main character so obsessed with crashing his old school Z...i think i give up...

So I have watched the first two episodes. It is definitely not Initial D, but hey if you want car racing in anime, this is the only thing going right now. I do dig how the old Z looks in this anime, just wish there was more cars...
